Work Essential: Pinstripe Jilbab/Suit

We ALL know the pinstripe suit is a workplace essential. Pinstripes somehow manage to convey authority and feminity - but not too much of the latter. We all know it can be easily mixed and matched with other pieces to create a trendy look. For now we'll focus on work with this pinstripe jilbab---I like it with pink, black, cream, navy, and polk dot hijab:D and a long necklace layer underneath (the length that hits your navel bone).

Pinstripe jilbab from http://www.2hijab.com/proddetail.asp?prod=abaya-136&PARTNER=nor for $54.90 USD.

Side or front open are easiest for the transition. Dress styles and closed ones are a bit harder.

Thanks for the tips and I will probably consult you before I decide on the perfect one. LOL. I want to buy a really nice one,really good quality, the problem is Iam so petite, I dont want to get lost in it. A sister gave me one but its way to big for me so I use it as a prayer gown at home but I really want one to go out in sometimes like for special occasions and stuff, In time maybe I will start wearing it full time but Im not rushing myself and I am proud that I am wearing my hijab the PROPER way with neck and breast covered so alhamdullilah for that, so in time I will move on over to wearing a abaya which I know is the right thing to do as a muslimah. Thanks for the tips sis, cause I am clueless on purchasing one.
