Muslim women today are no longer restricted to wearing the abaya the traditional way only. The world of abaya fashion is changing rapidly, more than it ever has in the past. That is partly due to a lot of western designers showing an interest in the abaya. Due to their increased popularity, designers have realized that even modest clothing like an abaya can be very trendy and fashionable, and so they have started adding to their collections elegant and modern abaya designs.
The abaya can be worn elegantly and gracefully. Where in the past the abaya was mostly only available in simple designs and in black color, it is now available in every color you can think of. Muslim women are embracing this look with elegance and grace and are wearing abayas that bring out their personality. Even though the abaya is available in many colors, black still seems to be the most popular color, by both the women living in the East and the West. Maybe that is due to traditional and religious reasons. But it can’t be argued that no color can beat the slimming and graceful look like the color black whether that be an abaya or a dress.
Besides the abayas now available to buy in bold colors, they are also available in prints. The prints look great underneath jeans for a casual street look. Or for more formal look wear the printed abaya with contrasting plain color wide leg trousers and a tailored shirt or top.
The use of embellishments on abayas is another popular trend. An embellished abaya looks great for special occasions.
Experiment and be more creative in how you style your abaya with the rest of your wardrobe. To give you some inspiration and ideas scroll down to see some blogger looks.
