Remember the time during our childhood when we used to look forward to gorging on delectable food and a wide array of sweetmeats that came our way on the occasion of Ramadan? Eid has always been a special one for most of us. With the festival approaching, there is excitement in the air, festivities are in full swing, and love and joy are everywhere.
Since Eid is celebrated with such grandeur, our fashion game must be on point. Our fashion choices are usually determined by the weather and as Eid and the scorching heat come hand in hand this year, it is important to be comfortable without compromising on the glam.
We have put together a list that will guide you on how to keep fashionably cool this Eid.
While shararas and suit sets are still in demand, women these days are opting for long, summery dresses this Eid. With the temperature rising, lighter fabrics like georgette, cotton, and breathable blends are some of the top picks to beat the heat. Opting for embellished and embroidered dresses will keep you comfortable for long hours under the hot sun and yet make you stand out in the crowd.
A pair of block heels will make you look taller and also add character to your outfit. Protect yourself from the sun by wearing lots of SPF and light makeup. Dress it up by adding statement jewelry as it will bring balance to your outfit if it’s on a simpler side.
In line with the upcoming festival, Zola has come up with pretty skirt sets that are so light and functional, that you can look and feel your best not just during Eid but throughout the year. As it’s one of the busiest times of the year, a breezy A-line or a circular skirt is easier to manage and still looks chic. Playing around with different silhouettes and colours is fun and helps in understanding what works for you.
Look regal in a heavy skirt with a long kurta, dupatta, and heirloom jewelry. Adding a maang-tika will make you look like an empress straight out of the Mughal era. You can also wear it with a crop top or a kurti. Adding a long, flared, embroidered jacket will add a feminine touch to the whole look. Complete your look with kolhapuris or mojari and a stylish bag.
We bet every woman, no matter the age, loves a sharara. This ethereal beauty also adds a bit of drama and that’s why it’s everyone’s favourite. They are chic and give an illusion of a lehenga. It usually consists of wide, flared pants, a kurta, and sometimes a dupatta. Shararas are super versatile and can be worn to weddings and the workplace as well. Originating during the Nawab’s era, it gained popularity during the ’70s and ’80s, and know that they are here to stay in times to come.
Sometimes, the classics are not meant to be experimented with and that’s why this dressy and utterly feminine outfit looks best when worn with traditional jewelry. A choker neckpiece along with matching earrings will make you look no less than royalty! Add an ethnic jacket and you will be grabbing eyeballs.
You might have guessed by now that we are huge fans of feminine and elegant silhouettes. And an Anarkali suit is what comes to mind when we think of the same. As we said, do not shy away from wearing a dash of shimmer this summer. On this holy month of Ramzan, go all out and adorn yourself with anarkali suits with lurex work, hints of gota, and embroidered necklines.
Traditionally, anarkali kurtas are worn with churidar or straight pants. But since we are all about making a bold statement this season, you can wear them with shararas and look like a million bucks.
Find kurtas in our ‘Ruhaniyat’ collection that are bold, quirky, and different just like you. A kurta is the most sought-after attire and is often worn with a salwar or a churidar at any festival or occasion. A kurta can be fun and so much more. At Zola, a simple kurta is available in different silhouettes, with intricate embroideries, and swoon-worthy embellishments.
Frills are back with a bang and how! Find kurtas that are so dreamy that they can be also worn as dresses. Such interesting silhouettes like asymmetrical hemlines and a touch of shimmer and there will make you look so graceful this Eid. Accessorize with light jewelry and let your outfit speak for itself.
