Jeddah: (Wo)MEN in Black

Women shoppers at the Red Sea Mall are all dressed in black cloaks called abayas.  In Jeddah one is likely to see a few women wearing different colored abayas, although the vast majority still wear black. Saudi women generally cover their hair with scarves called hijab, and many also cover their faces with veils called niqab.

I guess they are not shopping at the mall to check out the latest styles and fashions in abayas.
