How to Dress Modestly As a Muslim Girl

Dressing modestly without being made fun of is a big challenge for girls of the modern era, especially if you're a Muslim girl. This article will prove this previous sentence wrong!


  1. Wear proper hijab/khimar. This means that you must obey Allah's command to cover everything apart from your face and hands (on which opinion is divided). The clothing must be loose and not revealing the shape of your body, it must not be see through, it must not be too eye catching and it must not resemble the clothing of a man or the non-Muslims. Wearing it is a command by Allah swt, we have to obey this rule or face punishment.Dress%20Modestly%20As%20a%20Muslim%20Girl%20Step%201.jpg
  2. Avoid fancy hijabs in bright colours, with patterns or tassels or sequins. Hijab should be plain and simple in design, with maximum coverage. Not a single hair can be shown and the neck must be covered. Plain colours such as black, brown, dark blue and white are best.Dress%20Modestly%20As%20a%20Muslim%20Girl%20Step%202.jpg
  3. Do not wear make-up in front of any non-mahram males, that includes in laws. Do not leave the house wearing make-up. During Eid, using sparkly lip gloss, eyeshadow, and lipstick is perfectly fine. However, using a little makeup is okay as long as you don't abuse your right to wear it. However, there are still debates about whether or not you're allowed to wear it. Since there's no obvious answer, follow the tips above. If you're not sure about wearing it outside, that's okay, but you can wear it in front of a mahram.Dress%20Modestly%20As%20a%20Muslim%20Girl%20Step%203.jpg
  4. Consider that hijab is not just the headscarf. This is a common misconception. Skinny jeans, see-through clothes, and tight t-shirts messes up the whole modesty concept. It is preferable to wear an outer garment outside, such as an abaya or jilbab, because even loose clothing is sometimes not Islamic enough.Dress%20Modestly%20As%20a%20Muslim%20Girl%20Step%204.jpg
