In the spirit of Ramadan and modest style, we’ve used this month to explore the true meaning of Hijab and its place in the modern world. We won’t get in to that now but what we have found a number of fierce young women all over the Internet who are representing this dress code in creative and inspiring ways! Scroll on to meet some of our favorite modest influencers.


@Mariaalia

This style maven of Palestinian and Puerto Rican descent is currently one of the biggest modest influencers in the USA and it’s easy to see why. Her keen sense of style and ability to mix fashion and modesty gives off an aesthetic that is clean and effortless.


@blackish.gold

We don’t know much about this Somali-American but once we stumbled across her Instagram account there was no going back. It’s not hard to imagine the BakedOnline team getting along with this stylish foodie who has a passion for cityscapes and earthy hues.


@Rafidaaaaaaaah

Not shy of colour and lavish garments, this stylish gal gives us a peak in to life in Malaysia. From food, patterned walls, cute café set ups, her favorite vintage finds to her personal take on the traditional hijab, we’re obsessed!


@Kauthar_B

It’s no secret that the BakedOnline team have been shamelessly stalking this local babe for a while now. Through her love for the outdoors, photography and style it’s evident Kauthar makes a point of living modestly in all aspects of life.


@Ascia_AKF

A Kuwaiti fashion designer, model and blogger, Ascia has successfully accomplished ‘Girl Boss’. Constantly reinventing her look by experimenting with different turban styles and layering statement pieces, it’s easy to see why she has over 2 million followers.

Which modest influencers are your faves?

    Why wouldnt u include local Aqeelah Fashion Breed and Nabilah Kareem ? Best modest islamic fashion bloggers in cape town

    • Marien Yusuf

      I follow and love both Aqeelah and Nabilah. I believe this blog post is only a sample of modest influencers. There are so many bloggers, each with their own unique sense of style, that it would simply take too long to include them.

        Hi ladies! thats correct we wanted to include everyone, not kidding we had such a long list it took forever to choose influencers we thought our readers may not know about yet. We love both Aqeelah & Nabilah! They are slaying in their hijab. Hope this clears up the confusion Xo Aisha
