Pants & Boots: Forever 21// Jacket & Scarf: Zara // Shirt: Joyce Leslie
One of my biggest challenges is mixing prints! Hijab makes it a little more difficult because of the extra item of clothing and just looks like there is so much is going on. BUT there is a way to make it work! For now, I have mastered mixing florals or small prints with stripes. The key is that size of the two prints should be different. For example, with these wide stripes on my pants, I paired it with a scarf that has small clustered flowers. The colors also matter. For it to look together, I definitely try to have one common color. In this case, it is black. I also try to add that color somewhere else in my outfit so it ties it in all together. For hijabs, always stay with the basic or neutral colors when mixing prints. Black, navy blue, beige, and taupe are good examples. Other colors can make the outfit look like there's way too much going on. Keep it simple!

Here are some of my favorite looks that play with different prints and colors:

Love this for a casual look! I would probably put on a navy blue hijab. 

This is probably my favorite! Although risky, it is really well put together and of course a black hijab. 
Real easy look to put together! Just throw on a black hijab

I'm going to try to be doing more of these short bit posts along with my lengthy ones, that way I can stay more active. Let me know if you have any ideas or suggestions for blog posts! I would love to hear them :)

with love,

Simply Covered Sweatshirt- Back one up!

salaam everyone!

I hope everyone is having a great winter. Alhamdulilah it is snowing here in Jersey, which means a snow day! Yay! Anyways, I wanted to share with you my latest collaboration with Before the Label is the first fashion based crowdfunding website that lets consumers decide what is 'in' for fashion" It is simple: if you like the product you back it up, and if it meets its production goal it gets made and shipped to you! If it does not reach its goal, it does not get made and you are not charged. I was really excited when they approached me as it is their first modest fashion campaign. I decided to use my simply covered sweatshirt that everyone loved so much as a first product. It comes in gray and maroon. I would opt for a larger size than your own so it gives it that slouchy feel. Here it is and I would love if you all could help back one up to reach a goal of 20!

Back one up here:
