There were times when I thought "What am I doing?? .......Why am I worried about what to wear?? I need to get there on time before its over"..then this anything but classy, expression, floats in my head...."Mother Teresa didn't worry about what to wear....she had to get stuff (a less classy word was in my head) done!" fortunately for Mother Theresa, she had a uniform.
Abayas are also ridiculously priced in SA and their cuts are definitely moving away from what an abaya is suppose to be in an aim to gain more clients (the point?), so I'll probably sew my own...Insha'Allah!
First determine what about the style or outfit stands out to you the most, it might be a statement necklace, a bag, makeup or shoes or the way a scarf is tied or its colour. This is what you could incorporate into your wardrobe instead of doing the whole outfit.
Try a turban style, and pastel colours (soft ice cream colours).
