More Turkish Street Style

Following on from my first post on Turkish Street Style, I've found more pictures of everyday Muslimahs in Turkey. Bold prints and rich colours are ever-popular, even in colder months:



Love the shawl on the middle girl in this picture - a great alternative to heavy coats:


It's rare to see Turkish girls wearing shaylas, but it seems bright green ones are a popular option. And while it's nice to have a little height to your hijab, the beehive look in the first picture is just tooooo much!

oh yes, bee hive, big no no... I love turkish scarves, the only prob is they never seem to give enough coverage of the chest. I have lots of hair so when I have it in a bun it sort of pulls the hijab up even more and u can occassionally see skin when I move.. suppose I have to wear them with jackets or something

The lime green is fantastic! But the beehive? Er...

I wonder how they get the tops of their hijabs to go round and stiff like a bonnet? Is there some kind of foam thing they put inside?

I LOVE this!! I think you need to start a new category for styles like this called "Hijab Boho Chic"!

In all seriousness, though, I actually think that a hijab goes really well with that bohemian look, because it gives it a kind of folksy, gypsy-ish vibe. You can see what I'm trying to explain in the first photo. The way those girls pair the scarves with the patterned long blouses is seriously cool! I think it shows a great way to carry that bohemian look into the colder months.

nice scarf. but the conehead look is so ugly

Jana said...

Ammena, check out the second style I posted under 'Malaysian Hijab Styles'. Also, when you fold the scarf into a triangle, make the fold as minimal as possible, so you get a bigger area to work with. I'll post mroe Turkish styles with chest coverage inshallah!

CC, watch this video: http://hijabstyle.blogspot.com/2008/05/turkish-hijab-tutorial.html

Anchibride, my thoughts exactly, these girls have that Autumn trend sorted!

Anon, I haven't a clue lol I'll look into for you.

Habayeb, in your affiliate page, go to 'banners/links', click on graphic banners, then you see all the ones avaiable, and their HTML codes are next to each one under 'show banner code'.

Fateme, thanks for the link!

Ange, exactly!

Habayeb said...

erm..thats wat im asking....i *got* the banner code but *where* do i post in my blog :S

Jana said...

Ah I see, OK so you click on 'customise' at the top of the blog page. Then click on 'add a gadget' in the side bar. Scroll down until you reach 'HTML/JavaScript'. Click on this, then just paste in the code in the content box and click save!

Habayeb said...

done! jazakallah! *phew*

sayma said...
