Saudi Arabian newspaper headline:  Classy and conservative: US First Lady Melania Trump praised for ‘elegantly respectful’ KSA look

According to Arab News that circulated a special English edition of their newspaper , the women are now imitating Melania’s abaya fashion:

The loose outfit almost resembled the traditional black abaya — a loose over-garment, essentially a robe-like dress — worn by Saudi women.
The simple black look was decorated with a chunky, chain-link necklace and statement metallic python waist belt from Saint Laurent.

Saudi women already began posting images of themselves wearing “Melania-style” abayas.

Jeddah-based Nahed Andijani, owner of Trendy Sketch PR, shared a picture of her abaya, which looks almost the same — all black with a golden rose in the middle.
“When I saw her arrival pictures wearing a modest outfit respecting our culture, I was like ‘this looks so much like my abaya!’ ” Andijani told Arab News. “She wore a golden belt, while I wore a golden rose but still look so much alike.”
Andijani expressed her excitement that she shares the same fashion taste, as the first lady has “a very high sense of fashion.”
