Humans are social creatures by nature, so it’s inevitable for you to scour the world for the perfect abaya and hijab styles out there. When you’re invited to an evening event every other week (or even every single week, for heavens’ sake), it can be a huge challenge to find the best hijab and abaya styles that won’t make you look like you’re repeating the same look over and over again. This dilemma is especially true for women who love to switch things up when it comes to different styles of abaya hijab here and there.
Here’s a quick tip from us from the get-go: if you stick to the timelessness of the colour black, you won’t have to worry about mixing and matching every single time. But how do you make the average black abaya look varied every time? This is where our handy guide comes in!
1. Abaya and hijab styles with pearl embellishments
Head covering styles for celebration can come in different wrap styles and colours. The important thing to remember is to keep the style simple, which is why having a black abaya is the perfect way to emphasize your abaya and hijab ideas. No matter what the colour of your hijab may be, a black abaya in the latest style will always work with it - all you have to do is to elevate the elegance and fancy factor of your piece with subtle pearl embellishments.
With a timeless piece such as this Pearl Abaya Ecru, you can wear your best abaya hijab however you want to and still look fashionable and fab. It comes with faux white pearls that can really make you glow as you glide through the hallways and the dance floor for any formal evening event. Who wouldn't want to be the Belle of the ball, after all? It also features comfortable and loose batwing sleeves that will instantly make you feel like royalty, proving that the best way to complement your hijab techniques is to level up your abaya just the same.
2. Abaya hijab ideas for celebration paired with pleats
A plain and single-coloured outfit can look stunning in itself when you know how to think outside of the box. A multi-coloured hijab scarf paired with a cute, comfy, and cheap abaya will no doubt look stunning from sun up to sun down. While there are many different ways to wear your best abaya and hijab, you can keep it plain and simple with an abaya that has ruffles or pleats for an extra layer of depth and dimension no matter where the party may be.
This Plica Pleated Abaya Dress in timeless black not only adds instant texture to your party get-up, but it also keeps what otherwise might be a plain and boring colour fun and interesting. The luxurious piece is perfect for pairing with your go-to hijab technique. With its inner layer that’s made from non-pleated lining, it can be the perfect choice for a chilly evening event when you need an extra layer or for festivities set during wintertime.
To top it all off, it has a flattering A-line cut in high-quality chiffon fabric plus a corded tassel belt so that you can emphasize your waist and flatter your figure as you mingle with other guests at the party. The concealed buttons in the front gives the illusion that it’s a single seamless piece, so it doesn’t distract from your unique hijab styles for celebration.
3. Best abaya and hijab for festivities with faux gemstones
While you can make your hijab styles more party-worthy by adding clips or brooches to your head piece or scarf, the fancy sequin work doesn’t have to be limited to your head gear. You can complement your different abaya hijab ideas that’s embellished with faux gems for instant sophistication.
For example, this Stones Abaya Black made from breathable Nida fabric is perfect for summer evening events and can really make you stand out from the rest of the guests. You can opt to make a statement not just with your hijab techniques but also with your stunning studded abaya. After all, when you’re attending an important celebration, why wouldn’t you want to look like a VIP?
4. How to style abaya and hijab: choose sleeves with embroidery
Why do you wear a hijab, and why do you wear an abaya?
