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.

Why Not? Pose with the billard table 🦄 #FashionBlogger 🦄

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 😉

Slay it 2017 – Birthday Edition

slay-it-birthday-edition-modest-fashion-dubai-blogger-uae-model-hijabi-desi-blogger-delhi-blog-RED COAT splash fashion olive color hijab boy friend jeansMy fashion sense has always been something between two extremes – Glamorous Diva or Fashion Disaster. I don’t fall into the category of comfy casuals. Either I go all out with matching outfit, on fleek makeup and high heels or I became a raggedy monochrome disaster with panda eyes and slip ons. But I feel 2017 is the year of breaking the rules.slay-it-birthday-edition-modest-fashion-dubai-blogger-uae-model-hijabi-desi-blogger-delhi-blog-RED COAT splash fashion olive color hijab boy friend jeans

“I shall Slay thee with my closet.”

January always feels like the chance to start fresh. Insert FASHION RESOLUTIONs

1.Indulge in Solid Colours

Over the year, I’ve bulked up my wardrobe with quirky patterns & fusion of vibrant colours. Instead, I wanna go crazy on colours like blush pink, caramel & rusty green.

2.Buy fewer things of better quality.

I’m all up for investing in strong statement pieces like Trench Coats, Ankle Booties or Vintage Purse which can stand alone or with a killer outfit.

3.NO to the Lazy Baboon zone

In 2017, I’m letting the Lazy bird go. You never know who you bump into a random shopping trip to the mall. So, I challenge myself to step out of my comfort zone & messy PJs and improve my Fashion Game on a daily basis.

40 COLLEGE OUTFIT IDEAS FOR HIJABI

BeFunkyDesignFor those of you that don’t know, I finished my college last year and looking back on those three memorable years I remembered wanting to make a lasting impression and at times tried too hard in the initial days. Each year I got better with my outfits and by the time my college was done I selected the simplest ensembles with a slight edge to make it more interesting. Transitioning from an ‘all outfit matching’ girl to a ‘monochrome lover’, in terms of fashion I learnt way too many things in a span of three years.

We all girls get lazy at some point and my weakness was ironing my pashmina scarves ‘wrinkle free’ in mornings. My first and foremost advice would be to schedule your outfits for the entire week on Saturday evenings. Secondly instead of choosing 5 outfits, mix and match at least 6 in that way your most comfy outfit becomes your life saver on those lazy mornings.


  1. Long tops & Jumpers are your best friends when you wake up late. From baseball Tees to Victoria Secret Sweatshirts you will have so much fun styling them with classic accessories, edgy shoes and the classic highschool backpacks.

2. Layered Outfits: Spring is the most beautiful among the lot, Jeans jackets & burgundy fennel shirts loud & clear are the perfect way to go for the Spring & fall season. Layers have the unique and one of a kind ability to expand your wardrobe and give you the option to wear your wardrobe favorites all year around.

3. Maxi Cardigans & Kimonos: Stores are packed with long maxi cardigans and as a Hijabi I’m thrilled. LONG cardigans from knee-lengths to floor-lengths are massive, chunky knits for winter to thin fabrics & lace kimonos are my ultimate fav for the summers, each one end up giving you an effortless sleek style.

4. Skirts: Maxi skirts are a hijabi’s best friend to be precise, these amazing creation not only lets you feel the most comfortable but ends up being your most cherished item in a wardrobe. An evening party looks to classic boho persona in minutes you can achieve them with this trendy wardrobe essential. My personal fav is pairing  a maxi skirt with converse and jeans shirt, also, skirts make the perfect college presentation attire with a blazer.

5. Nothing can replace the versatility of a classic black maxi dress. But prints are so in this year and everyone is loving them. Plus the long kurta trend or the high slit long tops are going viral all around the globe, so why not incorporate the craze in your everyday college outfits.

6. Cute Dresses: The only dress you wanna wear this season at school is an Ariana Grande-style skater dress — and for good reason. It’s a super flattering style that will really never go out of style. A denim jacket is a back-to-school staple that will come in handy all semester. Being a hijabi pair your cute skater dress with leggings instead of stockings and accessorize with chunky necklaces and bags.

Picking out college outfits is such a dilemma for some and over the course of your college journey, your fashion style is bound to change. So stay stylish, sleek and simple.

Until next time, Toodles.

20 WAYS TO STYLE BLACK MAXI SKIRT

A ‘Black Maxi Skirt’ is a staple piece in every hijabi girl’s wardrobe but at times, we underestimate the versatility of this  black beauty. When styled correctly, you could rock a black maxi skirt in every season and occasion. And what I love about Maxi Skirt is how beautifully it works its magic on all sizes and shapes.

Black Skirt for all seasons

Maxi skirt, as we all know, is hands down one of the most relaxed and forgiving items of clothing to wear. What’s so great about them – they can easily be transitioned from an office essential to casual funky college outfit, fancy evening wears to a cute brunch look. All it takes is a teensy bit of creativity to stand out among the rest. I have rocked my black maxi skirt on multiple occasions and you could too.


MODEST OFFICE WEAR: Maxi skirts are so comfortable and modest for the workplace, they are my go to clothing hack for lazy mornings. All I did for this outfit is tucked in a polka dot shirt, a print which for me shouts “OFFICE WEAR”. I finished my look with some brownish gold accessories – a long nude color cardigan instead of a blazer for a semi-formal look, a skinny belt and gold statement necklace to add some ZING.When dressing for the office, the one must have for me is Tote handbags – if you ask me, every girl should own them in black and brown.

