Wear Your Hijab Fashionably Using Hijab Accessories

Covering the head is one of the essentials of Islamic clothing rules and regulations and Hijabs play a vital role in the same. For years, people thought wearing a Hijab was a necessity, but today, with the plethora of options available, this clothing option has become more of a style statement. Gone are the days when women used to drape plain Hijabs. Today, the availability of various styles, colors and designs is giving women a chance to experiment with the Hijab fashion. Adding even more grace and charm to these Hijabs are the Hijab accessories.

Use of Hijab accessories
Even though Muslim women have limited fashionable clothing options, every woman wishes to look gorgeous in whatever she wears. Today, Hijabs of various patterns and colors are available, but the plain and simple ones look the best. But this does not mean that one needs to drape only the plain looking Hijabs. These Hijabs can be beautified and accessorized using Hijab accessories. Here is a styling guide for all the ladies who wear Hijabs.

How to use Hijab accessories
  • Drape your Hijab in a simple style by first placing it on top of your head and leaving one end longer than the other. Take hold of the shorter end while you drape the longer end round the chin and then around your head.
  • Once this is done, it is time to accessorize your Hijab. One of the most popular Hijab accessory is a Hijab pin. When the Hijab has been draped firmly, all you need to do is place the Hijab pin on top of the Hijab, and you are done! This will give your Hijab an appealing and fashionable look.
  • Apart from Hijab pins, you can also make use of jewelry like necklaces and bracelets and decorate your Hijab. A necklace can be used as an embellishment around the head's crown. By tying the necklace under the Hijab, only a part of the necklace or the pendant will be visible.
  • Another style to use a necklace as a Hijab accessory is by wearing it round your head. This will look like a headband and will give you a stylish look.
  • Bows, flowers, chains and beads are some other Hijab accessories one can opt for. Not only do they look beautiful, but also keep the Hijab secured.
By using the above mentioned Hijab accessories, you can transform your plain and simple Hijab into a super stylish one.

Islamic Swimming Suits Depicting Modesty, Decency, Comfort and Fashion

As per Islamic law, it is necessary for a Muslim woman to cover her body, except the face and the hands, in front of the general public, specially men to whom marriage is not permitted. It is also an obligation for all Muslim men to dress modestly as per the Islamic traditions. Under these circumstances, there has always been a great controversy related to what the Muslims should wear while swimming. Do you think, Muslim men and women refrain from swimming due to the restrictions imposed on their clothing as per the religion? The answer is “No”. A Muslim man or a woman can enjoy the best times at a beach or a swimming pool just like people of other religions but with some negotiations on their dressing part. The situation basically highlights the essence of negotiation in a multicultural society.

Yes, it is true that they cannot wear the appropriate skin revealing swimming costumes or a regular swimwear as per the dressing norms of their religion. But this does not mean that they cannot enjoy swimming in the scorching summer heat. They need to get the Islamic swimming suit or swimwear which is modest and decent, and as per the Islamic religion. Nowadays, the various special retail Islamic stores and the online Islamic stores have in their shelves different kinds of Islamic modest swimwear and clothes relevant to girls and boys who want to swim.

Usually, the most common design of a swimwear for a Muslim woman is like a complete body suit, made of water proof material and covering the entire body from neck to toe. This swimming costume also comes with a swimming cap, like a skull cap or Hijab that keeps the hair covered.....
