Opinion | In praise of modest fashion

Recent fashion trends have started to get more modest, which everyone can be thankful for.


Fashion is a way for me to break out of the mold and be completely and utterly fearless and authentic. Since I was little, I love to try on different styles and organize daily fashion shows for my whole family. I spent hours rummaging through my mom’s closet, putting together the craziest outfits and feeling like the smartest little girl.

When I started wearing the hijab my relationship with fashion got a bit complicated and it took a while to develop a style that was really me. I struggled to find pieces that met the requirements for wearing the hijab, namely: long-sleeved shirts, long pants, and loose clothing.

However, with the rise of modest fashion on social media, catwalks, and even the music industry, I began to evolve in my own style and put together pieces that were both modest and authentic. It started to get easier to find modest clothing and transform pieces that I usually wouldn’t wear into something that fits both my religious beliefs and preferences.

My early years in hijabi, women’s clothing was filled with mini skirts, tank tops, shorts and spaghetti dresses. It is only in recent years that fashion has taken a modest turn. We have some of the most renowned and timeless brands such as Gucci designing dresses with sweeping sleeves, turtlenecks, boyfriend jeans, cargo pants, oversized tees, the list could go on.

Modest fashion is no longer defined to conform to religious demands, rather it is a dominant trend than our favorite models and artists adapt.

Modest fashion has evolved into a fashion trend with established brands such as Zara, H&M and Uniqlo explore clothing that is at the same time loose but which implements changing trends with creativity.

Fashion is becoming more and more accessible to everyone and it is heartwarming to see big companies coming up with a wider range of trends.

What does this mean for Muslim women?

For Muslim women and hijabis, modest fashion is not just a trend that has survived, but rather a belief that is ingrained in our state of mind and that remains there for the rest of our lives. The beauty of modest fashion is that it no longer belongs to one group but is open to interpretation for all. It became an inclusive trend and made its way from streetwear to runway shows. Modest fashion has evolved into a style that resonates differently with all kinds of people and that allowed the creativity of Muslim women to emerge and have a big impact on the fashion market.

Dressing modestly is more than just putting on a solid, long-sleeved shirt with loose jeans. These boundaries are dictated by my Islamic faith, but as long as I feel morally comfortable with what I wear, the emergence of modest fashion has given me the opportunity to truly step out of my comfort zone and find my style.

With modest fashion on the rise, I am able to express myself and channel my fearlessness and creativity without ever compromising my beliefs and sense of style.
