Ramadan is undoubtedly the best time of the year for most muslims. Many women enter into hijab, myself included, as a symbol of humility and modesty. Some of us use the month of ramadan as a turning for the future to some day enter into a modest way of dressing.
In celebration of my favorite month of the year we collaborated with photographer Rizqa Barnes to develop a Ramadan Style Guide for our modest readers.
Look One | The Newsboy Cap
The newsie revival has been seen on all our favorite off duty supermodels and celebrities recently. It may seem slightly intimidating but the key to styling this piece, without looking like Oliver Twist, is to go rogue and add it to any look. It goes with pretty much everything. If you’re feeling shaky about you newsboy cap, simplify the look with denims and a plain top. Hijabi’s don’t be afraid to play with layering headgear, its a really fun way to showcase your personal style while maintaining your modesty.
Look Two | The Canadian Tuxedo
Who doesn’t revel in a denim on denim ensemble, I certainly do! This H&M two piece really ups the anti with its lace up additions. Adding white boots to create a mod look.
To create a modest feel drape your scarf ever so slightly and be sure to buy the jacket one size too big. Shoulder shrugging coats were literally made for hijabi’s don’t be afraid to shrug your jacket, creating a simultaneous cool and covered getup.
Look Three | The Statement Sleeve
We love a good sleeve moment over at Baked HQ, and I kinda went crazy for this embroidered bell sleeve top. Reminiscent of a tracksuit top,It comes in both black and white. Pairing it here with pleated culottes and boots, the look is all about exploring textures in the same tone.
Big shout out to the Silo Hotel Cape Town for allowing us to capture these looks at their hotel. Stay tuned for more style guides soon.
