There was a time when wearing an abaya meant becoming invisible in a sea of black veiled women. That was in the 90s! Now, your abaya can be as pretty as your Sana Safinaz outfit. No joke. Wearing an abaya doesn’t always mean that you have to compromise on your style. As Sabeen Rabbani rightly puts, “There is no intention to catch anyone’s eye or to be attractive in a non halal way…just want all women who wear abayas to feel beautiful classy and happy.”
In order to do that, you must make make an informed decision. Don’t fall for the mass-made dreary abayas. Seek for newer, more stylish options, because if you opt to wear an abaya, you must wear it with a big smile and bucket loads of confidence.
Here are a few options from Modeste Abayas’ latest collection which is festive, fun, and bright!
Did you ever imagine an abaya could look this cool? This royal blue piece with floral embroidery is perfect for young ladies who are new to the abaya game and don’t mind commanding attention!
Next up is this black abaya with mustard florals and a little colour blocking decorating the hem. We’re totally digging the scarf decorated with pearls, aren’t you?
Here’s another trendy piece of abaya. From the shade (Ice blue) to the ivory pearls, this is as elegant as it gets. We’d suggest you pair it with a matching chiffon scarf.
Speaking of pastels, here’s another shade which will perk up your mood this winter.
One can never have enough of black abayas. They’re a wardrobe staple for ladies who wear Hijab and are perfect for a lunch, dinner, and even a majlis.
This monochrome lacey abaya is perfect for Fall and those night time soirees. You can add a Swarovski brooch to perk things up and if you wear it during the day, then a classy pair of sunglasses will make you go from meh to whoa in a second.
Colour blocking is all the rage for the past few seasons, and who says you can’t use it in abayas? We love how Sabeen Rabbani has played with different textures here, especially that pop of yellow!
Another trend which is going strong is the glitzy look. You can incorporate a little bit of glamour in your look by opting for a glimmering scarf as shown above.
