So, in aid of that I have decided to show you how I would style Islamic attire. It's actually quite tricky as you have to cover everything apart from your face, hands and feet... and the clothing can't be tight as to reveal your curves.
This is how I would wear it! All sets created by me on Polyvore.
Now if some of you object to this saying it's too colourful or too stylish, then what I have to say is this... We are living in the 21st century and it's very difficult not to be inspired by trends. There's no reason for you not to express your style whilst trying to be modest.
What do you think?
Just a note: Make up wise, I really disagree with girls slapping it on when wearing a headscarf during the day, it just defeats the whole concept! I would say just enhance what you have and keep to a "natural" theme.. Eye kohl is sunnah so winged eyeliner is great :) which is why the term "Arabic eye" is around as many Arabic women go crazy with the eyeliner! I think a more stylised make up look is only acceptable on a special occassion or evening, but even then provocative red lips is a NO NO!
