Abayas have made the A-list of the top wearable, as well as fashionable, items this Ramadan season. They’re perfectly suitable for a range of activities; from going to taraweeh prayers and sohour outings to receiving guests at home. Many women these days are interested in modernising their abayas and are looking for different accessories, fabrics, and cuts for a stylish and elegant abaya. Here are a few ideas for accessories that will help you look stunning in your dressed-up abaya: 

Metallic, gold and silver belts look great on black abayas. If your abaya has a colourful design or embroidery, you can also choose the belt color in the same colour of the design on your abaya.

To add a pop of colour to your plain abaya that has no embellishments or complicated details, pair it with a bright, chunky necklace and dress it up for outings.

Top off your look with a gypsy-style, extra-large chandelier, long and narrow or covered by crystal icing earrings if your abaya is overly embellished, with too many details and colours.
