Khimar Online seek to provide its customers with edgy and personalised garments. It mostly consists of a large selection of hand picked scarves and accessories as well as a unique selection of abaya’s which have been carefully designed and made with a creative twist.
Their creative influence is in their fashion statement listed below this feature.
When I opened the parcel, The first thing I noticed was the quality of the material of the abayah. It is quite heavy, but not too heavy, enough to give it a dress like feel, made from a jersey like material. I also noticed the attention to detail on the garment and also it has been cut in such a way that the garment has a very feminine edge making it something you could also dress up even if you do not wear a abayah.
I’m definitely going to be wearing it as a winter maxi dress option. All you need to do is wear a cropped jacket or leather jacket to give the dress a different look and as its quite roomy, I added a belt to give it a dressy look. I would wear this kind of look for a dinner or evening out. The colour is really eye catching and because its versatile you can accessorise it a number of ways.
The scarf is one of their large silk scarves, its got ample material therefore you don’t have to worry about it being too small, the only issue I had was because it it silky I found it moved a couple of times, however if you wear a plain under scarf and pin it, it does the trick.
The detailing on the cuff of the sleeve and on the edge of the neck is very delicate and eye catching, the corsage is a really cute touch and it gives the abaya a edgy twist and what’s even nice about it is that it co-ordinaries with the matching hijab should you choose to wear it.

KHIMAR FASHION STATEMENT
Each woman’s style is a unique personal expression; we honour those differences and created Khimar. As a Muslim woman working as an accountant in an office environment, I wanted to wear modest but modern abayas. These were rare to find at affordable prices, with tailored styles & cuts. Most online boutiques did not give much choice and I couldn’t find an online boutique with variety of items. At Khimar we wanted to create this online one stop boutique catering for Muslimahs needs including variety of scarves, accessories, Halal skincare, hair care and cosmetics.
We take inspiration from cat walks, fashion magazines such as Vogue and latest high street trends. We try to implement these trends into our designs bearing in mind modesty & Hayaa. We understand the criteria of Islamic dress for a Muslimah & this is our main objective. The rest of our ideas, designs, & inspiration stem from this thought.
