Here are some of the styling guide and tips for 3 days of Eid that might help you decide your outfits for the occasion.
Styling for Eid: Day 1
1. Comfort Is The Key.
Styling guide and tips for 3 days of Eid should start with the very basics- comfortable yet chic. There are always two kinds of people when it comes to choosing dresses for festivities-the ones who go for comfort over anything and the ones who aspire everything from a dress. Taking account of the heat and humidity, one can go light on colours and fabric.
Summer colours like the shades of pastel are always a smart choice for your body. Dresses in breathable fabrics are also preferred accordingly. When it comes to breathable and airy fabric, nothing is better than the lawn fabric. If you think lawn suits are too mainstream and everyday-ish, you need to check out ‘luxury lawn’ collections of different brands. With intricate embroidery to elegant laces, you have it all. Embroidered shirt with flared sleeves or balloon sleeves with palazzos would give a chic look for the day.
Styling for Eid can not go wrong with glam up looks. One can choose classic colour combinations like black and white or just some darker shades for the last-minute fix to your never-ending search for a perfect dress for the evening party with families and friends. Some contemporary designs like animal print, tribal print make you stand out from the crowd. Use of pearls and beads on your dress gives an edge to your look. Crochet stitches, tassels and silk threads with contrasting colours are also a big hit when it comes to a glam up look for a night party or get-togethers.
What should be kept in mind while going for such detailing and designs is to keep the bottoms as simple as possible. Narrowed-styled palazzos or cigarette trousers are advisable when there is so much detailing going on the shirts and dupatta and channel all the attention in the right direction.
Styling for Eid: Day 2
3. Bringing White To Life
The best about a white dress is that it can be styled for any occasion accordingly and there is hardly a chance that it will ever disappoint you. You can go all white, from shirt to bottom as well as your dupatta or use some colours to break the monotony- there are no rules. Accessorising the dress with silver jewellery and colourful footwear is all you need for brunch with your girlfriends. Some hints of ocean blues and magenta pinks in the embroidery will make a statement to the dress it needs.
If you want to pair your dress with a colourful dupatta, make sure it has some vivid colours like the colour of Bougainvillea. One can go for the same colour as of dupatta as the embroidery of the shirt but make sure it has some texture in terms of embroidery or print, for example, of its own.
4. Banarsi For The Win
Styling guide and tips for 3 days of Eid gotta include Banarsi dresses. When you are tired and run out of ideas for dressing up, you can go for a Banarsi dress without an iota of doubt. As evergreen as it is, one can never go wrong with Banarsi. Either choose a plain shirt and straight or layered palazzos with a contrasting Banarsi dupatta or go for all Banarsi dress, it does not matter as long as it is Banarsi. If it becomes challenging to carry an authentic Banarsi dress as it is a heavily textured fabric, you can opt for Banarsi print on any fabric you like.
All you need to do is to keep accessorising subtle and toned down as Banarsi is heavily-textured material and demands all the attention to itself.
5. All Is Well If It’s Lawn
It is almost the end of Day 3 and if all you can think about is a lawn suit, then go get it. The texture, its lightness, its durability is unmatched. If you want to keep it simple and yet polished, then this is your best bet. Go for simple and elegant prints and keep it accessorized. You can choose to make a statement by flared or balloon sleeves and culottes and, voila you are good to go!
