See The Light In Light-Colored And Light-Weight Hijabs

The Basic Summer Hijab Tips of Muslim Girls

With the summer sun and higher temperatures come plenty of opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. But sometimes too much of a good thing can be bad, especially when it comes to heat stroke. That’s why it’s important to don Islamic clothing that is both lightweight and light-colored during the warmer weather.

Be cool

Similar to taking breaks in an air-conditioned room or drinking lots of water, wearing loose fitting modesty clothes that are made of a thin breezy material can help you keep your cool. In fact, designers often choose silk, cotton and linen for their summer collections since these fabrics are fashionable and free of heat distress affects which can include odor and perspiration.

Wear Modest Maxi Dresses to the Max

Great thinkers have always been focused on the virtues of modesty.

The Western world also noted the merits of modesty, as British writer Arthur Helps wrote, “There are no better cosmetics than a severe temperance and purity, modesty and humility, a gracious temper and calmness of spirit.”American author Louisa May Alcott added, “The great charm of all power is modesty.”

Centuries later, it’s no wonder modest dresses have remained a fashion staple for women around the world—and women online. Today, Artizara offers easy-to-order modest maxi dresses, kaftans and long sleeve gowns suitable for formal occasions and everyday wear.
