Islam has always been hailed as a religion that inculcates discipline and dedication to its followers. These values have greatly influenced their clothing style. Islam has set strict standards for its followers: the first and most important requirement is that Muslims must cover their entire body when they are in public. The garments should not be revealing as it means disrespecting the great Allah.
In earlier days, women would mostly opt for the Shayla, which was a long and flowing garment that covered the body and had a veil with slits for the eyes. This garment was slightly conservative as far as fashion was concerned. In fact it would be better to say that fashion and Muslim apparel did not mix at all. But today, Muslim Apparel has gone through various modifications and additions and we see Muslim women confidently wearing Islamic attire in public.
Burquas have paved the way for jilbabs, which can be described as a cousin of the burqua. It resembles the burqua as it is also a long, loose garment that covers the body except the face. Nowadays, we get to see jilbabs in many patterns and designs. Colors such as blue, lilac, green, lavender, and brown are extremely popular among women. They also come in various mandarin and Peter Pan shaped collars that give them a stylish look.
The hijab is also another worthy addition to the Muslim apparel. It is a type of head scarf that is used to cover the head and face. You can drape the hijab in many ways. One style is to fold a square-shaped Shaylain a triangle and cover a part of the face while letting the rest hand loosely over the back and neck. Tube shaped hijabs also look great. Laced, beaded, and colorful hijabs look trendy and chic, which is why college students are sporting them aplenty. If you are required to wear a veil, i.e the niqab, to cover your face, then you need not be disappointed as u can still be fashionable. Elegant and attractive niqabs in different sizes and shapes are available. Choose one according to the shape of your face....and voila! You will look awesome.
