Islam is the second largest religion worldwide with around 1.5 billion devotees. And when it comes to clothing, they have varieties of colors, styles, and design that depend on their personal preferences, ethnicity and culture. However Muslim clothes are all about modesty. There are traditional designs and modern but all those are based on their standard requirements for Islamic dresses.
According to Ingrid Mattson, writer of Islamic Dress and Norms of Modesty, -In many Muslim societies across the world, women’s and men’s dress are similar in design and cut, but different in color, decoration and fabrics used.-
Styles and Colors:
Although Islam defines a code of modesty for their traditional wear, it does not specify a definite color, fabric and style. The collections of apparel reflect the wide diversity of their culture. Majority of them prefer earth-tone shades including brown, green, blue, gray, white and black while others prefer bright and pastel tones of dresses. Nevertheless, there is no particular meaning behind those colors. Some shades of their dresses are popular based on their local tradition and practices in certain parts of the globe.
Their clothing has different name throughout the world. This is the reason why a particular type of clothing has varied names in different places. Here are lines of Islamic clothing that are worn by both male and female Muslims.
