Hijab and Shades: Love it or Shove it?

Wearing a headscarf and sunglasses as most of you know was a great fashion statement in the 60s and 70s and they've manged to find their way back on the runway after all those years. I personally love the look and think no Turkish hijab is complete without a pair of sunnies:

Love this style, just add a hijab cap under and your good to go. The top look cute too actually lol, this girls found a clever use for the 'fold' in her hijab:

Usually I put in some 'style donts' for good measure but I can't really think of any for this one. The only thing I would say is make sure, there being so much choice available, that you choose a pair to suit the shape of your face. Rounded frames are generally better suited to squared-off face shapes as they add softness to already defined features. A squared frame can look too harsh on a squared face shapes. On the other hand, a squared frame will usually look better on somebody with a round or oval face shape. The squared glasses will provide more of a definition and a focal point. Although, headscarves themselves can be used to shape the face but it is a good idea to follow those general rules.

Trendy hijabies..

And lastly, an interesting pic I found on google, not sure I agree with all of them though, not the romantic one at least..
