Salaam. Bismillah Al Rahman Al Raheem.

Hijab encompasses the intent, the mind, the action (guarding ones chastity from those you are unmarried to, talking, walking, interacting, spending) and the clothing, for both men and women.

Allah commands Women to wear a specific clothing which is the Khimar, a long veil covering your bosom, and the Jalabiya which is a long dress. Allah Al Rahman Al Raheem also commands that women walk in a soft straight manner so that there female parts do not shake and become apparent. Women are also commanded to hide adornments which Allah adorned us with, breasts, hair, buttocks, legs, the womans curves. Hijab also means no embellishments such as fancy clothing and jewelry and heels, and such. Not only are such embellishments against hijab but it is not Humble of us to wear in the presence of others then our family. First because of beauty, lust, pride, envy, attention, and second because those with less money will feel bad. We should be simple folk like our RasoolAllah may peace and blessings be upon him and those he loves.

These answers although I have given them can be found in the Glorious Qur'an. All answers can be found in Allah AlRahman AlRaheems Words. So check the Qur'an before getting opinions of others and inshaAllah next time you won't have to ask answers from anyone but Allah AlMalik AlQuddus.

Allah prescribes it, so will you disobey Him whilst knowing it?

Say to the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty: that will make for greater purity for them: And Allah is well acquainted with all that they do.[24:30]

And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husband's fathers, their sons, their husbands' sons, their brothers or their brothers' sons, or their sisters' sons, or their women, or the slaves whom their right hands possess, or male servants free of physical needs, or small children who have no sense of the shame of sex; and that they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments. And O ye Believers! turn ye all together towards Allah, that ye may attain Bliss.[24:31]

You have no option:

It is not fitting a believer, man or woman, when Allah and His Messenger have decreed a matter that they should have any option in their decision. And whoever disobeys Allah and His Messenger, he has indeed strayed into a plain error. [33:36]

And if you defy Allah (swt):

This is because they defied and disobeyed Allah and His Messenger. And whoever defies and disobeys Allah and His Messenger, then verily, Allah is Severe in punishment. [8:13]

Jazakallah Khair

Its just ask if you didn't do anything else but wear the hijab. It all depends on Allah how much he sees in you so try and maybe start wearing the hijab is the modesty of an Islam woman. Hijab is covering your self and your body from other men , to keep your beauty to yourself and not show it off, I think its a sin but im not forsure
