Whether it’s sportswear or super luxe, this gal knows what she’s doing.
Halima Aden is without question one of our favourite models. From the runway to big-name advertising campaigns (hello, Nike) she’s making waves.
Kanye West is even a fan. Aden is going places, and she does it all looking great. The 20-year-old has earned her place as one of the world’s biggest hijabi models – there’s no one better to look to for a little inspiration.
Join us for a roundup of some of the hijab styling tips we’ve picked up from following her on the ‘gram.
Sequins are always a good idea
Sure, maybe not one for every day, but how cool is this? It’s very cool. Also note how it matches the rest of her outfit. A classic Aden move.
Or keep it simple
This rosy pale pink is pretty and flattering. The light, floaty fabric works beautifully to create a super feminine look.
Because we like to keep it health goth around these ways. Or sports luxe, either is fine. What we’re saying is we love fancy gym gear as street clothes.
The limit does not exist
Sometimes you’ve got to turn it up to 11. We love Aden’s brooch and velvet combo here.
As this shot shows, though, a solid strong colour can have just as much impact on its own. Lady in red.
Don’t be afraid of prints
This much of a busy print is a little intimidating, sure, but against the solid and complementary colour of her dress, Aden’s hijab works. Deploy with caution, but don’t shy away.
Literal jeans on your head optional, but Aden makes this American Eagle denim hijab look like a million dirhams. Weekend ready.
Because who wouldn’t want to have a little posing session with Rihanna?
