You might have read that title and thought, What? I don’t get it, an Abaya that’s see-through? What’s the point?
Well, the great thing about it, is that you can dress it up or down, and take it from modest to not-so-modest with what you wear underneath. So let’s say you’re going to a function where you’d like to dress a little more modestly. You want to keep yourself covered while still looking like a million bucks. Here’s how to do it- wear a black full sleeve, full length dress underneath your Abaya, that way people won’t even be able to tell that you’re outfit is actually see-through! Top it off with chunky rings, and a long necklace to peak out from underneath your hijab. Wear with a bold clutch, like this Alexander McQueen one below, and a sleek nude pump for that sophisticated feel.
Ok, now let’s say you’re attending a party where you don’t necessarily have to be covered or dressed super modestly. But you still want to rock out in your Songes “Graceful Gold” Abaya. You’re going to want to stick to dark pieces to wear underneath, because this Abaya really deserves to shine! Try a sparkly top and a skirt paired with bold pink pops of color in your shoes, accessories and clutch. Keep your earrings and rings delicate so they’re not competing with the rest of your look.
What do you think of see-through Abayas? Do you ever wear them, or would you? If so, how would you style them differently? I’d love to get more ideas on the subject!
