To borrow a phrase from Game Of Thrones, ‘Eid is coming’. With only 5 days left to Ramadan, we’re both sad, excited and a little stressed out. And to most, the last few days of Ramadan means spring-cleaning the entire house till you fall sick from the dust, making at least five different kuih-muih for your guests and buying your Eid outfits. Now, there are many ways you can tackle the last issue (and I know some of you are sniggering cuz you’ve already bought yours at the start of the year!); like filtering your searches by cost, colour or designer. So we at Zahara are helping you ladies out by filtering the search even further, if you’ve yet to purchase your Eid outfits. To make it easier, we’ve decided to just focus on 1 shopping site and FashionValet proves superior…duh! After trolling the renowned fashion site, here are 5 looks for inspiration this Eid; Ethereal, Mod, Prints Galore, Avant-Garde and Pocketful of Sunshine!
If you’re looking to feel like an Elven princess (Arwen from Lord of The Rings, anyone?) or a human princess, look no further than Love To Dress. This fashion label offers tailored fit, exquisite materials and ready-to-wear dresses for modern Muslimahs. Bonus: they cater to tall and petite sizes too! These dresses are beautiful, flowy and oh-so-flattering. Here are our 3 favourite dresses.
If you take inspiration from Twiggy, Andy Warhol, the Beatles and 1960s fashion in general, Kuntum by Najeeb Azami is the designer for you. Najeeb is known for his “less-is-more” motto and his playfulness with colours and patterns to bring out feminine silhouettes. Pair these with big sunglasses and colourful accessories to complete the look! Here are our 3 favourite dresses.
If you love prints, be it bold or muted, these 3 designers are doing it right: NH by Nurita Harith, Cala Qisya and Emel x Atilia Haron. Whether you’re into flowery prints à la a garden nymph, monochromatic marbling effects or artistic brushstrokes and dots, the following 3 dresses just give. us. life. Enough said.
What’s avant-garde and is it pretentious? Well, no and no. Avant-garde comes from the French phrase ‘advance guard’ and is defined as something that is innovative or experimental. These 3 dresses by Studio 133 Biyan, Mimpikita and Eggie Azman definitely push the boundaries of what is normally accepted as Eid outfits. Whether it’s wearing a songket pantsuit, an embellished sash or a two-tiered skirt with an upside-down bow, be prepared to turn heads with these outfits!
Who doesn’t love pockets? Not only does it make OOTDs look more chic and effortless, it stores things! Your handphone! Your tissues! Your keys! Money pockets to give out! The possibilities are endless! Too long have pockets been claimed by men’s fashion and now, we see a positively growing trend of pockets in women’s fashion as well. These 3 designers (Poplook Premium, Afiq M and S Baharim) support that notion by including pockets in their dresses. But fret not, these pockets don’t add bulk to your silhouette as they are meticulously designed with both form and function in mind.
