I came across this new online Hijab store a few months ago, I was impressed with the selection of scarves they had, some of the designs were different from other stores. I was sent some products to review from the store. I was quite excited about this as I had been asked to style a fashion show to raise money for the flood relief in Pakistan and decided to use the Hijabs and accessories in actions so readers can not only see the designs but also ways in which they can be worn.
The scarf I was sent was from the shops fancy Hijab selection, the ‘Bow Tie’ in a Plum colour
I teamed the Hijab with a Purple ‘Grape’ Jilbab from Islamic Design House. The Jilbab is very lightweight and is from their sporty range. What was great about the combination is that it can be worn with a pair of heels to achieve a formal, evening look or equally teamed up with a pair of causal shoes or trainers it can be turned into a sporty casual outfit. The Hijab adds a touch of glamour but not too much. Here was the look put together:
I used two different coloured underscarves under the hijab, these are also available from the HijabFashion store, I placed the purple one first and then the light pink one to contrast with the colours in the hijab. The underscarves are of good quality and stretch to define the shape of your head well. The scarf itself is also made of a good lightweight fabric which is layered towards the end. It has pink piping and small bows which really gives it a feminine look about it. The only reservation I had about the scarves was the width, the width very narrow and is not generous enough to give sufficient coverage at the back, hence teamed with another scarf it looks better.
I used the extendable arm sleeves I was sent to add a bit of definition to the outfit. I turned up the sleeves of the Jilbab and added the contrasting plum colour to contrast with the hijab. The sleeves are very generous in length and can easily come above the elbow just stopping before the underarm. I am 5’6 and they come up very long.
Overall I found the products very competitively priced, of good quality and the attention to detail is apparent. As with every lady who wear hijab the width of scarves is always an issue hence this could be improved.
