Asalam w 3alikom hope
Ramadan is going fine with u , as for me al7md allah is it ok .My dear sister Sara requested me in posting the way emaraati women they dress regarding ages and tradtions. So here is it a quick brief showing u the emaraaty code of dressing inshalla. ur
First of all we must put in mind that UAE is it a liberal islamic country which is it influenced by the multicultural communities living un Emirates ( the mixture of east and west ) .
The dress code is less formal for children, although adolescent girls would be advised to dress moderately in order to avoid attention. The youth dresses is more varied.It is often comprises colorful long dresses, or an embroderied tunic with trousers.
Also is very common the traditional dress called “muhawar” .
Both local men and local women are easily distinguished by the traditional dress, which is a common sight in the United Arab Emiraati. Men wear the long white Kandoora and headdress, while women wear the black ‘Abaya. Is it the tradition to wear abaya and kandoora. Many asked about kandoora thing, well bare in mind this was worn by our Rasool (saw) and even before Islam.
We should not forget the Hadith in which our Prophet said: " The best of ur garments r those which r white ; dress ur living ones in them and shroud the dead ones in them "
The local girls like their abaya dresses to impress! The ones thy don’t dress openly, they like to dress “chic” accessorizing their abayas with the huge rings and earings and any other type of jewelleris. The sunglasses are already an important daily life accessory . The important element is it the bag, the more expansive and brandish , the more in trend u are. They likes compliments and chatting about the latest trends of fashion.
And under abaya some of young prefer this :
Myself i never wore mini skirt under my abaya outside :P
“Burqa” or “ Batoola “ are two traditional items from long times which u can find today still being so much likely worn by the old women and very few young girls.Is it still a part of tradition that signify beauty.
"Fashion is eternal " i think remains the motto for Emirates :)
