And you can still use your summer wear now, if you coordinate carefully, by adding darker colors, for example. Yes, fall usually means browns, reds, and grays, but as HijabStyle.blogspot.com reminds us, you can still use your summer maxi dresses by adding a chunky knitted cardigan on top. Hijabtrendz.com recently posted several options for fall sweaters that are modest in shape and in a range of prices.
HijabStyle also suggested using short jackets or blazers over dresses and declared, "Wide leg trousers in textured fabrics look oh so chic teamed with long cardigans. Add a personal touch with jewelry and patterned hijabs. This season, look out for longer length jackets too."
Fall also usually means adding some plaid into your wardrobe. WeLoveHijab.com suggests incorporating this trend using a scarf like this one as a hijab, which "would look nice with a simple black abaya, or with a long black skirt and classic white button up shirt. You could even wear that one with jeans."
WeLoveHijab also discussed this year's fall trends of pairing neutrals with bright colors, like teal, and wearing clothing with ruffles. The blog suggests Muslim women incorporate ruffles into accessories (like this bag) instead of clothing, since much of what is in stores has ruffles at the neckline.
As long as you have your wardrobe essentials, you can see that it won't take much at all to update your closet for Fall 2009 and look modestly stylish!
