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!
