Searching for modest fashion inspiration on social media couldn’t be easier since the hashtag #modestfashion comes up with around 2 million posts. With platforms like Instagram posing as our modest fashion mood board, some of the fashionistas posting their looks are beyond noteworthy.
We are in awe of the women who want to make a style statement without compromising on modesty, and there are 5 that stood out to us in particular for their modest take on contemporary fashion.
Melanie Elturk - @hautehijab
I use fashion and the way I dress to tell people who I am. Sometimes it’s to convey I mean business, or that I’m from Detroit or simply that I love fashion. But one thing I convey every single day through my hijab - is that I’m Muslim. What an honor and a privilege it is to represent our beautiful faith in this way! Sometimes I actually feel bad for our male counterparts that don’t really have an equivalent marker - because the hijab strengthens both my identity *and* my faith. What a beautiful blessing And what are your thoughts? I’m wearing the Viscose in Ultraviolet #HHSpottedClub #TapToShop #HijabStories
Modest style icon and inspirational entrepreneur, Melanie Elturk, launched her very own side hustle, Haute Hijab, after garnering a massive fanbase on Instagram. Haute Hijab offers a fabulous selection of beautiful hijabs. If you’re one to let your hijab do the talking, you’d be missing a trick by not following her.
