THE ONE WITH #SHIRTGOALS

Good Evening Stylers,

So What can be more satisfying than finding a piece that screams your soul inside out?  This gorgeous A/W shirt has ‘me’ written all over it, honestly, I couldn’t hold my excitement when I got one of a kinda plaid shirt delivered at my desk. So not only is this my ideal pattern for this season, but also the cotton flannel fabric is the perfect to snuggle up in, during a movie or date night. Rather than the more obvious red plaid shirts, I just love to twist my ensemble around the shades of navy blue & military green. I love flannel prints & embroidered fabric from Tissura.

I knew this shirt deserved a part on my blog when I turned it around.  It has “University of Bloggers” printed on, I couldn’t believe my eyes or my luck. I was beyond thrilled to collaborate with Splash Fashion to showcase their new collection highlighting Bloggers and Vloggers.

I know my fellow bloggers are already going GAGA on this unique totally relatable fashion hit. Perhaps, now you know where to find it?

Follow me on Instagram and Facebook to stay updated on my latest collabs.

Until Next Time,
Love Rahma

 

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.

EID MUBARAK LOVELIES

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.

TAKING A BREAK – BIRTHDAY BLUES

Hi guys,

Much of my week days are rolled up in boring monochrome formal wear and all my weekends are spent cuddled up tight in my blanket. So my fashion posts are on the back seat for a while.

The ‘high slit’ mimicking eastern trend is grasping stores more than ever before! I walk pass Splash, Forever21 and Zara to see a handful of similar styles that offer the ‘high slit’ which is the main cut in traditional Asian wear! Remember those day’s you’d be embarrassed to wear your traditional clothes out? I must disappointingly admit, I was one of them – well now this ‘style’ is at the height of fashion!

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.

Skincare indulgence is always a good idea. And a gift set in pretty packaging? Yes please! I have personally used the Watermelon & Pink Grapefruit scent and it is divine.

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.

'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.

Desi Look

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

TRADITIONAL: Next, why not glam your old Pakistani kurta’s by high heels and a tika, you don’t always have to wear a daisy chain on your hijab. Plus, You can easily rule an all black outfit with a bold lip colour.

AFTERNOON/TEA PARTY: While buying a salwar kameez, my hijabi friends remember the three colour rule. Prefer dressed with maximum of 3 colours  and match all your accessories within those colours.

EVENING PARTY WEAR: Anarkalis are one of the best choice for parties or marriages. Don’t be stuck with matching your hijab with the exact shade of your dress, perhaps select a harder shade of your dress. Instead of beige or gold, try on a dark brown hijab. Lastly, for the evening parties you can go all out and accessories your hijab with a beautiful daisy chain and feel like a princess with her own tiara.
