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. More importantly, this day is celebrated in the aim of protecting the right of an individual to wear one, neither forcing them nor banning them.

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 Muslim religion cases this might be true, it is definitely not the most accurate description of a modern Iranian woman and modest fashion.

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

In Iran, we call these "manteau". Yes, that's a French word. And yes, we use lots of French terms especially in fashion. I'm glad you like them. :D

You must remember that Iran is a country with many different ethnic groups. Women in this most beautiful country have thousands of years behind them knowing what is beautiful or not. This country has so many architectural wonders, that it's of no surprise that the women have such go taste. But you must remember that the photo's presented here are of upper classe women and not the average person.

Trust me at least in case of Tehran and other big cities there is no need to be rich and hang out with these styles