Modest Office Wear

  1. Neutrals are the best way to go when choosing for an interview, it gives a sophisticated lady look, but maybe adding an animal print is not everyone’s cup of tea.
  2. Corals and Mints are another way to flare up your outfits this summer and spring. 
  3. Mix in the latest fad of flirty flared blouses to your daily outfits for a special shine. Oomph up your grey ensemble with a printed royal blue hijab.
  4. For a relaxed winter look, a plain white shirt is your best friend paired up with a long cardigan and a chunky statement necklace.

COMFY COLLEGE OUTFITS: One staple piece I always played with in my college time was the mighty black maxi skirt. From summers to winter all year round I just loved that flowy cozy feel it always gave me. 

Comfy Collage Outfits with Black Maxi Skirt

  1. Every girl loves those baggy-comfy hoodies and sporty sweatshirts particularly the ones from Victoria Secrets paired with converse or flats, they just make you feel so sassy and fabulous.
  2. Jazz up your printed sweaters and boots this winter with a modest maxi skirt. For this look, always ensure your maxi skirt is on point with your height, to show off your boots. 
  3. Another popular street style fashion is to put together your fall inspired plaid or denim shirts with a skirt and sandals for a more boho kinda style.

TRENDY EVENING WEAR: Your black maxi skirt is can be your last minute life saver for either a Western or Eastern function. Black compliments all skin tones and the best part is it makes you look slimmer. Here are some fashion trends you definitely want to keep in mind when shopping for your Evening wear this year.

TRENDY EVENING WEAR - HIJABI

  1. Indian Traditional Wear: To bring your A game this wedding season, invest in a few heavy embellished drapes and tops. Sequences and embroidered tops  when paired with black skirt gets entire focus looking absolutely adorable with the least amount of efforts.
  2. For an elegant look, put together a high waist ruffled skirt with a solid color full sleeve top and a heavy statement necklace.
  3. Fashion faithful flare tops make such a quintessential statement this season. They are great for hiding your tummy too.
  4. A fur jacket will add a lift to your entire wardrobe. Tuck in a black tank top to your skirt for a dress like appearance and layer it with a fur jacket for glamorous, glitzy graceful style.

Black maxi skirts – a fashion faithful of Hijabis, can easily be dressed up or dressed down. So stand out this year with this ideal staple piece. Check out my Polyvore profile to know details about each clothing item mentioned.

HOW TO STYLE YOUR 'HIJABI' GRADUATION OUTFIT

How to style Graduation Outfit HijabiSo I graduated! Another prominent milestone of my life has been accomplished. The indignation of countless research papers, sleepless nights & hours of sleeping with eyes open in the last three years was honoured with a prestige degree last night. In the time, I was in my college, education was merely a minor part of my journey. Instead, my most cherished moments would be the ones spent outside my classroom. When you step into the corporate world, that’s when you realize, the lessons taught outside the textbooks will be the most fruitful ones. No matter where we end, there are challenges ahead of us. This journey taught me how to overcome each barrier with head held high and my heart wide open. Life may get hard and people may turn bad but Be kind! Be Respectful! Be Humble! = Be DIFFERENT !!

If you are on the final stage or just beginning your university life, all I would say is to ENJOY and cease every opportunity you get with your friends. Never miss out a party or an outing, build as many memories you can. Take infinite photographs but do not forget to have fun in between those moments just to get the perfect pose.

Inspire people around you and encourage them to excel, it’s a quality very few possess nowadays. And I consider myself extremely blessed to have discovered such friends in my college life who saw my full potential & truly motivated me to pursue my dream!! Today if I’m a blogger and excelling in this field, a huge part of this was made true only by the people I found in last 3 years.

DIY TASSEL HIJABS

The season’s most prominent fashion highlight are the gorgeous and elegant tassel hijabs. And, if you are anything like me with heaps of hijabs falling off your wardrobe or not ready to spend on one more expensive hijab. You are at the right place my lovely ladies, these DIY tassels can spike up an old hijab in just few minutes,

All you need to make Tassel HijabsItems Required

  • An old Hijab/Scarf
  • Embroidery floss/Yarn/Cords
  • Needle Threader
  • Clear Nail Polish
  • Big eye Needle
  • Scissors
  • Card Board/Fork
  • Measuring Tape

Optional: Beads and Chains

Based upon the length preference of your tassel you can either use a fork (for mini tassels) or a cardboard cutting (to create longer tassels)

To get started cut a 8 inch (Purple) and 15 inch (Yellow) embroidery floss each. The former which will be used to attach the tassel to your hijab while the latter will be wrapped around the tassel.

Method 1 Using Fork

Make tassels using a fork

Start wrapping the embroidery floss over the fork as shown in the picture. I ended up wrapping it 50 to 60 times for a fluffy thick tassel.

Remove the wrapped embroidery floss from the fork and with the help of scissors cut the middle. Next tie a knot in the middle of your tassel using the purple thread.

Create your tassel by folding it in half and wrapping the yellow thread around the tassel a few time about a half inch from the top. Apply a drop of clear nail polish on the knot tied with the yellow thread and trim off the excess.
