Since there are a LOT more Saudi’s coming to the USA for school than a few years ago, Im starting to see around my neighboorhood more and more young Saudi women who wear their shaylahs (usually printed) wrapped up as a niqab. Its the same way of wrapping the shaylah as what they do in the Gulf with a black crepe shaylah, but here they go for a thin, usually printed shaylah and wrap it up as a niqab.
Have you all seen that style and what do you think about it?
As those of you who have read my blog for ages know, Im quite pro-niqab. I wore niqab off and on for a few years before marriage and for a few months when in Saudi so I am in no ay against niqab. I guess I’m sort of traditional in that, personally I think the niqab looks nicer when its a regular half or headband niqab worn OVER a printed shaylah…like what many American munaqabaat wear. Personally, I just think it blends better and looks more sleek and less busy.
What do you all think?
