Modest fashion is evolving. The limits to styling the hijab are narrowing. This allows Muslim women to express themselves more freely without totally departing from traditions. With modest fashion inching its way towards the runway, more Muslim women are exploring accessories and styles that suit their hijabs.
Last spring, muted neutral hues, and large floral designs dominated hijabi fashion. Now that it’s summer, Muslim women can try on more experimental and colorful styles that suit the fun and vibrant mood of summer.
Here are just some of the trendy ways to wear your hijab for this summer.
Trendy Ways to Wear Your Hijab for Summer
Pairing your hijab with statement earrings is one of the trends emerging this summer. Hijabi fashion bloggers usually wear hoop earrings with their hijabs. Most of these earrings are in neutral and metallic colors. If you don’t have hoop earrings, you can wear other kinds of statement earrings that match your hijab’s colors and style.
The sun is shining brighter this summer, so it’s a must for you to wear sunglasses. But you shouldn’t just wear any sunglasses, but the big beautiful ones that shape your face perfectly. Pair your hijab with aviators in citrus colors for a funky look. You can also wear sunglasses with wide rims in black or white to look elegant as classic Hollywood star Aubrey Hepburn.
Floppy Wide Brim Hats
Wearing a floppy wide brim hat over your hijab is a stunning and sophisticated way of protecting your face from the sun’s harmful rays. Floppy wide brim hats come in a variety of fabrics and textures like polyester, linen and palm weave. Polyester and linen floppy wide brim hats suit urban environments while wearing a palm weave hat suits the beach or farm better.
Turban hijabs look very chic, especially if you wear them with long floral skirts or a cool pair of jeans. Wearing a turban hijab also helps your head and face withstand the heat.
If you’re not comfortable rocking the turban hijab, go for the next best alternative: bows. Tying bows on your hijab not just looks cute. It also gives your neck more room to breathe in the sweltering heat.
Wear a hijab in technicolor with a block color dress to make it stand out. This style suits Muslim women who live in highly cosmopolitan cities.
Summer is the time when fire trees, bougainvilleas, and sunflowers are in full bloom. With so much color around you, wouldn’t it be fun to top your hijab with a flower crown in summer colors?
Summer colors are fun and vibrant. But if they seem too loud for you, then you can opt to wear beach-appropriate spring colors. Wear hijabs and tops in light yellows and blues to bring out your femininity.
Floral Patches and Jeans
Look casual and chic by wearing your hijab with slightly distressed jeans with floral iron-on patches and a plain top in neutral colors.
