The other day, we featured halal styles for the hot summer weather. Today, we’re writing an article on halal fashion styles for the rainy weather.
While Muslimahs on the Western hemisphere are basking in the sun, their counterparts on the Eastern side of the world map are bracing for hard rains. In fact, the rains, which have just stopped, inspired us to write this article.
The cold, rainy weather is something that Muslim ladies deal with better than summer. Their culture requires modest fashion, which keeps them warm and relatively drier all the time.
Here are some halal fashion styles that we recommend to hijabis living in Asia so they can look cool and cozy despite the inclement weather.
Muslim Clothing Halal Fashion Styles for the Rainy Weather
In the previous article, we talked about ruffled tops and dresses in light fabrics for the summer weather. Wearing ruffled tops isn’t limited to the hot weather. You can still wear ruffled tops in the cold and rainy weather. Go for pieces made of heavier fabrics to keep you warm and dry. Just don’t choose fabrics which are too heavy and will wear you down as you commute on the train.
Rainy weather is usually cold, so wearing a scarf adds warmth. A scarf also functions as additional protection from light winds.
One of the most popular styles these days is the knit scarf. You can order these scarves online or knit them yourselves! Knit scarves are the perfect companion when you’re cozying on a coach with hot coffee and a good book.
Of course, you can opt for more classic styles like animal prints and bold colors. These styles can make your outfit pop and stand out in under the dull and gloomy clouds.
Wearing a pair of leather sneakers is very hip and functional, especially during the rainy weather. Not only will they keep your feet definitely dry, but also put you on the top of everyone’s fashion list. Leather sneakers exude coolness and sophistication everywhere you go.
You can wear canvas sneakers as an alternative. They’re less expensive and less resistant to water, but still very awesome-looking. Go for neutral colors to channel sophistication, or brighter colors to look fun and youthful.
Boots will never go out of style. And if you live in Southeast Asia, you know that these are a must, especially during the monsoon period. Muslimahs from East Asia will find boots to be functional for the rainy season, as well as winter.
Since you’re buying boots for fashion and function, we suggest that you go for flat knee-high boots or boots with low heels in neutral colors. That way, you can look still look classy and composed even if you’re braving the wild rains!
If you like rugged styles better, then we suggest buying a pair of leather lace-up ankle boots.
These are just a few of the styles that you can wear during the rainy weather. Which one is your favorite?
