Are you worried about what you’re going to wear this Eid-ul-Azha? Or perhaps, the plethora of brilliant designers and brands with their oh-so-amazing eid clothes has sent you in a state of utter confusion and puzzlement? If this rings true for you, it’s time to stop worrying and start heaving a sigh of relief-for we have shortlisted a few top brands and stores that have a beautiful Eid collection for you to choose from. All you need to do is, head out to the nearest mall if you’re in Karachi and if not, you just have to put social media to good use!
To make it even easier for you, we have laid down our top picks for first, second and third day of Eid. Now you don’t need to worry about anything except for the price tags, of course!
Day 1 a.k.a The-Day-You-Go-All-Out-On-Clothes
Once you’re done stocking up your freezers with the never-ending meat supply, chances are you’re possibly going out on a big family BBQ lunch or dinner. In either case, you might want to dress up and go heavy since it IS the first day after all and you also want to stand out from the crowd. To be able to do both, Sana Safinaz has come up with the perfect wardrobe for you which will neither give the impression that you are off to a bling-bling wedding, nor will it seem like you couldn’t care less about Eid. With the most gorgeous colors and an ideal blend of not-too-heavy and not-too-simple, SS (might as well call it that) has a great collection to offer to you! You’ll find straight shirts and pants and also long, draping gowns and capes that will add a touch of glamour to your entire look. They have majorly played around with colors like black, green, gold, white and pink which are perfect for your first day of Eid.
Day 2 a.k.a The-Day-You-Tone-It-Down-A-Bit
Let’s assume you’ve been invited to yet another BBQ lunch or dinner on the second day of Eid. Or perhaps, you’re hosting one at your place. In the latter case, you definitely want to look bedazzling since you’re the host. You also don’t want to dress too much for you’ll probably be running in and out of the kitchen but yet want to look trendy and stunning. Well, fret no more because Agha Noor is here to your rescue with their soft hues of pinks, whites, peaches and greens. Whether it is a day event or a night one, the clothes from their Eid collection are perfect from colors to dress-cuts and styles. While their clothes are very simple in terms of the design and cuts; the colors, the work and the embroidery will probably make you fall in love with them. If you still feel like it’s too simple for Eid day 2-all you need is a dash of makeup, dangling earrings and a pair of heels-and you’re good to go!
Day 3 a.k.a The-Day-It-All-Ends …or not!
While for many people, the third day marks an end to Eid celebrations and festivities, for now you’re probably overdosed with meat and BBQ and want to sleep all day. For many others, the party’s still going smooth and strong! If you belong to the latter category, don’t worry, Sapphire (who hasn’t heard of that one!), has the prettiest Eid collection for you which not only signals an end to the three-day ‘Sacrifice Feast’ but also leaves you in awe over their gorgeous clothes! Their Eid collection this time is possibly the simplest of all, yet, so chic and trendy. They have centred their clothes on soft, pastel shades like beige, aqua, light-green and dull-gold which are not only pleasing to the eyes but are also simply charming. With one exception, however, where they have gone really bold; the deepest of maroons with gold embroidery (we couldn’t help but go ga-ga on this piece!) Alongside this stunner though, Sapphire also offers a massive collection of low-key Eid kurtis, trendy pants and silk scarves which you can easily drape around your shoulders if you have a casual day out with friends on the third day.
We hope it’s safe to assume that you are now super relieved and have your Eid wardrobe all figured out. All you need to do is go grab your favorite piece before it’s too late and save yourself from any regrets! If, per se, you’re still confused and don’t know what to do, we suggest you still head to these stores and view those gorgeous collections for yourself! Happy shopping and a Happy Eid Mubarak in advance!
