5 Timeless Abaya Genres

Abayas are chief content for the ultimate glam. Whether it’s black or any other color, when “Glam” is uttered, to me, Abayas cover it all. Abayas will rule the hearts of the modest fashionistas as long as fashion exists. It is an outfit that plays the most versatile role; be it on the red carpet or on the streets. Keeping that in mind, here is a round-up of the Abayas every closet should have.

  1. Cape Glam

    It all depends on the cuts and patterns following up with the trend. But since timeless gets more preference than trend, we can bring the Cape in the picture. Capes were a big trend since 2015. It is certainly a style favorite every fashionista should own. Let us not forget the Golden Globes this year, where majority of the celebrities kept up with Capes. Since modest fashion itself is timeless, merging capes with it sounds like a perfect idea. A single piece is enough to glam up your closet. You don’t need much accessories except for a Hijab along with it. Wrap it in a turban or in one wrap, and you’re good to show up in the Red Carpet of Modest Fashion!
