Modest fashion is expanding and we couldn’t be happier about it
ASOS has just launched a new style edit with modest fashion influencer, Shahd Batal, and we’re loving it! With items ranging from floral blazers to statement maxi dresses and comfy co-ords, the range is so refreshing.
23-year-old Shahd Batal started sharing hair and beauty tutorials and modest fashion tips back in 2016 and this is when her role as an influencer began. After deciding to wear a hijab 3 years ago, Shahd has shared her life as a young Sudanese-American woman with her 274k YouTube subscribers and 366k Insta followers (@shahdbatal). It’s safe to say she’s popular!
In this ASOS style edit, which launched 14th April, Shahd has picked her fave ASOS DESIGN pieces, plus a few of her favourite beauty products, to create an edit that embraces her modest yet versatile style. Click here to check it out.
