Term Time Style

I did a post here back in June about one of my wardrobe staples, the white shirtdress. I love it because you can wear it in any season, and in so many ways. This autumn, I'll be layering it underneath cardigans. Grey is a useful colour to choose, because along with the white, you can easily combine it with a richer colour - I especially like purple, green and turquoise. Add a skinny belt underneath the cardigan, basic black pumps and slouch bag, and this will probably be one of my basic uni outfits. Change the hijab and jewellery, and there's a different look every time:

Blue pashmina £6.99, The Hijab Shop; Me Julie jeans £65, French Connection; black croc buckle belt £5, Dorothy Perkins; Aboston pumps £30, Faith; grey cardigan £30, Warehouse; black ring slouch bag £25; Dorothy Perkins; mixed beads necklace £12, Promod.

Salaam Jana, hope you're well... sorry to hear that you have been having some trouble with some readers... hope it blows over soon, inshaAllah. I am loving all your posts and have a little requests... could you please do a post on lace outfits; skirts, dresses or tops... i have been meaning to buy some especially boleros but haven't found the right one.

just want to say keep up the good work- jus luv all the different outfits! I was wondering if you could do something on how to wear waistcoats and what they would go with etc.

This white shirtdress is so popular and so well used. 3 of my American muslims from have bought it at H&M in the US!

I would add something in cerise dear Jana, like a big cerise bag. It's so IN now. or pink shoes! ;)

such a smart look! :D


I would just like to leave some gentle reminders for myself everyone..

Abû Hurayrah relates that Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) said: “Whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should speak a good word or remain silent. And whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should show hospitality to his neighbour. And whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day should show hospitality to his guest.” [ Sahîh al-Bukhârî and Sahîh Muslim ]

When we have nothing beneficial to say, silence is golden.

correction: it should say "for myself and everyone"

Jana said...

Fatima, will do soon inshallah!

Basbousa, oooh great minds do think alike :D

Aisha, I did three posts on waistcoats previously here, here and here. Hope that helps!

Kholod, really? I've not seen anyone else wearing it. It such a great piece though!

Princessanna, thanks!

Smiley, thanks for the reminder :) I hate to dress sloppy to uni. I know people who literally roll out of bed and come in in their pyjamas lol, but I could never do that!

I love shirt dresses too. They go with anything. I bought lots of pretty printed ones through the summer and just wore a matching plain scarf

I love the turquoise with the denim too

Great post, thanks Jana

Zaenab said...

like ur sense of style jana! i luvvvvvvvv winter season for some reason? i always wear layers of tops underneath to stay warm, and i guess its much easier to dress modestly during this season. im so excited bout wearing my new ugg boots. iv never owned a pair of knee high boot as i thought it wouldnt look right with a hijab, guess i was wrong!
