“Muslimah Fashion Guide” is a series that shows you the essentials on how to incorporate modesty with fashion. Modesty doesn’t have to equate to being dull and dowdy.

Varied in length, these are great to have in our wardrobe as it conceals our derrière and provides some coverage to our thighs depending on its length. The relaxed fitting of it plays to our advantage in being modest. An added plus is that it doesn’t accentuate the mid-section, for those of us who have some issues in that department.
They come in various sleeve-lengths such long, three-quarters or even sleeveless. Having them in different styles and fabrics is a good investment as it can be worn for running errands, day/night out or even work-wear. The price tag on these also varies depending on fabric, style and brand.
Spoilt for choice? Grab them in basic colours and fabrics such as black and brown. If you’re feeling adventurous, add a splash of colour like coral or pink to brighten up the look.
