Dubai Abayas are usually very conservative and cover the entire body. However, there are some modern and stylish Dubai Abaya styles that are becoming more popular.
What Is The Abaya?
The abaya is a simple, full length robe that is usually made from cotton or polyester. It is usually long enough to cover the entire body, and it has a high neckline and long sleeves.
In Dubai and the vast majority of the United Arab Emirates and Middle East, including Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, the most popular colour is a black abaya.
A popular Dubai Abaya style is the kaftan or caftan. This is a loose-fitting, flowing robe that is typically made from silk or cotton. It is often decorated with embroidery or lace, and it can be worn with or without a headscarf. It is also sometime called a butterfly abaya or farasha abaya – farasha is the Arabic word for butterfly. This refers to the wide loose sleeves which represent a the large span wings of a butterfly.
A variation of the kaftan abaya is the batwing abaya. Again, this refers to the sleeves of the abaya which are similar to a butterfly, but instead of having a loose flare, they narrow at the forearms and wrist.
Another popular Dubai Abaya style is the Open Abaya. As the name suggests, this is an open-fronted abaya which either has buttons or a zip to close the abaya, or sometimes it is fully open like a cape.
Hijab & Abaya Accessories
Many women in Dubai also choose to wear the hijab, or headscarf as this is the traditional way to cover modestly is Islam. There are many different styles of hijab, and each woman can choose the style that best suits her personality and lifestyle.
There are also many different styles of abaya accessories, such as headscarves, gloves, and belts. These accessories can help to enhance the look of an abaya, and they can also help to keep you warm in the winter months.
