The glowing crescent and the sacred new moon- the Ramadan month, a significant time for the Islamic community, brings about loads of cheers. Amidst the global ups and down following the pandemic, it’s a delight to see how people have been making the most of these delightful occasions.

Of all the Eid celebrations turning up in the annual calendar, Ramadan is indeed the most special. Historical sources and folklore indicate that Ramadan was the month when Muhammad- the founder of Islam, first accessed the holy Quran. The birth of the religion is a month-long celebration when patrons alter their food cycle by fasting from sunrise to sunset and engaging in cultural meal hours during the night.

While the daily routine that even dictates avoidance of drinking water may sound too strict, the Islamic community welcomes this time of the year with plenty of social gatherings and the indulgent Iftar treat!

Eid Celebrations Across The Globe

Islam is the world’s second-largest religious group. It is dominant in several Asian countries like Iran, Pakistan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Middle-East countries, and North Africa. Other countries like India, Egypt, Russia, and many more have a substantial Muslim population. Adding this to the degree of globalization and relocation of Muslims to different regions has made Eid a time when the entire globe dazzles!

An Occasion to Look your Best

Plenty of rituals within the community dominate the scenario. It 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 stores.

The dressing code for the suhur (pre-fast meal), Iftar (fast-breaking meal), the Namaz-hour, and the Eid celebration is a rich display of traditions. While most men wear their traditional pathani suits or kurta pajama sets, the women indulge in heavily embroidered Pakistani style palazzo suits, shararas, Abaya suits, and majestic Anarkali outfits

Color Palettes and Suit Styles for Women

Green is the color staple and culturally auspicious in Islam. Embellished suits and lehengas crafted in shades of green are a preference during weddings and festivals like Ramadan.

While medium to deep green is the typical Islamic shade, you can take a little diversion to variants like aqua, olive, mint, and pistachio, especially for the day. Well, as a fashionista, it would best to pick your styles in other festive palettes, like rani pink, mustard, shades of blue, and the classic black!

There are plenty of ensembles and silhouettes that 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.

Anarkali suits, floor-length suits with front slit kurta, 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 some experimenting with designer dupattas over plain suits and jacket-layering; the celebrations last a couple of weeks, and so, variety is the key to create lasting impressions!

Outfits for Namaz

Reading Namaz is a daily routine during the 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 prayer time, while you can reserve all the shimmer and bling for the feast and social moments.

Cream Crepe Silk Digital Floral Printed Suit

When it comes to printed styles, Floral salwar suits are an evergreen classic. Bright tones for the day and darker palettes for the evening- flower prints are an anytime-anywhere detail!

The Iftar feast happening after dusk calls for elevated dazzle. Black Anarkali suits and darker colors with shimmery accents like sequins, metallic appliques, and stones get a thumbs-up for the evening gala. Also, don’t forget to add some scintillating accessories!

Outfits for Ramzan Eid

The Grand Finale- witnessing the ‘Eid Ka Chand’ marks an end to the long Ramadan month. Starting off the celebrations with a special prayer, the following day of Eid-e-Milad is one of the most exorbitant festivities across the planet. And this is the day when you must step out in your prettiest festive suit!

The Eid-e-Milad festival continues for almost a week, and, for those back-to-back outings, you can go experimental with fusion styles. Anarkali kurtis– the hottest trend of the season and blended styles like indo-western lehenga suits, crop top & palazzo coordinates with jacket can be your perfect wardrobe allies for the week.

It may be risky to step out these days, but well, a safe and happy time with your near ones and socializing over virtual meetings can make your festive moments count as precious-celebration. Amidst all the challenges, a good wardrobe can instantly pep up your festive mood!
