A video by the ChicMaya, can't wait to try this look out
Chic and party worthy:
More of a winter look:
Alternatively, if you are just bored with life and can't really be bothered (i.e. me..), then this is the look for you:

1. Finding what clothes your are comfortable with can be a bit of a predicament at the start: Although most women who get to the point of wanting to wear the headscarf will be dressed pretty modestly already, some are not (including myself in that). I found it very hard when I first started wearing the scarf, to decide what 'sort' of hijabi I wanted to be. Abaya? Skirt? Jeans? Leggings..?! I tried them all and in the end settled for the middle (jeans/skirt). I would defiantly recommend you get that nailed and read on it thoroughly before covering your hair. Oh, and doooon't let any old person influence your decision - I did this and it led nowhere. In the end I realised that everyone has had different experiences, you just have to do what you feel is right.
2. 'Muslim' men.. The Quran explicitly and categorically commands men to lower their gaze and guard their chastity before it tells women to lower their gazes and cover. Paradoxically, I have found it is non Muslim men that fulfil this requirement by not 'checking out' hijabis or modestly dressed women and Muslim men that don't. Okay, firstly and obviously, they are not all like this so I am not making a sweeping generalisation but talking from experience. Secondly, this is never eeever a good thing nor should it be flattering - they look at anything that moves, it's really repulsive actually.
*Translation: "Nothing grabbed his attention.. except a french abaya.." - I'm pretty sure this is right but my Arabic reading isn't amazing so could somebody verify?

THE BAG ^-^
Okay, they are my greatest weakness so I got slightly ahead of myself when looking for the bags and the price limit slipped my mind a little on some of them. But I have said before and will continue saying, if there is one part of your outfit you shouldn't be stingy with it's definitely the bag. You could be dressed head to foot in Prada but if you ent got the right bag you might as well have bought your gear from Peacocks..

I know a lot of you are probably going to think the next look is 'alright actually..' but would you pay for it? Would you even pay for a magazine that featured it? Most people would be able to put a better outfit together at home. This is not fashion, it's non-fashion. And speaking of money, they do not even publish the prices of their featured clothes.. very useful.
This next one is a shocker. I'm speechless. (But vividly reminded of star trek/wars):
Speaking of which... They threw a poncho and yet another collar into the mix and voila - an outfit that would get you sectioned.
To be fair, it's not all bad, in fact I would happily wear either of the next two dresses but the vast majority of the outfits featured in this magazine are disasters. I don't see why you should have to pay about £15 to get it shipped here and then have to riffle through 15 disgusting looks to find one nice one that you could have put together anyway.Guess I'll be sticking to my weekly Look magazine then..
