Simply Smart

A well-tailored suit jacket can instantly smarten up a basic black abaya and hijab combo. Add a classic leather bag and mid-heeled shoes, and you're ready to make a good first impression at any interview or meeting. A small brooch brings a touch of femininity and makes the outfit more interesting, or try a simple necklace instead.

Hint: Wearing a light grey bonnet cap underneath the black hijab can stop you from looking too severe when in a formal setting.

Oh I really like this a lot! Very nice! Good for formal meetings at work.

Could also do a slightly longer jacket with this?
