2. New abaya designs with a handy belt
The latest abaya styles don’t need to be totally out of this world - you’ll be delighted to know that even just a simple belt will add a flourish to your overall vibe no matter what the design may be. Different abaya designs claiming to be at the top of the fashion game often resort to loud prints or unconventional cuts, but you don’t have to adhere to those latest trends for abaya if you’re hesitant about stepping out of your comfort zone. Modest fashion should be all about comfort and confidence, so why push it when you're not ready?
With that said, the simplest way you can keep up with the best abaya designs out there is to just throw on a belt or a matching sash around your waist! It not only breaks up the monotony of most plain abayas, but it also helps to accentuate your figure so that you can emphasize your waist without the need to reveal any skin. Who says you need to resort to body-hugging pieces to flatter your figure at every angle? A simple belt is a perfect way to make your good ol’ trusty abaya totally at par with current abaya styles.
For instance, this Black Tulle Open Abaya with Belt is perfectly fab and feminine with its black see-through tulle. You can wear this open abaya with anything underneath to suit your personal preference best, and the black corded tassel belt will do its job of flattering your silhouette, whether you’re wearing a casual outfit in jeans or complementing the latest abaya designs with a fancy dress underneath.
