Fashion in Islam is heavily influenced by the Muslim religion. The traditional garment for Muslim women is the abaya, a floor-length cloak designed to completely cover the body. This is usually worn with a hijab (a traditional headscarf designed to cover the hair), or a niqab (a veil which covers the entirety of the face, leaving only the eyes exposed). Modern muslim women now have the option to wear colourful shawls as an alternative to hijab, whereas maxi dresses and flowing harem pants are regularly worn in place of the abaya to add a fashionable twist to an outfit whilst ensuring that the body is completely covered.
