To the onlooker all head gear seems to look the same, in particular when you begin to generalize and stereotype all women wearing hijabs as one of a kind. However the truth cannot be farther than that. As with any other form of dressing patterns, the hijabs have many variations and styles that are based on many factors. These include geographical region, religious sect and social status of the wearer.
The old man turned sad eyes to the door as he listened to her leave, her perfume wafting in the air behind her. She smelled familiar, like a flower. Her presence had brought him pain and memories he had tried his best to extinguish forever. His immediate and extended family had run away, kept their distance over the years as people died around him, but there was one person who hadn’t run, one person who was sent away even before the deaths.

Women also started wearing blouses that uncovered their arms and one was witness to incandescent flesh of a woman after almost a century of restrictions.

The Chinese sash: This sash is mostly made of satin nowadays, but you can sometimes get it in silk or cotton. It is worn outside of the robe/top, but some people prefer to wear it just below the waist of the pants with the robe/jacket top worn over so that the top can be removed easily if it gets warm. And some folks altogether prefer not to wear a sash because they feels it’s too constricting.
