Eid exclusive

From floral embroideries to standout digital printing, take notes on what to wear this Eid

After almost live months of observing social distancing during a nationwide lockdown, it is time to indulge in Eid festivities at home. Whether you are dressing up for an intimate dinner with your immediate family or your Instagram feed, here are the designer-approved looks that will make a statement.

Prints and embroideries in florals are evergreen and as they bloom into fashion we see a charm of pretty ethnic wear apparels also wrapped up in their vales radiating the beauty of floral prints from simple tulips to small sunflowers printed all over or the statement isolated print of blossom. So this Eid, opt for floral printing and embroidery. From bold floral prints to vintage themed floral garden prints is a good choice to wear this Eid. This season’s florals come in soft pastel colours and vibrant hues, all of which are some variation of the garden theme. Soft floral prints offer a touch of femininity to warm weather style so you can bring out your girlish charm with every outfit and accessory you wear. Fashion’s ongoing love affair with floral prints continues in the Eid season with a myriad of designers bringing their take on the iconic pattern. 

While the floral print trend has been in full bloom for as long as we can remember, digital printing has also managed to make a mark in the fashion scene this festive season. With the passage of time the latest trends of digital print shirts have been gaining the heights of fame and attention amongst women. The summer season in Pakistan is in its prime time and the last thing you would want to wear is a heavy, embellished outfit for Eid. But if traditional is the theme and you don’t want to look underdressed, that’s where digital prints come to the rescue. 

There are limitations as to what an artiste can print by hand. But when it comes to technology, sky is the limit. There are a whole range of patterns available in digital printed outfits. Patterns inspired from nature are the hottest trend right now in digital printed attire. Like any fashion trend, getting the accessories right is important here too. If you are going for such minimal prints, you can jazz up your look further by adding chunky bracelets and rings and you can also take a spin of traditional by opting for kundan jewelry and jhumkas.
