Muslimah Style: Fadzie

Reader's Contribution

Muslimah Style: Fadzie
My name is Fadzwani, but my friends call me Fadzie. I've been studying and working in Dublin, Ireland for almost 6 years. Now, I'll be returning home to Malaysia for good this coming August.

My Style

I am truly ordinary person who always into fashion since I was little. However, as I grew up, I realised that being a good Muslimah is always priority to being a true fashionista. So, whenever I get dressed or even before I buy my clothes, I always keep in mind that I am a Muslim and want to keep my modesty. So, I made up my own two rules that at the very least my clothing has to be:

1. Loose
2. Long enough to cover my bum

However, I do admit sometimes those two rules aren't met in what I wear. If that happens, I definitely won't be in my best mood, I could never walk at ease.

I wouldn't say I have a particular style; I could wear something from very casual to glamorous diva. However, I always prefer to wear something simple and sweet. My favourite items of clothing have to be my cardigans. I need plenty of them to cover up my body-fitting tunics and shirts.

When it comes to accessories, I love long necklace or chains. I used to have bundles of beaded long necklaces, but now I am more into chains. I don't wear bangles a lot because I think my current Fossil watch is funky enough! My preferred colours have to be pastel or earth-based tones like black, brown, white and green.

Top Tips

Be confident what you are wearing. After all, is not about being a fashionista. What matters the most is your obedience to Allah's rules.

Salaams dear sisters,
Sis fadzie said such a beautiful thing
I realised that being a good Muslimah is always priority to being a true fashionista. So, whenever I get dressed or even before I buy my clothes, but many times we forget who decides modesty?Is it our limited mind or is it Allah(swt)? sometimes our nafs makes us think Oh! this is fine and its modest but infact it is not.May Allah guide us all to follow his ahkams.
