Get These Trendy Anarkali Suits For The Festive Month of Ramzan and Eid
The glowing crescent- the sacred new moon! A festival deeply rooted to the Islamic culture- Ramzan Eid holds a significant position in the heart of every Muslim across the globe. The auspicious month of Ramadan forms one of the five main pillars of Islam. It denotes the time when the Quran was first revealed to the Muhammad. Strict fasting- refraining from consumption of food and even water during the day is the most important routine followed during this time. Amidst all the piousness, is the idea of families spending time together and strengthening their bond of love with blessings from Allah.
Eid Celebrations Across The Globe
Islam is the world’s second largest religious group. It is a dominant religion in a number of Asian countries like Iran, Pakistan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Middle-East countries as well as North Africa. Apart from these, a number of other countries like India, Egypt, Russia and many more have a substantial Muslim population. Also, globalization and relocation of Muslims to different regions has made Eid a happening celebration in most of the countries. Indeed, it is a dazzling occasion that reinforces the spirit of joy beyond communities and national boundaries.
It’s the time to look your best!
The very essence of any festival lies in pampering yourself with a new wardrobe. People feast together during the suhur (pre-fast meal) and iftar (fast-breaking meal), putting efforts on looking presentable for every ritual. While most of the men wear their traditional pathani suits, the women usually opt for Pakistani style palazzo suits, shararas, Abaya suits and majestic anarkalis.
Colour palettes and suit styles for women
Green is the colour of Islam and therefore the most commonly spotted palette during these days. Heavily embellished suits and lehengas in shades of green are preferred during cultural occasions and weddings.
While medium to deep green is the typical Islamic shade, women have opened up to contemporary and bouncy variants like aqua, olive, mint and pistachio. But festive wear is not strictly confined to green, outfits in colours like rani pink, mustard, shades of blue, etc. add to the lively spirit of Ramadan.
Where colours palettes are plenty, outfit styles for Eid too have expanded to accommodate innovations in fashion. Sharara suit is the most preferred silhouette by the tradition conformers, while the new-age fashion mavens love embracing trends. Indo-western lehenga suits, jacket lehenga cholis, front slit palazzo suits and Anarkali kurtis are some of the current favourites this season.
Outfits worn during Namaz
Reading namaz is a daily norm, yet during this auspicious month this norm becomes more special. After such intense fasting, you can reward yourself with new outfits even for your prayer time. Choose softer, neutral or muted tones and simpler suits with moderate thread embroidery or appliques. You can reserve all the shimmer and bling for other Ramadan rituals.
For social meet-ups during the day, choose bright colours, pastels or effervescent colour palettes like neon green and sky blue. Pick colours that match your personality and individual preferences. Floral salwar suits make great attire for any kind celebration!
For evening parties play around with dark tones like brown and black. In Islam, the colour brown is associated with purity and peace while black is a classic favourite. Blend in with the grandness of the occasion with majestic silhouettes like flared floor-length suits.
Eid can be called the grand finale Ramadan, a day that marks the end of a month-long tedious fast. A special Eid prayer followed by lots of socializing and feasting on meat and delicacies- the day and the evening are abuzz with activities. Your attire can be full of dazzle- wear outfits flooded with sequins and metallic ostentation; be a shining star.
These days, the zest of the community has extended the celebration of Eid to almost an entire week! Ramadan may traditionally be an Islamic festival, but with the world population opening up to a global culture, it gives us all a reason to celebrate.
We wish you all a very happy and stylish month of universal love-filled festivities ahead!
