3 Key 2017 Style Trends and How to Wear in Modest Fashion

2017 is the year that Islamic fashion and hijab wearing models really made waves in the mainstream fashion world.

From Kanye West casting hijab-wearing Somali-American model Halima Aden to make her runway debut at New York Fashion Week, to Cover Girl naming Muslim fashion guru and blogger Nura Afia their newest ambassador, to Indonesian fashion designer Anniesa Hasibuan proudly declaring “I’m here bringing the beautiful voice of the Muslim women, the peace and the universal values that fashion can offer”,  2017 has indeed started off to be a landmark year for Islamic fashion.

One thing all the fashionistas above demonstrated loud and clear: Modest fashion doesn’t mean boring. In fact Islamic clothing can be just the opposite. 2017 brings more choices than ever in modest Islamic fashion. Here are some key trends that we picked out that are super easy to adopt whether you’re hijab wearing Mulsimah or love modest dressing and modest clothing in general.

UTILITARIANISM

Boxy shapes, loose silhouettes and oversize cargo pockets these workwear inspired trends have been around for a while but 2017 saw designers from A.L.C. to Isabel Marant making it a point to give everyday pieces a military- and workwear-inspired vibe.
Utilitarian pieces, by definition simple, not too revealing, meant for everyday wear; are perfect as key pieces of a modest or Islamic clothing wardrobe. Here are a couple of our favorite utilitarian pieces from Artizara:

To make utilitarian chic dressing work, remember to balance oversized proportions with tailored pieces and feminine silhouettes and materials that you can tuck in or layer smoothly.
