I can’t emphasize enough the struggle of modest fashionistas when it comes to finding chic clothing options for the office. The fact is professional Muslim women like myself have a tough time coming across stylish corporate apparel. More often than not, we are left to rely on our creative juices in order to glam up our outfit game…and not to worry, it’s not as bad as it sounds 🙂 . Dressing modest fly can be as simple as finding a multitude of ways to wear a jacket, dress e.t.c.
This week, I went minimalist by reinventing how I styled a lightweight belted jacket from Uniqlo’s (spring 2017) modest wear collection. This jacket came with an adjustable slim belt and it is designed in a way that conceals the belt to give a clinched dress effect. For a more daring mode, I switched out the jacket belt for a more elaborate belt. I wore the jacket as a wrap paired with a turtleneck tunic and sealed the look by accessorizing with a wide waist belt.
I’ve included links (highlighted) to available outfit items below the first picture.

I’m a project manager by day and a fashionista/style enthusiast always. I have a diverse range of contradictory interests…fashion vs activism, ice cream cake vs spinach salad…but I love & proudly embrace them all.
