When you’re looking for beautiful modern abayas that you can repeatedly wear every day, it can be a challenge to pick one that’s unique but not too attention-grabbing. After all, modern abaya styles that are too out there will make it painfully obvious that you’re just recycling tired old looks day in and day out. To make sure that your elegant modern abaya is simple enough for casual daily wear and still fashionably fab, you have to invest in subtle details like unique sleeves or pockets that pop out.
Still at a complete loss? We’ve got you! It’s time to make room in your wardrobe for these four fashionable new abayas—they’ll definitely be your new closet faves when you’re done with this list!
1. Beautiful modern abayas with unique embroidery
The most beautiful modern abaya styles always have a certain “wow” factor to them—and no, you don’t need to invest in over-the-top designs that are too loud or too wild. Sometimes, you can still inject a pop of colour to an everyday outfit with simple coloured lining, or better yet, with ethnic floral designs!
This fun and fab Ethnic Black Floral Abaya features a kimono style that lets you wear it open or closed for the ultimate versatility. Carefully handmade, the vibrant embroidered details that line the cuffs and plackets can put all other modern abaya styles to shame! This pretty modern abaya is also made from high-quality Nida fabric, so you can be sure that it’s comfy as can be whether you’re just hanging out with your best buds on a quiet Saturday afternoon or running errands under the sweltering heat of the summer sun.

You can also style this fashionable new abaya as open or closed because of its concealed front buttons, so it’s your best bet when it’s a little chilly outside to use it as a layer on top of whatever you’re wearing underneath. It’s always a good idea to invest in pieces that are more versatile, so that you won’t have to break the bank each time you need to update your wardrobe.
2. Modern abaya styles with frilled pockets
If you’re not a fan of colourful lining, you can always focus on the pocket detail of your pretty modern abayas. This is also a fail-safe trick to use when you’re shopping online and you’re not sure about the tactile feel of the beautiful modern abayas styles you’re choosing from. With frilled pockets, there’s no question as to whether or not what the photos online show are accurate—there’s just no possible way you an overlook frills along the lining of the pockets, after all!
We’re talking about this Freya Abaya Royal Blue piece that features a minimalistic style—it may seem plain at first glance, but a closer look reveals cute and quirky frill details around the two front pockets. Made from high-quality and comfy thin crepe, it’s ideal for daily casual wear because it doesn’t try to draw too much attention to itself. The vibrant royal blue shade is enough to make you stand out from the crowd, and you can pretty much pair it with anything underneath, whether you’re feeling dainty in a dress or edgy and street in casual jeans.

3. Elegant modern abaya trends with unique sleeves
Speaking of details that stand out in just the right way, you can also add a level of depth and dimension to your beautiful modern abayas with sleeves that pack a punch in a single glance. With unique sleeves that speak volumes without saying too much, you can easily elevate your overall look without the need for any fancy accessories or expensive add-ons.
If you really want to breathe fresh new life into your pretty modern abaya for daily wear, opt for pieces that have checkered patterns rather than lace or embroidery. Checkered prints are perfect for casual everyday looks—they’re simple and easy to pair with anything, and they’re versatile enough to match with any other colour you’re wearing underneath.
Case in point: this Black Abaya with Light Beige Checkered Sleeves and Belt boasts of flared checkered sleeves inspired by Burberry, so it’s the perfect elegant modern abaya to flaunt when you’re feeling fancy but you don’t want to look like you’re heading to a prince’s ball. It also has a matching belt for a kimono style look—plus, a matching belt helps emphasize your waist to make your figure as flattering as possible no matter what the angle.

4. Fashionable new abayas with funky pockets
Yes, we know we already talked about detailed pockets as your go-to trick to level up your beautiful modern abaya styles—but hey, it’s such a nifty fashion hack, it needs to be emphasized twice. The thing about vivid pocket details is that you can still go for a semi-monochromatic romantic look no matter what the colour of your abaya may be, but the colours of the pockets also help to break up your look to keep it from being dull and uninteresting. After all, nobody wants to look boring when they’re repeating daily looks, right?
This Black Open Abaya with Colourful Pockets demonstrates that exact trend! The vibrant pockets attract the visual interest of whoever is looking without them being too tacky. It’s a definite closet fave that will make your everyday look funky and fresh even if you’re repeating the same styles! Just lounge around in denims for lazy days out, or class it up with killer stilettos when you’re feeling fierce and ready to conquer the world.

Who says that beautiful modern abayas are too obvious when they’re worn every single day? Knowing which details to highlight can mean the difference between ordinary and extraordinary, whether it’s something as simple as a frilled pocket or as classy as a lined cuff. It’s all about the confidence, after all. Just don’t forget to wash them—we know they’re your faves, but you need to get the grime off every so often too!
