Holiday season has arrived early! In just one month we’ll be gathering with our family, friends and community to celebrate Eid Al-Adha! Eid is always a fun-filled day with amazing food, sweets and of course gifts. One of my favorite things about Eid is dressing up in our best clothes to honor this blessed day.
I put together six different outfits that are modest and chic while formal enough for Eid with the ability to transition from day to night! I followed a general criteria which include minimal layers, comfort, affordability and of course fashion! Good luck and have a fabulous Eid Al-Adha inshAllah!
1) Solid Maxi Dress with Gold Decals
This dress is pretty vibrant and glamorous by itself, so keep jewelry minimal. All you need are timeless pieces like a cocktail ring, cuff bracelet and clutch. Since the dress is a solid color, a printed scarf and intricate sandal are the perfect pair.
2) Neutral Shirtdress with a Pop of Pastel
Even though this shirtdress is neutral, you don’t want to add too many colors to distract from it. Pair a white or crème dress with a pastel color like mint or lavender. Add a cropped blazer or sweater along with a sequined or jeweled clutch, bracelet and heels to accent the shine.
3) Printed Palazzo Pants with Flair
Palazzo pants are not only chic but incredibly comfortable. This Fall, they come in a variety of colors and prints. For these printed and neutral toned silk pants, pair a red or royal blue blouse to add a pop of color. Add Haute Hijab's Red Lizard scarf or wrap, a fun bag, and a pair of heels or wedges to give it extra flair.
4) Printed Kimono Maxi Dress
5) Vibrant Shirtdress with a Touch of Luxe
Shirtdresses and pants have been a Muslim girl’s staple outfit for years. To make it formal, add a pair of metallic trousers, a solid or printed blazer, colored pumps and a stylish crossbody bag. Haute Hijab's Blossom & Bloom scarf will pair nicely.
6) Maxi Skirt - 2 Ways
Maxi skirts are my favorite go-to pieces for formal occasions. There are many ways to wear and accessorize; you can pair a printed skirt with a solid shirt, or a solid skirt with either a printed or solid blouse. With a printed blouse, wear a solid scarf, and with a solid colored blouse and skirt, wear a printed scarf. Match accessories accordingly as well.
