How to Wear a Hijab Indonesian Style

Hijab consists of a headscarf that extends under the chin, accompanied by a loose dress. This style of dress is worn by Muslim women and is indicative of modesty and obeying the religious commandments. The hijab is common in Indonesia, a predominantly Muslim country. However, within Indonesia, the hijab is undergoing a transformation. Previously, the hijab was associated with dark, solid colours, its primary objective to conceal the appearance. The new style of the hijab in Indonesia, however, is more colourful, form-fitting and incorporates different fabrics, such as linen, satin and denim simultaneously. In order to wear a hijab Indonesian style, combine various colours, patterns and textures into the typical hijab attire.

  1. 1

    Put on a headscarf that covers your entire head, as well as the bottom of the chin. It can be a bright colour. Another way to wear a hijab Indonesian style is to wear two or three headscarves, with one slightly overlapping the other. The headscarves should all be different colours.

  2. 2

    Wear a long, loose dress with long sleeves. The concept of the hijab style is to entirely cover the body. However, the Indonesian style incorporates many different fabric textures and patterns into the hijab dress. For example, the dress may have thick layered lace on the sleeves and at the middle of the dress, but thin silk everywhere else. Contrasting colours highlight the beauty of the attire, while still preserving the style of the hijab.

  3. 3

    Wear long, loose trousers. One of the new innovations of the hijab Indonesian style incorporates shorter loose dresses with long, loose trousers. This is an alternative to the traditional long, loose dress. The trousers should be a solid colour, so that they will not distract from the hijab dress, which has many colours, patterns and fabric textures.

  4. 4

    Put a vest over the long, loose hijab dress or over the shorter dress. The Indonesian style incorporates vests into the hijab attire in order to provide variety. The vest should not be form-fitting and should be of a different colour than the hijab dress.

  5. 5

    Wear black sandals with high heels to add elegance to the hijab attire. Also, the black colour of the sandals will compliment the hijab, rather than clash with it.
