Work It Girl!

The working hijabi has it tough, especially in the corporate world. You can’t really bust out in an outfit that is too trendy like what you see on many young college and high school girls. The outfits are cute, but not practical for a 9-5.

What you wear to work doesn’t have to be expensive. You can find great pieces at a variety of places and then put them all together. Or, if you’re lucky and have a store like Target, the combinations are limitless.

Here is what we found.


Clockwise (from top left) : Mossimo short sleeve jacket (wear a long sleeve black tee underneath or a long sleeve tee that coordinates with a color from the pattern), Rogan cotton trousers, Rogan gauze blazer wear a shirt underneath that goes with one of the colors in the print, Mossimo square peep toe, Xhileration wedge sandal.

For your headscarf, pick a color that matches something from your outfit. Play it safe by a wearing a plain black or white hijab. Don’t do any patterns or wild colors or you will clash.

We’ll be featuring more work oriented outfits as we find great deals.

Bonus Tip:Want to spice up an old suit set? Try pairing it up with a variety of colorful blouses, satin tank tops, or even a really nice tshirt with some jewelry. If you plan to take your suit jacket off, don’t forget to wear a long sleeve shirt underneath. Otherwise experiment with all sorts of tops even sleeveless.
