Hijabi Spotlight #2

Maxi dress with denim jacket and turquoise pashmina scarf

Love this look! This sister has got the perfect laid back weekend look!

Cotton maxi dress (every and any shop, ChinaTown has HUNDREDS): There are hundreds in the shops, in styles, patterns and colours that suit everyone! I like the one above because of the small print (a larger print is sometimes too loud for me) and also because it has many colours in it. So you can draw attention to different colours each time you wear it, for different looks 🙂

Denim jacket (found at Mr Price or China Town): I’m not usually a denim jacket fan, haven’t owned one for years, but it can be quite a nice change to a cardigan. Whereas the cardi would make your outfit look a bit dressy, the denim jacket shouts ‘walk in the park’ or ‘saturday shopping’ 🙂

Hijab (plain Hijabs found at Sawants creations, for reasonable prices): Definitely need to wear a plain colour, like the sister in the pic has done. The turquoise brings a bold splash of colour which is refreshing and very summer-y. This can work with a bold plain pink scarf as well

Accessories (look around for one that catches your eye): I LOVE the silver necklace! Add long silver/gold necklace with chunky pendant to your must-have list! I also like that she is wearing 2 contrasting pieces around her neck. Bracelet is nice touch (see, the metal matches her pendant), you could also wear beaded bracelet or bangles in your hijab colour.

Shoes (MrPrice and Woolworths are my go-to stores for flats): Either sandals or pumps work. You could either wear a colour that matches your hijab, or a metallic that matches your accessories like she has done.

OK, done dissecting the look! 🙂 Hope it helps, happy shopping!
