Hijab in the Corporate World


Recently I've been getting some questions regarding what to wear in the corporate business world as a Hijabi. For those of you who are just joining my blog for the first time, I work at PricewaterhouseCoopers a worldwide accounting firm and the attire in the office is business casual. My OOTD (outfit of the day) posts are usually me on my way out to work in the morning, however I realize that most of my outfits consist of skinny bottoms or boots which technically are more relaxed on the traditional business casual attire. I wanted to give you some ideas on how to wear the 'traditional' business casual attire in the office. These black pants are honestly my favorite wide leg trousers to wear to work. They are from none other than Target which I love because they are affordable and comfortable. Target has many different fits in their pants that you can pick to your liking, these specific pants that I'm wearing are Fit 3 and I have been buying them for a few years now. 
Tunic & Cardigan: Forever 21 // Pants: Target // Shoes: BCBG 

The way I like to mix and match my outfits based on the diagram above is choosing a solid bottom and playing around with the combination on top. You can wear a printed top, as I have, with a solid cardigan or even with a blazer or sweater on top. You can also wear a printed cardigan or blazer with a solid top as I have in other posts like here. Usually if my tunic or top is long I wear a shorter cut cardigan so the tunic can still be seen. If the tunic is more on the short side, I wear a longer cardigan on top to cover up more. The main idea here is you can mix and match your tops and bottoms to your liking and comfort level. Make sure to check back for more corporate Hijabi look layouts coming soon!
