Fundamentally Why We Cover

"And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display theri beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof, that they should draw theri veils over their bosoms adn not display their beauty except to their husbands, tathers, husbands' fathers, sons, or their sisters' sons, or their women or the slaves whom their right hand possess or male servants free of physical needs, or small children who have no sence of the shame of sex; and that they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments. And O ye Believers! Turn ye all together towards Allah(S.W.T) that ye may attain Bliss." (Al Qur'an 24:31)

How to Look Pretty and Cool in Hijab

Modest doesn't have to be unattractive or boring! Don't forget that the purpose of the Hijab is to protect your honour and beauty from unacceptable gazes. But, looking good is also part of Islam.

Figure out your style. Hijabs come in many styles. Try pinning or tying your scarf in new ways, or consider one-piece or two-piece pull-on hijabs.

Recognize which colors suit your complexion and eyes, as well as your outfit.However, this does not mean to put on hijabs with bright, vibrant, eye-catching colours. Try avoiding bright pink, red or acid green, etc. Dark brown, grey blue, black is encouraged. Dark and bold colors.Make sure that your understanding of hijab as general modest dress is compatible with the way you dress.

Never try wearing skinny jeans (or anything too tight) with a hijab.Your hijab will end up looking like a big hat on your head and distort your shape.

Wear hijab in combination of colors. For instance, if your dress is yellow then wear some darker color hijab.

You can make your hijab pretty by adding some beautiful pins and ribbons for occasions.It makes the overall look stylish and elegant.

Do not feel shy about new style ideas for wearing hijab. Check the styles on this site for creative approaches to wearing hijab.

Why do we cover?

To cover is a desired benefit. The outward appearance of modesty begets an inward modesty as well, bringing confidence, security, and comfort to your public experience.  When a woman is covered, men and others are unable to judge her detailed appearance. Instead they are drawn to her personality and character.
AnNisa Designs targets fashion that reveals personality & character in women who cover.
