The stylist Guide to wearing an Open Abaya

The most popular modest fashion trend for abayas and modesty online has been the Open Abaya design which is a kimono style abaya that is easy to wear and can be thrown over any casual or occasion specific outfits transcending the outfits from one style to another.

 

Open Abayas have been continuously paired with matching abaya belts to give a more A-line maxi dress style and adds shape to the abaya rather than the standard fit of the classic loose abaya bearing in mind abayas are designed to fit loosely, open abayas can be worn with the built-in belt to change up the design.

Using accessories such as belts can help add a feminine touch as it defines the waist line to the design of the abaya while still completing a modest look as the abaya is still fitted to be loose.

 

Any Open Abayas can be paired with different types of belts even if they don’t have a built-in belt, you can always take the initiative and add a rope belt or material belt for an extra touch in abaya fashion. 

 

Let’s reflect on sheer sleeves, don’t want to show them? You can always opt for the Plain closed abayas that also act as long sleeve slip dresses. The benefit of modest clothing is that you can always layer your pieces to create a statement look.

 

If we consider the reason why open abayas have had such an impact on abaya trends, it sometimes takes a lot of effort to decide on what to wear or what different outfit to wear under an abaya, with an open abaya you can easily wear a slip dress to wear underneath in simple colours such as navy, grey or cream which match with most colours, this allows a more relaxed fit and you can also leave the abaya open.
