Modest Modification - The Little Black Dress
Putting on the hijab is a personal choice and it takes a lot actually to make that change. You've got to be mentality and spiritually prepared to change your entire wardrobe. You look at your cupboard and start to say goodbye to those short dresses you once owned. But do you really have to? As we mentioned in last week's blog, modest fashion encompasses a broader range than just Islamic fashion. Modest fashion is every day wear made modest (if that even makes sense lol!). Click here to read last week's blog for a quick recap.
There are so many gorgeous hijabis on social media who show you that no, you don't really have to say goodbye to your short dresses. You can still shop at your favorite Zara or H&M, you just gotta have a little bit more creativity to modest-ify it. Ok, that's a word we made up but you get the point.
Layer a long skirt under a short LBD and add that pop of color in a bold accessory.

Layer a straight white pants under a short LBD to make it a perfect look for the office.
Hijabi or not, who said modest fashion was unattractive? Oh little black dress...How do I love thee? Let me count the ways...
