What we wear and why we wear it... 

Is about sending a message (even if that message is “I don’t care”). This makes style a big part of Muslim Cool—for women and men.

In “Sara” I look at style for Muslim women through the satire of a young woman choosing between headscarf styles—traditional, hijabi-lite and ’hoodjabi—to determine what kind message she wants to send. 

In “Muslim Dandy” I look at Black Muslim men who choose three-piece suits over thobes (traditional male dress associated with the Middle East) and white tees (casual hip hop style), to hold onto their cultural heritage and assert religious authority.
