Grey Gardens Headscarf Chic


Bon Magazine is a Swedish publication which created a photo shoot based on the 1975 film Grey Gardens. You can see the rest of the spread here (note the hooded top in the last one - it instantly reminded me of Hanan Turk). Although they might not be hijab-appropriate, the beautiful scarves hark back to an era where covering one's hair was not considered 'oppressive' or 'foreign', but a mark of lady-like grace and elegance:

Sallams Sis,

Oh snap, you've done it! Found the cutest hijabi/hat look. I too just posted a hat/hijabi look on my random opinions blog. *sigh* uber cute look... Women have been wearing hats for centuries to cover modestly, to pair hem with scarves is just adorable.

Peace~Sallam,
