I’m curious how many of you wear them on a daily basis and where your located.
Ive started to think a bit about the overhead style of abaya and while I do consider it the most superior form of covering, I realize that they are not for everyone and especially the batwing styles can be a bit difficult to wear and can really stand out in certain places. But, I still, I would like to continue wearing them–atleast the sleeved styles once we return to the US in August-although really, Im unsure how feisable that will be considering we are moving to a…gasp! small town with a big University. Although I’m sure most of the students and people IN the town will be rather well educated and maybe well-traveled and open minded…Im not so sure about the people who live outside of the town. Hmmm…anyway, we’ll see how that goes.
anyway…so I’m just curious…I wanna get a bit of a discussion going about this (in comments…LOL)
If you wear them…how do you wear them and what style? What colors or fabrics do you prefer? Do you have any ‘tricks” for wearing them-like tie, elastic, gluegun (LOL!)…what did you think about them before you started to wear them and WHY do you wear them.
And lastly…ive started to see quite a few of these shorter style overheads around online-like calf length and they seem like they would be really, really awesome, esp when worn with a denim skirt or something. But, I donno.
