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.

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.

MODEST STYLE 101 : LONG CARDIGANS

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.

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.

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

a

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

TRIP TO DESERT SAFARI

One of my favourite combinations to wear any time of the day is Navy blue and White. I have often noticed that hijabs within darker shades of blue go really well with brown skin girls. In this particular outfit, all I did was jazzed it up a notch with few long black and grey pearl chains.

#TIP During summers try wearing sleeveless flowy tops and use no snag hijab pins to attach a shirt or cardigan to the top on both sides of your shoulder.

7 TIPS TO STYLE YOUR MAXI DRESS

Nowadays Maxi dresses are totally in fashion and the easiest way to achieve a modest look. Whether a single colour or patterned maxi dress, they are an absolute necessity in every woman’s closet throughout all seasons. They can be worn as a glamorous party wear to a casual college outfit. The only trick you need to focus is on the details of the rest of your outfit and pattern of your maxi dress.

Maxi dresses come in different material like velvet, jersey or even lace. In this article, I discuss pattern maxi dresses and how to style them.

wpid-1436678566359.jpg
Jacket: Splash Fashions Shoes: Shoe Mart

Tip 1: Choice of material

As summer approaches, soft jersey fabric is the best among the lot, to wear as that will skim your body, move with you, and be super comfortable – it’s a winner in that hot burning climate. Also, select flowy dresses with drape beautifully over your body.

#Tip 2: Layer with Solids
Always pair a pattern maxi dress with a solid cardigan, jacket or blazer to get different looks. A sky blue jeans jacket gives a perfect casual chic look (people may tend up thinking you took hours coordinating your outfits).

These long cardigans are much in trend. So grab them as soon as you get a chance.

Tip 3: Slightly formal

You could always work up a solid colour maxi dress with a black blazer and belt for a professional look. However, refrain from printed pattern at your office girls.

Tip 4: Balance it out

When dealing with patterns I always try to wear a plain hijab to give more attention to patterns. Try matching it either with the colour of your cardigan or the pattern of your maxi dress.

Tip 5: For petite woman

Select a maxi dress with small, consistent pattern or strips – just keep in mind the size of the print should be no larger than your fist polka dots are perfect. On the other hand, say a big no to anything that divides your body into sections and even to large prints.

wpid-1436676573085.jpg
When you have a multi-color maxi dress, opt for a black, white or neutral cardigans. Focus on matching your hijab and jewellery.

Tip 6: Accessorise your look

Try adding chunky bracelets and rings to your outfit and ditch those huge statement necklace as it causes distractions.

Tip 7: Shoes are Important.

Earlier maxi dress was considered casual wear but today it can be easily transformed into an elegant workplace or party wear just adding heels and clutch glamming up the outfit. Nude or neutral tone are perfect for maxi dress as they go along with the maximum of colours.

All maxi dresses were bought from a local store in Ajman, UAE.

Maxi dresses have always been my favourite go-to item when I’m lazy. So I’ll be posting a lot about how to style different maxi dress. So stay tuned!!
