"I believe dressing is power, so choosing the best way to style your hijab for the corporate world is important," Chi told BuzzFeed.

"I avoid elaborate hijab styles when going to work," she said. "I prefer to keep it simple and stylish."

For her stunning looks, Chi prefers a Turkish hijab.

"I like the Turkish hijab style for work because it's very neat and simple to wrap," she said. It also saves her a ton of time in the mornings. "It can be achieved by placing the scarf on the head — ensuring both ends are even in length — and pinning the scarf together under the chin. Take the loose ends of the scarf and wrap them around the head and neck."

"I love colorful hijabs that contrast my outfits," she said.

"To add an element of interest to my hijab, I like to incorporate brooches, pins, and funky clips or lace," she said.

"I always use rectangular-shaped hijabs so that I have more length to cover, wrap, and make knots or bows," she said.

Chi also pays attention to fabric structure and texture to elevate her stylish profesh ~vibes~.

"Some hijab fabrics are stiff while others have stretch," she said. "So depending on the fabric, the hijab falls differently."
