How Can I Match My Hijab With My Clothes?
Pairing the best hijab with your outfit can be tricky. You have to match the right hijab colors to have a cohesive and put-together look.
Here are a few ways you can do to match your hijab with your clothes:
Pick one color and wear a similar shade to get that chic and classy look. You can the same color for the clothes and accessories like bags and shoes.
Or you can also wear the same color for the hijab, top, and bottom but different colors for shoes and bags. For example, black clothing items with white shoes and white bags.
Match with the top or bottom
If you are wearing two different colors for the top and bottom, choose one to match your hijab. For example, if you are wearing a blue top and white bottom, you can match it with a blue hijab or white hijab.
If you are wearing a one-piece item then you can pair it with the best color combo like black and white, red and beige, or green and pink.
Pick one color in the patterned clothes to match
If you are wearing printed or patterned clothes then pick one color in the prints to match your hijab. This can enhance the whole look and make the overall outfit look cohesive and classy.
It is better to choose the one color that is not so obvious to really bring out that color and make it look better.
Most colors look good on any skin tone, however, there are the best colors for different individuals with different skin tones and skin undertones. It is best to identify your personal colors to be able to dress your best self.
