Although it seems like Ramadan just started, Eid al-Fitr is approaching fast. The holiday calls for lots of celebration, and there's no doubt everyone shows up with some of their best outfits. Muslim women will wear everything from the fanciest looks to cool-girl, dressed-down outfits that are still elevated and put-together. As someone who often turns toward traditional Pakistani clothing to celebrate Eid, I still love to look at the plethora of ensembles women put together for the joyful occasion, as they often inspire my outfits for months to come. As Eid comes on the heels of Ramadan, which is a period of reflection and growth, it’s common for fashion to be dictated by a woman’s newfound sense of self. Perhaps that means playing with colour, finding a new silhouette you love, or simply styling your tried-and-true separates in new ways.
For Eid al-Fitr outfit inspiration, I turned to Instagram to find outfits that are worth taking notes from. Whether you want to purchase something new or want ideas to re-wear pieces in your closet, the looks below will provide all the inspiration needed. I can’t wait to try out all of these, from the long-sleeve midi dresses with allover prints to the skirt suit. I’ve also pulled some chic modest fashion items that you can shop right here.
While I love a suit situation, I like to try something a little different with a skirt-and-jacket set. It'll be comfortable, breathable, and chic.
I love how Rida Mandavia combined modern details with traditional ones, using an old Pakistani Kurti in her closet and pairing it with Coach's latest It bag.
You really can never go wrong with a printed dress. It brings such fun elements of joy to an already happy occasion. It's also easy. Add a simple pair of sandals, and you're good to go.
If you don't want to think too much into it, opt for a matching top and pants. You can keep it minimal and let the set speak for you, or add accessories into the mix.
Slip dresses are a summer staple, and I love how they can work with an outfit that's dressed up or down.
Make a statement with a dress in one bright and solid hue.
If you're feeling a little creative, layer multiple pieces to play around with different silhouettes and textures. The frills of the white top complement the baby pink dress so well here.
