Modest Summer Outfits: Our New Summer Collection

At Arabian Nites, this season’s modest summer outfits are all about experimentation.

With high street summer style often not being suitable for dressing modestly, we wanted to create a luxe but wearable collection of modest summer outfits to suit different styles but with lifestyle of the modern, multitasking, modest-dressing woman in mind.

The result is five, carefully curated edits with a focus on sensory experiences; the smoothness of satin, the delicacy of lace, the glide of a silk skirt. Each collection builds on classic shapes and cuts, contrasting with bold but wearable prints and romantic hues in shades of hazy summer sunsets.

With each new collection taking you from every day wear to your next vacation, we pay tribute to dreamlike, nostalgic summers filled with sunsets and romance with long, lightweight jackets and flowing dresses and abayas.

The objective? Bringing minimal, elegant pieces into your wardrobe to transform your summer look with one or two key pieces.

The Kyoto Blossom Collection

Marrying the gentle florals of oriental botanical culture with fluid fabrics and design traditions of the Islamic world, the Kyoto Blossom Collection takes inspiration from the dreamlike cherry blossoms of Japan, the opulence of traditional eastern architecture and hazy summer skies.

The Vacation Picks:

Kyoto Blossom Satin Sheen Dress

Wear our signature piece for easy transitional dressing by casually draping over a minimal ensemble in the daytime, or dressing up a simple abaya for an effortless, put-together evening or summer occasion style.

Azure Back Heritage Design Jacket

We designed this to be the perfect daytime cover up. This jacket brings a touch of the traditional into your casual vacation wardrobe, with Islamic heritage-inspired lattice detail to maintain air flow while giving you breathable cover.

The Alhambra Collection

Taking notes from the muted tones and majestic opulence of Moorish architecture, our Alhambra Collection is all about clean lines and dramatic details.

Our pieces contrast bold prints against luxe fabrics and uncomplicated silhouettes to make an enigmatic addition to your summer wardrobe.

The Vacation Picks:

Alhambra Satin Sheen Abaya

With no layering or extra styling required, this bold yet uncomplicated abaya is a super lightweight, one-piece outfit perfect for easy styling in soaring temperatures. Cool to the touch, the smooth silk glides gently against the skin in warmer temperatures without sticking or creasing.

Breeze Tuscany Scarf

Inspired by the heat of Tuscan summer, we designed this scarf to be a must-have piece for a minimal vacation selection. A fresh, muted coral; and ready to wear with a variety of this season’s on-trend pastels.

Pink Meadow

For summertime dressing as an ode to nostalgic romance and wistful make-believe; our Pink Meadow collection is designed to bring uncomplicated femininity and romance to your look.

Each piece is made from petal-soft fabrics in plush pink hues and blends elements of Islamic cultural heritage with traditional, wearable Japanese-style botanical prints.

The Vacation Pick:

Pink Meadow Satin Sheen Jacket

Inspired by the traditional botany of Japan; the cherry-blossom-pink silk works perfectly worn open and draped over a daytime ensemble. Wear closed in the evening for effortless glamour.

Andalusia Collection

Inspired by the brooding landscapes and thriving cultures of historic Spain, let memories of summers past linger for a while longer with sweeping skirts and uncomplicated silhouettes in plumes of plum and muted lilacs.

A departure from the on-trend pastels commonly seen around summer, our Andalusia Collection takes an edgier, more glamorous interpretation of summertime dressing with vibrant tones taking centre stage. 

The Vacation Picks:

Iranian Mosaic Satin Sheen Abaya

Our favourite for bold vacation dressing, bring a touch of Mediterranean glam to your evening look by pairing with a chiffon scarf and red lips as a minimal yet put-together ensemble.

Lilac Back Heritage Design Jacket

A muted lilac to bring a more wearable edge to your daytime look, wear open for lightweight cover over a casual, everyday abaya or dress.
