With Eid-ul-Adha 2016 just around the corner, if you haven’t already decided on your outfit then you definitely need to start looking for some inspirational ideas right now. So here are five of our favourite looks that you can try this Eid.
Tunics are a Must Have
Considering the fact that for most of us, this is going to be a pretty hot Eid, one of the best options is to go for a flowy tunic. Tunics are really trending these days all around the world and they truly deserve all this attention. They’re comfortable and flowy, so you can wear them all day long. If you’re planning on hosting lunch or dinner on Eid, then they’re perfect as you can easily work and move around in them without the hassle that you face with fancy outfits.
Have a look at this beautiful blue pleated tunic which you can wear on Eid with some nice accessories and a fancy hijab to give it more of a formal look. The best part is that once you’re done with Eid, you won’t have to keep waiting for another formal occasion to wear it again as this can also easily be worn for work or casual wear, simply by styling it down a notch.
The Little Black Dress
We’ve already discussed what you should wear when hosting on Eid, so now let’s talk about what to wear when you’re going out on Eid. Nothing can really beat a black dress when you’re going for an Eid dinner. If you’re looking for runway style inspiration, then the recent LAKME fashion week is full of some great ideas, here are two amazing black dresses from the event.
You can easily turn a dress like this into something more towards typical Muslim wear. Simply put on plain tights or trousers with the dress to cover your legs. If you want sleeves, then you can either have them stitched to the outfit or just wear a tank top, tee or camisole under it. This way you’ll have a dress that’s both modest and fashionable.
The Floral Effect
For day-wear this Eid, give this front open tunic with floral effect a try at the Eid brunch. It’s simple, elegant and yet so appealing. Moreover, its design is similar to that of an abaya so it really gives off the Islamic dress vibes which just makes you fall in love with it. The colour is perfect for this season and the palmiye style gives it an incredibly fresh feeling. Since brunches are all about looking casual yet chic, this would be an ideal choice.
Go Desi with a Modern Twist
Eid-al-Adha is a religious festival that’s all about traditions, so there’s no better occasion than this to go traditional and flaunt some desi swag in a shalwar kameez. But why not give this traditional outfit a more modern twist? Have a look at this shalwar, it has been given a number of different names such as tulip shalwar, tulip pants and lately the “dhoti shalwar.” No matter what you call them, one thing is for sure that they look pretty hot. For the complete desi look, wear it with an embroidered shirt, jhumka style earrings and an embellished vest on Eid.
The Royal Look
Last but not the least; we have the royal look for Eid. Wear a nice pastel coloured hijab with a fancy embroidered or embellished blouse. You can also go for a blouse made of net or lace for some extra drama.
No matter which of these outfits you choose, do pay attention to the little details which are just meant for Eid. Yes, we’re talking about the mehndi and bangles which really bring around the Eid energy. Other than that, make sure you find a nice nail paint and shoes to go with your beautiful Eid outfit and don’t leave these things for the last day. Eid Mubarak to you all!
