Songstress Yuna Zarai's Hijab-Chic Style

In a time when music seems to be dominated by digital effects, over-the-top productions and even bigger personalities, it's nice to come across an artist who shines with the quiet glow of raw, unabridged talent. Yuna Zarai, a 24-year-old singer/songwriter from Malaysia is one such musician. Yuna's clear, earnest harmonies are bound to end up on your daily playlist (her single "Decorate," out on March 15, is the song to put on repeat when you're nursing a broken heart), and they're so good that she was recently snapped up by The Fader for their music label. It's not just her music we're craving, we're equally enchanted by her unique style. Being Muslim, Yuna wears the hijab, and we admire the way she's stylishly incorporated her headscarf into her modest yet experimental getups. Whether as a singer, guitarist, lyricist, blogger, or stylista (she owns her own boutique!),Yuna sure knows how to wear many hats (or shall we say scarves?) in her own inimitable way. We can't get enough of this girl (and we know you'll feel the same, too) so we tracked down the multi-hyphenated talent for a quick Q&A and photo sesh where she shows off more of her covetable style.
