Fashion voyeur

For most of my life, I got my ideas of outfits to wear based on people I saw around me. This was easiest on a college campus when you saw many different styles around you. It was a little harder while working because you usually see the same people around you, but I could still pick up on a few styles here and there from my co-workers.
For the  past few years, I’ve been working from home, which makes it very difficult to pick up on style ideas. Sure, I go out and see people while shopping or hanging out with friends, but that’s not as often as was back in college.
So, now I have to make more of an effort to find different ways to wear clothes.
Magazines are great, as are Pinterest and Polyvore. But, as any hijabi knows, you have to alter most looks to become more modest.

This one is easy to recreate. Just put on a long-sleeved denim jacket instead of a sleeveless one.

Here’s a great tutorial on color blocking, which is all the rage these days. Just swap out items you already have in these colors and you have an easy outfit.

I absolutely love this outfit, and if you put on a pair of skinny black pants under the dress, it would be great for a fancy event.

And this is great for a casual look. You just need a longer striped shirt to make it more hijab-friendly.

Where do you guys go for style inspiration?

  1. Very interesting post! I guess I just look around everywhere for inspiration but your color blocking image is very helpful :)
