Hijab fashion trends are expected to continue to grow every year. Being a part of fashion, creative model of fabrics hijab also increasingly diverse. Not surprisingly, many women who wants to be beautiful with hijab makes her look even more charming.
So that no one chose hijab the right fabrics, the following are some tips in choosing fabrics hijab.
Printed or plain, you can never go wrong with satin square scarves or shawls. Faced with a luxurious night? Choose a satin scarf for a touch of luxury. Satin capture and reflect light from different angles, so try to avoid cheap satin. Patterned or plain, you can never go wrong with square satin scarf or shawl.
Noted: If you’re a satin newbie, begin with dark colours and slowly make your way to the lighter ones as you gain confidence.
Lightweight, sheer and airy – that’s what chiffon is all about. If you love draping, chances are you will love chiffon. It drapes well to produce an effortless flair both in the front and back, and it works incredibly well with the weight of gravity.
Noted: The fabric is usually sheer and flowing, therefore, wearing an undercap is quite crucial to help secure it in place.
Fabrics paris or voile – or as I like to refer to it as the angel of all materials – has made its way into our closets as our friendly hijab. The fabric is lightweight, absorbs sweat rather well, and allows air in between the wraps of our hijabs because it is not a clingy material.
Noted: The only drawback is that voile snags easily, and this might cause the material to tear from frequent use.
This is a stretchable cotton material similar to the cotton fabric used to make T-shirts. The level of comfort it provides not only leaves us wanting more of it, it works well in warmer climates as it absorbs sweat easily. But do note that the fabric clings on to the face like “cling wrap”, so if you have a rounded face, it’s better to avoid using stretchable cotton as your hijab.
Knit material suitable for cold weather, obviously. With the help of technology, now furnished with elastane knit, stretch material with a well made according to usage. If you are living in a country that has four seasons, there is a possibility that you may have already had some thin knit scarves are ready for use during the winter. No, I do not envy.
Do you often come across maxi hijabs in the market? That’s what viscose looks and feels like. The lightweight material makes it perfect for voluminous styles as it does not give a stuffy feeling when wrapped around your head. It is also more affordable as compared to other types of fabric, so having viscose hijabs in a variety of colours won’t hurt your wallet.
Polyester is a sturdy fabric made from synthetic fibres. It’s used mostly for items such as, clothes and home furnishings. Nowadays, there is a variety of polyester fabrics made for different uses. These, too, come in a variety of prints, so one can only gawk in excitement upon seeing some. Having said that, polyester might be a little unsuitable for hijabwear as the sweat absorption level is lower compared to natural fabrics.
