Telling who you are by the hijab you wear
Posted on 01 March 2016
Most women who don’t wear headscarves underestimate the fashionability that can be reached by wearing it. Many hijabistas (women who wear headscarves) create breathtaking outfit combinations, each in their own style. A hijabista wears her hijab because of her religion and at the same time expresses herself in a very fashionable way while wearing it.
As a woman you can express yourself by the clothes you wear and this can depend on your mood and/or your unique style. As such, also women wearing hijabs express their personality and feelings by their appearance. Many hijabistas are a role model in the world of fashion. They can, for instance, dress in a very dreamy, romantic or feminine manner.
Take Dalal AlDoub, fashion and make-up blogger from Kuwait. The first thing you notice about her, is her chic and classic model like appearance. Her scarfs are plain and mostly white, but in combination with her catchy make-up and her perfect clothing style she radiates a classical beauty.
If her style appeals to you, you can find more about her on her Instagram, called @dalalid, and her YouTube account.
Saufeeya describes herself as ‘’The ambitious multiracial kid’’ and we agree with her just by looking at her pictures on Instagram. You immediately see more than fashion, you also see a piece of art. It’s awesome to see how she wears her hijab in her own unique way which intrigues in a surprising way. Her Instagram page is colourful, inspirational and arouses interest in her artful clothing style and in her personality. Enjoy yourself by looking at her Instagram page, @feeeeya. I did and I loved it!
Last but not least, the romantic, lovely and sweet looking hijabista Leena, known on Instagram as @withloveleena. She tells in her blog that she strives to become the best version of herself and that she wants to inspire others to do the same. If you want to look feminine, down to earth and modest but at the same romantic, then she is your source of inspiration. She emanates kindness and warmth in the way she presents herself in her clothing, her make-up and her facial expressions.
There are lots of possibilities to empower yourself as a hijabista: wear what you want to wear gracefully, lovingly and joyfully!
