Today, on February the first, we celebrate World Hijab Day. It was first celebrated in 2013 in order to educate the world on what wearing a hijab stands for.

There's been a lot of controversy regarding hijab law in Iran. The media there is also guilty of portraying Iranian women as sad and powerless. While in some cases this might be true, it is definitely not the most accurate description of a modern Iranian woman.

To deny the stereotype that women wearing a hijab are weak and unhappy, Bored Panda collected a list of Iranian women street style photos, depicting them wearing hijabs proudly and simply looking incredible. Most of them come from a blog called The Tehran Times, the first street style blog from Tehran, aimed at showing the creativity and style of young Iranian women.
