9 NEVER-BEFORE SEEN WAYS TO STYLE A BUTTON-UP OVERSIZED SHIRT



I don’t know about you guys but I absolutely enjoy seeing one type of clothing used in several different ways, especially if its UNIQUE. It’s always refreshing to see an article like "5 ways to wear a scarf".

A classic oversized button- up shirt should be a staple in everyone’s wardrobe. It's a piece that will never go out of style, and can instantly elevate an outfit for that model-off-duty look. Today, I’m styling the @shopnaballahchi Classic oversized shirt in 9 different ways! Hopefully, you can get some inspo for the next time you wear your button-up shirt. Take your fashion game to the next level and keep in mind that you dont need to be a fashion expert to know your way around your wardrobe. 

1. SASHAY AWAY
This style reminds me of the ladies who wear sashes at pageants. How to wear: Start with wearing your shirt on one side of your body then tie the rest around your bodyñ on the opposite side. Shirts are quite simple, therefore it means you have more room to play with how you style them.

2. WEAR IT BACKWARDS.

3. KNOT THE END 
While wearing backwards you can knot the end of the shirt to create an entirely fresh and fun style. It's amazing to see just how drastically different each style is.

4. WEAR IT WITH A TWIST (LITERALLY).
Another style you can do while wearing the oversized shirt backwards, is to twist it and tie it around your waist.

5. LEAVE IT OPEN FOR A RELAXED CASUAL VIBE.

6. HANG IT OFF THE SHOULDERS.
Open the first few buttons on the shirt and slide it off one shoulder...

7. OR BOTH..FOR A COLDER SHOULDER LOOK.

8. GET SNATCHED
For a more put-together look you can belt it.

9. UNBUTTONED FROM THE TOP 
With only the top button done you can wear the shirt with rest of the shirt open.

 Try these looks the next time you wear an oversized shirt, and let me know which one you liked the best!

-Naballah.

RAMADAN SUMMER COLLECTION 2021

Ramadan Kareem guys! 


I hope that you feeling that free-spirited wanderlust lifestyle of fun and adventure this year.

My Ramadan/ Summer collection, inspired by emboldened femininity, celebrates the modern day, adventure-seeking, covid-avoiding, world-traveling goddess! With a serene colour palette and soulful cowl drape these kaftans are reimagined with sophistication and grace. My collection features just 5 styles exclusively available online.  (SHOP HERE) I'll be rolling them out day by day. Annnnddddd just incase you were wondering, these versatile pieces have a longer shelf life than just Ramadan. 


WHERE TO WEAR THIS KAFTAN? 

Ideal for sun-drenched afternoons on the  beach, on a yacht or a daytime wedding.  This kaftan can be styled to adapt to the occasion. And did you peep the necktie detailing? I'm obsessed! Easy, breezy, billowy, it creates the perfect departure from the ordinary. You can also wear it to an evening tea party or to a multi-course dinner at a gourmet restaurant. Completely practical. Talk about wear on repeat! 


HOW TO STYLE THIS KAFTAN?

One of the keys to wear this kaftan is to dress it up or down with accessories. A clutch purse, jewelry, sandals, heels, scarves, bandanas and jackets. My go to essentials for styling a kaftan are: a cute, comfortable pair of sandals or heels, a bold pair of sunnies and a big glam hat.  Perfect for everyday pairings from sunrise to sunset and the great thing is that these kaftans are light and doesn't take up much space in your travel luggage. So there’s always room for a few more outfits when the occasion calls for it.

HOW TO STYLE A PAJAMA OUTFIT MODESTLY



Hello! And Happy 2021!


Wow. I can't believe it's been 2 years since I've posted on my blog. Damn. You turn to do one thing and time just disappears. You know we’ve all hit that time when blogging just doesn’t seem like a priority anymore, and unfortunately, that was 2019 for me. There's been so many new and exciting developments in my life where I found myself unintentionally putting blogging on the back burner. Although we have been inside for most of last year, the pandemic has given me a lot of time to reflect on fashion and plan new content. With the start of a new year I am ready to resume fashion blogging and return from my (unintentional) blogging hiatus. 



So let's dive right in! I’m always on the hunt for outfits that are equally comfortable and stylish, and this luxurious pajama set from Designer J Angelique is definitely a happy medium between a full-on look and loungewear. It's flowy, cozy, unrestrictive and chic. Since the onset of the pandemic I think that sleepwear-as-streetwear is having a major moment and here's how I styled it: I love to bring a pop of color to the world through my personal style, by adding a little or a lot of flair. I incorporated more primary colored pieces ( yellow headwrap and red earrings), since the pajama set was already a bold royal blue. Yes! Primary colors aren’t just for kindergarten art class.  Red, blue, and yellow are all bold color choices on their own, and when mixed together, they become an eye-catching, rainbow outfit.



A turtleneck is an iconic piece that can take any look to the next level. Its sleek, stylish and sophisticated presence adds interest to every outfit. It hugs your body and accentuates your face. I personally love white, because that color makes me feel inspired and refreshed. If you love turtlenecks already, I'm right there with you. If you haven't given one a shot yet, you should.


I accessorized this pajama set by adding a small polished clutch purse. Sophisticated accessories like a classy shoe, a pair of sunnies or hat works well too. Accessories don't need to match your outfit but your overall look should be proportional.
 


Great outfits are all about balance.
