If there’s one staple that we can’t give up on and we will never have enough of, it’s the black abaya. This essential garment in our wardrobe can be worn on a casual day with your friends as well as on a fancy dinner night out, it’s up to you.


While many call the black abaya “classic”, abaya design houses and labels proved that it can be modern, trendy, eye-catching, fierce and stylish, and it all depends on the styling tricks you can invest in for your next black abaya look.


Feathers, crystals and geometric forms are among our favorite embroideries, because they always add a glamour touch without looking like you made too much effort, in addition to being among the trendiest details of the season. When it comes to textiles, chiffon and tulle always come first especially if you’re opting for a classy and elegant style for a night out or for a work lunch.


If you keep scrolling, you’ll find some of our favorite abaya picks, modern and modest and everything in between, which we spotted over Instagram, and which you can shop with only one click.
