Looks for the Holy Month of Ramadan

May 3, 2019

With the Holy Month of Ramadan just around the corner, it’s time to think about altering our wardrobes. From swapping out our short sleeves for shoulder cover ups to lengthening our hemlines, Ramadan is all about demure fashion. While the key to Ramadan fashion is to refrain from wearing revealing or tight fitted clothing, by no means does conservative fashion have to be boring.

Fashion designers have gradually been creating collections with their Muslim fashionista followers in mind. As a result, Ramadan collections have never been so stylish.

Long-Sleeve Maxi Dresses

When in doubt, you simply can’t go wrong with a beautiful maxi dress. In fact, the right maxi dress combines effortless and classic style with modest, flowy silhouettes. A long-sleeve dress is the ideal choice for any Ramadan event. Not only are maxi dresses trendy, but there are an endless number of options in a wide range of patterns and colors to choose from. From soft pastels with cascading ruffles to vibrant animal prints and tie-dye, your options are limitless.

Modern Kaftan

Elegant and chic, the kaftan is a Ramadan wardrobe staple. An updated version of the traditional Abaya, a kaftan is the perfect addition to top off your look. Whether you choose to wear your kaftan over your loose pants, long flowy dresses, or nice pair of casual jeans, you’ll have a wide range of prints, patterns, and colors to choose from.

Dress Up the Loose Cuts

Modest fashion does not have to be bland or boring. In fact, just the opposite! When it comes time to select your evening attire, don’t shy away from printed and colorful designs. Consider adding style choices with lovely embroidery designs and bead detailing.

Modest Skirts & Full Sleeve Tops

Ramadan provides the perfect time to tap into the modest skirt trend. A flowing and whimsical floor sweeping maxi skirt can transition from daylight fast to evening Iftars with ease. Pair your favourite modest skirt with a lovely full sleeve top for the perfect modest, yet trend setting coservative look. A formal blouse with colourful accents will also provide the perfect item to mix and match with your favourite skirt or pants.

Mix it Up

Looking for the perfect Iftar or evening outfit? Pairing a statement skirt or trouser with more understated pieces is an effortless choice without sacrificing your sense of style. For example, consider pairing a long stripe panel pleated skirt or floral print pants with a long sleeved ribbed shirt.

Also, don't be afraid to mix up your look by wearing silk tunics with wide-leg pants in block colors. Lightweight blazers and printed scarves are also a great way to layer your look while keeping cool in the daytime heat.

Pant Suits & Perfect Pants

A pair of essential pants will go a long way this month. Versatile, a pair of stylish pants or jeans can be paired with a dress or a shirt. Additionally, a pair of pants can be worn multiple times, mix and match for different looks.

Ramadan Fashion Tips

While Ramadan calls for modest wear, abiding by the dress code of the Holy Month doesn't necessarily mean wearing only Kaftans. There are many other amazing ways to look spot-on while respecting the rules.
