Style of the Week: Duha Shebib

Normality is blinding. This morning, I ate my same Panera blueberry bagel as I slung my bag – the same one since ninth grade – over my shoulder. I walked the same hallways and skipped down the same dungeon-like staircase to my math class. There I eagerly greeted the same group of girls I sit with every week.

It took me a good hour into class to really pause and notice these girls. I took a casual glance to my left and saw senior Duha Shebib, wearing her usual hijab with a white pea coat and sparkling flats. After turning my attention back to the white board, it hit me that she looked fashionable. Unique. And that’s exactly what a good Style of the Week entails.

Rolling my eyes at my own stupidity, I happily asked her the usual questions, and loved the fresh, new answers.

Name: Duha Shebib, senior

Hijab: hijabstoreonline.com

Coat: Dillard’s

Shirt: American Eagle

Jeans: Macy’s

Flats: Macy’s

Favorite store: Forever 21 or Dillard’s

“I wear hijabs, so I have to wear modest clothes, and usually people think that modest clothes are not fashionable,” Shebib said. ”But you can make them really fashionable and cute. Like I can make a dress into a shirt and wear jeans under it and it becomes a cute outfit.”
