Modest style as a part of the mainstream fashion world should not come as a surprise, considering the fact that Islam is the second largest religion in the world following Christianity, with Muslim consumers spending a predicted US$484 billion on clothing and footwear by 2019 (according to a report by Thomson Reuters). Big names in mainstream fashion such as DKNY, Tommy Hilfiger and Mango have been quick to get this memo, recently releasing Ramadan special collections. H&M also featured a ‘hijabi’ model, Mariah Idrissi, in their unconventional yet iconic “Close the Loop” advert for sustainable fashion.
More ‘modest’ looks can be found in ‘normal’ mainstream fashion too. And although there is somewhat of a ‘feminist conundrum about modest fashion’ (read our editor’s blog about it: The feminist conundrum of ‘modest wear’) this doesn’t mean fashion lovers should ignore how stylish it can be. Check out the latest Uniqlo X Hana Tajima collection for example, there are plenty of stylish looks that any fashionista will love, whether modest or not.
So, whether you choose to cover up for religious reasons, just like the look or want more protection from the sun, we’ve found some super stylish modest fashionistas for you to check out.
