Young Muslimah

Ali has requested outfit ideas for her younger sister who has just started to wear hijab. Firstly I say congratulations, and mashallah!

I also have a younger sister who has recently started wearing hijab full-time. I think that the easiest and most fun outfits for young girls are tunics over jeans, with a long sleeved top underneath if needed. Try to be positive when out shopping. For example, if she finds something you don't think is suitable, try to find a good alternative. Focus on what she can wear, rather than what she can't. In terms of hijabs, I think that an al-amira is the easiest for younger girls to wear, especially if she is quite active. Bright colours and fun prints are a must for young hijabis:



Pink al-amira £2.99, Simply Islam; print dress £8.80, Debenhams; canvas shoes £10, Barratts; flare jeans £11, BHS; blue al-amira £4.49, Muslim Base; aqua smocked dress £12-£16, Debenhams; canvas trainer £9, BHS.

Anon: LOL, I wear tunics over jeans too most days, but more 'grown up' versions! Also, most little girls don't like wearing maxi skirts and the like, but older girls do!

ha ha.. oh yh, on the topic of skirts do you know where I could find a variety of casual skirts anywhere??
These days, you find mid length skirts and smart ones. No casually long ones :(

Anon,

I was planning a post just about that actually! I've found quite a few! Meanwhile, check this link, for all the posts I've labelled 'long skirts', some of them may still be available:

Also, if you are ever looking for something on my blog, you can always use the search box in the top left hand corner.
