The glowing crescent and the sacred new moon- the Ramadan month, a significant time for the Islamic community, bring about loads of cheers. Amidst the fast-paced routines and new-age challenges, it’s a delight to witness how people have made the most of these happy times.
Of all the Eid celebrations in an annual calendar, Ramadan is a highlight with undisputed cultural relevance. Historical sources and folklore narrate the auspicious Ramadan month as historically significant when Muhammad- the founder of Islam, first accessed the holy Quran. The birth of Islam has taken up the face of a month-long celebration when devotees observe food-and-water fasting through the sunrise to sunset hours, followed by lip-smacking feasts under the night sky.
While the fasting rules of Ramadan may sound too strict, the Islamic community welcomes this time of the year for its social arena and scrumptious Iftar treats.
Eid Celebrations Across The Globe
Islam is the world’s second-largest religious group, dominant in several Asian countries like Iran, Pakistan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Middle-East countries, and North Africa. Other countries like India, Egypt, and Russia, among several others, have a substantial population of Muslims. However, with cultural diffusion and increasing cosmopolitan spaces, one can witness Ramadan festivities across the globe.
An Occasion to Dazzle
Seeing the whole picture narrates a tedious line-up of rituals within the community. Yet, it brings about just the ideal ambiance to indulge in exquisite lehengas, sparkling sarees, and trendy fusion wear but, above all, festive suits!
Keeping up with the grandeur of festivals, Eid is undisputedly the time to dress up and show up in all festive sparkle! And that calls for a splurge in the latest Eid Festive Collection available everywhere- including several online shopping stores.
The dressing code for the Suhur (pre-fast meal), Iftar (fast-breaking meal), the Namaz-hour, and the Eid-ka-Chand celebration is about a rich display of traditions. While most men wear traditional pathani suits, bandhgalas, sherwanis, or kurta pajama sets, the women indulge in heavily embroidered palazzo sets, sharara suits, Anarkali dresses, and indo-western silhouettes.
Color Palettes and Suit Styles for Women
When selecting an outfit for Eid, green is one palette you can never overlook! The auspicious color code is everywhere in its innately appealing versions- from lemony green straight-cut kurtas to deep green sharara ensembles, the green palette perfectly syncs with the festive dazzle in glittery metallic hues and luminescent embellishments.
While medium to deep green is the typical Islamic shade, you can conveniently deviate to variants like aqua, olive, mint, and pistachio, especially for the day. As a fashionista, picking your styles in other festive palettes, like rani pink, mustard, shades of blue, and classic black, is equally acceptable!
Plenty of ensembles and silhouettes match the festive ambiance, out of which my first vote would go to sharara suits! Nothing beats the exuberant look of embellished bell bottoms paired with the classic straight-cut kurta or the in-trend peplum tops.
Anarkali suits, floor-length suits with front slit kurtas, flared palazzo sets, and indo-western coordinates are some of the other salwar suit versions best complementing the occasion of Ramadan. I would also suggest experimenting with designer dupattas over plain suits and layering with shrugs and jackets; the celebrations last a couple of weeks, so variety is the key to creating lasting impressions!
Outfit Ideas for Namaz
Going through the preachings of the Holy Quran is a daily routine during Ramadan month. And well, since this month is abundant with prayer moments, there’s a need to perk up your looks during those hours! Plain or fine-printed suits in cotton, rayon, and soft silks would go well for your pious hour, while you can reserve the shimmer and bling for the feast and social moments.
When embracing printed styles, floral detailed salwar suits are fail-safe sartorial choices. Best suited in bright tones for the day and darker palettes for the evening- flower power is forever!
What to Wear for Iftar?
The Iftar feast after dusk definitely calls for some elevated dazzle after it’s the much-awaited hour to indulge in your favorite savories! Black Anarkali suits and darker colors with shimmery accents like sequins, mirror work resembling appliques, and dainty stones get a thumbs-up for the evening reverie. Also, don’t forget to add some scintillating accessories!

And that makes it a day when you must step out in your most impressive festive suit!
The Eid al-Fitr festival continues for almost a week, and for those back-to-back outings, you can go experimental with fusion styles.
