Get These Trendy Anarkali Suits For The Festive Month of Ramzan and Eid
The glowing crescent and the sacred new moon- the Ramadan month, a significant time for the Islamic community brings about loads of cheers across the globe. Historical sources and folklore indicate that Ramadan was the time 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 community welcomes this time of the year, which also brings along an array of social gatherings and the much-awaited Iftar treat!
Eid Celebrations Across The Globe
Islam is the world’s second-largest religious group and is dominant in several Asian countries like Iran, Pakistan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Middle-East countries as well as 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!
It’s the occasion to look your best!
There may be plenty of rituals- the mandatory reading of Namaz and refraining from having food and water throughout the day. But above the diligent and tedious fasting is the delight of attending huge community gatherings and well, treating yourself to a brand new wardrobe!
The suhur (pre-fast meal) and iftar (fast-breaking meal), are the social hours for which being dressy a community norm. While most of the 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 undisputed color staple of the community- the most auspicious color of Islam. Heavily embellished suits and lehengas in shades of green, form the color code during weddings, and celebration moments, like the Ramadan month.
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 fanciful look of bell-bottoms that carry elaborateness and conciseness at the same time.
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 norm for the community, and it elevates in significance during the Ramadan. And well, since this month is full of community moments, there’s a need to perk up your looks during those prayer 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!
When it comes to print details, 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 held after dusk is the time for dazzle-indulgence. Black Anarkali suits and darker colors with shimmery details get a thumbs-up for the evening gala. Also, don’t forget those scintillating accessories!
Witnessing the ‘Eid Ka Chand’ is the time to rejoice- it marks an end to the month-long fasting by the Islamic community. Starting off the celebrations with a special prayer, the following day of Eid-e-Milad is one of the biggest 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. Palazzo sarees- the hottest trend of the season and blended styles like indo-western lehenga suits, crop top & palazzo coordinates with jacket can be your prettiest wardrobe allies for the week!
Stock up on time for the upcoming weeks of celebrations; we wish you loads of happiness ahead!
