Have fun experimenting with a number of this season’s must have trends, with our abaya online style guide to combining metallic, floral embroidery and stripes all into one extravagant look. We have paired a number of statement pieces with our silver sugar abaya, which are all fabulous in their own right, but when brought together create a look made up of layer upon layer of ‘wow’!
Our silver sugar abaya is the perfect base to building this outfit and gives a taste of the love for stripes and metallic seen this season. A lightweight, silky satin abaya with a black and pearlised white stripe pattern from the waist down, cuffs and necklines gives the effect of subtle shimmer. The fabulous fabric and elegant cut gives this gorgeous abaya a dress like appearance and makes it an amazing choice for lunch with the ladies or a special evening out.
We think a bomber jacket, the transitional piece of the moment, ticks the box as the perfect cover up for this abaya. We love how the black effect fabric of this jacket complements the material of the abaya beautifully, whilst the metallic floral embroidery adds another dimension to this outfit. Although this abaya is fabulous worn alone, take it to another level by pairing it with this cool yet feminine piece.
Bring the whole outfit together with metallic inspired accessories such as this silver metallic shimmer scarf. The silver thread detailing of the scarf mimics the stripe design of the abaya as well as adding another sprinkling of silver.
Go for varying shades of metallic hues to add interest and to really have fun with this trend. This gold, silver and black sequinned clutch with optional shoulder strap adds a touch of old school glamour to the outfit, but is updated by the metallic colourings. We also love how the colours complement the floral embroidery of the jacket.
These silvery heels are also another great choice for incorporating the metallic trend and we love how the shimmery stripes of the abaya look against these cute heels.
Finally, complete the look with a bit of silver arm candy, with this sparkly Swarovski bracelet. We love the crystals, we love the leaf effect design and we love how it brings out the floral components of this outfit.
