Saudis no longer live like Chess board pieces where men wear white and women wear black. Saudi Thobes and Abayas have been upgraded to new and stylish trends, with different colors and fancy graphics… call them the Versace of Saudi clothes. Nowadays, stylish Thobes and Abayas are considered the normal outfit for everyday wear; as a matter of fact, people who still wear the old traditional Thobe and Abaya will be looked at as if they come from the past through a time machine.
It is well known that part of a Saudi woman’s addictions are top designer brands. You see them styling Louis Vuitton or Chanel Abayas. Now if you ask me, ” Do Louis Vuitton make Abayas as part of their clothing line?”. I am not sure, but everything is possible in Saudi. Other Saudis like to wear their Abayas with a lot of glitter, as if they fell inside a disco ball.
Saudi men compete with women when it comes to how stylish their traditional clothes are. From fancy graphics or embroidary to Thobes that make you ask, “Is it a man’s dress?”. In the end of the day, Thobes will be Thobes and Abayas will be Abayas no matter what.
