Dubai is the fashion hub of the Middle East. Fashionable women wear different styles of Abayas during different occasions, such as Ramadan, among other festivities. While a black Abaya remains a top choice for most women in Dubai, you can expect them to make more fashion-forward choices during the festivities.
We have come up with a list of modest fashion trends making a wave on the internet and in high-fashion social circles. If you want to be in style with your Abaya, consider adding some of these designs to your abaya collections.
Here are some stunning abaya trends you can expect in Dubai:
Pearl Embellished Abaya
Embellished Abaya with pearls is the newest fashion trend in towns. There are a variety of abaya designs with beads, crystals and other precious stones. Pearl-embellished Abayas started making a buzz in 2019, but it wasn’t until high fashion brands such as Prada and Gucci jumped on the trend that everyone started wanting to be part of the trends.
Pearl-studded Abayas have been in high demand and are one the main option for modest fashionistas attending events in Dubai. They are a classy and timeless addition to your closet.
Blush Pink is a soft hue that is one of the happiest colours. It leans towards a neutral colour and can be styled for a contemporary or natural look. While winter/ fall saw the rise of the velvet abaya’s popularity, ladies are now looking for a summer abaya with lighter tones.
While black remains the most popular colour of Abayas posted on Pinterest and Instagram, many of the abayas this year are also blush. Abayas come in a wide range of colours, and the pink hues come off as ultra-feminine and are an excellent choice for Ramadan and other festivities.
If you are a Dubai Trendsetter, the fringe trend is a must-have in your closet. A fringe is a tremendous fashion statement. It is made of loose feathers and threads that are typically attached to the sleeves of your Abaya. Sometimes they have also been placed on the edge or are cape-like at the back of the Abaya.
You can have a fringe abaya custom-made by your favourite designer, but many online shops have ready-made abayas with a fringe.
Many ladies find it very convenient to wear a belted abaya. A belt offers your Abaya a little more shape than the non-belted ones and allows more movement. The belt size and materials vary as well as the thickness.
The material of the Abaya plays an essential role in the type of belt you will choose from the Abaya. Some fabrics work well with a thin belt, while others work great with a thick belt. You can use your fashion sense to decide which works best for the day’s outfit.
In recent years high-end fashion brands like Dolce & Gabbana have made flamboyant printed Abaya collections. The collection made a lasting impact, but the new trend is veering towards the minimalistic and geometric modern prints on the abayas.
The minimal prints are stylish and make a lasting impression; you can comfortably wear them around your family during Ramadan festivities.
The Modern Silhouettes
Traditional abayas are not for everyone. Young women are veering off the traditional abaya look to a more modern one. The modern silhouettes come in various colours, unexpected cuts and fabrics.
Just like any other fashion trend, Abaya trends come and go. Therefore, it is essential to ensure that you choose an elegant design that will always stay in style. Remember, and it does not matter what the trend is; the best Abaya makes you feel beautiful inside and out.
