Dressing for an Elegant Occasion

  For me the best part of going to a more formal occasion is having the opportunity to wear a beautiful outfit. I guess I haven't outgrown dress up yet ;) . I think most of us like the opportunity to feel special and play princess for the day.  Some of you might be buzzing little socialites and have occasion after occasion to attend and some of you are probably more like me and have the occasional function to attend.  Either way it is nice to have a few items in your closet that will always come through for you when you have to dress up.  I love a beautiful  formal party gown but they can be very costly, impractical and difficult to wear in a modest fashion.  However, a well tailored abaya in a beautiful fabrication will serve as the little black dress of a modest wardrobe. The great thing about owning a more elegant or 'formal' abaya is that it can be worn to any occasion.  If the event you are attending is mixed company a beautiful abaya is perfect because you can totally be covered in a modest and Islamically appropriate way. Your abaya will also be equally as stunning as a beautiful outfit at a ladies only event.

  Timeless offers you an amazingly rich and lush look with its velvet bodice and composite silk skirt. I think it is hard to not feel elegant wearing velvet and silk together in the same amazing garment. The drape and flow of the skirt on this abaya give it the feel of an elegant ball gown. The great thing about this abaya is that you can dress it up for a very formal affair by adding a beautiful pair of heels, a lovely embellished clutch and a elegant hijab style with a crystal brooch. You can also wear it less formal for a nice dinner out by wearing a cute pair of ballet flats and a simple hijab style.






Crochet Dreams is another abaya that can go from a nice dinner out all the way to a formal event. The design is beautiful with a flowy chiffon skirt that absolutely floats around your body. What says feminine beauty more than lace?  Not much ;). . . and that is why the bodice is covered in beautiful tonal cotton lace. Also included with this abaya is a detachable flower corsage that can be attached on the bodice or used as a beautiful accent on your hijab. Going out for a nice dinner with the husband or family? Try adding a simple small belt to create more of a fun dress look like  Nabiila Bee did in her review of this abaya which you can see by clicking on the highlighted link.

Now I know some of you ladies out there are looking for a wow piece. If a real knock out of an abaya is what you are looking for then I am going to steer you to our Soft Lilac abaya. The embroidery lace at the waist and collar is absolutely stunning. The luxurious fall of this beautiful soft lilac chiffon will have all eyes on you. The belt detailing on this abaya ties in the back so you can wear this dress with more or less structure depending on your setting and your preferences. The gathered cuffs on this abaya add that final touch of feminine elegance. This dress is so striking that I even think it would be a great choice for a wedding dress at a simple Islamic wedding ceremony.  You could be the absolute vision of shining modest beauty. Large weddings are great but a simple ceremony in a beautiful abaya without the extravagant price tag is also a pretty great start to a new marriage.

. . . . and of course a beautifully embellished black abaya can carry you out and about anywhere. Stardust offers a little bit of sparkle and flair at the cuffs. Since this abaya comes with a matching shayla all the guess work of creating an outfit is taken away. This outfit is perfect and ready to go alone or with a little bit of jewelry added for that extra something.
