The Abaya was traditionally a long black clock garment that women wear over their usual clothes. This is worn so as to make the women look as simple as possible, and so that their figure remains hidden. Nowadays, we see women wearing extremely extravagant clothes, which are obviously extremely expensive. One of the reasons for an Abaya might be, to control the amount of money women might be willing to spend on their clothes, and since they all would be wearing the same kind of garment, would also ensure equality among them.
