The holy month of Ramadan is upon us and as we look forward to another Eid al-Fitr you might need some fashion inspiration for this year’s celebration.
If your wardrobe is looking a bit tired for this year’s Ramadan, we’ve brought together some of the hottest summer trends to try out, with modesty in mind. The popularity of modest fashion has made it even easier than before to shop for the perfect outfit.
The Modern Abaya
Traditional and potentially the most Islamic piece of clothing in a Muslim woman’s wardrobe, the abaya is an iconic and crucial part of Muslim culture and identity.
However, on Eid, the abaya becomes something different from the black garb worn day to day. During this time, it becomes the most versatile garment, coming in every colour and fabric you can think of.
All that glitters
Eid is the time to bring out as much sparkle and glamour as humanly possible, and glittered gowns are taking the spotlight.
Sequins and metallics are a reoccurring trend and a popular choice for any party or family gathering during Eid, which means there are many options to choose from. Whether you’re penny pinching or splashing some serious cash, high-street and high-end stores have great interpretations of the style.
Whether you’re looking to invest in a show-stopping dress or go the more practical route, you can count on one thing for sure there are many, many options. Here are my top picks…
The sun dress
This year, we’re once again blessed with a Ramadan and Eid during the summer. With sunny weather comes seasonal collections filled with maxi and summer dresses.
Both affordable and luxury retailers have constant rotations of classic summer dress silhouettes. It’s not only the biggest summer essential but a great piece for the modest dresser.
Get a little matchy matchy…
Co-ords and matching sets have been having a serious moment.
You can’t scroll through your Instagram feed without seeing at least one or two people wearing a suit styled outfit, making formal attire accessible and comfortable.
With a variety of colours, fits and twists on tailored style, there’s an option to suit every preference and body shape.
Almost every store is carrying a collection based on the trend, and with good reason. These pieces instantly give off a chic and put together vibe with minimal effort. A good top and the bottom combo can make it look like as if you spent hours styling yourself when in reality it’s a 10-minute job (if not less).
That’s a wrap on this breakdown of the best trends for the Eid summer 2018.
Good luck to everyone fasting this year, Inshallah we all get to celebrate Eid in June with our loved ones. We at Style of the City wish all our Muslim readers a blessed month. Eid Mubarak everyone.
