Fashion don'ts for Eid that you need to know

  • Print

Putting together the perfect outfit for Eid is not always an easy task. When heading out to meet your family, friends, distant relatives (that you only meet once a year), you would obviously want to get the right look that's not too over-the-top and not too sloppy casual.
Did you know?

Dressing nicely for Eid is not just about looking and feeling good but it is Sunnah to wear one's best clothes for the occasion.

 Ibnul-Qayyim said: "The Prophet (peace be upon him) would wear his best clothes to go to the Eid prayer. He had a cloak that he wore specifically on the two Eids and Friday. Sometimes he wore green cloaks, other times he wore a lined red cloak - not solid red as some people think, but it had red lines like the Yemenite lined cloaks."

So, are you already getting anxious just thinking about what to wear on the morning of Eid and to all those open houses that you're invited to? Whether it's a family party or a friendly hangout, here are 5 "Eid fashion don'ts" to read, memorize and use.


Eid fashion don't #1 : dont' be so matchy-matchy There's nothing more yawn inducing than a matching head-to-toe outfit. Gone are the days when the colour of your outfit needs to exactly match your hijab, accessories, shoes and bag. Instead of sticking to one single hue, look for "complimentary" colours which actually mean the "opposite" colours. Black and white, for instance, are complimentary colours. That's why they look so great together. You know, that whole "opposites attract" thing. It's time to experiment and play around with colours!

Eid fashion don't #2: don't wear an outfit that is too tight You can actually look stylish in something loose while getting the thumbs up from your grandma. Figure-hugging and skintight attires are not only inappropriate for Eid but they restrict you from enjoying those delicious delectables. You don't want to be sucking in your stomach and constantly adjusting the top that starts digging into your sides. Opt for flowy tops or kaftans to look chic while staying comfortable throughout the day.

Eid fashion don't #3: don't be afraid to accessorizeYou don't need to spend a bomb for multiple Eid outfits. Just play with different types of jewelry, scarves, belts and bags to renew any outfit. Accessorizing is a creative process which helps you to create your own style. With different accessories, nobody will notice that you're wearing the same outfit you wore 3 days ago.

Eid fashion don't #4: don't wear revealing clothesThere might be something wrong if this doesn't come across as obvious to you. Skimpy, transparent, backless, midriff-baring outfits are a big No-No.

There are tons of modest options in the market nowadays that are super trendy and fashionable. So, please avoid wearing revealing outfits for Eid at all cost…unless you actually enjoy getting long lectures and death glares from your dad.Eid fashion don't #5: don't forget your feet

The tradition of removing shoes before entering a home is extremely common especially in most Muslim homes. But that doesn't mean you should neglect your feet when dressing up for Eid. No outfit is complete without the right pair of shoes so don't forget to jazz up your feet.

It's important to invest in a great pair of shoes that are not only stylish but comfortable. It has been said, "Give a girl the right pair of shoes, and she can conquer the world!"
