Its surprising to me how different muslim women are. How differently we abide with Islam. As far as I kno Hijab is supposed to cover your chest and especially all of your hair.
But I guess we just grew up with different interpretations of the Quran
Umm... so would it be okay if non-hijabi women wore the clothes too? I don't wear a hijab but I do like to dress modest. Those clothes are super cute. Wish I could find cute clothes that aren't super revealing
I grew up Christian modest culture. Totally wish we'd have had some of these cute cute outfits. We were totally made fun of in school for not wearing short shorts and spaghetti straps.
Glad to see there is support for this choice and lifestyle of modesty and that it's so freaking stylish!! Good job Macy!
I'm so happy for all of the Muslim women who get to have this beautiful fashion line! I may not be Muslim, but I totally want one of those rompers! I am a Christian and I like to dress very modesty. ♥️
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
I have to say, I find this framing of Islamic dress as modest dress rather objectionable, in that it rather implies that women who don't dress in that fashion as immodest. I support clothing shops doing sections for Muslim women and stuff, that's fine, I just object to the language used to frame it.
I am not Muslim, but I have a question: is the scarf that someone wears as a hijab different (for example in shape, etc.) to a scarf that you might wear around your neck? No hate please, I’m just curious! I love all the clothes in this line, the two women look 👌!
I love this! I'm a Catholic and modesty is extremely important to me. I'm sure both Muslims and other people who want modesty to be more mainstream really appreciate this! Way to go, Macy's! I hope more stores follow your lead! Make modesty cool again! <3
Okay I love the fact that they're doing a clothing line for Muslim girls BUT come on they are lacking in the creativity department. If you travel to middle east or any other Muslim country you can get super cute stuff for half the price. Like you can find the second design every where in Turkey with better stitching. It kinda bothers me when big corporates put zero effort into stuff. If you're going to do it do it right. But hey let's be happy at least they're acknowledging us.
Any women I have seen that wear a hijab and modest clothing is very beautiful to me. It's your personality and style that out shines who you are as a person. Not what you try to flaunt with your body 💁💯
many people from all religions wear modest clothing but it's not just hijabs and abayas. many sects of christians wear dresses only (mostly long ones), many jewish women, quakers, and many more also dress modestly... so i was surprised when i got into this video. this isn't just modest clothing in general but specifically geared to muslims. while i applaud them for making this available, it would also be nice if they weren't just trying to bring in muslim buyers with this move but also making available modest clothes for all religious people (cause typically thats what who wears this stuff). but america doesn't like to look like they're acting friendly to a lot of those other groups while it's PC to act friendly towards muslims (even if they don't actually mean it unfortunately). i feel like this is more of a marketing move than anything, but regardless of the motive, its still nice to see people have modest options
I don't follow a particular religion but I do like to dress modestly...to the point where friends and family don't really understand it. I feel like my most comfortable and best self in long pants and long sleeves, not much sheerness or cleavage. And because of that I feel like nowadays 95% of retailers for my demographic don't have many options for me. So anyways I just wanted to say Thanks for making this and a big hello to my Muslim and Orthodox sisters ❤️
I’m not a Muslim and I’m truly happy for this and them, but as a Christian from a more strictly modest branch we have always struggled to find modest clothing at retail stores and it’s sad that this is finally coming to stores because of the Muslim community when some of us for our whole lives have struggled to find clothes like that. No hate just wishing modest clothes would have always been a part of retail for people whose religious views encourage modesty! :)
I'm not Muslim, but I've been pining for more modest, fashionable clothing for years. I spent my 20s disappointedly browsing online retailers, most of which catered to, erm...Quiverfull/homeschool/school marm-chic. Eyeroll, gag. Thanks for putting this in the spotlight :)
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
