Eid Style Inspiration
The Eid Al Adha holiday season is just around the corner. A five day festival centered around families coming together to celebrate and enjoy one of the holiest holidays, it is important to feel comfortable yet stylish as you’re out and about – taking a trendy twist on the traditional elegant look. As always, our Style Doctors UAE team is here to give some much needed style inspiration for looking and feeling your best during the Eid celebrations.
The Casual Abaya Look
As most of us know, the Middle East is famous for its beautiful statement piece – the Abaya. Reserved yet versatile, the Abaya adds extraordinary glamour to any outfit!
In fact, there are thousands of ways to style a simple abaya. Pictured above, the piece can be worn casually to exhibit a smart chic appearance. Paired with shimmery midi pants, a simple blouse and accompanying accessories, this classy look can be worn day to night with ease – perfect for a full day of celebrating!
Keeping the idea of modest fashion in mind, this denim look has a comfortable feel whilst putting you on the forefront of fashion. The flared jean is very on trend and its figure flattering cut makes it suitable for most body-shapes. Pair these with a v-neck striped shirt to give definition and make your upper body appear longer and leaner. If you’re feeling daring, try a monochromatic look – white top with white flares with white accessories to leave you looking undeniably sophisticated.
Trendy Eid Look
Here at Style Doctors, we know that the key to a perfect outfit is all in the details, and utilizing on-trend accessories accomplishes just that. We suggest a simple satin blouse paired with a long floral skirt that exudes elegance, accented with statement accessories to make it stand out. Add a pearl studded barrette, typically worn on one side with your hair down and stylish color-tinted sunglasses to your outfit for a contemporary retro feel.
One of the most popular Eid looks, the Kaftan is a graceful and comfortable piece that, if accessorized correctly, can be pulled off with ease.
Kaftans can be created using various different prints. Our rule of thumb is to take the ‘less is more’ approach when it comes to jewelry. Style your look with delicate earrings, neutral heels and a simple clutch to elevate the Kaftan look rather than distract from it.
The ‘Desi Eid’ Look
With Dubai being home to a large Indian and Pakistani population, the ‘Desi Eid’ look is inspired by the cultural staple pieces of these two cultures. A nice suit, saree or lehenga are just a few options to elevate your Desi Eid outfit. We suggest accessorizing with a solid colored clutch and layered gold jewelry for a soft accent to this intricate look.
Five different looks for the five day festival: whether you try a different look each day, or stick to your favorite, we hope these styling tips will help maximize your wardrobe in the upcoming Eid season. If you would like to elevate your holiday style but don’t know where to begin, our stylists would love to help you create the perfect Eid wardrobe. Book your style session here.
