Steal the spotlight in style this Eid


Eid-al-Adha is here again and while some of our Muslim sisters would be arriving from hajj, others did not travel this year. Not to worry, you can still steal the spotlight with our fashionable guide that would have you looking like a million Naira, even though you stayed back here in the country.

Most Muslim women’s style is comfortable, yet fancy, feminine and very elegant. What’s more, our effortlessly chic suggestions take you from daytime lounging to an evening soirée, while looking modest yet alluring and you wouldn’t even break a sweat.

Whether you’re looking for kaftan styles, floor-sweeping maxi dresses, something on the formal side or a pretty number that comes with embroidery, embellishment or a standout pattern, we’ve curated a range that’s perfect for Eid.

For the women, it’s all about dressing modestly while still being fashionable and on trend. Knowing how to layer is the essential styling trick. If you’re not keen on hiding your sleeveless dress under a layer, layer your dress over a great shirt or some knitwear. Print and texture are the easiest ways to add interest to any look. The addition of a print constrains your look from looking just a little too formal.

Also, our outfit’s colour is the first thing anyone notices; so never underestimate the power of colour. For almost all of us, this Eid might be a hot one, so make sure you choose a cool colour. Warm colours won’t be a good choice unless you’re lucky enough to be experiencing pleasant weather.

Certain colours will make you stand out at any Eid dinner party; these of course include black, blue and red. For lunch, brunch or a small get-together, go for lighter colours such as cream or pastels. Once you have chosen a colour for your outfit, do think of the right hijab to go with it. You can either choose to go monotone and match the hijab’s colour with your outfit (you may also take into account your skin tones), or you can choose to wear a contrasting hijab. Since this is a special occasion and we wouldn’t want you to look plain, I would suggest to go for a contrasting or fancy hijab that complements your outfit.

Some of the most ethereal dresses are a perfect match for your modest wardrobe. Find a long-sleeved maxi with a tiered hemline and bell sleeves for optimal movement.
Choose the Right Accessories Hijabis are lucky, as they don’t just get to accessorise their outfit, but also their hijabs. So don’t forget to look for some nice hijab accessories like a fancy pin or chain. But you don’t just need to focus on the right accessories but also the right amount of accessories. Bracelets, rings, necklaces and beautiful earrings would add a beautiful touch to your outfit. Remember that you’re dressing up for Eid, so keep things beautiful, elegant and sophisticated.
