There seem to be a lot of misconceptions about women dressing modestly out there. I’ve noticed this especially after reading a New York Times article that implied modesty was a trend among young women stemming from the moment’s feminist flavor. It’s true that women and feminine-presenting people are constantly under scrutiny for the way that they dress. Regardless of if we’re showing “too much” skin, choosing not to show any skin at all, or dressing in more masculine fashions, we can’t ever seem to dress in a way that escapes judgement and assumptions from strangers and men.
My dressing preferences fluctuate based on my mood, my gender feelings, the weather, and where I am in my laundry cycle. But until recently, I’ve always favored clothing and cuts that may be considered “modest.” Boat neck tees, turtleneck crop tops, sweaters and Peter Pan-collared button ups made up the majority of my wardrobe for a time. I dressed this way mostly based on coincidence, as my favorite trends at the time happened to be lacking a plunging neckline. That and, until recently, I’ve never felt
Back in the old days, a handful of rich and famous women were celebrated for their style on the International Best Dressed List. These days Tumblr and instagram allow style-addicts worldwide to strut their stuff and to showcase their favorite style icons. One of our favorite Instagrams of late has been @hijabfashion, which celebrates the sartorial splendor of women in ‘modest fashion’ including hijab, a headscarf worn by Muslim women. The ladies behind the Instagram account, London-based Safiyah El-Houdaigui (@safsaf.el) and U.S. and Dubai-based Saufeeya Goodson (@Feeeeya), serve up a parade of high-style looks that have only two things in common: they’re worn with hijab and they’re fabulous.
For starters can you explain exactly what Hijab is?
Hijabs are worn by women in the Muslim community. Hijab is often misunderstood to be solely restricted onto Muslim women when in reality, there are multiple religions that call for women to cover, whether it be their bodies or hair. Modest dress and behavior is a divinely prescribed responsibility for Muslims of both genders. What is often overlooked is that Muslim men also have a responsibility to dress modestly
Maybe you’ve already noticed the change: Young women in one-piece swimsuits at the beach, loose tunics replacing tank tops in the summertime, chunky knits instead of tight sweaters in the winter.
It’s all part of a growing modesty movement in the fashion world, where sexy styles take a backseat to classier, more conservative looks. And it’s perfect timing for a rising group of religious style bloggers and designers like 30-year-old Melanie Elturk, the CEO of Haute Hijab.
Visit her brand’s website and you’ll find professional photos of models in bright, patterned headscarves, YouTube tutorials and fashion tips. It looks like any other style website—except with a religious twist.
“We’re not trying to hide the fact that this brand is for Muslim women,” Elturk told TODAY.com, adding that her customers also include conservative Christian and Orthodox Jewish women seeking out a stylish way to cover up their bodies.
Elturk isn’t the only Muslim woman who realized there was a space for modest style in the market. Blogs like Hijab Trendz, Haute Muslimah, The Muslim Girl and more all showcase styles that are chic but align with Islamic requirements. And

My husband and I started walking daily not that long ago. We both knew that we needed to lose a bit of weight, and that seemed the best way to do it without having to compromise the limited time we get to spend together because of conflicting work schedules. The first few weeks were pleasant. As the weather got nicer though, it was harder to walk in the sun because I didn’t have a pair of sunglasses.
