Eid-al-Fitr is a time of joy and celebration for Muslims around the world, and what better way to add to the festivities than with some fashionable and fun outfits? Whether you're planning to gather with loved ones or celebrate virtually, dressing up for Eid 2023 is a must. From traditional attire with a modern twist to unique fusion wear, there are endless options to choose from that will make you stand out. So, let's dive into the world of Eid fashion and discover some cool and casual styles that will make you slay this Eid-al-Fitr 2023!
If you want to return to the 1960s, check out the Old Meets New collection by SHALS. While undoubtedly modern, they still have a familiar simplicity and wearable colours that keep them closely tied to tradition. Their goal was to create timeless and sophisticated pieces that can be worn year-round, not just for the festive season. With their Old Meets New collection, SHALS offer versatility and allows people to style the clothes to their liking, be it a more traditional or modern look. Check it out here.
Hanya's Cloudhouse Collection features light, floaty, and fluid pieces which look simple yet stunning. I love their Mekar set that will shine with a tie-back or turban hijab! Don one of their pieces for Raya and the praises you get will have you floating on cloud nine! Psst! It's on Shopee Malaysia and Singapore too! Grab one here.
Always the fashion powerhouse, Zalora boast a wide range of selections for the upcoming festival. Some of the brands to look out for include @zalia, @lubna, and @aliabrtw!
If traditional styles are your cup of tea, I believe Zalia will be your best bet! Their collection this year is a nostalgic rendition of the traditional kebaya and kurung, but you will be pleasantly surprised to find some more modern-looking styles in the range. Check out their styles here.
"Modest with a modern twist" is indeed Lubna's tagline. Their simple and modern styles are set on familiar-looking fabric patterns without looking dated. Choose them if modest yet chic is your style! Check out their Eid pieces here.
On the higher end of the spectrum, Alia B's Forever Collection begins from RM420 per piece, but they look so classy that they are fit for a Raja Permaisuri Agong (our queen equivalent, hehe!). I really love the Xahra Kurta featured in their post above that looks so flowy! View the collection here.
Kaftan dresses are another go-to style this Eid! Light and fluid pieces fill Le Vault's Desire Collection, and there are both monocoloured and multicoloured ones to choose from. Hurry! They are so popular that most are sold out and in pre-order status! View the collection here.
I was blown away upon seeing Whimsigirl's Eid Girl: Luar Biasa collection! They cleverly incorporated and fused styles of two different cultures. The piece that caught my eye was the Tai Tai Jacquard set, as the fabric gives it a subtle "Cina" look. Isn't this the perfect outfit to impress your Chinese relatives or friends?! Have a look at their truly "luar biasa" collection here.
Honestly, I didn't know there were so many modern-looking, yet aurat-covering variations on our traditional costumes until I saw the latest collections while preparing for this article! I'm sooo tempted to get a piece to wear to weddings and functions. With so many exquisite designs, I'm sure Eid 2023 will be a beautiful scene with everyone in their finest!
Eid Mubarak to all!
