In the previous years, women could face detention if she does not adhere to the policy of wearing abaya in public.    The traditional abaya worn by women is black in color. But in the last few years, women started wearing colored abayas aside from the traditional black. This became controversial as some regard this as immodest and it brings attention to women- when women in Jeddah and Eastern Province started wearing colorful abaya, women in Riyadh still tried to follow and wear traditional black abaya.        Riyadh has been known as the most conservative city in Saudi Arabia, where, aside from abaya, women are also required to cover their head with a scarf or hijab. However, in some relaxed province like Jeddah and the Eastern Province they are more lenient when it comes to wearing hijab. These provinces also introduced colored abaya in the past few years, but is criticized in Riyadh- as colorful abaya brings attention to oneself.
