Colors! You have to Hit this Year!

NaErasescapadesColors, this whole universe is made up of colors. They define mood, culture, temperature, and most importantly seasons.

It’s literally been 9 months since the year 2017 started and it was an exciting year filled with surprises for each and every one of us. 

The Altruistic: Pastel Pink

This shade is a sober mix of pure white and red. It represents compassion, love and strength; hence we have given the title ‘altruistic’. It is a color of all seasons. When it comes to spring we picture beautiful scenery filled with cherry blossoms. When it is summer we can picture a delicious cone of strawberry ice-cream and when it is winter we can imagine the rosy cheeks of a toddler now that’s cute. Even our favorite candy is the color of pastel pink, cottony candy as cottony as the fluffy clouds. This is an amazing color that can be complemented with different colors according to the occasion.And here the hijab blogger- Rahma, has donned a pastel pink gilet along with a white top and blue jeans. It’s a perfect outfit for a lunch date with your friends and family.

The Foliage: Army Green

Green is a color of harmony, it symbolizes prosperity and progress. It’s a color which soothes the eye and calms the soul. There are many shades of green such as olive green, yellow green, fresh green, light green and army green. Here we are talking about Army green, a fierce yet promising shade. In context of fashion this color is famous. Camo print is quite famous with youngster nowadays and army green is a perfect color for camo prints. And again Rahma rocked this color as she paired a black Maxi dress with an Army green over coat. This look was perfectly coupled with a brown hijab. This look is a spot on for a cold winter college day!

The Angelic: White

Whether it’s vanilla ice-cream or moving clouds, Shaun the sheep’s wool or a bridal gown, everything looks so pure and beautiful because it is in the shade of white and this shade is heavenly. It symbolizes peace and purity. This shade is a basic shade in the fashion industry. From a hijab to a ring, from a basic tee to ballerinas, this shade is a favorite! Also Rahma the hijabi icon rocked this color; she paired a black maxi skirt with a plain white top along with a printed hijab. This look is our personal favorite 🙂 the whole look is a basic combination of black and white which is bang on! We must say she has a great sense of dressing. And this color is definitely one that you need to hit this year and every following year…its evergreen!

The Allure: Lavender

Lavender is a shade that depicts luxury and royalty.And one can effortlessly look like a princess by simply wearing this shade. This is a perfect shade for ball gowns and Maxi dresses. Lavender is a challenging colour to pull off but our very own style diva – Rahma looks absolutely alluring in a pinky- lavender Maxi dress. And she had beautifully matched this Maxi dress with a denim jacket and a purple hijab. The best part of this outfit is a ring bracelet in the shade lavender. She has used minimal accessories and that is the beauty of this look. Lavender looks as beautiful as it smells. It is a colour which can make you look totally different from the crowd, but definitely in a good way 😉 Lavender screams of luxury and this particular fabric is definitely on the pricey side of fashion market but the gorgeous flow and how it beautifully drapes around Rahma is such a statement piece. Click here to shop for luxury fashion fabrics like this dress. 

Zesty: Urban Orange 

When we first listen to the very words orange we dislike it we rather think of it as something that is not appealing but when we see it, the very color reminds us of autumn. The beautiful colors of autumn. Not many of us have tasted pumpkin spice latte but thinking about it sounds tasty. Just like these appealing things let’s see how orange-brown can be worn in the fashion world. You can style orange-brown pants with a navy blue shirt or even grey shirt. Here we are back with another look by Rahma, she has worn orange-brown pants with a white t-shirt and a brown hijab to add a bit more style she has worn an orange patterned gilet. This is a very different combination but styling it right will raise eyebrows in admiration!

This was our take on “Colours you need to hit this year!” hope you all liked this post as much as we enjoyed writing it. And do mention which color /shade you love the most. See you In the next post, until then happy styling 😉

FASHION FAVORITE TRENDS FOR SUMMER 2017

2017 hijabi fashion trends with rthijabstyles rahma talwar - red tag fashion dubai store collaboration (4)Every time styling an outfit and prepping for an appearance comes into the picture, my mind runs a tag team tournament between realistic fashion inspo, my current mood and the amount of time & effort I’m willing to put in, that particular day. Let’s break it down to a simple math of 30min – complete makeover session for an event, a 10min Ronde Vu if I’m going to the mall or meeting a friend and a 2min quick outfit change (PJs to anything decent visible) to pick mom up from office. No greater pleasure than chauffeuring her around town (right).
Bloggers talk about ramp walks & fashion magazines a bit too seriously like…well, their best friends. Don’t get me wrong I adore the whole new take on Modest/Hijabi Runways shows (Hijabi hills aka Ruba Zia’s latest collaboration with D&G, Damn! I hear a glass being shattered somewhere) but it’s not something I could replicate and be comfortable in.
Though I call myself a fashion blogger, I don’t blindly follow trends, I carefully pick out my favorites and mold them into something modern-modest. Lately, my inspiration board is covered by local Instagram fashionistas & content creators who understand hustle and associated with Dubai’s steaming heat without risking style. Agreed, we all value our comfy cotton sun dresses & fabrics, (honestly this summer I purchased so many fabrics from Tissura Store)  but some trends got me quite excited this year.

Flare Sleeves

This year is all about letting your sleeves slay the fashion game. Those baby blue & white Bell sleeves, kimono sleeves or even the frill ones (just like an umbrella) are featured everywhere online and can be found basically anywhere. And there you go! As a hijabi, we don’t have to worry about layering with these long sleeves. The best thing about this shirt is that it’s super versatile and under 50AED (from Red Tag)! Yes, I’m always nervous to wear white (too clumsy), but who can beat a 50Dhs white shirt?

Skirts + Stockings

Back in the day, I never fully enjoyed the Hi-Low skirts rave, because I refrained myself from stockings. This particular pink skirt took a back seat in my closet for almost 2 years but recently, modest fashion divas began rocking below the knee pleated skirts again and my skirt got a second life. Doesn’t a hot pink skirt with black velvet boots scream the perfect combination?

Bomber Jackets

Are you somebody who is into street style? Are you a fan of pastel colors? In my case, I love both! So you can imagine my jump when I got this unique one of a kind vintage looking bomber jacket (btw on a sale for just AED 52). So there I was. At Red Tag Store, completely obsessed with this 90s piece even before I tried it on.
You see, both black & rose gold are my kryptonite, I always go searching (splurging) for them and this particular piece reminded me of the famous Youtube Twins, Niki & Gabi. I mean it has Gabi’s punk, don’t give a damn kinda attitude and Niki’s elegant classy vibes.
Total Outfit Budget:
  • White Top: Red Tag Fashion, 49 Dhs
  • Skirt: H&M, 30 Dhs
  • Ankle Boots: JollyChic, 65 Dhs
  • Bomber Jacket: Red Tag Fashion, 52 Dhs
  • Jewelry: Lovisa MiddleEast
A hijabi lifestyle issues a standard guarantee of NO ‘bad hair day’ (kinda epic for #lazygirls like me) but we do go great lengths to carve out a modest outfit once we step out of the house (Mix -matching your hijab with the dress is a real struggle, my friend!)
On a closer inspection, while writing this blog post, I realized all these trends have resurrected from the gorgeous era of the 80s and 90s. Customized denim jackets to colorful mirrored glasses, ruffles to fishnet stockings, street and runways are bringing back trend from our parent’s beloved retro years (how cool is that?) and we get to spice them up with our creative mojo.
What about you? Have you tried these trends? If not you should totally give it a try!
With warm hugs!!
