Fine lines, pastel shades
Fine lines, pastel shades

Eid-al-Fitr is one of the biggest festivals of the year for Muslims and it is right around the corner. So what’s new on the stores for women?  Umpteen ghararas in different styles, layered, crinkled with gota etc. are surely the trend.

However, bright colours have given way to lighter shades, which is the trend of the season. Many women prefer wearing traditional clothing on Eid. And for women who do, there are also some brands that come up with special collections of traditional clothing like BIBA.

Floral designs, gotapattis, embroidery available in different styles of anarkalis, long kurtas, sequin kurtas with sharara/ghararas; these pristine designs will delight the brand conscious ones. 

Hyderabad- based designer Fatima, owner of 'Adaa' store, Banjara Hills, gives a styling tip, “One can pair kurti without a crinkled-chamki ghagra and the dupatta. Go for bright colour, gota detailing and sequence sprinkles to add perfect festive shimmer.”

She feels that people are more conscious nowadays about trend and says, "At present people with global exposure have become conscious. They want simple, classy cut with minimal embellishments. It’s more about comfort and elegance."

She says, “Go for timeless pieces always. Don’t just follow fads. More than embellishments it’s the fine cut that makes the outfit stand out. Eid calls for lovely joyous colours and pastel palette also looks elegant.”

Here is a trend list for this Eid:

Lawn suit
Whatever the season may be, but many women prefer the lawn suit as an obvious choice. They are comfortable and breathable, letting you truly enjoy your Eid.

Vibrant and pastel colours Bright colours are always the best choice on Eid. As pastel is the colour of the season, fancy anarkalis in pastels look graceful and are modest outfit choice for Eid. Pastel colour kurtis with palazzo pants are the latest style.

Kurta with skirt:
Perfect for the Eid occasion. Pair kurta with a voluminous ghera skirt which makes for an elegant evening wear.

Gharara pants
This year the gharara pants are back. They are basically a modern version of the traditional sharara and look exceptionally beautiful when paired with peplum tops – an option to try something new.

You can go for Banarasi anarkali with zari work and bright colours which fits perfectly for a Eid outing, but don’t forget to pair with jhumkis, it furnishes a regal look

Embellished bottoms
Kameez with pants have taken over quite remarkably. With the trend of embellished bottoms, it’s getting even better. Fitting styles like cigarette pants in embroidered details are a hot seller while laced tulip style pants are quite a glamorous replacement for the usual salwar. Light kameez with heavy embroidered shararas are also a great option for those looking for a change.

Sarees are evergreen, and most women love to wear one no matter what the occasion is. So, you can always go for a saree.

Salwar kameez
For most homemakers, Eid is an incredibly busy day with lots of cooking and dealing with guests. This is why a salwar kameez is the most practical outfit for the busy ones.
