We have been receiving messages from our readers, asking us to make some styling ideas that are beach-fittingly demure for you girls who wear hijab. To answer your questions, we have already created two easy and modest beach outfits that can give you ideas to consider when going to the beach!
(1) White Shirt Dress, at H&M; Relaxed Fit Jeans, at Hanna Andersson; Sandals, at TOMS; Beach Tote Bag, at The Little Market; Red Scarf, at Faliero Sarti; Red Glasses, at RayBan (2) Blue Maxi Dress, at H&M; Long Sleeved Blouse, at Karen Millen; Flat Sandals, at Sam Edelman; Fringe Scarf, at Mark and Graham; Round Sunglasses, at Givenchy
If you are wearing a hijab, dressing to the beach might be kind of hard, since you must cover all of your skin, but still have to handle the heat under the sun in the summer. The most important thing to remember if you want to dress modestly to the beach is to wear light and breathable outfits, and make sure to not wear many layers.
For the first style, we are using an oversized shirt dress. Yep, shirt dress is definitely going to be your best friend at the beach, because it is long but still comfortable, and also effortlessly cool. You can style them with a pair of relaxed fit jeans (yes, jeans are more than welcome on the beach) and roll the edges up to create a cute cropped look. Play up this look with bold accessories like a colorful beach bag and a bright color hijab wrap.
If you prefer a more feminine look, you can choose the second style. We are trying to make a sleeveless maxi dress work at the beach. The trick is to style and wear it over a very lightweight long-sleeved top, so that you can still feel the breezy wind. This look is cute, yet covered. Also, the lightweight fabric of the maxi dress will make you feel relaxed while spending a fun day at the beach. Match them with your favourite summer flats!
Both of these looks are great for outdoor activities, especially for women who wear a hijab. Which look is your favourite?
