      Soooo, what do you lot do (if you need to do anything) to make an outfit more modest/halal? Sometimes I find really nice shift dresses which don't look right with skinnies/trousers underneath cos they're too long, or nice dresses which you can wear a cardigan over but then it becomes too layered, or covers up a nice neckline/sleeves.

      So what do you do to make it more wearable? Anything you can suggest to make it a bit more different?

      Tube-tops or tanks have cardies put on them, short dresses are either worn w/ tights or skinnies. As for deep/low necklines, I find wearing an undershirt helps. One time my mom sewed in a cloth to cover it and it looked fine. There's always a way to fix things, I guess.

      ^Haha I used to sew pieces of cloth on low necklines back in the pre-hijab days. Necklines aren't really an issue for me anymore, it's just that stuff like tights and short cardis aren't always an option for me.

      i don't buy dresses i can't think of a way to wear them. i hav seen some ladies wearing long dresses with long boots but tbh it seems awkward with hijab on but may b would look fine with a stylish knitted cap.
      i was today thinking how to wear skirts in a way it doesn't look bad n u look totally covered. i've seen some very pretty skirts today i wanna wear.

      For me...I wear a lot of leggings, pants, cardigans, full sleeved shirts under sleeveless things, etc.

      It just depends on the outfit.

      A burka. Maxis are still really in atm and for the cooler months you could wear a nice blazer over the top. Or you could wear a fitted top underneath, so you're still covered and can show-off the design. Mabrook, try maxi skirts...they're right on trend and totally covered.

      I've got maxi dresses which are perfect in summer time. ATM it's freezing so I can get away with layering, but I don't want it to get lumpy/bulky and it's not always easy to get a stylish jumper/woolly dress

      This is besides the point but it's been like 6 years since I started hijab and I'm still not able to experiment with it. I'm stuck at black.


      I love winter for hijabies . We can layer and be all covered without worrying about sweating and looking all freaky. I'm not comfortable wearing leggings under my dress :/. I feel like I'm naked. But I do wear lots of skinny jeans and sometimes they're really tight so I make sure my dress is up to my knees.

      omg we should post our hijabi outfits

      i LIKE this thread!
      In particularly in summer i just dont know what to do!
      i get very hot very easily but so hate having to wear cardigans all the time on top of strapless stuff and feel a bit silly especially when on holiday in 30+ heat
      as you all say winter is so much easier
      I also find i end up looking frumpy some days
      Ive done the sticking fabric under low necklines before too which is great
      i think we need a line of maxis for the more modest dresser!

      I think we need to have an intervention for you. Seriously, the black hijab thing is starting to bug me. If I was over there, I'd have forced some wonderfully rainbowed scarf on you by now

      Yes maxis but also other things! You can get fed up quite quickly of wearing maxi dresses/skirts all the time - hence this thread!

      i recently bought a few short skirts. I have one pleated leopard print short skirt that i wear with my straight jeans and ankle boots. I wear it with a black turtleneck ( there is a pic of me in somewhere on GS).

      I do have a few of those high-low skirts/dresses. LOVE them. Wear them with straight/skinny jeans.

      you could wear knee high boots with midi skirts/dresses.

      i'm loving vests these days. they are good for layering and covering.

      also love peg trousers.

      for i wear dresses a little higher than the knee with pants. if they are longer i would just hem them.
