Not to sound like a trite kindergarten teacher, but we all are special snowflakes, unique in our own way. Corny, but true. We all have a one-of-a-kind look to match our one-of-a-kind personalities. So when shopping and cultivating a personal style, let your personality shine through Muslim dress and Islamic attire!
Artizara outlined four popular fashion personality styles and how to dress for the one (or several) that best match you:
Classic. A classic look is built on simple cuts, clean lines and neutral colors that never go out of style. A classic wardrobe relies on pieces that can mix and match with contemporary accents, like colorful accessories, scarves or jewelry. But don’t confuse classic with boring or safe! A classic fashionista dresses both smart and stylish, often looking for high-quality pieces that will last season after season.
Trendy. Trendy is found on the opposite end of classic, but many women integrate elements of both personalities into their Muslim dress. However, those on the trendy side of the spectrum gravitate toward pieces that are the latest styles and right off the runway. Hot trends for 2015 include leopard print, colorblocking and jewel tones (among many others!).
Romantic. This can be a hard style to visually articulate, but when executed correctly, the effect can be wowing. Those who are after a soft, romantic look often seek out feminine cuts, lush colors, rich fabrics and delicate details, such as embroidery or ruffles. Elegant Muslim clothing, like the Jada Tiered Tunic Dress or the Devon Moroccan Inspired Long Tunic, are modest, but still capture the romantic, feminine style.
Relaxed. Relaxed is synonymous with easy, breezy and carefree. It’s low maintenance and straightforward. Those with relaxed style personalities enjoy fabrics that are comfortable and un-fussy (i.e., wrinkle-free!). Simple knits are key; check out Artizara’s collection of stretch jersey tops for Islamic clothing that’s comfortable but still pulled-together. Like a classic look, relaxed doesn’t have to be boring; incorporate colors and prints, while still retaining that comfortable, casual look.
