Abaya in Fashion

Posted By: admin on March 24, 2010 in Fashion & Style, Uncategorized - Comments: Comments Off on Abaya in Fashion

In the whole world, all women even Non-Muslim women like to wear Abaya when they go outside. Abaya is a long shirt style made of thin or think stuff that looks like a graduation gown. Some Abaya cover the head also but in most designs, Abaya is just like a gown. Generally women cover their head with separate scarves. In some western countries, it is also used without covering head. They do not know that Muslim women are obliged to cover her head and face.

Once there was a time when you could see only black and simple Abaya but now it can be noticed that all Abaya are not simple and black in its specific style. These are in a lot of varieties and styles. Many have some sort of decorative trim on the sleeve, around the neck and at the front opening in long line style. Sometimes it is made of handmade contrasting fabric and sometimes it is done in embroidery form. Here are some designers that are decorating Abaya with crystal work. In some towns of non-Muslim countries where women wear Abaya just as fashion, they wear more fitted Abaya with a lot of cuts that is specifically made for fashion. They wear it just as a fashion but not with the purpose of veil. In some places of the Middle East, Abaya is also worn by male as well as women. In some Middle East countries, it is also worn as a culture by men. Male and female are obliged to wear it, like in Saudi Arabia and other Muslim countries.

For a new wearer, it is not easy to adjust with Abaya. They may drag the sleeve through the plat of food. While driving, they have to be very careful and keep away form the escalator. But it becomes easier to wear by the passage of time.

It is difficult for female without veil or Abaya to go outside and does the food ordering, do the price negotiations, handle payment for things, figure out the bus schedule and like these more public matters. But a woman in Abaya navigates all these matter confidently and can handle all kind of meetings. Abaya gives her a sense of security but it is not just a fashion outfit.

A few periods back, it was not easy to move with this sheltered getup in western places. Western people did not like it for its veil style and other things now this trend has been changed. Most of western countries women are also wearing Abaya as a part of fashion. They like to wear it in functions, occasions and in casual life. It is also available according to the season and trends in different colors to enhance one’s personality. It is in Dubai floral style, Middle Eastern style and much more like this.
