Chiffon Kaftans Over Abayas – The Latest Trend

In the Middle Eastern countries where abayas are the standard outfits worn at all times by the women, fashion designers are always working hard to come up with ideas which will set their abayas apart from the ordinary run of the mill ones worn by all. Based on the demands of their niche market, the high end designers create long and flowing abayas in expensive fabrics with embellishments and cuts to enhance the beauty of the wearer. The latest trend seen in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern countries are chiffon kaftans worn over fashionable abayas.

These kaftans are usually made of black chiffon and are cut in a way to create an extravagant and fluid look. They are further enhanced with beautiful and intricate beadwork or Swarovski crystal work done in large motifs at the back, to create a look of pure elegance. However they can be custom made in other colours as well to coordinate with any coloured abayas.

The chiffon kaftans when worn over silken abayas create a look of mystique and give the wearer and air of charisma. However, they can also be worn with cotton ones depending on the weather they are worn in. Although most women choose to wear the same coloured kaftan as the abaya, but contrasting colours can also be used to create a unique and exclusive look.

Black and other dark coloured kaftans such as navy blue, red and bronze can be worn over abayas to give them a more formal look particularly when attending weddings and other evening parties. In order to create an added layer of sheer elegance during daytime events these chiffon add-ons can be worn in light colours such as off white, pink and lemon yellow. Green and blue coloured kaftans can be used for all events by selecting hues which not only compliment your skin tone but also is suitable for the tie of the day they are going to be worn.

So ladies head out to your dress designer and purchase the exquisite and gorgeous chiffon crafted kaftans to wear to the next event which you will be attending. Not only will everyone admire the sheer fabric intricately worked on, but will also be able to admire the stunning abaya underneath it. The latest trend is here to stay and women all over the Muslim world are taking advantage of this distinctive new style to wear and flaunt their outfits.
