A Look Back at Eid 2018: Outfit Inspiration for Summer
With the sacred month of Ramadan falling behind us, those of faith across the globe have recently celebrated Eid al-Fitr. A time for celebration, reflection and community, we loved gathering with our faith leaders, friends and family this year.
In contrast to the more reserved outfits many of us wear throughout Ramadan, Eid offered Muslim women a chance to wear something brighter and more playful. With our Ramadan/Eid collection offering the latest styles, from elegant dresses to kimonos adorned with embroidered flowers, in today's post, we're taking a look back at the Eid outfits that owned the celebrations and gatherings this year - and giving you our inspiration for the upcoming summer months.
A touch of botanicals
Here in the UK, summer is just around the corner - and there's no better way to celebrate most people's favourite season than with a statement piece of fashion. Nothing says summer quite like flowers bursting with colour, and, in our latest range, you'll find pieces that are perfect for displaying your love of new life and botanicals. A stunning garment worn by customers at Eid this year is our Floral Embellished Dirac in Aubergine or White, which offers a lightweight and flattering silhouette that can transition effortlessly from day to night.
For something more subtle, but equally as stylish, our Midi Dress comes in a spectrum of shades from deep burgundy to plush grey. This chic button-up comes with sequin detailing on the sleeves that comes together to produce a beautiful flower effect. Together with a pair of white trousers and kitten heels, you're sure to own the stand-out summer outfit of any social gathering.
A traditional abaya with a twist
If you're looking for a traditional garment for June through September, we also have the latest in abaya fashion. Whether you'd prefer a plain open abaya you can layer or a more ornate abaya with intricate embroidery and unique detailing, you'll find it all in our latest collection. The Ornate Embroidered Open Jacket Abaya comes in a classic black silhouette with a splash of sewn-in colour across the cuff and back - which makes this abaya perfect for those looking for a contemporary update to their wardrobe this year.
A timeless dress
With our new collection comes a raft of new dress designs perfect for a special occasion. Gorgeously soft, unbelievably comfortable and unashamedly modest, AbayaButh dresses speak for themselves in that they don't require excess complexity and over-the-top features to make them truly beautiful. Stand-out pieces like our Mauve Pleated Dress and Gold Evening Dress are ideal for more formal evenings - whether that's dinner with a loved one or a formal family gathering.
A smart but striking kimono
Islamic clothing, for us, is as much about diversity as it is fashion - and you'll see this reflected in the broad range of styles in this latest collection. Some muslimahs prefer to keep things simple when it comes to their outfit selection - and our kimonos offer that with a smart silhouette and eye-catching details across a spectrum of colours. Low-key luxury is easy to achieve with our Navy and Cream Classic Kimono - which offers a pleasing contrast when paired with a white base layer, as seen in the product shots.
Or why not mix it up with mosaic detailing? We also stock both navy and black kimonos that boast beautiful mosaic patterns across the lapel and cuff. Alternatively, mix seasonal patterns with a contemporary design with our Empire Blossom Kimono. Whether you're visiting relatives or eating out with friends, this kimono is bound to impress.
