Hijabi Summer Style Guide
Posted on July 01 2017
Summer heat can be tough to bear, especially while dressing modestly! But don't worry, we've got some tips and style suggestions to make this summer a breeze for you . . .
#1: Go Natural
The best fabrics to wear in the summer are natural ones-- they will be the most breathable. Our favorites are cotton and rayon (viscose).
#2: Let Loose
Most hijabis like to wear loose-fitting clothing anyway, but in summer this is especially important. Tight-fitting or clingy clothing can feel suffocating in the summer heat. Go for tunics and dresses that are loose and flowing, that won't stick to your skin.
#3: Keep it Simple
On the hottest days, you will definitely want to skip the layers, and instead keep it simple with as few articles of clothing as possible. Try a long sleeved tunic, and make sure it's not clingy or transparent so you don't have to wear an undershirt.
#4: Light as a Feather
To keep you cool, choose clothing and hijabs that are light-weight. Even polyester fabrics can feel light and breezy if they are the right weight.
#5: Ditch the Dark Colors
It's a scientific fact: darker colors absorb more light, therefore getting hotter. So if you want to keep your coolest, wear light-colored clothing which will reflect light instead of absorbing it. So there's a reason white is the quintessential summer color!
