Winters, coats and coffees, doesn’t that just sound like the perfect day? But what could ruin your perfect day this winter is the wrong choice of hijab and we have all seen that happen all too often. Winter hijab styles should keep you warm, comfortable and they should not create a bulky look when you’re wearing a coat. So here are some awesome ideas that we hope will guide you on how to wear hijabs with coats this Winter.
Choosing the Right Hijab
If you’re wearing a khaki coat then hijabs made of Pashmina would be the ideal choice as the two fabrics gel pretty well together and Pashmina is also very warm to wear. A very wintery but unique choice is to go for Velvet hijabs. They can be a little tricky to find and style but with a little practice, the final look is really beautiful. If you don’t want such heavy fabrics then try silk hijabs as the light silky fabrics blend perfectly with heavy blazers.
Coming towards the color coordination, since winter coats usually come in dull colors like greys and browns, you could brighten up your day by choosing a bright colored hijab. However, if you’re lucky enough to own a funky and bright blazer then go for a nude shade of hijab.
I feel that the coat and the hijab should either be perfectly matching or they should be in contrasting colors that complement each other. One such contrasting color choice is to wear your black coats with blue hijabs and you can always add in some blue accessories for some extra points.
How to Tie Your Hijab with Coats
If you keep experimenting with different hijab styles then you would know that certain styles such as turban hijabs are not suitable for winters. This is because they expose your neck and ears to the cold and that is surely not something you would want with the freezing temperatures. Another style to steer away from in winters is the infinity hijab style because of its bulky look. More importantly, these styles also don’t go very well with coats.
If you’re wearing a front-open coat, then try wearing longer hijabs, bringing the two ends of the hijab at the front and then tying them up in a braided or a bow style. Another option is to simply leave the two ends hanging at the front; this style too works best with maxi coats that are open at the front. But if you’re not comfortable wearing such long coats, then you could also opt for wearing your hijab with a scarf.
Since knitted and faux fur scarves are really trending this year, if you’re able to get your hands on a nice but small one that matches your coat then try wearing it over your hijab for cute hoody effect. Winter is also the perfect time to start layering your hijabs and wearing under caps, you could play with the colors here to find a combination that works best with your coat.
Make Your Hijab Prominent
Coats give you the perfect opportunity to make your hijabs the star of your outfit. So if you want your hijab to stand out, then opt for a monochrome outfit. Wear a really long hijab, leaving the two ends of the hijab hanging at the front, the ends should preferably be reaching your knees and then wear a skinny belt around your waist. It’s a really simple but tempting formula that you need to try.
While we’ve only discussed a few tips, there are endless other ways that you can try wearing your hijab with coats. So keep experimenting and having fun with your hijabs and have a great winter of course!
