There is something so peaceful & beautiful about this caftan from Eshakti. The ginko leaf embroidery gives it rich detail. I think it’s perfect for a cool summer evening spent relaxing on the patio or taking an evening stroll.

For those of us who still maintain coverage during the increasingly hot months, a dilemma arises. How does one look cool as a cucumber even while maintaining you modest look?
Fabric, fit and color really matter here. You want to look for lighter materials (cotton, linen, seersucker, light denim) and avoid clingy less breathable fabrics like jersey.
For the hijab-wearer, I highly recommend avoiding polyesther fabric during the hot months. Consider a looser wrap style, that maintains modesty, but also allows for some space between the scalp, neck and the scarf. Shayla scarves are great for this!
Mariam Sobh of Hijabtrendz has some awesome tips here.A more popular summer look among modest-dressing Muslim women is the cardi paired with maxi dress. In this case, fit and material still matter. You still want to look for a cardi and maxi dress that are made from light fabric.
If you want to sidestep layering all together, consider looking for long-sleeve maxis and/or long-line tops & tunics.
I think a kurti and wide-leg trousers are a great summer option.
White makes me feel and (look cool). In this outfit, I’m pairing a white kurti with black embroidery, linen blend trouser pants, a bit of color in a light-summer teal scarf, and Italian leather wedges.

Here is a light, maxi-dress to help you welcome spring:
Rather than going dark-I would complete the look with a bold cardi, light accessories and wonderfully textured flats.

This Fall I’m inspired by powerful femininity- Soft textures within classic, bold structures. I’m crazy for florals, lace, deconstructed ruffles (like the ones in a Vela scarf) and the hint of toughness suggested by a military shirt dress.

I love the gold and pink tones in this kimono tunic by Hijabi Couture
It pairs nicely with a black maxi skirt

Moving from NYC to a small town taught me a few things. I had to cook at home more.
AND I had to find fashion inspiration wherever I can. I know that some style lovin’ girls have issues with Fashion Bug but I say don’t allow past prejudices to get in the way of your style.
One thing that I love about FB besides the prices is that they have a variety of sizes within one single store. I like the idea of going with a smaller girlfriend & being able to shop together.
Here are some cute (under $30) dresses that I have my eye on:
A Floral Skirt Dress
A Tiered Chiffon Dress
A Floral Cummurbund Dress
So, what do you think about these FB looks? Would you buy them?
