The Guardian Getting Hijab Curious

I was surprised to find that even the Guardian has gotten into the hijab fashion fray with their gallery entitled "Three great hijab-friendly looks", although to be honest not very much in the gallery felt very hijab-friendly or particularly gorgeous:



The Guardian also carries an article from March 2009 by the wonderful Jana Kossaibati of Hijab Style who does know how to put an outfit together mash'Allah. In "It's a wrap!" Jana explores the trends that hijabi's interpret and how sisters keep what they wear halal and hijab-friendly without compromising their style:
"Browsing through the rails at Topshop's Oxford Circus store, there are plenty of vest tops and micro-shorts, but not much in the way of long-sleeved, thigh-length tops. That's to be expected, I guess. So I head to Uniqlo, where I know I can find plenty of long-sleeved cardigans. In Dorothy Perkins I spot a floral tunic I've had my eye on for ages (flowers being big this season) and a purple maxi-skirt. It turns out to be not quite so maxi though, so it is cast aside in favour of (yet another) striped scarf that I can use as a hijab. On the street younger girls are already sporting bright headscarves, which reminds me to dig mine out of my wardrobe"
