WARDROBE ESSENTIALS : HIJABI EDITION
(PART -1)
Being in fashion isn't hard but being a hijabi with a great wardrobe is. I am not saying that we don't have fashion sense, just that we have to take some extra measures as to dress modestly.
Below are some wardrobe essentials every hijabi should own. They are great for everyday use as well as light on the wallet,so you don't go broke trying to create a halal wardrobe.
Without further ado,let's dive into the list.
*A LONG SLEEVED ABAYA*

ABAYAS ARE NOT ONLY MODEST BUT ALSO CLASSY.
Abayas are the best modest clothing there is. They are not only modest but also a classic piece that every hijabi should own.
Tip: They come in different colors as well as material,you can get the type you are most comfortable with.
* SCARVES AND UNDER CAPS*

This is pretty self explanatory, if you are a hijabi, you gotta have hijabs. By "HIJABS" I mean a good collection of scarves and under caps or under scarves ( these are worn under the scarf for keeping the hijab in place)
Tip: Some of you may not have a collection of hijabs just yet, I had recommend trying out different ways to tie a hijab or scarf. That way you can save money to buy new ones and you won't look boring wearing the same stoles on repeat. For under caps, i would recommend, making your own from any cute piece of cloth you own until you buy new ones.
*TUNICS AND LONG TOPS*

TUNICS AND TOPS ARE EASILY AVAILABLE AND ARE COMFORTABLE AS WELL.
Tunics will be your everyday best friends. They are easily available and they are not too heavy to wear as well. If you want to look modest yet not wear an abaya,then long tops or tunics are your way to go.
Tip: Tunics are long or knee length so they cover pretty well and are available in all shapes and sizes. They are great for modest clothing as well. If you are planning on wearing the Abaya later on in life then you can opt for long tops at the moment to get a hang of how Abayas work.
* MAXI DRESSES*

MAXI DRESSES ARE ABSOLUTE LIFE SAVERS
Doesn't matter if you are a hijabi or not, maxi dresses are an absolute life saver. I said this in my last article as well (which btw is about Essentials In Every Girl's wardrobe:Non Hijabi Edition). Maxi dresses have an extra ordinary skill of making you look more put together and save you plenty of time.
TIP: If you are running late, Maxi dresses should be your "go to" option. They save you the agony of selecting a top and a complimentary bottom to go with it. Just put on a dress,select a hijab and dash right out the front door.
*AN ETHNIC SUIT*

ETHNIC WEAR MAKE HIJABIS LOOK WAY PRETTIER THAN ANY OTHER CLOTHING
If you are a desi-hijabi than you ought to own some pretty Ethnic clothing. Believe me,traditional clothes like Salwar kameez,Kameez and Palazzo, Ghagra etc can make anybody look so fabulous. They act like a breath of fresh air and give you a break from the everyday clothing.
Tip: Whether you are a desi hijabi, a non-desi hijabi or not a hijabi at all,you gotta try ethnic clothing at least once in your life. You won't be disappointed with the results,just make sure you will be ready to accept the compliments once you wear them🙂
If you liked the article,do heart it, and if it gets to let's say "50 hearts" I will do a part two of this edition. Make sure to share with your friends as well.
