5 days, 40 hours, 2.4K minutes a week are spent at work (well, if you have a typical, boring job, that is). We spend most of our lives getting ready for, travelling to, and being at WORK. So, of course, the majority of our wardrobe would reflect that, right? Wrong.

Personally, only 20% of my wardrobe consists of "work clothes", because, well, who cares really. Just wear the same few outfits over and over. I mean, half my outfit is hidden under a desk while I click away at my keyboard for 6-hours straight anyway. *WARNING: This is destructive thinking, which can only spiral into a dark pit of fashion faux pas and dress-code disasters. (Think, "pyjama jeans".)* 

If you're like me, then you need saving - big time. With Couvert Clothing to t...

Welcome to our newly shoppable site – finally! It’s been a long time coming, and definitely a lot of hard work. But, our first collection is up, and we couldn’t be more proud.

With a lot of love and consideration, we’ve deliberated over colours, styles, shapes, and silhouettes. Keeping it "simple, yet interesting" has always been the end-goal, and we feel this collection embodies just that.

The minimal colour palette of mostly monochromatic pieces is accented with a pop of red, blush or nude. In line with the season, we have a great selection of knitwear and occasional pieces for the holidays.

“When it comes to style,” they say, “you either got it, or you don’t.”

(Thank you for your input, but we politely reject your statement)

Of course, there are certain styles that are generally accepted as “fashionable”, and certain people who seem naturally inclined toward the air of “stylish”; but, even if you don’t have style, it is certainly something that can be learnt.

Before we get too technical, let’s talk about style in general – after all, this is a style blog, so we really should cover all the bases, right? Not to be confused with “fashion”, we think of style as the way we put fashion together. To us, fashion is the clothes, the accessories, and the makeup – as dictated by current trends. But, styling is a whole different matter. It’s taking th...

“Modesty”. We hear that word a lot these days, but what does it really mean? To most people, it’s a relative term, especially when it comes to fashion. To the likes of Kim Kardashian, figures like Amaal Clooney and Kate Middleton are “modest”. But, ask the same question to a nun, and they might have a different opinion.

Either way, our fashion choices should make us feel confident. As muslim women, we try our best to adhere to the societal confines of “modesty” (to whatever extent that may be), many times at the expense of style, and in turn, confidence. And, while fashion doesn’t necessarily define who we are, I live in the thought that it is an extension of ourselves, and in some ways, an expression of our values. Our fashion choices reveal so much...
