Islamic and Muslim Dressing for Your Personality

Islamic and Muslim Dressing for Your Personality

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.

Muslim and Islamic Clothing Trends for Women

Muslim and Islamic clothing doesn’t have to compromise style. Whether you’re dressing for a special occasion or everyday wear, the modest attire from Artizara it up to date with the latest trends and styles. Here are some classic and trendy styles for today’s Muslim clothing:

Colorblocking and bold tones pop
Classic black and muted earth tones have their place in the wardrobe, but bold colors are very popular for the upcoming 2015 seasons. The Allie Pleated Color Block Long Abaya Dress, for example, features bold colorblocking in a rich royal blue or a lovely aqua tone. Paired with a matching hijab, this maxi dress features the latest trends while retaining the desired level of modesty. Beyond dresses, colorblocking can be found in casual tunics, activewear and more.

Activewear is actively in style
Active wear is always on point in the fashion world, but it’s important to update your workout wardrobe to avoid looking too 1980s. The Elian Modest Long Sport Jacket is great for exercising, running errands around town or any breezy fall or spring day. Add a One-Piece Sport Hijab for a trendy workout look that is also functional.

Little details for a big impact
Modest doesn’t have to mean boring! Banish that misconception! Embroidery is a great way to add detail to any outfit. Embroidered tunics are a must-have when it comes to Islamic clothing. Perfect for work or a night out, the Nashida Long Embroidered Tunic features contrasting embroidered accents along the neckline and sleeves. Traditional Palestinian embroidery, as seen on the Reem Palestinian Hand Embroidered Long Maxi Dress, is another way to incorporate this look into your closet. However, traditional Palestinian embroidery isn’t just a fashion statement; this centuries-old art is a beautiful reflection of one’s heritage.

Accessories: Icing on the cake
Accessories help tie an outfit together. Compliment your Islamic clothing and Muslim dress with artisan jewelry, from necklaces to earrings to bracelets. Accessories are a great way to express one’s style, as well as one’s faith. Hand-made Allah necklaces add style and class to any outfit!

These are only a few of the many trends for modest Islamic clothing and Muslim dress. Check out Artizara for the full line of Islamic and Muslim clothing!
