Eid (and of course Ramadan) are a great excuse to spend some quality time with friends and family. Amongst many other things, Eid is a celebration and an opportunity to celebrate wearing vibrant clothing. There are challenges living in America finding Muslim fashion in the height of Summer, so here are 4 tips on how to style Islamic Women's Clothing for Eid 2018.
- Focused on pretty patterns
- Business casual outfits
- Eid dresses

After a month of self-reflection, Eid is an opportunity to try something new. In 2018 eccentric prints have been a big fashion focus for the year, and as Eid is falling in summer this year, why not embrace this trend and incorporate it into you Eid looks?
I think the pattern trend means great things for Muslim fashion. These colorful and decorative patterns have been incorporated into a huge range loose fitting clothing - perfect for Islamic women's clothing - and a way to stay on trend in 2018.
For example an updated floral print maxi skirt would be a great option to wear for Eid (or more generally). Gone are the days where you will only find straight black skirts as pleated skirts and prints come back into fashion. A maxi skirt will keep you feeling cool, covered and looking fashionable in the summer's heat.

Another of the most popular trends for 2018 is of course wide leg pants. Again, this is great news for Muslim fashion as there now a huge selection of fashionable loose fitting pants to wear. For summer, you've got to find yourself a pair of patterned or pastel colored wide leg pants.
This look works really well with a small block-heel to give you a little extra height and with a simple blouse.
Business casual for Eid
Sometimes Eid or Iftar requires you to attend a more formal event with the extended family. If this is the case it's really simple to put together a feminine yet bold outfit for the occasion. Flowy bell sleeves have been a popular trend in the past but I think they are great for Islamic women's clothing as its an easy way to upgrade a simple blouse. Wear your statement blouse with a pair of wide leg pants and some stylish accessories + a pop of color in your shoes.
If you're looking for some traditional Eid dresses why not swap the jalabiya for a maxi dress? There are heaps of stylish long-sleeve maxi dresses which would look great for Eid. If you're looking for a more specific shop to help with Muslim fashion The Modist has a great selection of Islamic women's clothing -I'd definitely recommend you check them out.
Casual outfit for Eid
And of course you could always incorporate the Spring/Summer trends into a more relaxed outfit for Eid. Wearing a trendy pair of flared jeans (style tips here) with a simple tunic for the summer would make the perfect look for celebrating Eid at lunch time with the family.
