Some hijabis often tend to wear modest clothes but look stylish at the same time. The equation isn’t hard at all; you can definitely do both with a few tricks. While most girls don’t find a problem styling long pullovers with pants, it becomes trickier when they decide to style them with skirts. Whether you only wear skirts or you like to try new styles, we’ll show you how to wear long pullovers with skirts and look chic at the same time.

It is important to mention that we’re talking about thin long pullovers, not bulky ones because the latter will not work with the following hacks.

Shorten It Using Belt

You probably have a long pullover that you often pair with jeans but don’t know any other way to style it. Well, you can wear the same pullover with a skirt and use this hack to make it look more appealing. Use a thin belt or a ribbon to make the pullover shorter just like in the video and adjust it to your desired length. This way, your outfit will look neat and more attractive.

This is one of the hacks that you probably didn’t know you needed until you saw it. Did you know that you can tuck your long pullover under your sports bra?

Wear a Belt on Top

Use a thicker belt for this hack and wear it on top of your pullover without tucking it in for a more modest look. Or simply tuck your sweater all the way down and style a statement belt over the skirt’s waistline for a feminine, chic look.

Growing up, I've always wanted to become so many things: a fashion designer, painter, singer, actress, and anything that revolves around art. It wasn't until I watched "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" that I realized that writing is the one thing that will enable me to write about all sorts of things and all types of art. Writing is one of the dearest things to my heart as it expresses who I am and what I stand for. My wardrobe is pink inked, fashion is my passion, beauty is my duty, and cats are my best furr-iends❤️
