As the Holy Month begins today, you’re bound to see your festive calendar slowly but surely filling up with suhoor and iftar outings, along with family celebrations that allow for quality time with your loved ones.

During the month of self-reflection, less truly is more. So why not echo the peaceful mindset via your wardrobe? To go the simple, elegant route this Ramadan, look to SemSem for beautifully pleated dresses in jewel tones, or invest in a floral maxi from Mango’s exclusive collection. Taller Marmo’s fringed numbers are always a classic, and this season, the brand offers up a sunset-hued dress that’s worth checking out. If you love to layer, you can always top up a favorite from your existing repertoire with Purificacion Garcia’s bold yellow coat.
