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.
Green is a color of harmony, it symbolizes prosperity and progress. It’s a color which soothes the eye and calms the soul.

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 😉

My 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.
“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.
Recently I was up for a shopping spree but a budget friendly one (I deserve some brownie points for being super careful) on a HongKong based website calledJollychic– famous for the stunning red logo, seasonal offers & countless commercials on facebook. As I’m a planning an overseas trip soon, I thought of trying out some new affordable online stores to get my bags packing.
After constant back and forth of adding items to my wishlist from their fabulous clothing lines & huge accessories collection, I happily settled on some travelling essentials & wardrobe staples. Though, I’m quite sceptical about online shopping from international stores mainly because of the delivery time, Jollychic did surprise me in this very department (definitely in a good way) by their amazing association with local & foreign shipping & logistics companies.
The final order was placed on 18th Sept at Jollychic and the items were delivered at my doorstep via Aramex on 30th Sept.
So here is a quick fashion haul of what I picked up and if you are interested in giving Jollychic a try, use my special coupon code ” rthijabstyles “ for a 10% off on your order. Plus, you can avail, free express shipping on purchases worth 99$ and up.
Plus Size Black Patchwork Lace Top
One can never have too many black shirts precisely because you can always dress them up for an event or snuggle in them during office hours yet look presentable. The outfits you can recreate with this simple top brings in a whole other level of possibilities.
6 Pcs Classic Sterling Geometric Pattern Handbag Set
I’ve been wanting to invest in a good travelling combo and this one was a love at first sight sort of thing. Replicating the oh so famous Gucci pattern, I thought this particular combo was rather classy & super convenient for vacations with so many choices from a wallet to an oval bag, clutch and much more.
When I added this particular dainty purse to my Jollychic cart, I’ll admit it was an impulse buy, mainly because of my huge fetish with tiny tassel bags & clutches. But this was beautiful little gem does compliment my recent ‘monochromic’ personality & oomphs up those boring rags I wear on my massive shopping fever days.
Latest fashion trend making a buzz across the hijabi downtown is the contemporary long cardigan. How to style and wear to find the true bohemian, Coachella inspired kimonos to Abaya depicting floor length maxi cardigans or oversized chunky knitted woollen ones is the hottest news in the modest blogosphere. This post would be focusing the former and tips on the latter will be up soon.
Traditionally a layering staple, this super popular hijabi street fashion trend is turning heads around at every corner today. Ruling my wardrobe from last winter, these playful gems can be dressed up or down with a blink of an eye. Here are my personal favourite outfits I created with this exciting piece of clothing and my top 3 styling tip.
1. Three Color Rule: Sticking to the colour limit is always the safest bet but don’t be afraid to play around with colours, either with neutrals & monochrome tones or bright summer shades, color blocking is so in trend.
2. Accessories can be your best friends in turning any ordinary boring attire into high street fashion. Perfect for a night out on the town or a black tie party, Statement Necklaces glams up any outfit without feeling like too much. In all seriousness, vintage jewellery that looks like it’s been robbed right off of Queen Mumtaz’s neck is very in right now.
3. Let your shoes do the talking: Footwear can play a huge role, converse tennis shoes have a more cute, hipster vibe while silhouettes are all about confidence, sexy and elegance.

Last night I was wearing this gorgeous cherry blossom print maxi dress I picked up from Splash Fashion on a random shopping splurge. Floral prints are my favourites for summer and &spring season plus, the fabric is super soft and flows so beautifully. As I wanted to draw all attention to this elegant my dress, I kept the rest of my outfit undertone and simple.
Pairing it with black leggings and kitty heels with gold details. To oomph up my hijab style just a tad bit I added a gold statement necklace I got from a Dollar Store in Ajman.
Hope you ladies are inspired !! Stay tuned to my Instagram for more inspirations.
Sticking to my newly found for long cardigans here is another simple yet sophisticated OOTD inspiration. Adding a flair to this monochrome knee length cardigan which I picked up randomly from Jennyfer, I decided to with a red top with silver details running down the middle and abandon my all time favourite black jersey hijab with a brown cotton hijab with red tassels.
Is it just me or Muslimah’s all around the globe have initiated the newly found love for styling maxi skirts in the sassiest way possible. Gone are the days, when they were pushed back in the closet for those boring evening parties. Today, the youthful, quirky Maxi skirt trend is ruling the street fashion wonderfully.
As I stepped out of the mundane trend of skinny jeans persona, I was looking to bring in a more traditional modest feel to my fashion blog posts. What’s better than collaborating with another Hijabi Blogger?. Say hello to inspirational Safiya from the My Inspired Lifestyle all the way from South Africa.
Restarting the popular Fashion OOTD column, you get daytime & evening party look from one very romantic red maxi skirt.
For the summery feel, I rocked my red skirt with a lightweight black & white checkered throw over shirt I got from a nifty corner at Ajman Karama for super cheap. Is there another fabric more perfect for summer than that crisp checkered goodness?
Going with Hijabi street fashion, I wore my newly bought Forever 21 red tennis shoes. Bring back the 70s trend, don some tennis shoes or sneaker with a narrow maxi skirt for that revolting and innovative look.
Accessories wise, I went on all neutral. This camel brown jersey hijab is my current go to hijab, effortless, breezy & wrinkle free everything which makes it perfect for a lazy girl in summer. Lastly, my Sandy colour workplace tote bag which I carry everywhere made a special appearance is this OOTD.
A perennial staple in every hijabi’s wardrobe, maxis skirts or dress are truly a blessing for all women. The versatility of a maxi is unquestionable, get a boho, formal or casual look this summer with just a simple maxi skirt.
O.K so this is a post that has been waiting for a long time to be posted. On my recent Instagram post, many of you ladies wanted to see a modest lookbook for summer. So here is my successful merge in 7 different ways between style with modesty. I put this outfit together that would look great for a casual lunch date or even a night out. I’m usually into loud prints and bright colors so this is actually quite a big change for me.
Looking through this post, I hope you get inspired to try some of these outfits yourself. As summer is already saying a Bright & Sunny Hello to all in Dubai, my outfits would have more of pink, blues & white vibe throughout the post, but black is an essential for me in all seasons.

How cute are palazzo pants? I’m absolutely in love with how modest yet edgy they make your entire outfit. Another thing I love is, it’s versatility, last time I dressed it up elegantly for a date night with my friends, check out the outfit here. This weekend, I attended Kempinski Hotel Ajman’s Friday Garden Brunch which is a luxurious feast of five different cuisines with a view of a beach (Blog posting coming up soon). For a more calm, relaxed look appropriate for the beach, I paired up my white palazzo pants with a red lace loose top and a lightweight fabric hijab.
As you all loved my last beach-inspired look, (click here to check it out) I thought of sharing another idea with you, lovely ladies. <3
What I’m wearing: Top – Zara, Palazzo Pants – Splash Fashion (old collections) but here are some similar ones, Bag – Vinci, Hijab is from Safeer Center I believe but you can find similar ones here & here.
For 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.
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.
Much Love, Rahma
