Clutch the Fashion with Clutch Handbags

The clutch bag is a significant accessory in a Muslim woman’s closet. A clutch can be considered as a miniature purse which contains all the essentials such as credit cards, cash, identity proofs etc. A well-chosen clutch adds the pinch of elegance to your outfit and makes you stand out in a social gathering but a wrong clutch bag may even take away the charm of your meticulously planned outfit. The specialty of such bags is their sheer size which makes  them easy to carry around.

It is very important for women to carefully match their clutch handbags not only with their outfits but also with other accessories such as shoes, belts, hijabs etc. There are different types of clutch bags available from which Muslim women can choose the best-suited one:
  • Formal Clutches-  These clutches often come in the sober shades of brown and black, and complement almost any outfit. They can go really well with plain colored hijabs.
  • Embellished Clutches- These clutches come with beautiful and decorated patterns of embellishments. These ornamental clutches go really well with jeweled hijab-headbands and give you a queen-like look for any family function.
  • Clutches also come in deeper shades of red, or in colors like green which can be carried with printed hijabs for a unique look.
There are various factors which should be kept in mind before choosing a clutch-
  • One should always go for a quality material while buying clutches. There are various clutches available in the market. One can prefer the subtle velvet clutch or can even go for long-lasting metal clutches. These are available in different sizes and colors – size should be chosen according to the needs but should be appropriate because an unnecessarily large clutch will not only be inconvenient to carry but will also make your outfit look clumsy. Colors should be creatively matched either with the dress or with any other accessory such as headbands, hijab-brooches etc.
  • One can even buy clutch bags online which come in a variety of designs. Customers should carefully match these clutches with their outfits as some of those can even dull the appearance of the outfit. Such clutches should ideally be paired with plain dresses and embroidered hijabs.

Adorning Hijabs with Pins, Headbands and Brooches

The fashion has been constantly changing and new trends are being adapted worldwide and Muslim women stand no exception to this fact. A plain black hijab may appear to be dull but there are numerous ways a hijab can be stylized and beautified as per the taste of the women who wear them.

Adding hijab accessories is the latest fashion trend and is being followed by female Muslims worldwide. A hijab can be easily stylized with brooches that give it a distinguishing and an interesting look. These hijab brooches come in different varieties and one can choose from the plethora of designs. These brooches add elegance to your plain outfit.

Colorful hijab pins can also be used to decorate your outfit and give it a fabulous look. These pins can be effectively used with cotton hijabs with decorated borders as these augment your beauty and the combination of the two can be effectively carried at family gatherings or functions. Hijab with beautiful bows or headbands is also a preferred option among Muslim women who like to keep their outfit simple yet classy. Following points should be kept in mind before stylizing a hijab-
  • It is advisable that the color of hijab should complement the dress you’re wearing. Usually matching colors are preferred by most women.
  • A hijab should be stylized simply because too many colorful pins or brooches may take away the simplicity.
  • Hijab headbands have gained huge popularity and are available in various prints. These headbands make you look traditional and stylish at the same time.
  • Printed hijabs are a great option to prettify your outfit but bows and colorful headbands should be avoided as they often look unneeded with such hijabs.
  • Brightly colored pins or heavy ornamental headbands should also be avoided with tie dye hijabs.
Embroidered hijabs are also being preferred and are in vogue. These hijabs usually come in light colors and can be easily carried with ornamental head bands for an aesthetic look. Hijab headbands with beautiful embroidery are being popularly used to decorate plain hijabs and make them look elegant.

A hijab can be decorated in many ways with numerous accessories which are available in market. One can add interesting headpieces or bonnets to a plain hijab for astonishing results. But, the accessories should be carefully chosen and should be in accordance with the hijab as well as the dress. Subtlety and simplicity along with elegance should be followed while exaggerated headbands and other such accessories should be avoided.
