As Eid is just around the corner, everyone is worried about what to wear. Eid is one of the most joyous occasions for Muslims all around the globe. A lot of preparation goes into planning one’s attire and arranging parties, meet ups spanning over the three days of Eid (Don’t forget about the BBQ!).
Depending on where you live, the rituals and mode of celebration may differ, but the spirit of Eid remains the same. For every woman, her attire is very important as she wants to stand out in the crowd and garner praise. We have compiled a style guide for you to help you pick the best colors this Eid season.
The first think you need to keep in mind is the weather. In Pakistan, it is hot during the days and somewhat bearable at night. If you have to attend parties at night, you are free to choose whatever color you like, but during the day, you’ll have to be picky.
In hot regions, it is best to choose light colors like white, peach, beige or baby pinks. Light colors come across as more refreshing and soothing on a hot day. Avoid dark colors like black, brown and dark blue during the day.
Most of the big brands have a very rustic and earthen tone palette for their respective Eid collections. I saw varying shades of red, browns and greens. Here are some colors you can try this Eid.
Buzzing Browns-They Flatter Asian Skin Tone
Browns are gorgeous earthen tones that are really soothing. They are flexible colors, meaning they can be paired with almost any other color! Light tones of brown once added to the color scheme helps balance out the look. Go for shades like beige, pecan, cinnamon and coffee as they will help you get a really sophisticated look. Most of the top brand have ready to wear prêt designs in amazing shades of browns.
Don’t Patronize Pinks-They Scream The Word “Feminine”
Pink is such a gorgeous color, I don’t think any female can ever grow out of it. This Eid, wear something in baby pink! It is soothing to the eye and can be worn during the day and at night. Lastly, it goes with all skin tones! So channel the bubbly Blossom fan inside you and don a gorgeous baby pink this Eid. Avoid dark shades of pink like fuschia, magenta, rosewood and hot pink.
Raving Reds-Be That Lady In Red
This is one color that never goes out of style. Whether it’s a red sari, a red dress or red lingerie; it will suit you perfectly. Red says classy and chic and screams the word passion. Go for more earthy tones of red like crimson, rose, ruby and sangria. Avoid merlot, mahogany garnet and current this season when it comes to shades of red.
Go Green-Take Inspiration By Nature
Green resonates deeply with Muslim beliefs as it represents unity and purity. If you opt for green, it’s like your attire is silently spreading an aura of patriotism too as Independence Day just passed. Bear in mind not all shades of green should be worn, choose them wisely. Shades of green that are trending this season include emerald, lime, pear, pistachio and parakeet. Avoid dirty green, crocodile green and basil green.
The color of your attire plays a very important role in getting your personality across. Balance your color palette based on the climate, your skin tone, the occasion and the time of day. Take hint from the celebrities and Happy selection!!
