Real world hijab style with silver and gold

As a mom and a professional it’s hard to figure out what to wear without looking like you are wearing mom jeans or as though you are dressing up for prom.

There are so many over the top hijab tutorials and fashion magazines out there, but seriously who actually goes out like that?

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted my own hijab style, so here is what I wore to my improv class yesterday.

The pairing of a silver hijab works here because the shirt has both lines of silver and gold running through it.

I love the necklace from Forever21 because it adds a touch of sparkle.

The shirt is from New York and Company, the pants are from The Limited.

I really am in need of upgrading my wardrobe, but it has been a challenge lately due to size fluctuations (real world hijab style issues!)

Ideally I’d pair the shirt with a long flowing skirt or pants in another color. But black will have to do.

    Hi Mariam,

    I wear (used to wear) my hijab in the same style. I have given up hijab now (after 11 years) but hope to get back to it at some point. I really love your sense of style and that you share it with other readers. I am always wondering how to look professional and yet maintain a hijab/modest look and also look chic and stylish. Do you always wear full sleeved shirts?

    Thank you all for your comments, you are too kind! 🙂
    Natalie the way I style my hijab is a basic wrap. I’ll do a tutorial, my youtube followers keep requesting it too. I’m flattered that you all like it 🙂

    I really like your style, it is very similar to mine. I like simple and neat, and classy. I am also having issues with size fluctuations b/c I am nursing my 7 month old and still need to lose about 10 pregnancy pounds so some of my favorite outfits can’t fit me right now :(.

    It is simple but yet stylish with the add on of the necklace. I like the style very much because it is me also very simple. The only I dress up is if it was a special occasion which is very rare. Nice 🙂

    Pretty! I love looking at sites that sell muslim clothing, but it all seems… too much. I try to figure out how to dress, but still be me, and I always wonder what another muslim would think. I think your outfit is great 🙂 Thank you 🙂
