When you think about hijab, it's easy to visualize a particular way of modest dressing—and that’s usually some form of headwear wrapped around your curls matched with a long flowy dress that reaches below the ankles.

Yes, there’s always something beautifully timeless about old fashioned looks, but a lot can be said about upping the ante when it comes to modernising. Like other types of fashion, hijab outfits have also evolved throughout the years! When it comes to Muslim clothing, you don't necessarily need to stick to one kind of outfit all the time—what’s important is that you embody the ideal.

That said, many Muslim women throughout the world are now taking great leaps and bounds to create a fashion niche where you can wear what you want and still look modest! To help you start your journey towards a hipper way of styling Islamic outfits, here are 6 incredible formal and casual hijab looks to try out today:

  1. Trending: Double Shirts

The timeless ol’ tee is the epitome of casual clothing. They just look so basic, simple, and relaxed, making them the perfect everyday fashion piece no matter what the weather. Still, they can sometimes be limiting because of their short sleeves—but there’s a solution for everything. One quick answer to that is to pair your trusty tee with a tight-fitting, long-sleeved piece underneath—that’s double the fun and double the creativity!

By donning this fabulous pair, you can wear most loose graphic shirts comfortably, and it will fit the ideals of hijab clothing to boot. The extra long-sleeved element underneath provides you with another layer of cover too, so chilly nights out can be no big deal. Be creative and try pairing different colours and patterns together to make unique Islamic outfits that you’ll absolutely love to wear every day—doing so can also help ease the burden on your wallet a little bit, because who says you can’t reuse the same piece but wear it in a different way?

If you need to show up at a fancy event and you’re a little bit pressed for time, it’s easiest to follow a more traditional route (but with a unique twist!). Abayas nowadays come in many shades and patterns, but if you’re aiming for that pristine, classic, elegant look, wear a white piece. Sweet, sleek, and subtle, the sophisticated and perfectly put-together look is ideal for hijab looks that make heads turn without being too attention-seeking.
