ohhh, this one is nice
Here is a tucked in style I wear when I have a presentation for work or go to a conference. I think it looks elegant.
I might try this when winter rolls around again, insha’allah.
This is the Mauritanian hijab. As you can tell, they take a big piece of material and wrap it around the body and to the head. They call it a malafah. In my years of being married to a Mauritanian I’ve been unable to wrap it properly. I also trip over the fabric, lol. Sudanis also wear the same type of garment but they call it a “thob”.
I love the way Malaysian and Thai sisters wear their hijab. I tend to wear mine like this if I have on a baggy shirt or I make the hijab bigger so it covers the breast area.
