Muslimah Style: Muftiah

Reader's Contribution

Muslimah Style: Muftiah

I am a 24 year old student living in Dublin, Ireland.

My Style

I love to look good and unique, yet very Islamic! I try to show people that you can be well covered while wearing your cultural attire with hijab. I love to match my hijabs to the colour of the clothing I am wearing. My favourites are olive, blue, brown and gold.

My favourite items of clothing will have to be abayas and dresses. I don't know exactly why, but I feel and look good in them! In the top right photo, I am wearing a traditional Nigerian fabric called "Adire". It was custom made for me by a dress maker in Nigeria. I bought the hijab to match the outfit at Upton Park Market.

I tend not to stick to one style - it all depends on my mood, the event I am attending and Nigerian culture. I'd say my style is very simple, elegant, classy and chic.

Top Tip

Always have a nice hair do underneath your hijab, it always shows on the face!

you look absolutely fabulous mashaalah. im so inspired by your look. your well covered but extremely cool. i love the colours i am so going to try that! im 24 too but sometimes i feel so old because of the way i dress, maybe i just wear too many dark clothes im going to try and change it! but btw, i think the best is the pic of you in the black and brown, i love that sash/belt across the middle it looks really good mashaalah. id love to know where you got that from.
