Building a Modest Fashion Wardrobe

Masha Allah, with so many people accepting Islam as their deen and wanting to adopt the Islamic way of clothing and eating, I would like to suggest some modest dressing ideas. This post is on behalf of a reader who has recently accepted Islam and wants to know how to use the sale season to build a modest wardrobe 🙂

Generally speaking, modest dress is anything that covers you and doesn’t expose your awrah. It should be loose and comfortable and shouldn’t reveal the skin. If you want to wear your own clothes (anything you like), you can get an abaya and wear it over your clothes. There is a misconception in society that Muslim women wear boring clothes. The reality is that Muslim women can wear any dress they like but under their abayas. So, talking about an Islamic dress wardrobe – an Islamic wardrobe generally consists of jilbabs, hijabs, tunics, hoodies, shrugs, skirts, salwar kameez, long skirts, etc.

Here is a glimpse of some modest dress styles for your Modest Fashion Wardrobe

You can pair it up with belt and wear with your plain maxi dress to get simple and modest look. Or it can be worn causally just to cover up.


If you want to try something different then maxi dress with blazer is a perfect choice for you. It looks very stylish when you wear it with plain or patterned maxi dress. For example you can try pleated or fancy maxi dress with formal blazer and also add some unique pieces of accessories that make you look standout in a modest way.
