10 Wardrobe Staples of a Hijabista

Have you ever dreamt of a closet that magically renews itself, not having to spend another panicky morning, staring into the emptiness (or rather the crowded-ness), thinking “I have nothing to wear!”, yet again?

We have no fairy godmothers, so the closest we could get to that is by investing in a few timeless pieces that can work it’s charm anytime, anywhere with grace and elegance.

Here are a few classics:

1.  A White Button-Down Shirt

A crisp white button-down is the most versatile piece in a wardrobe. Suit up for office or dress it down for the weekends, layering it under crop tops and jumpers.

2.  Maxi Cardigans


For sheer comfort and ease without compromising on coverage.

3.  Basic Tees
