As we reach the last leg of Ramadaan, the sudden rush for the perfect Abaya & hijab Eid outfit becomes apparent. The malls will quickly be filled with females milling around on a last minute rush for the finishing items to their Eid outfit.
The Eid preparation
Eid is an exciting time for Muslims around the world. I remember, since childhood, shopping for Eid clothes were very tiresome. I had no idea what I wanted, but it had to be something no one else would wear on an Eid day. These days, there are many outfit ideas and styles to choose from. Let’s not even get started on the amount of hijab style which can be found online these days!!! It’s so over-whelming, you won’t know which style to choose. Let’s have a look at some Eid outfit ideas and be prepared this Eid and prevent the last minute rush.
Abaya & Hijab Eid Outfit ideas
Some ladies prefer to wear the abaya on Eid days. There are amazing abaya styles available. Each abaya has its own style and they aren’t only available in black, but in the colour of the season and the colour trend at the moment. I have seen the amazing Dolce and Gabbana collection. If you missed it, here’s a quick overview.
Dolce and Gabbana Collection
I love this abaya. I would never wear an abaya for Eid, but this style would make me change my mind. I love the combinations of fabrics. The satins and sheer lace is so stunning. I wouldn’t necessarily wear a black scarf as well, but this sheer lace scarf matches perfectly with this abaya.
Here’s the style I was speaking about. A trendy coloured abaya in the latest colour trend with a beautiful stiletto heel with jewelled tips. It’s important to get the matching accessories like over-sized bags, chunky bangles, rings and a nice pair of sunglasses to keep you cool in the sun.
Traditional eastern wear for Eid
So, this Eid I decided to wear something different, eastern wear! When I was younger, I wore eastern clothes every Eid. As I grew older and western fashion became more trendy, I stopped wearing eastern completely. These days the eastern clothing incorporates modern fashion colour trends and modern clothing cuts and styles. I just love eastern wear, as it is so elaborate and bold and you get to wear every piece of jewellery you own!!! So, what did I buy? A Punjabi salwar kameez in navy blue and gold with matching eastern earrings. Here are some eastern wear inspiration.
We are experiencing winter, so this anarkali with velvet panels and dark colours are perfect. It has lovely gold embroidery with pink, orange and yellow trim. She has a lovely side twist hijab style with head-chain and accessory at the side.
This is so stunning. I would definitely wear this outfit. The shimmer gold lining and pink tulle layer is very princess-like and the embroidery is so exquisite. I want it, no, I need it.
This is an unusual styled eastern outfit which has influences from a western wrapped dress. It’s perfect for any body type, as the wrap creates a slimming effect.
Western Eid outfit inspiration
Here are some western outfit ideas.
This is a stunning skirt and it’s very different and will definitely catch anyone’s attention. I would wear it with a pretty gold blouse and gold shoe. Basically cream and gold. It will look stunning.
Those were some inspiring outfit ideas. Even though I bought my outfit already, I almost think I need a second one, or third.
