Modest Forever Series : Crop Top

How to style a crop top modestly with palazzo pants or white dress. Hijabi fashion modest blogger uae fashion model dubai vlogger

Hello Stylers,
So though I’ve been MIA from my blog for a while, a few fashion posts are lined up. As I always say Hijabi fashionista have their own individualistic unique style and some trends just pass around the corner, when not matched with our modest quota. And one such drift is the Crop Top mania. With Dubai being super hot, I rely mostly on cotton and high fashion fabrics from Tissura.
Introducing a perfect blend of fashion & faith, with a new clothing brand, Modest Forever. A monochrome crop top that can be styled in two very unique ways. Either pair it with palazzo pants or layer it over a dress.
P.S. A fashion photoshoot is sometimes a nightmare, with constant stares of travellers and little kids pointing & giggling at you. But you do what you gotta do.

Slay it 2017 – Birthday Edition

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.

DAY OUT WITH JOLLYCHIC

Hello Stylers <3

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 called Jollychic – 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.

Grey Tassel Drop Women’s Handbag

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.

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.

Firstly, I was and never will be a morning person, waking up early morning is often the most difficult task I accomplish, particularly when your wake call is 5.30 am. Nights have been my best friend from school days & If you are anything like me, the ever so beautiful sunrise doesn’t look so pretty after all to you.

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.

FIVE MODEST OFFICE WEAR LOOKS

Once you set foot in the business world, coordinating office attires can be an awfully demanding chore for many. The term ‘Professional’ is much wider in scope than those expensive corporate suits and stilettos whereas in reality it signifies a smart, refreshing and feminine look.

Build up an entire formal wardrobe at the very beginning could be a pricey affair, perhaps a smart decision to invest in a few basic staple pieces like blazers, pants and a pair of stylish yet comfy heels is ideal. Besides emphasis on making more use of items present in your closet – the only trick is ‘how’ to style them modestly. Just a few tweaks here and there to how you pick your office wear is all you need to make an ever-lasting impression.

Five Modest Office Wear Looks

Look 1 – Statement Necklaces

I could never opt for a complete black look, colors defines my personal style. Therefore, I ended up deciding to add a darker berry shade pants and accessorized the look with black lace heels, a printed hijab and the most-favored element of the season – a chunky statement necklace.

Look 2 – Neutrals

When bored of those dull blacks and blues, go for the refreshing whites. No formal pants? Why not use those cuffed pants hanging in your closest or just folded your lose fit colored pants and tuck in your shirt from front and let it out at the back for modest covering. Minimizing the accessorizes to a watch and matching hand bag displays an effortless outcome.

Look 3 – Jump Suits

A solution to a comfy and relaxing attire is that jumpsuit in your wardrobe, they are more useful than you think. Toss on a blazer and some high heels to accomplish a cozy rock-chic look. It’s often said to refrain from any kind of animal print at workplace but as per me a little animal is always fine.

Look 4 – Skirts

If the non hijabi folks rock a mini skirt, then we shall be the brand ambassador of maxi skirts at business meetings. Select the less flowy and layered maxi skirts, tuck in your button-up shirt and finish it with a skinny belt. Steer clear of any vibrant color moreover keep it simple with black, greys and neutrals only. Throw in a complimenting blazer or cardigan and statement necklace to take your style up a notch.

Look 5 – Dresses

In lieu of those boring blazer and pant combos everyday, make an entrance to remember with a tasteful selection of simple knee-length dress. Incorporate a cardigan or blazer, leggings and kitten heels and you are done. An easy going semi-formal look especially for teachers.

Eradicate that false perception of formal wear being monotonous and restricting. In the current scenario an office attire is only an extension of your personal style combined with the conventional norms expected at an office. Ensure your ensembles displays modesty, elegance and current fashion trends represented by those stylish accessories. Always try finding out new styles to keep your office look innovative, warm and delightful. Unless you experiment, it will always be boring and regular.

'HIJAB-FRIENDLY' DESI WEAR

Over the years wearing hijab on Salwaar Kameez was quite a challenge for me. I was always very conscious about how i looked in them, I also refrained myself from dressing in Indian wear. But by making some tweaks here and there you may end up even loving them. From a simple sequence top to a full-fledged Anarkali, all your outfits can be hijab friendly.

GLAM IT UP WITH ACCESSORIES: Start from a fully sequenced/glittery top and pair it with a simple black or white maxi skirt. You can always notch up your outfit with your accessories, one of the most popular is the slave bracelets. Lastly, Instead of going for a golden hijab, I paired the outfit with yellow. Similarly, if the work on your top is silver, go for a grey hijab. yO
