Hijab and Abaya differ in terms of fashion, as there is considerable difference between the two. Both of them are a part of Islamic clothing for women but there is a difference between these two garments. Hijab is the headscarf or a head covering worn by women to observe the standards of Islamic modesty whereas; Abaya is a long robe that covers the entire body of women and girls and is often worn on some piece of clothing. Fashion designing for both these garments differs. When an Abaya collection needs to be launched designers have to take care of everything including sleeves etc. Every year Abaya collection is launched for e.g. the collection if 2016-2017. Hijab is mostly worn by women on evening gowns and therefore online tutorials are available to help women regarding the way they can stylize their hijabs with their dresses. Women who wear hijab have to make sure that whether the color of hijab is coordinating with their dress or not whereas women who wear Abaya don’t have to worry about these things as the color of their Abaya’s is mostly black, thus hijab and Abaya differ in terms of fashion.
