…a Mac jacket!
Given the changeable British climate a Mac is an ideal and useful item to have in your hijab wardrobe!
The great aspect of Mac’s is that they are lightweight and not bulky, yet provide a cool barrier against windy climates. A mac can be layered with wolly scarfs for that additional warmth when its that bit more colder but not quite chilly, (such as the transition from autumn to winter), or alternatively can be worn alone for the times when it is not quite warm (like now)!
Another plus of Macs is that they are ideal for the lady’s who wear abaya’s. This is because the length of a mac will prevent the abaya from flowing around too much during a windy climate, and is light enough to not be bulky in the spring season.
The popularity of this practical garment means there are lots of different styles in the shops to suit your tastes and figure. I have noted a few differing Mac styles below:
