5 Simple Ways to Upgrade Any Modest Islamic Outfit

Are you looking for a way to update your old abayas or dress up a plain hijab? Our tips will help you change up your look without breaking the bank.

 

There is common misconception today that modest Islamic clothing has to be boring or plain. In actuality, though, modest clothing just might be the perfect foundation for a truly fashionable look. Think about it; desirable Islamic outfits for women are sleek, subtle, and designed specifically for the modern, elegant women. They can be had in solid colors or in a variety of gorgeous patterns, and in a range of styles and profiles. To create an unforgettable look, pair a modest outfit or piece of clothing – like an abaya or hijab, with Islamic jewelry, accessories, and other adornments to upgrade your look and add a touch of elegant style to your ensemble. The following five simple ways to upgrade your look can be had without destroying your budget.

Necklaces

Allah KhamsaBefore leaving the house, consider adding a statement necklace to your ensemble to create a beautiful and classic look. A statement necklace is specifically larger than a typical one, and it is designed to draw the eye toward the pendant hanging from the chain. To meld both classic styling with culture and tradition, consider an Allah Khamsa necklace. This piece features the “Khamsa” symbol that is thought to ward off the evil eye, and features beautiful calligraphy, a two tone antique silver and polished gold finish, and glittery cubic zirconia adornments. Not only is this necklace a thing of beauty, but it also holds real cultural significance and will help to remind you of the importance of your faith.

 

 

Al-Fatiha_necklaceAnother option is the Al-Fatiha necklace, a piece of jewelry that not only looks amazing, but also draws inspiration from the teachings of the of the Quran. The Al-Fatiha, or “The Opening,” contains seven unique prayers that will remind you of the noble Quran. At the same time, the Al-Fatiha necklace adds a subtle, traditional, yet beautiful upgrade to virtually any modest outfit.

 

 

 

 

Patterned and textured fabrics

Patterned_and_textured_fabricsIslamic accessories can dramatically improve the look of practically any modest outfit, but sometimes it’s the little things that really shift the direction of an ensemble – like the texture of the fabric or the sheen of the print. This season sees a fun and eclectic mix of textures and prints, as well as an unexpected resurgence of out of the box pairings of colors, prints, and innovative fabrics. To upgrade your wardrobe this year, consider adding a contrasting silk wrap with hand beaded embroidery. The soft, subtle elegance of silk pairs wonderfully with casual choices like plain shirts or simple cotton maxi dresses. Or, experiment with unique colors or patterns that you may not have thought would match with a basic Islamic dress. The great thing about creating new ways to match patterns and textures is that it expands the potential of your wardrobe!

 

 

 

 

Create lightweight layers

Lightweight_layersOne of the easiest ways to create a unique and vibrant look is to add a lightweight topper in a silky fabric. Even if your base layer is a fairly modest dress or pants/shirt combination, you can create an entirely new aesthetic by incorporating a fun top like this Chiffon Floral Poncho. In fact, you can even transform a casual outfit into a formal look by ordering a topper in a shimmering, metallic fabric or one that offers unique accents or customized details. Our Chiffon Floral Poncho features show-stopping good looks and incorporates drawstring tassel closures, slight gathering in the back, and a shaped silhouette. You can completely change your look by simply ordering one new top!

 

 

 

 

Go the unexpected route

Shoulder_Body_Jewelry_in_GoldThey say that fortune favors the bold, so embrace your inner diva and feel confident in wearing bold, versatile, and elegant body jewelry. While some may consider this ensemble upgrade option a little outrageous for daily wear, there is no reason why you have to wear the same old thing every day! In fact, why not overdress a little during the workweek or when out around town? Add a piece of body jewelry like our Shoulder Body Jewelry in gold, and you’ll instantly feel like royalty. This piece can transform even the most basic of tops or dresses into a fashionable piece that will look glamorous and sophisticated. Upgrade your look for a lot less money than you thought was possible by adding unique and edgy body jewelry.

 

Color is everything!

To make your wardrobe really pop and improve the versatility of your collection of clothes and accessories, make sure that you know how to combine colors to maximize your available looks. Most of us cannot afford to buy new outfits every day, so simply purchasing a few new pieces in bright, bold colors can add life to your closet and bring a smile to your face.

Order a long maxi skirt in a bold hue and then pair it with your choice of top to create a vibrant yet classic look. Or, opt for a pair of dressy wide leg pants for a sophisticated profile that’s classically chic. Free flowing designs and a variety of fabric textures can help bring out a more fashionable look without straying too far from your modest tastes.

 

If you are looking for a way to create a set of new outfits or looks this year, and you don’t want to break the bank, consider the five style tips above. You will look great, feel amazing, and save money all at the same time when you partner with the modest fashion experts at Artizara. So dress up your old abaya dress or hijab with on-trend Islamic jewelry, new or innovative accessories, bold new colors, prints, or textures, or simply a new topper that can transform your look from simple to stunning. Don’t shy away from a more fashionable you – it is right around the corner!
