Celebrate the occasion of Eid in style
Earlier this June marked the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan, a time of intense prayer, dawn-to-dusk fasting and nightly feasts. However, perhaps most excitingly, this signifies that the joyous festival of Eid is fast approaching. Calling for glamorous clothes, delectable dishes and all-around revelry, the day indeed marks a time for celebration for everyone!
“The perfect opportunity to splurge extravagantly on ethnic wear presents itself as women grab their chance to go all-out and hit the stores without any inhibition, dressing to impress in Indo-western and traditional wear alike.”
Comfortable yet chic Kurtas
Because of the lingering summer heat, you may prefer to adorn softer color palettes to maintain a casual and summery vibe. Many women often opt for comfortable fabrics like cotton that don’t restrict them as they gather for prayer or visit friends and family throughout the day.
The styles to wear range from kurta churidars and salwar kameez to palazzo pants and bell-bottomed leggings. These outfit choices represent the perfect combination of comfort and chic, managing to allow easy and unrestricted movement while still paying respect to the occasion. However, always remember that you can accessorise with a pair of statement earrings to provide a sharp edge to the outfit if you’re worried about keeping it too simple.
Stylish and sophisticated Anarkalis
On the other hand, if you’re looking for something slightly more stylish and sophisticated, you might want to consider either an anarkali or an embellished kurta with appliqué work. These can instantly make you stand out in a crowd and add a royal elegance to your entire ensemble. They are perfect for entertaining guests at home during the day or even wearing out to Iftaar parties during the night time. In order to make even more of an impression, ensure your choice of color is either a darker shade like midnight blue or a bright hue like crimson rather than a pastel tone like lilac. Add a net dupatta to this get-up to simply push it over the edge. To achieve a similar refined look in a different style, you may want to contemplate pairing a brocade blouse and a long jacket.
Timeless in Traditional Sarees
With some of the biggest celebrations being hosted on this propitious day, most people frequent multiple parties during the night. As a result, some women prefer going all out and donning traditional saris. Generally associated with regal undertones, these saris automatically lend finesse and panache to the wearer. These saris can either be pure satin or lycra and have velvet vests. They tend to be either heavily embroidered or embellished and are the main contributors of the glitz and the glam on this auspicious evening, elegantly emphasising the genuine timelessness of this classic look.
So go ahead, take your pick and turn up the glitz and glam of the occasion! We’d love to know how you’re styling your look for the celebration, tell us in the comments below.
