Ramadan is but a few days away, for like it or not, it is the only month during the whole year where we get to strengthen our spirituality and where we can properly bond with loved ones over sacred mealtimes. Frantic preparations for this Holy month are well underway but don’t judge us when we admit to organising our closets prior to attacking our kitchens! The social aspect of Ramadan is just as strong as the spiritual aspect and preparing our outfits for this month-long festive time, is just as essential as preparing our homes and menus. Ramadan has long since been associated with modest fashion, and kaftans have taken centre stage when it comes to dressing up for Iftars and Suhours. But what if you’re just not into Kaftans and such? What’s a girl to do to maintain her sense of style during this Holy month? We have a few ideas below….
1 || Asymmetrical Tops
Play around with dimensions and lengths during this month. Anything asymmetrical will elevate your outfit instantly and give you a dose of style that is effortless and quite unique.
2 || Slip Dress + Blazer
This ingenious combo is so easy and effortless you could basically live in it! With a plethora of slip dresses and blazers around, you can come up with countless combinations and still look super chic while keeping modesty in check.
3 || Wide-Leg Pants
Another perfect piece that will elevate your outfits during Ramadan is the wide-leg pants. You could invest in a two-set outfit with matching tops, or you could simply add a flowy white shirt and leave the pants to do all the talking.
4 || Pleated Skirts
Skirts are thankfully all around these days. So pair your pleated skirt with just about anything and you will nail the modest fashion trend. Add a wide belt for emphasis and you’re all set. Don’t underestimate the power of a simple white shirt in this case!
5 || Sleeve Details
If you’re invited to an Iftar and all that’s showing is your upper body on the dining table, attract attention with interesting sleeve detailing. Be it a ruched sleeve or a fluted one, any sleeve detailing will catch the eyes. Just don’t drop your sleeve in your soup.
6 || Dresses
Dresses are another perfect way to celebrate this Holy month. Be they floral, striped, or dotted, you will surely find a long dress to match the occasion and serve you long after Ramadan.
