Shades with hijabs.

10/12/2011 01:33

Sunglasses have become more of a fashion accessory than something used to protect eyes. Being a hijabi doesn’t prevent you from wearing your favorite sunglass, it mainly depends on the way you wear your hijab. Then again, the hijab styles which look good on you are determined by your face shape. Insha Allah, we would be doing a post about hijab styles and face shapes soon.

There is no particular rule of thumb when buying a sunglass. Just try different ones in front of the mirror. Don’t forget to wear your default hijab style when you go to buy them.

If you usually wear loose, wrap around styles, you can get away with big sunglasses.


If you usually wear hijab styles which emphasize your face shape, go for a neutral look.



Try to stay away from sunglasses with large frames as these can pull out strands of hair when you take it off or ruin your hijab.



There are a few trends in sunglasses we are seeing for spring/summer 2012. Let's see what they are:
