Review | Lawung- Islamic Designer Fashion for Men

Here are a few of my favourite designs from their menswear and children's wear range. Price: £55 This design is a combination between a traditional thaub and jumper. The charcoal colour and the design gives this thaub a smart/casual look. Price: £55 You won't find many thaubs in this colour. The jumper style sleeves look comfortable and practical.   Price: £50 The military jacket style buttons on this thaub really set it apart from other thaubs you may have seen before  Price: £36.99 The more traditional Saudi style thaub with a twist, the design on the neckline of this thaub gives it class.  Price: £39.99 Similar neck design as the white one above but with a printed fabric on the inner layer. Price: £49.99 This item features sincere attention to the 'small details' of the Thobe providing it with a unique and refreshing image. The garment features side packets, loose yet made

All the money went

This easy peasy volume hijab style is great to keep you warm but looking cool. For this style you will need:  1 Scarf which has a big width; At least 1 hijab pin; 1 brooch or no snag hijab pin (optional).
