Budget Muslim attire

How to Shop for Chic Muslim Clothing on a Budget

It’s sad but true; money doesn’t grow on trees. But who doesn’t love shopping, right? The struggle between managing a budget and resisting the constant urge to shop is a challenge many women face. Here is our solution to the all-too-common dilemma: When shopping for stylish Muslim and Islamic clothing, be sure to spend wisely to make the most of your purchase.
Here are our top six tips for shopping for Muslim fashions while successfully adhering to a budget:
1. Go for versatile pieces. Neutral colors and basics can mix and match with many existing pieces in your closet. The Camilla Simple Long Tunic, for example, features a classic silhouette in basic black, and it can be dressed up or down for any occasion. For pieces like this, rely on accessories to brighten up the outfit.Budget Muslim attire
2. Go for quality, not quantity. Investing in well-made articles of clothing will save you money in the long run. High-quality Muslim and Islamic clothing may cost a little extra, but it will last years, so you aren’t replacing pieces each season.
3. Look for sales and special deals. Be patient and watch for sales online or in stores. Many times, online vendors offer discounts for signing up for a mailing list. That’s an instant saving! (Artizara, for example, rewards our valued customers with a 10% coupon when they sign up!)
4. Span the seasons. Layer, layer, layer! A great sweater (like the Karina Long Striped Sweater) can last through the frigid winter months, but it can also provide extra warmth in an unseasonably cold, air-conditioned office. Multi-purpose articles of clothing help get an extra bang for your buck.
5. Shop with purpose. Nothing beats a spontaneous shopping trip, but when a budget is a factor, it’s important to shop for what you need and only what you need. This requires discipline and planning. Think ahead for what types of Muslim and Islamic clothing you will need for the whole season and factor that into your shopping allotment.
6. Buy what you love! This is the most important rule! Avoid buying items that you’re on the fence about; chances are, you’ll wear the clothing once and it will get lost in the back of your closet. This trap is a major drain on your shopping budget. In tandem with rule No. 5, buy items that you only need and love. Not only will your wallet be happy, but you’ll feel confident wearing beautiful, modest Muslim styles that you love.
