'Western' Style

Inspiration:

Dian Pelangi, Dina Toki-O, and Hana Tajima...

All of them are fashion designers with clothing lines geared towards Muslim women.  
Dian is from Indonesia, Dina and Hana are from the UK.

Surely because they all are a fashion designer, they really have a BOLD style... their own signature style, and an amazing 'fashion skills' to create fabulous looks.

In pictures below, they showed the fusion of Islamic modesty into the Western style:

Dian in London with her 'Jackie O Kennedy' style, paired with a classic Chanel bag.

Style Notes:
Instead of wearing a 3/4 sleeves-length top and a knee-length skirt, Dian wore a long sleeves blazer-like top and a long skirt. Also she wore a headscarf with fur embellishment and a scarf/shawl wrapped around her neck. And, not to forget, a big sunglasses.

Look 2:

Dian in style of a tap dancer: a tuxedo jacket, tie, hat, and even a stick... :) 
Love the mix of the prints (squares pattern mixed with stripes), and the colors..

DINA TOKI-O

Dina with a fur snood around her neck. I love her outfits, especially on how she wrap her headscarf and the addition of bracelets and a big ring.

Scarf is from: h&m
The fur snood (not actual fur): h&m
Top: Mango
Skirt: Dina's own design

The combo between the fur and the way the headscarf was wrapped gives a sense of "western".

Hana's looks in a "western" hat, fur vest, and denim jacket. Great fusion! Modest, flair and gorgeous... She's definitely one of my style icons!
