To get this look you’ll need an underscarf/cap and a lightweight sheila, preferably silk chiffon because it’s easy to play with.
According to Fabrics.net lightweight chiffon is “A sheer, flat-crepe textured silk with a dull, soft finish. Often seen in overlays for evening gowns. Excellent for shawls or scarves where a floaty look is desired.”
Match your hijab fashion by wearing the same color underscarf and sheila. Or wear different colors for your underscarf and sheila, but make sure one of them goes with something you’re wearing.
The point of this style is to drape it loosely so it looks soft and elegant. Don’t get too caught up in trying to make it sit perfectly.
Sheila’s with sequined borders add a nice dramatic flair to the look and can dress up any outfit in an instant.
