"Kreuzberger girlies" - Streetsyle Two


Its fun to pair a bright eşarp with a black outfit but I'm not such a fan of this one. I have made three looks with black as the primary outfit color with an abaya, silk trench or sari option. As walking or dancing around in heels can be tough and the picture is of flats I went for them for these looks. Two of the eşarp featured here are shayla which some may find easier to style and provide more coverage. Most eşarp are square but there seems to be a rise in the production of shayla as these become more acceptable in Turkey. Shayla are perceived as more Islamic than squares as they are how Arab women wear headscarves rather than the Euro-Turkish tradition of ladies wearing square scarves tied under the chin especially those who are older and live in the villages.
