ALL IN THE DETAILS: Haute Hijab

June 2nd, 2015 at 2:10am

Within the fashion world, there is so much diversity. There are many different ways that culture can be expressed through fashion. Whether it’s due to your beliefs or your interests, there are many ways that these different cultures and subcultures can be represented through the fashion and beauty you present to the world.

I’ve seen this Fashionista around campus many times. She is one of my close friends and every time I see her around campus, she always looks amazing. Something I love in fashion is whenever anyone is able to show pride in their culture and look amazing while doing it. After seeing her look amazing all the time while taking pride in her culture, I just knew that I wanted her to be the subject for one of my articles.

I was really inspired by her look because she really let her fabulous hijab do the talking. Everything in the outfit flowed together wonderfully. There was a perfect balance of modern and modest. This Fashionista was able to show off her personality and fashion sense while remaining true to her culture and beliefs.

Her outfit consists mainly of a striped long sleeve T-shirt and a maxi skirt. These classic pieces really let her hijab shine. Her other accessories included two basic rings, which was the perfect amount for this ensemble. Her makeup choices of a bold red lip and winged eyeliner really pulled the entire look together. It was bold without being overpowering. This outfit was very balanced and nothing was competing with each other. The outfit was subdued enough to really let the key piece of the outfit shine yet still stylish enough so that it would still work as a strong outfit, whether the hijab was there or not. This Fashionista’s outfit is a perfect example of how, with balance and key pieces, you can take an outfit from ordinary to extraordinary.

How To: Start off with basic pieces, like a plain long sleeve shirt and maxi skirt. Add on smaller accessories like a dainty necklace or a set of rings. Finally, pull the look together with a bright and colorful hijab. If you want to try this look out but aren’t Hijabi, you can get the same feel with just a regular scarf.
