Home / Guest Posts / Tips On How To Be A Fashionable And Modest Girl

As Muslimahs, we have a wide, yet limited, options for stylish outfits. We have to ensure to keep them fashionable and modest at the same time.

I know many people, including myself at one point, who had a hard time finding the correct balance between modest clothing and still wanting to dress to the trends.

Over the years, I’ve picked up on things that I think can benefit any young Muslim girl get dressed for school, work, or fun! Follow along for a few tips:

Know your body

The 3 key aspects here:

  • Avoid Tight Clothes
  • Avoid see through clothes
  • Avoid low necklines

Avoiding tight clothes will help in not showing the outline and exact shape of your body. You want to wear something modest enough so that everything that needs to be covered, is covered.

In addition, the material of the clothing shouldn’t be thin or see through. It will draw attention to parts of your body, which again, should be left unseen.

Try to avoid low necklines. It will be hard to cover your chest if you do so.

  • Best options that work with these 3 aspects are: maxi dresses/skirts, palazzo pants, long kimonos/cardigans; are perfect for Muslimahs to wear. They are all stylish and modest options!

What’s the occasion?

If you’re going to school, work, the grocery store, or a special event, choose the clothing that suites that occasion.

  • Casual versus fancy clothing

Casual clothes are appropriate if you’re going somewhere low key. Make sure you dress to impress, but keep it simple and laid back so you don’t have to worry about how you’re dressed and can focus on your casual activity.
*My favorite outfit for casual occasions are just plain tees with jeans or yoga pants!

On the other hand, if you’re going to a formal occasion (wedding, birthday, or eid) you would want to fancy things up a bit. So, you can wear a pretty dress, or a skirt and top, with matching heels.

  • Accessories?

Well, every girl likes to add a special touch to her outfit by wearing some accessories of her preference. I love accessorizing, and the best part is, you really can’t be too immodest in doing so! So add on your necklaces, bracelets, watches and rings to finish off your looks!

Who are YOU!

Your personality speaks in the way you dress. The clothing you wear also reflects your self confidence in this world. Being a working girl, I know this firsthand. You want to make sure you dress according to your personality.

  • Best options: Comfortable clothing, add classic items like blazers, try to add colors to your outfit as well! They speak volumes to others—especially non-Muslims—who you may interact with!

Sweet & Simple. Elegant & Modest.

My fashion mantra is these 4 words. I think that is how I would summarize my sense of style and closet, if someone were to ask me.

You want to make sure your clothing is modest, but you want to dress according to the occasion and who you are.

I love wearing basics and plain colors, but always adding on layers or a colored pant, or something to make the outfit more fun.

Try to focus on the color scheme of your outfits as well, as that also plays a huge role in your style.

Don’t be afraid to try various styles, combinations, and outfits! You’ll find your style and make it your own.

Hope these tips helped you all! Keep on stylin away!

Sprinkle Of Surprise

Dreamer. Believer. Achiever. Above all, Alhamdulillah always. I am a 20 something year old girl living in the USA, I have recently graduated from my undergraduate and I work full time. Even more recently, I began writing a blog, titled ‘Sprinkle of Surprise’ where I document moments of my life I want to share with the internet. I am a makeup enthusiast and I enjoy reading fiction novels in my free time. I can’t wait to travel to many countries in the world one day, inshAllah, and experience various foods and cultures and people. These days, I am focusing heavily on myself and my body and soul. I have adapted a healthy lifestyle and am attempting to consume healthier foods and exercise daily. I already feel better about myself with my new adapted ways and I pray inshAllah I can achieve my health goals. Lastly, I am a firm believer that Allah is the greatest and will always guide his believers to success. Upon doing some soul searching and realizing the importance of prayer and faith, I have been able to look at life in a more positive way. Of course, there are bumps along the way, but with prayer and faith, Allah will always guide the way.

    My idea of being modest is going for dresses like abayas, long tunics, long skirts etc. And obviously, being a Muslim women, these would be my first choices.
