Dubai Abaya Trends

Khaleejia said: I'd like to highlight some abaya trends that are very popular now (mainly for abaya wearing women outside of the Gulf) Theses trends are not exactly new, but it's now that they are worn commonly. Abayas like these can be found in almost every abaya shop be it a designer boutique in Dubai Mall or a small tailor shop in Ajman. If you go to any big shopping center  you are bound to see several women wearing such abayas.

- abayas with belts:

 abayas by Kanzi

abaya by Omsiyat

abaya by Arabesque

-abayas with a lot of lace (dantel):

- abayas with asymmetrical drapes, sleeves or decoration:

abayas by Omsiyat

- abayas with huge pieces of pretty bright fabric. Such abayas are for the daring, brave women, who don't mind to stand out as majority of women stick to more traditional at least in color abayas.

 abayas by Queen of Spades

 abayas by Geelato

-  plain black  abayas are also very popular and  worn commonly.  Plain abayas can look very elegant if worn with nice accessories, good posture and confidence.

(omg, I love abayas, could post pics endlessly..)

"Al Yahmoom" Screenshots

Khaleejia said:  "Al Yahmoom" is an Emirati drama TV series aired on Sama Dubai during Ramadan 2012. I took some screenshots of a pretty khaleeji actress of Syrian origin - Marwa Rateb.  I also took other screenshots that illustrate the differences in lifestyle of very rich families in Dubai and simple people in the village.

First, screenshots of Marwa and other wealthy ladies. Check out their style, abayas, make up, hair...


For comparison - dress and lifestyle of village women:

Differences in eating habbits: first rich urban and later simple families.

... and villagers:

 Differences in living conditions and home decoration:

... and simple people's houses:

Although, I hear it here and there that gamboo3a is not in style any more, many women still wear it. Few examples from the film: 


I hope you enjoyed the post!
