Abaya is a traditional dress of Muslim women. It is more like an overall that Muslim women wear all around the world.

It is traditionally black in colour and it is a free-flowing garment that is airy. Abaya looks iconic and represents religion and culture. Over a past few decades abaya has become a fashion statement as it comes in different colours, designs, fabrics, shapes and prints. But abaya should be not tight and above the ankles. Also, the abaya should not be of transparent fabric. Cotton fabric is mostly used for abayas as women of gulf countries wear abaya the most and the temperature is hot in these countries.
