Have you always fancied the latest abaya designs but never really knew where to start? Are you inexplicably drawn to the elegant appeal of the best abaya styles but have no clue how to give your wardrobe a complete makeover? It might seem intimidating to get on-board with a completely different abaya style if your closet has always been on the less conservative side, but the wonderful thing about top abaya designs is that they can easily fit any wardrobe—seamlessly and effortlessly!
No, you don’t need to imitate exactly what you find on the runway just to stay on-trend. From sophisticated special occasion wear to go-getting office attire, these new abaya designs will have you transitioning into the modest fashion revolution in no time.
1. Latest abaya designs in basic black
The newest abaya trends range from all kinds of bursts of colour to more down-to-earth, classic tones. The thing about modest wear is that you really can choose to stand out and blend in at the same time. If that sounds contradictory to you, it’s really all about the concept of modesty—you don’t want to attract the wrong kind of attention, but you can still turn heads the right way by making sure you look prim, proper, and trendy at the same time. Who says those things have to go up against each other, anyway?
While you can definitely keep up with the latest abaya designs in peaches and pinks, you can easily breeze into the trend with basic black, especially if you’re a newbie. The timelessness of black makes it easy as can be to fuse into your existing wardrobe—plus, black will really help you stick to the most conservative and traditional ideals of the new abaya trends.
Now, there are no limits to the number of ways you can rock your modest attire, but if you want to keep it simple, a plain black abaya will do the trick—and will do it quite nicely. If you are looking for abaya design ideas, opt for a piece that’s modeled after the classic trench coat to make sure it really does go with everything you already have in your closet. Of course, a gathered waist is a pretty little addition to your overall look too, just like this Black Sash Abaya.

2. Best abaya designs for work
One of the coolest things about the new abaya styles you can choose from is that they will always look respectable and elegant no matter what the style, and because of that innate quality, you can easily wear the latest abaya styles to work. Black pieces with subtle designs can keep things appropriate no matter what you need to do at the office, whether you’re prepping for a client meeting or gearing up for an important job interview for the first time.
It’s also important to wear modest attire when you’re at work because you don’t want to distract from the task at hand. Plus, if you’re going to be wearing that outfit from sun up to sun down, you’d want to feel as comfortable as possible, and modest clothes—because of their relaxed fits and appropriate coverage—do that for you effortlessly.

3. Top abaya styles with an open front
Aside from the latest styles of abayas themselves, women also want to make sure that they look good and feel good with what they’re wearing underneath. The top abaya designs are those that are flexible enough to be worn open or closed, which is why open front abayas are always at the top of the bestseller charts.
Why are open abayas so appealing to modest women everywhere? Because of how these trendiest abaya designs are made, they can either be used as extra layers over regular clothing—this is especially useful for when you have a not-so-conservative existing wardrobe and you want to convert your whole look into a more respectable one. It definitely fits any wardrobe, because you can just wear your old clothes, layer on an open front abaya, and you’re good to go. If it’s a little colder outside, these lovely pieces can keep you warm too!
