Polar vortexes, sub-freezing temperatures, perpetually cold toes and fingers, or even just the dreary days of winter dragging on - it’s enough to make you want to give up on finding the cozy and high tail it to someplace warm (maybe even tropical!). By this time of year, so many of us are DONE with the winter scene and need a change of pace.
Maybe you’re planning for a few days away to a tropical resort, or even just a weekend to warm yourself up and escape the winter blues. But what to wear? How can you get out of the winter mindset of sweaters, boots and (probably) your Jersey hijabs right now? We are here to help you get your vacation on! We’ve got some wardrobe and hijab recommendations for you to help create your ultimate tropical/resort/getaway wardrobe!
1. Viscose Hijabs
Let’s start with your hijabs, because if you’re planning to go someplace warm, you need lightweight and easy-breezy to wear with all your fabulous outfits! Our viscose hijabs are just the thing, with its perfect, gauzy woven finish - super light and easy to wrap without pins. Get them in multiple colors to mix and match as you please with whatever you decide to wear that day!
2. Global-Inspired Prints
Globally-inspired prints are super on-trend right now, whether you find your inspiration by where you’re from or where you’re going! Try some folk-art inspired prints from around the world to add an international and festive flair to our outfits. We love our chiffon hijab prints, especially this Blue Agave hijab, this Painted Paisley hijab (with its elegant mix of blue and pink colors in a paisley print) and this print - On the Bosphorus, which melds paisley with floral in shade of bright vermilion, fuchsia and butter yellow. Or, mix a solid hijab with a beautiful print in a maxi dress (like this one by Louella) or tunic top!
In fact, we put together a whole Getaway Girl collection for you that brings together the best of tropical, lightweight prints in chiffon, our viscose hijabs and more of our Everyday Chiffon hijabs full of tropical, summery colors to get you in the mood for a escape to somewhere warm and maybe even tropical!
3. Sun Hats and Visors
Hopefully the sun is going to factor big time into your getaway plans, and so getting yourself a beautiful sun hat to protect your face from the rays while sporting an oh-so-stylish look is just the ticket! This floppy option from Old Navy is a great choice that won’t bust your budget! Or, if you want to bump up the chic factor, check out this Packable Woven sun visor from Nordstroms. Sun visors are often a hijabi girl’s favorite sun accessory (outside of her sunnies, obviously!), because it works beautifully with the hijab to make for an elegant-yet-protective look.
4. All-things Crochet
Also, one of the biggest resort or vacation style trends right now is anything and everything crochet! Get yourself a new crochet bag or beach bag to hold all your vacation necessities. This white-and-black fringe tote from DSW Shoe Warehouse is a nice, roomy size to hold everything you may need for the beach or a day’s trip hiking or even just lounging poolside! Or, if you want something smaller, try this crossbody fringe and crochet bag from Shopbop, which is a cute option to compliment your vacation look!
5. Bold and Bright Colors
When it comes to your clothes, dig into your closet and break out those bold, bright colors that have been hiding behind your darker, winter-oriented neutrals. Bring out those maxi dresses and breezy tunic tops to wear on jeans for an effortless global vibe. Check out this stunning Moroccan Kaftan dress by Anna Hariri. The geometric orange print against the beautiful blue background will complement any vacation wardrobe!
6. Turn Winter White into Summer White
Here's another idea - why not take your winter white and parlay it into the all-white outfits of summer? Try white linen pants like these or cotton maxi dresses, skirts or even caftans! Pair your white ensembles with our Everyday Chiffon Hijab in Ivory for a full monochrome look, or brighten it up with one of the Getaway Girl prints suggested above!
With just a little effort between searching through your own closet for those lightweight tunics, skirts and dresses you have tucked away paired with some of these new purchases, you’ll soon be set to escape to somewhere warm as a respite from these lingering cold days of winter!
