Modesty doesn’t have to be bland. The modern-day Muslim fashionista has a lot of options to choose from. You can add many pieces to your wardrobe to make a fashion statement with a flawless look. Whether looking for a casual or formal look, most trends will allow you to show off your style while remaining modest.
Here is a look at some the trends an Arab lady should look out for:
The mantueau has been among the trendiest clothing items in modest fashion over the past few years. It is an excellent addition to your closet, especially if you are headed for winter. A mantueu is a coat in different colours and cuts from knee-length, straight and sometimes longer.
It comes in traditional colours, and you can choose the perfect colour and length based on your preference and how you would like to style it. It goes very well with pants and long Abayas when it’s cold.
The Ikat Prints
This is the perfect trend for anyone who wants to style prints modernly. Ikat Prints are traditional Indonesian-inspired prints. The print can often be found in various clothing items, including scarves, dresses and sometimes shoes.
Harem pants are popular because they are the perfect combination of style and comfort. They are also very simple to style. These pants are baggy with an elastic waistband that works great for many body types.
They are also a great addition to your chic outfit for casual and official occasions. The best part about Harem pants is that they come in many colours and prints. It is hard not to find something that suits your fashion sense.
Abayas are the perfect addition to your closet for a chic and elegant style. They come in various colours and materials, including cotton, silk, and satin. Abayas cover your body from head to toe and are among the most popular pieces in modest fashion. You can easily style the perfect outwear with the perfect jewellery and shoes.
They are great for attending an event or performing your day-to-day activities. You can also wear one over your usual clothing or however you would like, but an Abaya will instantly change your image.
Silver jewellery is trendy with Arab women because it is subtle and elegant. The best part is that you can also layer the jewellery and wear multiple necklaces simultaneously. You can also add some bling to your outfit by wearing rings and bracelets.
The choker trend started in the 90s but recently made a comeback after a few celebrities, such as Bella Hadid, were spotted wearing one during their runway shows. A choker is a perfect addition to your look when you want to look edgy while remaining modest.
Embellished tops have been in fashion for several years but have only recently become popular with Muslim women. The tops are often made of stars and brooches attached to the different dresses and tops. This trend has become famous thanks to celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Gigi Hadid.
Statement sleeves are among of the biggest trends this year. The unique design on the sleeves makes ladies stand out while making a fashion statement. The statement sleeves can be anything you have seen or a new design.
If you want to make a statement while showing off your style, this is a great trend to try out this year during your next outing with your friends or family.
A maxi dress is the perfect fashion statement for modest women. Maxi dresses come in different designs and patterns as well as varying lengths, making them trendier because you get to choose one that fits your personal style best. They are often worn on their own, but if you want extra coverage, you can wear them with harem pants.
If you are planning to add fashion trends to your wardrobe, try experimenting with different styles to learn which suits you best. If you are planning to accessorize or add statement jewellery to your outfit, experiment with different types till you get them right.
