Arabic Abaya is a long kaftan type dress worn by Muslim women who often pair it up with hijab. Abaya fulfills the Islamic purpose of covering ones body in front of males not belonging to their family. The concept of covering ones head and body so that it is not exposed is a part of Muslim religion. Women who are modest tend to wear dresses that are stylish yet they fulfill the concept of hijab. Many women follow various fashion trends which vary according to years for instance the trends of 2015-2016 would be different from that of 2016-2017. Moreover, with the evolution of fashion, hijab has been modified into something, which can be considered as fashionable; similarly the outlook of Abaya influences many new designs. For instance, jallabiya is the traditional Sudanese dress native to the Nile valley, and the traditional Muslim Abaya also inspires kaftan. Abaya is worn mostly in the Arab side of the world like Dubai. Many women in Middle East wear Abaya, and every other country or part of the world has designs influenced by the style of Abaya. Abaya is a part of Muslim clothing, yet they do look for new styles and designs in order to look different and fashionable. Many women search for online shops so that they can buy new dresses online. Many styles of Abaya are exclusive and are often custom made based on the preferences of the customer. Arabic Abaya is very much in fashion not only in its actual context but in terms of modifications as well that are added to the design of Arabic Abaya.
