Are you falling short of options for trendy outfits?

Abaya is considered one of the modest Arabic western dresses, it is like a free-flowing loose robe pattern attire, used in everyday life. It covers the whole body from top to bottom, and only the hands, feet, and face are left uncovered. Since the day it was invented it was in plain black color. Moreover, to cover their head they wear hijab, which is in normal language a scarf to cover the head so that no hair is visible.  

In earlier ages covering women’s bodies was more about status and safety, rather than giving it religious discrimination. Later on, a new style was introduced in which the pattern was like men's tunics. It was given the name ‘Islamic abaya’ as it was closed from the front side and is easy to slip inside it, unlike the earlier ones. 

But slowly with time, the pattern has enhanced a lot, and now it is available in many different colors, and also designers have given it a new meaning. 

Although there are many types of Arabic dresses a few of them are listed as follows:

Let’s not get confused between a hijab and a burqa. The burqa is a garment that covers the whole body from head to toe, whereas, the hijab covers only the head. You can wear anything under it if you are planning to go out with your friends, wear any trendy clothing from jeans to the abaya. Later on, you can remove the burqa and flaunt yourself with the outfit.
