Best tips to wear your Hijab with saree outfit

#1. Always be careful to choose the color of the hijab right with saree

There are three ways to choose the color of the hijab. Here you can choose any one style that is right for your saree style.

Hijab Shawls

Saree-Color Style 1:

When you choose to wear a blouse that is of the same color as saree, you can go for either one of these styles.

To be sure of a style that suits you better, think about how you feel after wearing it. With this in mind choose the style that best suits you.

Hijab-color style1:

Go for a hijab with the same color as saree and blouse. The hijab will blend in with saree and blouse to make it a monochromatic look. You can show off a contrasting color handbag or clutch with this super simple look.

Hijab color style 2:

You can wear a hijab in color contrast to the saree. Go for a color that complements the saree color. In fact, complementary colors when used right creates a vibrant look. However sometimes contrasting colors can be a bit jarring. All things considered, color-coordinate enough the hijab and saree.

#2. The material of the hijab decides how you are going to wrap it.

The fabric of the hijab should be lightweight and easy to handle. You can wrap the hijab in any neat style if the fabric is as comfy.

If the fabric is stiff and heavy, the hijab will look puffed up. Georgette, crepe, viscous, polyester, crepe-silk, and rayon are good choices for the hijab.

If you prefer some blinks in the hijab, keep it minimal. Seeing it doesn’t attract too much attention. You can go either for a thin border or some beads here and there.

#3. How to get your blouse right with saree and hijab.

There are some tips to keep in mind when you get your blouse made.

Tip 1:

Make the sleeve length always full or a third of full to ensure full coverage.

Tip 2:

Make neck styles of your blouse always covering. You can choose a high neck, close neck, collar neck, etc. This will help you to cover your neck and back comfortably.

Tip 3:

Make sure the blouse fits you well. It shouldn’t be loose at places.

#4. Hijab styles that go well with saree outfits.

As you have got your saree, blouse, and hijab ready to go, its time to think about the hijab wrapping style.

You can wear the hijab in many different ways. Avoid poofy styles as those will not suit a saree outfit. Instead, use minimal layering with the shawl when you wrap a hijab.
