4 Types of Versatile Eid Outfits for Day or Night

It’s almost that time! The time for Eid a beautiful celebration that I cannot wait for every year! Amazing food, vibrant clothes, and most important spending time with our family and friends. The most exciting part growing up was the new outfit I got to wear on Eid–and it still is! It is our one of only two holidays and everyone should dress their best! I, being desi, have of course always wore my traditional clothing. But in the recent years, Pakistani fashion has somewhat merged with the global fashion. The tops that use to be up to our knees are now floor length–almost like a gown but with more handwork. In recent years, to Eid Prayer I have been wearing a maxi skirt or dress and then switching traditional at night. Hopefully I can give you inspiration in what you could wear this Eid!

1. Lightweight


This first look is a super easy look and can be pulled out from any of your closets. It is soft yet fresh at the same time. This is perfect for Eid Prayer and during the day. For the skirt, I would choose similar light colors to mint such as light pink, yellow or even orange. When paired with a nude top such as lace or even chiffon–it gives a soft, lightweight effect.

2. Minimalist


This second look is slightly more dressed up. Depending on the hijab color you choose it can be versatile for day and night. This particular combination is more ideal for the evening because of the darker colors in the clutch. For a day look, swap the taupe hijab for a brighter color such as red or orange or even swap the clutch for a more vibrant one–maybe a floral one!

3. Polished


This third look is ideal for the evening. The fitted black blazer and gold belt aren’t best for Eid Prayer, mainly because it’ll be pretty hot during the day. Our Eid Prayer is usually held outside in a park, so blazer would be too constricting. I would definitely wear this to an evening ‘Eid party the night or nights to follow.

4. Traditional


Lastly, if you have traditional clothing, then go for it! Whether its shalwar kameez, kaftans, jalabiyya, or an abayah. The best part about Eid is that all Muslims come together for Eid Prayer, from all cultures and what better way to represent that diversity than our clothes.

I can’t wait to see what everyone wears on Eid. What will you be wearing?

  • Salam Alaykhum,
    Sister in islam,

    Just to clarify with you as a muslim
    You are not permitted to take any photography of humans and as well as animals unless it is for educational purposes or legalisation .

    It is haram for anyone to take photos of themselves because you have a soul. Once you take photos you are taking pictures of a soul. The same applies for drawing ,
    The image makers will be given one of the worst punishments from Allah !

    Please let me reference you with an authentic Hadith.

    One should realize that the prohibition of picture making is EXTREMELY SEVERE, that it is counted among the enormities, and the threats against doing it are very emphatic. Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim relate that a man came to Ibn Abbas (Allah be well pleased with him and his father) and said, “My livelihood comes solely from my hands, and I make these pictures. Can you give me a legal opinion about them” Ibn Abbas told him, “Come closer,’ and the man did. “Closer,” he said, and the man did, until he put his hand on the man’s head and said: “Shall I tell you what I heard from the Messenger of Allah, Prophet Muhammed (Allah bless him and give him peace) I heard the Messenger of Allah say, “Every maker of pictures will go to the fire, where a being will be set upon him to torment him in hell for each picture he made. So if you must, draw tress and things without animate life in them.”

    And Imam Tirmidhi relates that the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, “On the Day of Judgment, part of the hell fire will come forth with two eyes with which to see, two ears with which to hear, and a tongue with which to speak, saying, ‘I have been ordered to deal with three: he who holds there is another god besides Allah, with every arrogant tyrant, and with makers of pictures.”

    And Bukhari, Tirmidhi, and Imam Nasa’i relate the prophetic hadith form Ibn Abbas, “Whoever makes a picture, Allah shall torture him with it on the Day of Judgment until he can breathe life into it, and he will never be able to.”

    The reason for the unlawfulness of pictorial representation is that it imitates the creative act of Allah Most High, as is indicated by the hadith related by Imam Bukhari and Imam Muslim that A’isha (Allah be well pleased with her) said, “The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) returned from a trip, and I had draped a cloth with picture on it over a small closet. When he saw it, he ripped it down, his face colored, and he said, “A’isha, the people most severely tortured by Allah on the Day of Judgment will be those who try to imitate what Allah has created,”

    The foregoing hadiths show that producing representation is unlawful under any circumstances, and just as making a picture is unlawful, so too is procuring one, because the threat that pertains to the users, for pictures are only made to be used.

    The determining factor in the prohibition of procuring images is the purposes for which they are procured. For example, someone who buys cookies with the shape of animals is not doing wrong if his purpose is to eat, though the maker of them is doing wrong. And similarly with books containing pictures, if the buyer intends obtaining the text, then the presence of pictures is the fault of the printer, not the buyer. The same holds for photographs required for official documents: the authorities are responsible for the sin, not the individual forced to comply.

    • As much as I would like to take what you are saying seriously, I cannot. You are taking this extremely out of context, how is a mere photo replicating God’s creations when the only intention is to demonstrate/teach. So you are saying 95% of Instagram users will be punished. When you are saying these things, people will call us extremists.

      Just a last FYI, how sure are you that these Hadiths are indeed authentic? Search online and offline and you will come to the conclusion that they are likely not. However, is some of are actually true then I believe you are distorting them with your interpretations.
