Abaya: The Muslim Maxi Dress

A good Abaya can be your best friend, especially in the heat of the summer sun. However the Abaya fulfills many other purposes than being just a staple fashion piece.

Although Abayas come in an array of different colors and are available around the world, original abayas were all black Abayas, and in the Emirates and Saudi Arabia, they are mostly still black in color. The Abaya was originally a one piece garment that allowed the wearer to maintain complete modesty and respect for their body, however it also served a different purpose. Among communities, the uniformity of the Abaya allowed for class division to be ignored. With all women wearing the same style of clothes, there was very little to differentiate rich from poor; bringing more people together through their shared faith rather than driving them apart with hierarchy.

Nowadays, and especially in Western countries, the Abaya dress is a fashion symbol that blends culture and religion across many spaces. The Abaya and Jilbab (traditionally covering the head and hands also) are comfortable, breathable and fashionable, making for excellent summer wear and so many different styles means you can find one that’s perfect for any occasion.
