Muslimah Fashion: How To Style The Crop Top In A Modest Way

Let’s talk about crop tops. This summer trend is constantly fluctuating in and out of style every year and the opinions surrounding them differ from person to person. For some, crop tops are a way to feel a little bit sexier, but in a subtle and flirty manner. Meanwhile, others may not feel as comfortable with the tummy-showing design of crop tops and choose to steer clear from this trend entirely. And that’s perfectly okay too! Not every trend is meant for everyone. However, if you do want to learn how to incorporate crop tops without baring any skin, then draw some fashion inspiration from these hijab-friendly crop top outfits.

Midi dresses are the easiest pieces for hijab girls to style their crop tops with. The extra layer instantly adds a bit of edge and dimension to your outfit. Here, model and fashion blogger, Maria Alia, beautifully mixes punk and #cottagecore by pairing her houndstooth midi dress with black combat boots. We also love how she colour coordinates her hijab to match the hue of her dress

If you have a cropped, short-sleeved shirt, you can wear your top as a lightweight outerwear piece. Otherwise, you could also layer a turtleneck (or any long-sleeved top) underneath to allow the design of your shirt to shine. As for your bottoms, some high-waisted pants will help prevent the outfit from looking too disproportionate.
