Abaya also known as Jalabiya, has become a fashion statement and a must-have in everyone’s closet but these Abaya style tips you’re about to read will take your fashion game up a notch.
Here are our Top 5 Abaya Style Tips that will give you the most fashionable yet modest looks!
Tip #1 The Perfect Length
Remember that Abayas are measured in Length, hence the sizing options are not the standard S, M & L, so save yourself from having your abaya draping under your feet! It is never a good look to have the Abaya running too low along the floor or even when the Abaya lies too high!
The best way to make sure you have the best look is to try and get the abaya to sit around the ankles, aim to do this by measuring from the shoulder down to the ankle, a little below this is completely fine.
Tip #2 Flattering Fit
To get this right you need to choose something that flows rather than sticks! Why go for a Slim Fit that may stick to you when you can go for a Regular Fit Abaya that can be tied at the waist to keep the outfit modest, yet stylish at the same time!
Tip #3 The Right Sleeves
This is a major decider no matter how perfect you get the length and the fit, getting the sleeves right is like the icing on the cake! If you go for a specially designed sleeved Abaya, you are not going to require the same fitting guidelines of the regular but as a main rule of thumb, the Abaya or eve Dress should end around the wrist area.
Tip #4 Material
This can be a huge factor, especially when you are choosing whether to go for a look that flatters your shape. Choose materials that don’t just look good but feel comfortable also, this will make for that Islamic Clothing friendly outfit you love to wear.
Tip #5 Weather
Now you can’t dictate the weather but you can have the Perfect outfit for the weather you are faced with! You should choose the best material to suit the requirements the weather gives you. Keep yourself looking stylish without the need to overheat in the Sun, by going for a nice lightweight option. In the Cold, you can always choose an Abaya that is thicker and suits your functionality needs.
