Abaya Street Style

By definition, an abaya is a loose, long robe, which is a very common garment for women in the Gulf and Middle East. Traditionally abayas are plain black, however within recent years, abayas have come in different colours decorated with beautiful colored embroidery, beading, gems, crystals and ribbons, making them to an eye-catching piece in the wardrobe of modern Arab women.

At Fashion Forward Season 6, I was really amazed by a number of beautiful traditional Arabic looks – all variations of abayas, plus adding a touch of Arabic culture to the modern outfit with a kaftan on top of the dresses or turban as a subtle headpiece. Here is a compilation of my favorite traditional and less traditional abayas styled in sophisticated way.
