Looks to steal from Leena Al Ghouti

Leena Al Ghouti stands out from the crowd with her extra-long headscarf mixed with her androgynous look; her nickname to herself is the Arabian Rapunzel as her headscarf reaches the floor most of the times.

The 26-year-old Palestinian-Canadian who lived in the UAE for most of her life ended up pursuing a successful career on social media as she found a way of mixing her two passions; discovering fashion and expressing her graphic design skills.

Her feed is filled with some of the most fashion-forward looks that we have seen in the region and yet she uses regular items that we all have in our closet; She likes mom jeans, men’s suiting, sweaters, and extra-large T-shirts and of course, plenty of accessories to go along with her signature Hijab look.

Some might call her style modest however she believes her style is about being comfortable and confident and stylish.

Today Leena Al Ghouti shows us that her fashion knowledge goes way beyond dressing modestly in some of our favorite 10 looks

On the rare occasions that Leena wears a dress, she makes sure to twist it to its full potential. She creates her black staple look and adds on a flower printed Gucci dress with a golden bow and the total look is very picturesque and can be recreated with a Zara dress.

Leena Al Ghouti breaks her regular rules on this look and allows her imagination to run free.  She wears a black and white polka dot shirt with a multicolored striped skirt and a pair of sating greens pumps. We are not sure how to feel about it, but one thing is for sure, this outfit took guts and creativity.
