Outfit with Purpose #12: Hijab hitchhiker.



A second attempt at Islamic wear, this time with a younger, more casual look. I'm not very happy with it -- too matchy, and I don't really like the shirt. But I love these stretch lace headbands that I've seen Muslim women wearing under the hijab -- they look so much better than the drab beige ones that look as if cut off from a stocking! You could also use those crocheted hippy headwraps, but from personal experience they stretch something shocking. I've even seen stretch bands for wearing at ... the waist under a shirt, I guess for modesty when wearing low-rise jeans and a top that doesn't quite meet it. Anyway, they're good for added colour and texture.
