2/ Oh, one last thing - if in doubt go for black, trust me you'd sooner be safe than sorry, especially when you're expected to be looking bright, fresh and smart.. you don't want to be looking even remotely fashionably challenged.3/ P.S. Absolutely no asymmetrical or 'zig-zag' hem lines. Yuck!
What To Do:
Enough of the eye sores, next some nice skirt suits :D
The two suits above are from modern muslimah. They're really smart and stylish, I love the second one, it looks so good with a Turkish style hijab (far more professional looking than a shayla style). The great thing about suits is you don't have to wear the top and bottom together all the time and you can mix and match with different tops and blouses. The runway is great for inspiration.
Luckily, smart trousers are generally loose fitted. If you go for the wide leg trouser suit you usually just need to make sure that your bottom is properly covered :) You can achieve this with a loose pair of trousers or a longer jacket.
The first two suits are from onestopplusrewards
I like these but I must admit the first suit is slightly dull so if you go for a colour like this, wear a statement bag to balance it out.
Unfortunately the above shop is dedicated only to the larger woman but I love these suits from elegance
They have a really nice selection of suits I would love to own but they come with a heavy price tag too! :(
If you don't like the suit altogether, there are other ways to dress smart of course. The most obvious being simply a skirt or wide legs and blouse..endless possibilities
And the second (my fave idea) a long dress with a smart jacket over the top. This pic is just to give you and idea of the look but you can go for different colours and styles to suit you:
And finally my idea of a 'suit alternative' outfit:
Um, the shoes are there more for show to be honest..I would wear flats :D

First off, she's gone pretty casual in this picture, I like the look I just hope there's nothing evenly remotly related to denim on the bottom half :S It looks like she's gone for a belt above the hips- a far better alternative to wearing a waist belt if you really must wear one at all.
This tuquoise hijab is so cute ^-^
And my fave pic, I love the colours and if that's a dress it certainly looks stunning:
My steal, is of her demin jacket look..ahh who doesn't love a maxi dress?
I'm not sure about her style simply because the photos don't show the whole outfits..hope you liked it anyway :D

Starting with Primo Modo and its selection:
OK, so they don't look too bad but the price (cheapest $85) is really unreasonable for what it is but I have to say my fave is the pink one up top :D
Modest Fit:Slim Fit:
Active Fit:Well I'm still not sure about the whole thing to be honest, I think I'll shove it for now even though I can see why it would be useful to Muslimahs and it is a great invention ^-^ But what about you?
If you're tall, flats are great but if you're more petite go for something with a bit of heel. If want even more coverage, the highstreet usually has a selection of shirt dresses in check, or internet shops certainly will. Forever21 has one here and ASOS has a very pretty (and rather pricey) one here. Hope you like the pick!

So, I'd say the key to getting this look right and not overdoing it, is to start with a blank canvas i.e. a solid coloured hijab. Get experimenting!

Beautiful Moroccan dresses next, I love them all and really wouldn't mind owning any of them although, if I had to choose, it would be the last one because I love that cream and red:
A rather wonderful take on Moroccan fashion next, I adore those gorgeous beaded necklaces. Stunning!
It's interesting, really, that Miss Morocco wears hijab but Miss Saudi Arabia doesn't..but that's a different story. Moving on, Princess Lala of Morocco in a lovely traditional dress..
Well that's it, I do like the unique style of Morocco..but I still think Americas got it :( ah well, more 'country' styles coming soon!
