Islam says that women should dress in a very special way. This dress code applies to women and adolescent girls, but not to children. Women who travel to Islamic countries should also wear such dress. Some of the Islamic dresses for women are following.
Abaya:
It is a long flowing outer garment worn over all other clothing. Traditional Abaya is black and may be either a large square of fabric draped from the shoulders or head or a long caftan. The Abaya covers the whole body except the face, feet, and hands. It can be worn with Niqab, a face veil covering all but the eyes. Some women choose to wear long black gloves, so that their hands are covered as well.
Jilbab:
Jilbab is a garment that may be worn like a dress, usually with trousers underneath. The term jilbab is the plural of the word jilaabah which refers to any long and loose-fit coat or garment worn by some Islamic women.
The modern Jilbab covers the entire body, except hands, face, and head. The head and neck are then covered by a scarf. Some women will also cover their hands and face beside wearing Jilbab
Salwar Kameez:
Salwar Kameez is a garment origination from the Indian subcontinent. It literally translates as "trousers suit" and is comprised of a long shirt, trousers, and dupatta. It is usually very colorful/bright and sometime embroidered.
Dupatta:
Dupatta is a long rectangular scarf usually worn over the shoulders in front of the neck, or in whatever way you prefer. Sometimes it is also used to cover women’s head.
Hijab:
Hijab is a head covering dress worn by many women having faith in Islam. Traditionally, it is a squared shaped cloth folded in a triangular shape. But sometime it may be in rectangular shape.
Niqab:
Niqab is a veil to cover the face while keeping the eyes and forehead open.
We carry a wide selection of styles and colors in our Islamic dress for women. These dressing styles are contemporary and in high demand. Islamic dresses are usually long dresses with a lot of embroidery.
Islamic dress for women is based on a principle of female modesty. Customs of the time, place, and social class of the woman influence what she wears. Some options include Hijab or modest loose clothing and a scarf over the head and Burka which is a complete covering for head, face and body.
