At least part of the process of growing up in ‘modern’ society involves going through ‘phases’, which are manifested outwardly in our manner of dressing. So when I was younger, everybody was a skater, or a punk, or a metal head, or a B-Boy/B-Girl, or rude boys/girls, or something or other. This exists now too, but I think the lines are more blurred. Now that I’m older that type of thing isn’t exactly age appropriate, but the desire to dress up and dress nice still exist.

Anyway, where I was going with this is that for myself I’m trying to find a grown-man style for myself. Ladies in this regard have it easier. Just look at the number of hijabi women’s style blogs that have popped up in the last few years. But how do men go about finding a style that’s dressy but casual, nothing too fancy but in accordance with the sunnah of the Prophet ﷺ?

Rapper/poet Baraka Blue in the picture below is close to what I’m imagining. An outfit that would be fairly ordinary ‘smart casual attire’ but the sunnah accessories of the beard, kufi, shawl and ring make it recognisably Muslimin wear. Wallahu Alam.
