One of the many, many reasons why I really like and enjoy wearing the French style overhead jelbab …whether one or to piece is because they come in colors…lots…and lots…and lots of colors! mash’Allah. I love that I can rock out in a one piece overhead garment in say light blue or purple or green or wear a two piece to school in taupe…it kind of breaks the “stereotype” that all overhead jilbaabs MUST be in black or other dark tones and that we’ll…we cant have fun with color too. While I know some sisters prefer darker tones due to practicality or for feelings of extra modesty or even believing that dark tones are preferred for Muslim women in Islam….still its nice having the option of color. I generally prefer darker tones myself…mainly for practicality but at times I’m not adverse to splashing out with color.
Most of the major jelbab producers in France have out new tones for the spring/summer and fall…such as burgundy, light pink, a brownish pink, water blue and even a very light taupe. Ive…for some reason I cant quite fathom become really rather intrigued by the pale pink jelbabs…LOL…and im NOT a pink-fan at all…but its just so unexpected, totally un-like me yet muted…I dunno…its rather intriguing…
So what do you think? would you go for a pale pink jelbab?
Also…since I *know * I will be asked…:-)…yes the shops stocking jelbabs which are listed under my links do carry jelbabs in pale pink and other colors…just poke through them. Also I still have in stock a small number of colored jelbabs as well.
