- I adore Jumpsuits, my initial opinion of them though was "grown up onesies like my kids used to wear", until the design style lines and cuts became more sophisticated, elegant and loose fitting, it became a must have item in my wardrobe. I have worn a jumpsuit with a maxi cardigan or coat and it is a great combo (see pic1), ups your style factor and is a unique take on wearing a jumpsuit. Pairing it with a lace cardigan or coat gives the jumpsuit some attention without taking away the hijab appropriate element, also try crepe chiffon or for texture and colder days a knit cardi.
- The other pics are examples of the evolution in jumpsuit design, ranging from draped to tailored. Pairing it with a tailored jacket or blazer, ups the oomph factor and adds to the modesty of it, so why can't you wear one again?
- Alot of jumpsuits now come in modest designs with eg. peplums which you can look out for.
- If you are concerned about tummy issues try a jumpsuit that has an elasticated waist with a top that has a longer length so it sits over the elasticated waistband...tada! you just nixed that issue...
- Also try pairing it with a high-low hemlined shirt, you could also as an alternative knot it at the front, try a strapless dress, a gillet (longer length waistcoat), oversized coat...etc...have fun experimenting!

For this look you will need to drape to get it right;)
Look 2: Wide Leg, Pallazo and Harem Pants
- I don't believe I have ever done without wide leg pants, it's the easiest item to pull off and can be dressed up or down.
- Pair these cuts with loose fit tops tucked in or out, just be sure to wear heels if you are petite or opt for slightly more fitted tops for balanced proportions.
- Also try long cardigans over a shorter fitted top tucked in (like a T or button down shirt), or long fitted/ tailored tops and dresses to wear over.
- Here I paired my wide leg printed pair with a blazer and nude heels, to avoid the pj look;)
- Scarf tieing: Choose simple styles that keep with the cool minimalist attitude of this look. Other simple styles to try:

Style 5 & 6:
I have learnt many new hijab styles from simply experimenting. Practice makes perfect or in my case leads to new styles no ones done before that looks great too;) this be the end of issue 3...when I finally build up the courage I will do a video showing you how to create the new styles I know...Insha'Allah!
Enjoy playing around with these styles..practice practice practice.
I hope I have inspired you, and you go on to inspire others....May Allah(SWT) grant us the ability to be the best of Muslims inside and out!
