Bear in mind, that it can sometimes be a good idea to wear a hijab which is not of the same texture as the rest of your outfit. If your outfit is very textured, just go for a simple hijab, to compliment your clothing. Wearing many different textures can be a bit much at times.
If you love bold, colorful designs, they are great to wear and often go nicely with a simple, more muted toned hijab. You can still wear trendy, stylish hijabs, but keep it simple, so as not to draw too much attention away from your features as well. A simple, but effective color and style combination can be flattering.
Being smart with your color choices can make or break your outfit. If you are wearing garments which have more than one color, try to wear a hijab which picks up one of the colors and compliments the outfit. Mixing too much of the same color is not a good idea. If you are going to use the same color, using different shades can be effective.

Choose only one focal point for your outfit. If your hijab is the main focal point, wear a stylish braided, colorful hijab and a plain outfit with a simple cut, which will look stunning. But, if you happen to wear a flattering outfit, just wear a plain hijab, with not trims.
Accessories can add just the touch you want. You can select a few pieces of jewelry, sunglasses, handbags, and hijab pins to go with your outfit. Remember to wear garments and accessories which complement one another and are not too overbearing.
Try not to buy many outfits made from spandex. They are suitable to wear under a sweater or a coat, but otherwise, they tend to cling a bit much. Try to look for more "hijab-friendly clothing" such as tunics, maxi dresses, caftans and long skirts. The availability of these outfits varies depending on each season's style, so try to buy as many of these as you can when you see fit.

Choosing the right underscarf for your hijab is just as important as the rest of your outfit. The underscarf or bonnet is what keeps the hijab in place, so selecting the correct material and fit is important. For instance, wearing a lace hijab with a cotton underscarf is an excellent combination.
The underscarf also has quite an effect on the overall look. By wearing an underscarf quite far down your forehead, will make your face seem wider and shorter. To elongate the face, wearing the underscarf just at the top of the forehead opens your face up.
Hope you find these tips helpful and remember always to wear what feels most comfortable for you and compliments your features.
