It’s almost here! The Holy Month of Ramadan has almost come to a close once again, and Eid al-Fitr is just around the corner. As you wait with bated breath to get together with your closest friends and families, it may also be a good idea to put together an ensemble that commemorates the special occasion in a unique way. Not quite sure what to wear for Eid this time around? Whether you prefer soft hues, playful patterns, or all-out glitz, Vogue Arabia has the perfect kaftans, abayas, gowns and scarves for you.
Keep it classic
A time of looking back on personal growth, Eid al-Fitr 2022 deserves to be celebrated in something that’s not just elegant to look at, but can also come in handy for years to come. If less-is-more has always been your motto, invest in Azzalia’s ivory draped abaya, or play up earthy hues with a buttery beige number from Barza. Fendi’s ivory and gold gown gives traditional wear a contemporary twist, while Totême’s black and white scarf promises to see you through many seasons to come.
Balancing comfort and style is an art, and this Eid, there’s no going wrong with a lightweight abaya in a playful pattern. Illi Studio’s printed layer is a winner for the hot months ahead, as is Shatha Essa’s delicate piece, embroidered with gold palm trees. Chi-ka’s ombré kaftan proves that lightweight outfits can pack a punch too, while Ghizlan’s floral number adds a certain romance to festive dressing.
Make a statement
For many, Eid al-Fitr brings with it much-awaited get-togethers, and if you’re all set to sparkle, check out Semsem’s metallic kaftan, or Hessa Falasi’s sheer feather-detailed abaya. Needle & Thread’s intricately embellished gown promises to stand out no matter where you go, and Monique Lhuillier’s ruffled coat is just what you need for a stop-and-stare moment.
