No matter how you spell it—abaya or abayah—Islamic long sleeve dresses are proving to be the trendiest traditions for modern Muslim women. Why else would design giants Dolce & Gabbana kick off the year with a line of mod abayas featuring polkadots, flowers and fruits? For the same reason Artizara (your online shop for modest clothing for women) offers playful printed abaya dresses…because these timeless numbers suit your 21st century lifestyle! No matter the occasion, this long and loose Lily maxi dress is designed to impress. Ever versatile, the fully-lined abaya comes with a removable waist tie so you can wear it belted, or not. Crafted in easy-care chiffon, the black and purple print includes flattering princess seams for shaping, a modest round neckline, on-seam pockets at the waist, and loose sleeves gathered into elastic cuffs. Just add a pair of strapped sandals and a smart scarf and you’re good to go!
Be ready to wow in this contemporary caftan with antique linear hand-beading and pretty pendant which mimics the Arabic letter “waw”. The band collar, button placket and cuff sleeves with roll tabs blend functionality with fashion while the fully-lined soft chiffon fabric is both comfortable and conveniently modest. In other words, there’s no need to layer! Best of all, this formal abaya is cut from a sleek crepe to evoke the richness of eras past—yet with a modern flair. If that’s not enough, the understated granite maxi dress comes with a coordinating soft chiffon scarf to ensure a stylish ensemble.
Bring out your sunny personality when you don this daffodil abaya. Perfectly flexible, the fully-lined maxi dress lets you feel relaxed and casual as well as feminine and formal since you can wear it either with or without the removable waist tie. Figure in the flattering princess seams for shaping and on-seam waist pockets for convenience and you’ve got a must-have fashion staple with modest round neckline and loose sleeves with gathered elastic cuffs. The modern multicolored print also expands your accessory options for a multitude of matching wraps.
Make a bold fashion statement in the vibrantly vogue Zakira with slimming lines of crochet lace along the princess seams. Crafted in soft stretchy crepe and lined for opacity, the comfortable yet chic abaya boasts a straight silhouette that’s bound to turn heads. In addition to offering a sweetheart neckline, rear invisible zipper and long cuffed sleeves with a single button closure, this maxi dress transitions from day into evening as easily as it does from traditional to trendy as it meets your evolving needs.
