HOW TO RIGHT THE MODEST FASHION TREND IN 2022

When it comes to seeking inspiration on how to dress modestly, creator Nawal Sari gets a lot of that inspiration from other modest fashion influencers.

And what is everyone wearing lately? Nawal said that “long skirts are having a moment… a nice long skirt, a leather jacket, sneakers and sunglasses is the girl’s hijabi style.”

When the weather gets cooler, especially in the fall and winter seasons, Nawal takes a slightly different direction.

“Oversized vintage leather jackets and long socks. I love the look of a long white sock paired with sparkly heels or loafers, and a midi or maxi skirt. Elegant and warm.”
