This easy-to-wear style of hijab is perfect for the ladies that need extra coverage. Some sisters call it the full coverage hijab. It also goes by khimar, chador, jilbab or the Al-Amira hijab. The word ‘khimar’ itself originates from the meaning ‘cover’.
This modest headdress covers the head, neck, and shoulders, while flowing down to the chests or stomach. The length is adjustable as per your preference. Slip it onto your head, adjust it nicely around your face and chest, and you are hijab-ready in under a minute. It is a favorite among many ladies for its low maintenance nature, as it requires minimal styling effort, providing excellent coverage, and allowing for easy movement. It may be worn with an under-scarf.
The overhead abaya works best as a prayer dress. You can also pop this fuss-free hijab on over your clothes to run some errands. It’s great for walking and working too. There are several ways to wear this handy, one-piece garment. You can get a khimar that’s got elastic at the cuffs for an exaggerated look. You can opt for a khimar that has subtle floral patterns so that you’re bubbly but not too loud. If plain colors are your preference, you can add contrast to your outfit with a different tone of khimar. The khimar is great for the summer as it floats while you walk, giving you a cooling effect.
