Read about everything to do with fitness, nutrition and lifestyle for Muslim mums and sisters from Carin Timskog.
I often get asked where I buy my hijab outfits, so here we go!
As a busy, hijab-wearing mum, I know how important it is to be modest, but also to be feeling practical. My lifestyle includes walking, trekking, running, bicycling, rollerblades, swimming, tennis, playing with my girls in the park, and being dressed smart casual as well.
Therefore my lifestyle requires a hijabi outfit that is:
I know how difficult it can be to wear a hijab and be active! Whether that is to go walking, running, fitness training, or being sporty playing with your kids. At the same time, as you want to be modest, you must feel and look like the queen you are and move freely.
The above struggles were all solved when I found Syndeed. I feel modest, and I wear a hijab. I'm comfy, I feel cool, and I can move. I absolutely love it.
Since I've started to wear my first instant hijab from Bokitta, it's impossible to wear a regular scarf again. I absolutely love these. These are practically in two pieces; a comfy large hairband over the head and the scarf stitched together so that it stays in place without making you hot.
So comfy and practical for both sports and when you are dressed smart casual. My favorites are Voila Maxi and Freestyle with crossed inner.
For sports clothes, and equipment, that I wear at home or under an abaya, I love Decathlon. Very reasonably priced, comfy and great quality!
In addition to the above I also find long sporty abaya hoodies and modest clothes at LC WAIKIKI from time to time.
I’ve also recently found another Turkish brand in a local store, which is my new favorite. It’s called Carmelya. After some googling it seems to be that this brand is for whole sale only, but if you come across it; it's highly recommended!
Finally, I also love Shukr Islamic Clothing and Neyssa Shop, where you can find simple, beautiful and practical hijabi outfits for both sports and leisure time, as well as for being dressed smart casual.
I hope this helps you to stay modest, comfy and active!
