#ModestFashion: 4 Ghanaian Hijabi fashion influencers to follow for style inspiration



As hijab fashion has become more widespread, the hijabi blogosphere has exploded! Here are four Ghanaian Muslim ladies proving to us “Hijabis” can cover up and still look fashionable.

Modesty as a movement is making huge strides in helping women of all style aesthetics find innovative ways to express themselves within the guidelines of hijab.

Whether you want to follow them for modest fashion inspiration, because you love seeing other hijabis doing big things, or because it helps you gain confidence in how you wear hijab and live your best life — hijabi and modest fashion influencers are a mainstay of the social media scene.

Often times, when dressing modestly, the very thing that comes to mind is too “simple and boring.” However, times have changed, and modest fashion is becoming mainstream with so many different chic and classy options to choose from.

Today, we’re putting the spotlight on four Ghanaian ladies setting the trend for hijabi fashion styles in the country and beyond. With huge followings on social media, these ladies are proving to us that, you can always cover up and still slay.

Being a content creator is not an easy thing at all, after digging and searching for style inspo and ideas the next thing is hassling for locations which you have to be ready to listen to a few “no pictures allowed here” here and there before you finally get a non problematic spot and after getting all the lit pictures (not forgetting sometimes things don’t turn out as planned and you have to reshoot) you have to come up with good captions to be engaging as possible with your audience. If you thought blogging and content creation is all fun and games then you obviously know nothing 😃 Abaya x scarf: @ayidmahapparel #style #muslimah #hijabfashion #modestblogger #fashion #styleblogger #fashionblogger #mssdeee #ayidmahapparel #ayidmahchic #grwm #ootd #outfitideas #trends #photooftheday #accraghana #ghanaianstylebloggers
