Cairo Style

The girl in the video from WiB 3 was matching to the T in her red and white outfit. Get the Cairo look, and you won't look too out of place down at the City Stars Mall:

Red hijab £1.50; white hijab £1.50, both 2hijab; white long sleeve top £5.60; wide leg jeans £30, both Dorothy Perkins; polka dot dress £28, Debenhams; red patent ballerina flats £18; shoulder bag £25, both Barratts.

I like it!

Sarah: Instead of using just one you need two, and start wrapping simulataneously. You need to place one beneath the other so that they are just slightly overlapping and it really helps if you pin it at the chin when you start

I think you would need white pants to actually really match the outfit.

Personally I can't stand to mitch match everything.

I'd never wear white pants either :)

Loving your blog!!

Thanks everyone, glad you liked it!

myhijab: white trousers too?? hehe that'd be overkill. Though I do love my white trousers in the summer :)

Sarah, I think what she's done here is worn a red bandana first. Then she's taken the white hijab, placed it on her head one side long than the other, than taken both ends behind the neck and pinned them. The she repeats this with the red hijab. Then the long end of the white one is taken over the shoulder, around the neck and back up over the head. Repeat with the red hijab, and make sure to secure with pins. Hope that made sense!
