Eid – An important and vibrant festival of Muslims is celebrated with much fanfare after a month long wait. A festival that is synonymous with mouth-watering food is all the more looked forward by families and friends, as it is a day of celebration, a day of mingling with loved ones and a day when everyone gets to wear and flaunt their new clothes and jewellery.
If you are looking forward to kick start the festive occasion with your friends and/or family, while also wanting to make a stylish impression on them, then continue reading forward. Among the hordes of designer clothes and tailored attires, girls and ladies who are looking for something traditional yet want a twist in their attire for a daytime house gathering or night party, can find something elegant, ethnic yet fashionable for sure.
- Anarkalis – One of the season’s favourites and readily available under various designer labels, flowy and floor-length anarkalis are a hit among ladies both Muslims and non-Muslims. Though anarkali suits are highly popular for being accessible in various materials and colours, vibrant colours and laced/embroidered/glittery stone studded suits are highly recommended to honour the spirit of the festival.
Another tip that will be handy while carrying these amazing outfits is to avoid chunky neckpieces. Team these flowy outfits with jhumkis, chandbali earrings and/or chunky rings. If you have half or quarter sleeved anarkalis, then a set of pretty bangles will add more spunk and vibrancy to your overall getup.
- Shararas – Customary attire that is a favourite among Indian Muslims, sharara is an outfit that speaks of elegance, style and royalty. With the festival of Eid being a perfect excuse to pull out a celebratory look, a fashionable, sexy yet comfortable looking sharara is all you need. Put along your golden, silver, kundan or pearl studded earrings and add a bit of shimmer on your makeup to display an overall dazzling look.
- Short Hemline Kameezs with Wide/Palazzo Pants – If you want to make a striking impression in attire that looks heavy, is comfy to carry, while also helping you keep your finger on the fashion pulse, then Palazzo pants teamed with kameez with short hemlines will definitely catch your attention. While choosing such attire, keep in mind to choose lighter fabrics like chiffon or cotton net to beat the sweltering heat. If possible wear stilettos to add oomph to your overall look.
- Kaftan Dresses and Kurtis – An outfit that will add glamour and drama to your body on any given day is Kaftan. On special occasions like Eid, this Arabian styled gown like outfit is one of the safest bets for women of all sizes. Long, flowy and figure flattering, kaftans come in various fabrics. The best ones for the festival being chiffon, satins and lycra.
However, if you want a twist in this classy outfit, then kaftan kurtis are quite in trend. embroidered, laced, printed or satin based kaftan kurtis when teamed with tight leggings, churidars or harem pants are apt for both formal and informal occasion.
