Style Inspiration: H&M

Layering Love

These are a couple of photos I took on my phone at the H&M store in Oxford Circus. What caught my eye was of course the creative use of a hijabi essential - lots of layering! Check out the cardigans layered over shirtdresses, long knits over tunics and cropped jackets with dresses; and they've even thrown in headwear into the mix! I love they way the mannequins have been accessorized with long necklaces and scarves too:

Ah yes, veddy nice masha'Allah! Now all they need to do is get a bit more leg coverage, and we're home free!

I love lots of layers, too. We will look chic and fashionable by layering. But here, in my tropical country, we always have hot weather, so could you show us: how we could be modest and fashionable with just one or two layers. I found it's more difficult to look stylish without many layers. Or maybe, which textile material we should choose, so we could add lots of layers without feeling hot?

Hi, I dont wear a hijaab but I think about wearing it alot and Inshallah one day I hope I make the change. I wear leggings quite alot with knee length dresses and pumps, I was wondering if Hijaabi's think it's acceptable to wear leggings with a knee length/ or longer cardi like the mannequin does in the H&M shop.

please can i get other girls opinions on this please

thanks x

Fashioning Faith- What about wearing a cotton or lightweight version of the salwar kameez (loose pants and long tunic with scarf)? I've worn that in my own (very warm) state and they beat the heat gracefully.
