Chiffon and silk are two fabrics for two extreme kinds of weather conditions and therefore the Abaya collections for these seasons would differ from one another. However, both chiffon and silk are mostly used for formal occasions like weddings etc. Designers introduce new styles and designs every year that are not only stylish but exclusive and modern as well, however; they still try to make sure that the Abaya is long in length with full sleeves and only hands are visible. Many Muslim women avoid silk hijabs or Abaya, since silk is quite revealing and does not go with their Islamic belief system. Many different colors are available in silk and chiffon. Designers make sure not to restrict them to color black especially when they are designing for weddings etc. Many designs of 2016-2017 collections are in silk and chiffon which makes their collection trendy. Chiffon and silk Abaya collections can be worn on any occasions like weddings, birthdays, engagements etc.
