Islamic Fashion Abayas To Wear at Weddings
What is an abaya?
The Abaya is simply a long garment (outer dress or overgarment)that is supposed to cover most of a woman's body except for the face, hands and feet. The traditional significance of the abaya is to maintain a woman's modesty in fashion and clothing in keeping with Islamic decorum and rules on dressing.
The abaya is considered the national dress of Muslim women in Muslim countries in the Gulf.
Most of the traditional Abayas are in black color. Abayas are draped over the shoulders or head and can be worn with a niqab, which is a face veil to cover the face partially except for the eyes.
Elegant Islamic Fashion Abaya in Black
While many Muslim women from other countries love to dress in a myriad of colors when they step out of the house, the black abaya is strongly favored by Gulf Muslim women, perhaps due to strong cultural and historical influences.
If you would like to try on an abaya when attending the next wedding of a relative or a friend, here are some fabulous designs by a Dubai designer to inspire you. These graceful, feminine flowing outfits are very becoming.
