Add a little spring bling with Islamic jewelry

“I love jewelry,” confesses actress Sofia Vergara. “Rings, earrings, bracelets, necklaces, you name it.” Singer and actress Jennifer Lopez echoes the sentiment with a piece of her own advice, suggesting, “Women should never go without earrings. Passing on them is an opportunity missed.”

Islamic Shirts that Suit Muslim Men to a T

“You can make jeans and a T-shirt super stylish,” suggests Phillip Lim. The designer’s sentiment is confirmed by fashion icon Giorgio Armani who says, “I’ve always thought of the T-shirt as the Alpha and Omega of the fashion alphabet.”

While there’s no question T-shirts are a stylish staple for the masses, it’s often difficult to find brands that boast messages suitable for Muslim men because, as actor Ashton Kutcher puts it, “Your best T-shirt should be like your bed; it just feels like you are home when you are in it.”

Fortunately, Artizara offers California-madeT-shirts that are made of 100% cotton for comfort and feature Islamic designs by graphic artist Peter Gould and master calligrapher Haji Noor Deen to represent your personality and beliefs.

Guys who gravitate towards the great cities of our world will appreciate Arabic script against an urban skyline with an outline of a mosque featured on one design, while men who enjoy music of the heart can don an image of an Oud—an ancient Middle Eastern stringed instrument which is believed to have been invented by Lamech, the sixth grandson of Adam—on another designer shirt.

The Arabic words for ‘patience’ and ‘balance’ appear before an Islamic zellij mosaic on additional baby-soft T-shirts for men. Artizara’s line of Muslim clothing also includes another shirt that sports the word ‘salam’ which means‘peace’.

Islamic men can project the power of prayer no matter the weather by wearing either a short-sleeved prayer shirt or a long-sleeved zikr shirt that includes an image of prayer beads known as Tasbeeh.

With such a variety of styles, T-shirts can become a fashion staple in Muslim clothing for men.

Factors to consider when shopping for Islamic clothing for kids

The 5 C’s of Islamic Clothing for Kids

Buying Islamic clothing for children has never been simpler since there are now designs that playfully incorporate Arabic letters and Islamic architecture onto shirts for little girls and boys. Of course when it comes to shopping for kids, there are additional factors to consider…

Color
Many little girls prefer Muslim dresses in pretty pink and purple, although unisex colors such as green and blue appeal to all. It’s never too early to learn black goes with everything, however bold tones such as orange and red can energize your children—and make them easier to locate on the playground, at school or in a crowd.

Comfort & Care
Children have sensitive skin so look for Muslim clothing made of 100% cotton or 100% cotton fleece to ensure an amazing hand feel. It’s important to note, cotton garments should be washed in cold water without bleach and hung dry to ensure they retain their baby-soft touch.

Cost & Customer Service
Kids grow fast so it makes sense (and cents) to shop for quality items that are on sale. Currently Artizara has children’s tops that regularly sell from $24-$35 marked down to $15-$12; and offers approximately $10 off little hoodies originally priced at $24-$34. Furthermore, if you are not totally satisfied with your purchase, Artizara will give you your money back with its hassle-free return policy and courteous customer service.

Muslim Dresses Echo India’s Fashion Week

Amazon India Fashion Week just concluded in New Delhi. The five-day fashion event included designs from 25 of India’s most acclaimed designers who wowed attendees with fashions featuring Western/Indian fusion. Highlighting ethnic beauty, the collections collectively showcased:

  • Pablo Picasso-inspired dots on printed tops,
  • pre-stitched saris,
  • colorful ensembles with an emphasis on burnt orange and deep red,
  • and a finale of dresses with draped fabric.

Although the fashion show took place miles away, that doesn’t mean women in the US can’t incorporate these trends into their own wardrobes, especially with Islamic clothing.

Artizara has a soft Kina button-down top with dots. Made of 100% cotton, the item includes buttoned patch pockets and a rounded shirttail hemline.

Blending the essence of the fashion show’s pre-stitched saris with the recent runway color trends is Artizara’s Ella floral embroidered long tunic inrusset. Delicate embroidery on the front and back yoke of this Muslim clothing item evoke Boho chic sophistication in a flattering feminine way.

Like the show’s finale of rich-colored and long draped gowns, Artizara’s formal Muslim dress boasts a burgundy hue with matching scarf to drape down. The iridescent silk chiffon is hand pleated with asymmetrical panels and a layered cascade skirt that is longer in the back to form a train worthy of any red carpet or fashion runway.
