Sneakers with an abaya

If you're like me and have both long and short dresses in your wardrobe, you may have had a hard time matching them with the right pair of shoes. An abaya is a type of dress that covers most or all of your body (except for your face and hands). Here are some good reasons to wear black, shiny shoes with an abaya. Wearing black sneakers or sneakers with an abaya is kind of challenging, you either love it or hate it. It all depends on your personal preferences and what you are comfortable with despite the fact that it is not supposed to be worn with this kind of clothing in Islam. Wearing sneakers with an abaya seems like a risky combination. It isn't. If you have the right kind of sneakers, they can be versatile and fashionable for any abaya style.

Ballet flats with an abaya

Is it possible to wear ballet flats with an abaya? Is it even a thing? Yes, I'm here to talk about wearing ballet flats with an abaya! You can find ballet flats in almost any city (secretly though, in my experience with Saudi Arabia), and sometimes it can be a relief from wearing high heels. Ballet flats are comfortable, easy to walk in, and very convenient for shopping!

Heels with an abaya

I love wearing heels with an abaya (duh, who doesn't?!) for the simple fact that I feel like they take me more seriously. The outfits I wear in heels are so different and can sometimes take hours to put together and match, but it's totally worth it. I don't feel like an ordinary woman when I wear heels with my abaya, I feel like a lady. When I wear heels, people treat me with respect and courtesy because they think "wow, she must be important or something".
