Cool Cover-ups

Summer Solutions

For all UK readers, I hope you've been enjoying the beautiful sunshine! As always though, the summer heat brings with it the usual challenges for hijabis. It's difficult to find tops that don't need layering, but instead of stuffy cardigans, here are a few high street finds to cover up over maxi dresses, skirts or sleeveless tunics. Try jersey cardigans or shrugs, or for a casual look, a lightweight denim shirt worn open is a more comfortable alternative to a denim jacket. Don't forget to share with us any other great finds you've come across!

1971 Reiss Freya draped jersey jacket £79, ASOS; Linen mix waterfall jacket £25, New Look; Karla top £22, Long Tall Sally; Blue denim shirt £28, Dorothy Perkins.

what I find that really works are shirtdresses made of 100% real cotton. they are the most comfortable and keep me cool in the california sun.

Anthropologie also has some great, light weight, mid thigh length cardis for summer in a variety of colors. I've also found that JCrew has a wonderful selection of tunics and shirt dresses for spring and summer.

I'm not a muslimah but I enjoy reading Hijabi fashion blogs because I like the modest, feminine, elegant fashion suggestions that don't resort to over-revealing clothes to attract attention. Thanks for the inspiration and keep up the good work! You gals look so beautiful!!
