Hijab, A Crown For Muslim Women All Around The World

Recently, Muslim wear is in huge demand in the fashion industry all around the world. Hijab (headscarf) is becoming an important part of my life and for me, it is a crown for me as a Muslim woman. Muslim wear promotes modesty in the fashion, beginning from the headscarves all the way to whole outfits such as top, skirts and pants. Muslim wear is gradually gaining more attention from international fashion brands such as Dolce & Gabbana, when they revealed their special abaya collection in late 2019.

From my previous employment, where I managed weekly marketing campaigns for Malaysian online sellers, my previous clients would share that the hijab ranked as the best selling item in the Muslim wear category.

Tips To Choose A Right Hijab

1. Colour

A lot of customers will purchase a hijab with a colour that complements their skin tone. As a customer too, I love to choose earth colour like brown and beige because I love earth tone. Bright colours such as pink, orange, and yellow can brighten up your mood at work or when meeting with friends. Yet, the most popular colour is black because it is a universal colour in fashion.

Choosing the right hijab is important as you need to feel comfortable when wearing your hijab daily. Start with the colour and then the material to complement your Muslim wear fashion style.

2. Material

The most popular material for the hijab is chiffon. It is known for its lightweight and has a beautiful drape. Another suitable material for the headscarf is satin. Moreover, satin is popular due to the luxury material and its quality. There are two different types of satin i.e. silk satin and matte satin.

3. Measurement

Measurement is one of the most important elements in choosing a suitable hijab. Most of my friends prefer a long hijab because it conveys the modesty of Muslim wear. Also, the long hijab lends more creativity in trying new styles as seen in the YouTube tutorial below:
