I’ve always had a thing for abayas and open bisht style abayas in the Muslamic sphere and that love intensified after moving to the Middle East. Something about the free-flowing easy-breezy vibe speaks to me and it’s just another fave!

You’ll know by now that I’ve partnered up with Aab Collection to show you a couple of their pieces which are now available online and in Debenhams (Middle East) – click here to peep the first look we showcased!

When the second Aab piece turned out to be a bisht, and a camel toned one at that, my inner Muslamic was super excited!

(cue excited face..!)

Aab is a modestwear clothing company based out of the UK (www.aabcollection.com) and their pieces can also be found in Debenhams (Middle East).

I present you the Escalera Bisht (here) , a beautiful piece which features a lovely thread embroidery on the front opening and flared sleeves.

Isn’t it beautiful?!

I’ve paired it with a plain black abaya underneath and the same Soft Nude Chiffon Silk Hijab (here) from the previous Aab look. I would totally wear this out to a hanging or to Friday prayers and it would easily entertain both. It doesn’t have a tie up or a closed fastening, but I’m down with that! If I wanted to close it I could easily take a black tie up from another abaya and it would get the job done, or even a piece of thick black ribbon if you haven’t got a tie up.

I gave it a go with the Aab Powder Blue Jumpsuit (didn’t take a photo unfortunately!) and the contrast of the blue and camel-toned looked stunning together! Looking forward to wearing this with a massive turban and denim to embody a street-style nomadic vibe kinda sorta maybe!
