Some people have been messaging us asking us for winter tips – our suggestions for cardigans, coats and more. Me and Nadyah will be giving you our top winter ideas with a new blog every few days. This is part 1 of 8!
I love this from the ‘Only’ brand at New Look – I love patterned cardigans and knits – always a little bit funkier than something plain! The colours on this are amazing and the cardigan is definitely toasty warm. I would match with a hijab of one of the colours on the pattern - the jade green would look amazing!! £39.99 available here (in 3 different colours).
This one is much simpler and definitely a wardrobe staple. Tan coloured cardigan from Forever 21 – long enough to cover the bum but not as long as the above one, so would need some looser trousers. But easy enough to throw on when you need something quick! I bought it a few weeks ago so should still be in shops & costs £14.99 if I remember correctly! I think black and tan looks amazing so a black hijab with this would look super classy!
And lastly.. I love cable knits. This was my ice skating outfit (don’t you love winter!) – as it's short, the trousers have to be fairly loose. I wore this cream jumper with grey trousers from Urban Outfitters. The jumper is from American Eagle Outfitters bought on one of my US trips, but it's quite basic so you should be able to find something similar on the high street. Here is one example from Forever 21 for just £10!! Bargain. Or a cardigan version in the picture below and online here (I really need to get one of those!). With hijab I would have matched it with something neutral like this from Monsoon (see pic below). I hope you like the geek glasses!! They are actually my real glasses…I had laser eye surgery earlier in the year so I don’t need them now, but I am going to replace the lenses with non-prescriptive ones cos they are a great funky look sometimes!
If you want any more suggestions, check out one of my previous posts on some cardigans and jumpers I bought from Forever 21 too - the royal blue one here is one of my favs, and definitely brightens up any dreary morning!! May still be in stores, but anything that colour is a win for me!
