Let's face it – abayas are a struggle in the winter because the typically-thin material can let all the cold in and you can't really walk out the house without a good few thermal layers!
Though, the thermals or the puffy jacket on top can end up making you a bit too warm – plus it slightly kills the vibe we're going for!
That's why I've been on the hunt for brands that offer thick-material abayas to cut out the need for layering, so you can keep it modest and chic without catching a chill.

Can we take a moment for these cuffed coats?! 👀
I've been a regular customer with this amazing company for a while now so I can personally vouch for just how comfy and versatile their pieces are!
TAC is upping their game this A/W season with their long-line cuffed coats and cotton abayas, keeping you super snug. I'd recommend looking into their classic, oversized cotton abayas. The luxurious statement pieces can be easily paired with your favourite accessories to spruce up the look!
Layla's Collection by TAC is also perfect to look for warm, modest attires. This collection offers a range of cloak-like abayas made from a thick-flowing fabric (and it comes with a slip dress – we love to see it.)

Zadina Abayas London - Autumn Collection
Zadina Abayas London have released their new, cosy collection just in time for Autumn – and we're loving it!
The mixed selection of jersey, silk and pleated closed abayas are the perfect staples to building your capsule wardrobe while keeping it classy.
Whether you're heading out for dinner with the girls, or just running a few errands in the day – be sure to pick up some statement pieces from this brand to save you time when getting ready.
It's good to note that these abayas may need one extra layer on top (like an open abaya) for when the temperature drops even lower, but overall this brand is a good way to go for those sunny Sept/Oct days! ⛅️
The go-to modest fashion brand for women everywhere! It wouldn't be a completed list without the pioneer, Modanisa.
Although they're typically known for their timeless, elegant summer dresses, Modanisa actually offer a lot when it comes to those warmer winter fits.
You can often find a range of material loose dresses or abayas by browsing the site, but it's always worth checking the material description so there's no nasty surprises upon arrival!
Whether it's fuzzy, long-line cardigans, flowy maxi dresses or quality abayas to keep you warm, Modanisa has it all.
(Note: sizing can be slightly different on these sites so I'd recommend sizing up if it's the first time you're buying from here.)
