Check Out The Modest Work Outfits We Paired From Uniqlo x Hana Tajima 's 2018 Spring/Summer Modest Collection

Uniqlo has released its 2018 spring/summer modest collection designed by modest fashion blogger and designer, Hana Tajima - a convert to Islam of Japanese-British origin. Quite a number of the pieces in this collection are made with natural fabrics like Linen, cotton and tencel. Natural fabrics are breathable and therefore are best for making modest clothing garments because the fact that the fabrics let in air means that the wearer would be cool and comfortable.

Check below for the two outfit combinations we created with four pieces from the modest collection:


Hana Tajima Premium long sleeve shirt in colour purple paired with Hana Tajima tencel (100% tencel, Lyocell)  wide ankle length trousers in navy.

The shirt is made from 100% premium linen. Its design features include wide sleeve cuffs, darts in the front of the shirt, a loose cut and long hem. The trousers has a flared design and a stretchy feel.


Hana Tajima premium long sleeve shirt in off-white paired with Hana Tajima linen rayon wide ankle length trousers in navy.  (Shell: 54% Linen, 46% Rayon/ Lining: 100% Polyester).

This shirt is the same as that of the first outfit combination but in off-white. The trousers is made of a combination of linen and rayon fabrics but it is lined with polyester. It has a wide-leg design with pockets hidden in the pleats.


These two modest outfit combinations create smart casual or business casual looks. The following are the design features from these modest outfit combinations you can look out for when you are shopping for other similar modest smart casual outfits:

1. The shirt is designed to have a loose but structured and streamlined fit and it also has a long hem that covers the backside of the wearer.

2. The two different pairs of trousers are each designed to have a loose but structured and streamlined fit that gives the wearer a smart, chic look when paired with the shirt.

3. The colours; purple, off-white and navy are classic colours that never go out of style and the shirt and trousers designs are also classic.

Words to note:

Structured (adjective): "anything that has been put together in an organized, deliberate way can be described as structured. Clothing designers sometimes call certain garments structured when they are carefully tailored and deliberately shaped (like a blazer), rather than loose and flowing (like a long, unfitted skirt)." ~ (

Streamlined (adjective): "designed or arranged to offer the least resistant to fluid flow - having a surface free from roughness or bumps or ridges or irregularities." ~ (
