Outfit inspo for Eid al-Fitr
Eid al-Fitr is on its way, and just as important as finding a gift for your loved ones, is finding a fab new outfit for yourself to celebrate in on the day.
To inspire your look this Eid, we’ve worked with a few of our local friends Arshee and Sara (who you might recognise from last year) and the lovely Ally family to inspire looks for everyone in the family. As children, Arshee and her sister Sara say they were “taught to wear their best clothes and adorn themselves, which is a tradition that’s been practiced for centuries".
For them, Eid represents “…an exciting time when everyone’s out searching for that perfect outfit, be it either the perfect pair of shoes, or matching jewellery or even the latest shade of lipstick. We’re all going out of our way to buy a new outfit, to dress well and express the joy and happiness we feel inside...it really makes dressing up all that more special".
In the Ally family, Laaiqah says “the night before Eid, we give each other new clothes and presents”.
Whether it’s a full outfit, or a few accessories to change up an existing look, Eid presents a great excuse to treat yo’self or someone you love to something fun and new, so here’s some of our picks.
