Ramadan ladies' fashion guide
How to look chic but modest during Ramadan
Ramadan is a great time to embrace modest wear, which has been trending season after season on international and regional runways from Paris Fashion Week to Dubai’s Fashion Forward. Maxi dresses, kaftans, and abayas have been in style like never before. So here are 10 modest choices with subtle, classic and edgy touches. We love Kaftans for Ramadan fashion because they’re traditional, conservative, and come in countless colours and designs. We especially like this pink and gold piece by Haya's Closet which is available on Namshi.com. If you’re not a fan of brightly coloured kaftans, opt for one that is classic and less bold. This pale pink piece by Anaya is elegant and better appropriate for high-end iftars or suhoors. This one is also available on Namshi.com. If you’re more into traditional Arabian wear, go for something simple with a subtle touch, such as this abaya by Hanayen and Swarovski. The creation is modest yet lively with a touch of colour and hint of crystals. The newest trend in kaftans is see-through material. If you want something that is classy yet edgy, opt for this black kaftan from Haya's Closet. You can pair this with jeans, a dress, or long sleeved shirt for a more traditional look. This is available at Namshi.com. One trend that we love for abayas is pearls and florals. This cream beaded piece by UAE brand Qabeela uses pearls and florals on the edges and sleeves of the cloth. So while the Abaya is embellished, it’s not over the top and remains conservative. This piece is available at BeYou Boutique in Jumeirah Plaza. If you do want an over the top piece, we recommend this gold sequined dress by Scala. It’s conservative and traditional yet body-hugging and embellished – the perfect combination. We love such pieces for luxury iftars and suhoors. This piece is available at BeYou Boutique in Jumeirah Plaza. Another sequined dress option is this Jana Imaan piece. Considering its length and colour, it works for less luxurious Ramadan happenings as well as high-end ones. This is available at Namshi.com. If you love florals as much as we do, you would like this floral, pleated maxi dress for Ramadan occasions. We like such pieces for casual iftars with friends or family. This particular piece is available at Asos.com. This green number is our absolute favorite besides the Scala dress. It’s classy, modest and rich in colour. It’s also luxurious in its silhouette despite it being fairly simple in design. However, we do love the touch see-through wide sleeves touch. This one is by Threadz and is available on Namshi.com. If you’re looking for a high-end number suitable for a dressy occasion, this fully sequined maxi is the perfect choice. We think it’s perfect for suhoors because sequin is generally more appropriate for the night time. The dress is available at Asos.com.
