Embellished abaya jackets
Next up on the luxury modest fashion runway are our embellished abaya jackets, which also come in a variety of sumptuous fabrics such as velvet, chiffon and cotton.
Effortlessly versatile and elegant, an embellished abaya jacket brings luxury and flexibility to any outfit.
For a classic look, slip it on over a plain abaya or inner slip dress as a sophisticated finishing layer. Alternatively, go for a contemporary look by pairing it with a top and trousers combination.
However you choose to wear your abaya jacket, you’ll find options galore when it comes to embellishments, helping you find just the right design to suit your style.
- Lace: timeless and elegant, lace embellished abaya jackets instantly add a touch of class to your wardrobe. From hand-cut detailing on open farasha butterfly sleeves to sewn-on lace cuffs, you’ll find lace design options for all occasions
- Sheer: sheer fabric sleeves and detailing add layers and depth to your outfits, taking them from an everyday open abaya jacket to an embellished signature look
- Gemstones: from diamantes to colourful gems, hand-stitched stone detailing on a sparkly embellished abaya jacket will give ordinary outfits a touch of glamour whatever they’re paired with
- Beads: from tiny metallic coloured beading on cuffs and hems to intricate patterns, many of our embellished abaya jackets feature delicate beading that’s been sewn on by hand for added care
- Appliques: for understated luxury, any one of our abaya jackets will be perfect - featuring expert applique needlework with pretty flowers, stars and other patterns
Last, let’s take a closer look at our floaty modest embellished capes, which are the ideal option if you’re looking for a statement-making piece.
Featuring slits for arms rather than traditional sleeves, embellished capes are worn loosely over other garments such as inner slip dresses and trousers.
Available in various fabrics, including velvet, nidha and chiffon, their long, flowing profile and stunning detailing gives them a graceful charm.
Some of the most popular cape embellishments include:
- Jewels: typically found along cuffs, shoulders and hemlines, shimmering stones in an array of colours beautifully enhance the glamour of these capes
- Beads: similar to gemstones, many of our embellished capes come with pretty beading that’s been hand-stitched to create striking patterns and designs
- Tassels: from shiny fringe detailing to belt tassels, a touch of loose, hanging threads brings more depth and detailing to luxury cape designs
