Maxi Skirt Steal

20121025-165211.jpg

We all know that hijabis love maxi skirts as a go to wardrobe staple. But did you know that maxi skirts can transition well for fall weather?

Just make sure to pick a maxi skirt in a nice deep color and pick one up with pleats so it falls in line with the pleated skirt trend.

I pair mine with knee length riding boots and shorter tunic paired with a cool vest.

I love this particular maxi skirt find because it’s lined, long, and who can beat this price? It’s also perfect for petite hijabis who can’t always find long skirts that suit their small frames.

Let me know what you think of this hijabi fashion find. Stay tuned for more exciting fall beauty and fashion posts.

Fall Accessories

I was so excited about my new Ralph Lauren business card holder pictured above, I had to share it with you.

But then I realized that perhaps there was a theme with accessories that make me happy. Sure enough, I pull out my glasses from Tory Burch and I noticed that the cover is gold too!

So there you go. I love gold accessories. The beauty of accessories is that it is small enough to take risks with color. It is neutral enough to add a bit of sparkle to any outfit without coming off as being too tacky.

You don’t have to pick gold. Pick a color or even a print that suits your own style and personality. For example, one of my aunts loves animal prints. When she wears neutrals, she just pairs animal print pumps and a belt or scarf and she looks instantly pulled together.

Also, remember that accessories are not equal. Shoes are more memorable than say a business card holder so take the time to invest in a good quality accessory with rich detailing. It doesn’t have to be expensive. For example, Aldo and other brands have been making some very cute accessories.

Expect a fall accessories round up from me soon! It will be for all budgets so be on the look out.

Fall is a hijabi’s favorite time of year. This is because stores are brimming with hijab friendly items like long sleeved cardigans, long skirts, and even longer sweaters.

One of my favorite things to do in fall is to stock up on jewel toned pieces. It’s a great way to update your look without having to do an entire wardrobe overhaul. This season, I am loving all of the teal pieces I see. Wear one item in a jewel tone and keep the rest of the outfit neutral.

The outfit I compiled is pops of emerald green and teal tempered with black. Nude pumps finish the look by lightening the whole outfit.

What are your go to pieces for fall?
