Muslimah Style: Tiananda

Reader's Contribution

Muslimah Style: Tiananda
My name is Tiananda, I'm 22 years old and living in Indonesia. I've worn hijab for almost 6 years, and I'm happy I've decided to wear it!

My Style

My style is anything comfortable and affordable! I usually wear casual outfits, but when I'm in the stylish mood I'll mix and match my clothes. If some girls have a bad hair day, sometimes I have a bad hijab day! That's the moments when I think I look ugly in any outfit! In case it happens, I always go back to my favorite shirt, skirt and matching coloured scarf. Maybe I'll look plain, but it will save me from feeling unhappy the whole day.

Style inspiration for me comes when I see fashion blogs (real girls wearing real clothes) or walk into a department store. I easily fall in love with simple designs, smart details, plain colours, stripes, or flowery patterns. But remember, a cute outfit on other girls doesn't mean that it'll look good on us. Choose wisely, save more!

Top Tips

1. Go to a flea market or a discounted sale in department stores to save money.

2. Invest money in comfortable shoes, trousers or a skirt that you will wear frequently.

3. Mix and match clothes to get a new look without buying a new outfit.

4. After you dress up, look in the mirror. If you think your outfits are ok, then you'll feel confident throughout the day.

I love her style and attitude. I love the idea of having a go to piece if you're having a bad day where nothing looks good.
