#2 Wrap up

Nobody style modest wear better than Vivy – scroll through her Instagram feed, and you’ll have enough ideas to last you the whole month. Take on the wrap trend into Raya and pair it with maxi trousers for a fresh new look!

#3 Blushing pink

Tak ea cue from Yuna and match your outfit from head-to-toe in a pastel hue – styling your buttoned-up top and trousers in the same colour makes it oh-so fitting for the Raya.

As a devoted Muslim women, Yuna’s personal style is a statement against Western ideals of femininity and expression, which made her the perfect choice to walk @MaraHoffman’s political #NYFW Fall 2017 show on Feb. 13. Hoffman’s show opened with remarks from the national co-chairs of the Women’s March on Washington –  civil rights activist Carmen Perez, Brooklyn-based designer Bob Bland, Muslim activist Linda Sarsour, and social justice activist Tamika Mallory – and featured a diverse modeling cast in colorful, flowing pieces. “What's great about walking for Mara is that it means so much more,” Yuna told Billboard of her NYFW experience. “You’re not just a model walking down the runway as a hanger, you're walking with a purpose.” — How did you become involved with Mara Hoffman's NYFW Fall 2017 show? Mara reached out to me. Fashion and activism has gone hand-in-hand for some designers, but Mara has been one of the pioneers [of this movement] for the longest time. It was really refreshing to be able to work with someone like her – she's super nice for someone who is so successful and very established, she's supportive, and she’s really chill. It was fun! Tell us about the look you walked the runway in. I was really happy to wear one of her designs. It was something that I would actually wear – the color, the cut, everything was loose-fitting. [With the look], I think what she had in mind was a really modern, kind of stylish Muslim woman, and that's the reason she picked me to be a part of her fashion show. She tailored everything for me – she custom-made my headscarf. Resource: Billboard.com ❤ #yunamusic

#4 Denim cool

For a more relaxed Raya, wear your favourite denim jeans and style it with a statement top like a silk kimono for a dressier look.

#5 Mix and match

Traditional wear has never been so fun to style – rather than taking the traditional route, try tucking in your top under your printed ‘parioh’ for a more modern take.

Thanks for my Top @lilypetuna! 💘
