Beautiful hijab accessories from Irna Mutiara, one of Indonesian Designers. I think the above accessories are only suitable for special occassion like wedding, engagement, glamorous party, etc.
But, the first picture below looks a bit simple and isn't too big, so perhaps it can be an accessories for stylish, everyday wear.
Aren't they lovely?
For everyday wear, I think using bandana as a hijab accessories is a good idea to spice up our style. Check my post about "accessorizing your headscarf" for more options on hijab accessories.
The uniqueness of this style:
- It has a 'bun' accent on the head. To get this 'bun' accent, you can used your own hair. Just tie your hair and then roll it up on the back, a bit on top, of your head, but not too high. Or, wear a bonnet/underscarf which has an imitation 'bun', a clothed wrap with some kind of sponge/cotton inside, integrated to the bonnet. (Bonnets with a 'bun' are available in many hijab stores in Java, Indonesia).
- It uses such kind of jersey fabric headscarf as the basic layer.
- And then, add any accessories or layer you want, such as tulle, beads, bandana, etc.
