    is a virtual space where Liyana Aris documents her evolving modest personal style, which is based on the art of looking casually stylish while still remaining modest and doing it all on a budget; about 93% of her closet are filled with affordable things. (PS: The remaining 7% has a lot to do with her secret addiction to Adidas shoes and her occasional splurges on discounted high-end bags and clutches, shhh.) [+]

    My Style: Voluminous Hijab

    I've been wearing the hijab for two years and a half now. I'm surprised to discover i don't dislike wearing it; i actually genuinely like adorning it, and i enjoy the feeling of having it on.

    I don't experiment much with hijab styles, as i like to play around other things that make up my outfit. Right now i'm sticking to one style, one that i feel comfortable in and look good in (we can agree to disagree, of course).

    My face shape is this really well-rounded oval, so i've applied the same concept to my hijab style as i did to my hair in my hijabless days: the bigger and the more voluminous, the better!





    The hijab-styling in all of the pictures above all have the same basis. Sure, it could appear boring, incorporating the same hijab style in every single outfit but i spice it up by using loads of prints and using shawls and scarves of different materials.

    Which leaves me plenty of space in mind to worry about other styling aspects of my top/pants/skirt/dress/shoes/handbags.

    Not to say i'm not open to trying out other hijab styles! To be honest, i'm starting to feel like I'm a bit stuck in a rut when it comes to the way i wear hijab. So, if you know any video or photo that shows easy, laidback hijab style i can try, please do share with me in the comment section!

    Hope everyone's having a good day so far!
