OOTD – Coins and Kicks FT. Luluwaah

Hola Canolis!

I FINALLY MADE IT FOR #HHSUNDAY. I know the past couple weeks I’ve been off my game, but ya girl is back on track.

I have SO many blogposts lined up, I’m kinda going crazy aha! It’s going to be some hectic times, but I’m excited! I also have exams coming up (eww, I know right), but let’s not worry about that too much eh 😅

I just wanted to share this quick ootd with you all! It’s a little typical, it’s a little different.

If you’ve noticed for the past couple of months, the colour grey has becoming a standard colour in my wardrobe. Grey is my new Black haha. I find that I am really attracted to grey now because it’s so easy to style! Grey matches with everything and can work for casual or formal occasions. It’s my go-to colour now.

HOW TO STYLE: Sweaters – FT. The Hijab Souq

Hey everyone!

I hope you are all doing well! Eid-e-Ghadeer Mubarak! Today marks the anniversary of the event of Ghadeer. On this day, after the completion of the Holy Prophet’s last Hajj, he declared to the people that his cousin and son-in-law, Imam Ali would be the successor after him. This is a monumental day in Islam and a day worth celebrating!

Unfortunately, I have night class today and instead of celebrating with family and friends at mosque, I’ll be partying it up in my Roots of Medical Terminology 3 hour lecture, ayy D:

Today I have a very special post! It just started getting cold here (and I mean like 8ΒΊ C, we go 0 to 100 real quick) so this is my first official Fall post! It’s an ideal time for this post so everyone’s good to go with their outfits for the season πŸ˜‰Β In addition, I’m collaborating with one of my favourites for this post – The Hijab Souq! I’m so excited to feature their hijabs in my outfits! All of these outfits actually turned out so well! This may just be one of my favourite posts πŸ˜€

The Hijab Souq is a USA based business and sells hijabs and accessories that are great for all aspects of your wardrobe! Literally, they have the biggest selection of solid coloured hijabs I HAVE EVER SEEN. It’s so perfect! They also have a variety of printed hijabs and special occasion ones as well. They even have these really cute calligraphy clutches and statement necklaces! This is right up my alley!
On their website, you can find plenty of style inspiration and outfit ideas on how to style their scarves! You can also see lots of pictures of happy customers styling the scarves in their own unique way πŸ™‚

They even offer Free Shipping to the US AND Canada for orders over $50! Yes, I did just say that it includes Canada! I know, monumental :’)

Check out The Hijab Souq on their website, Instagram, and Facebook! They always have sales going on so you definitely want to be updated with their social media accounts!

For this post, I decided to choose the 4 types of sweaters that I wear most and show how I like to wear them. These are: Thick/Chunky sweaters, Thin sweaters, Maxi Cardigans, Cropped sweaters (jumpers). I also feel these are the most practical for the cold weather and most popular right now.
I hope you enjoy this post!

Sweater 1: Thick Sweaters

Alright, let’s be real. Thick sweaters just make us all sad because it enforces the reality of cold weather LOL. Might as well make them look cuter so we can feel better about ourselves! But honestly, we all have to wear these types of sweaters one day or another. With these sweaters, you can really do anything. I love to play with colours when it comes to these types of sweaters because you already have a unique texture from the fabric itself, so you can either play with patterns or mix up the colours.

For this outfit, I wore a black and white sweater with stripes on the back. Hence, I chose not to incorporate any more prints into the outfit. It is long and flattering, and has two zippers on the sides that can be opened to create some slits.Β I paired it with the Royal Lace hijab in the Tan colour. This hijab has to be one of the SOFTEST hijabs I have ever seen/own/worn! The lace is on both edges of the hijab, and I even changed my hijab style to show it off! You know a hijab is pretty amazing if it makes me change my hijab style :’)

I decided to wear some standard fall colours with this outfit – olive green, tan, and cognac brown! This outfit turned out really well and it’s perfect for everyday use. I wore this for running errands and I can easily see how this outfit will become a go-to for school.

Sweater 2: Thin Sweaters

I LOVE this outfit! It’s so casual yet perfect. Thin sweaters are great for those in-between days where it’s chilly, but not super cold. They’re also great for layering because you can add more pieces and have the option of removing some if it gets warmer. Hence, I decided to style the Hijab Souq scarf around my neck, instead of as my hijab! I know, sneaky! But with thin sweaters, scarves around your neck look super cute and are a great to add some extra warmth without the bulk. I even have a post on HOW TO STYLE: Neck Scarves, so you can have plenty of ideas on how to wear them with your thin sweater :’)

I wore this plum purple sweater and some distressed jeans! I actually DIY-ed this pair, so I plan on doing a post on this soon inshallah! For some reason, when I envisioned this outfit, I just felt like it needed some hole-y jeans. I just thought it made the look. So I made some and I’m so glad I did πŸ™‚ Of course, I wore leggings underneath for modesty purposes hehe. I wore the Candy Fiesta hijab around my neck. I love the fun, unique print – it is versatile for year-round wear. The tassels on the edges made this hijab even more ideal for being around my neck! I just finished the outfit with a solid brown hijab that matched a shade from the hijab. Overall, I’m really pleased with this look!

Sweater 3: Maxi Cardigans

Is it okay to also ABSOLUTELY ADORE this outfit as well?!

This is by far one of the biggest trends recently in the (hijabi) fashion community. Maxi cardigans are perfect because they’re super long and look great over anything and everything. They’re very handy in that way and hence I wanted to share a different way to style them!
They’re definitely great for wearing something shorter underneath because you know you’re still modest and covered. But, I also really like wearing them with a longer top underneath! The maxi on maxi (more like midi on midi) look is really chic in my opinion! It’s almost a bit redundant and unnecessary – I mean, I’m wearing a super long cardigan for a reason! Take it for what it is, but the two long pieces really compliment each other and have a sophisticated look. This is a new way that I love wearing my maxi cardigans so I had to share it in this post πŸ™‚

I wore this gray speckled maxi cardigan with this Pink long sleeve Midi Dress from Daya Couture! So again, maxi cardigans are awesome for layering and keeping you warm yet stylish. I paired these two with the Tri-Coloured Hue hijab. Honestly, the second I saw this hijab, I envisioned this outfit. It was just meant to be πŸ™‚ I’m really into Ombre hijabs these days and I love how this one has 3 colours – beige, pink, and charcoal gray. The hues on this hijab are on point! The combination is just so classy and matched exactly with this outfit. The texture of the sweater and colours from the hijab mesh well together. These pieces were made for each other!

Outfit 4: Cropped Sweaters

Cropped sweaters have definitely become a fall/winter wardrobe staple for me! I just got into them last winter and I wish I discovered them earlier! They’re quite easy to style and my favourite way to wear them is to layer them with longer blouses underneath! Sometimes, if you have a sleeveless blouse, it’s hard to wear them with a short cardigan or a long sleeve tshirt underneath. So for added warmth, you can easily throw a cropped sweater on top! I also wear these sweaters with maxi skirts, they’re the perfect length and are a great way to hang on to your skirts for a little longer πŸ˜‰

For this outfit, I wanted to go for a black and white look and then spice it up with the hijab. Starting from the sweater, I wore a light gray, almost silver-like) sweater, a black and white grid print blouse, white jeans, and black heels. The blouse has two slits on the sides, which adds to the modern feel of the his outfit. Although unintentional, I liked how the white-black-white-black pairing worked out! I wore the Tri-Coloured hue hijab once again, because it’s pretty modern and works well with the pieces in the outfit.
