Fashion in Ramadan plays a major role in giving the season a distinctive character and special identity. And though Ramadan is known as a month of reflection, devotion, spirituality and worship, it is also an occasion to spend quality time with family and friends over Iftar, Sohour, or other traditional festivities.
This means that Ramadan is an occasion to dress modestly while still looking fashionable. Traditional outfits like kaftans, kimonos, and abayas, as well as duster cardigans have become an essential part of Ramadan fashion. Here are some trendy outfits to add to your wardrobe this Ramadan.
This traditional outfit is a staple of Ramadan fashion. And a floral pattern abaya can give you a bright, trendy, and simple look. It is perfect for special Ramadan occasions such as taraweeh prayers and Iftar or Sohour gatherings. A coat-style abaya is best to wear on any occasion in Ramadan and can be worn for formal and casual gatherings or at conferences and even at university.
You can add a chiffon-print kimono jacket to easily accessorise and transform your Ramadan outfit. It is perfect for layering over a basic outfit, adding an instant pop of colour and style. A chiffon-print plus-size kimono cardigan is a perfect choice for women who want to add a touch of elegance and femininity to their Ramadan wardrobe. Moreover, the plus-size option ensures that women of all sizes can enjoy this stylish and comfortable piece.
The kaftan style is timeless, and a floral design adds a touch of elegance. A long cotton floral kaftan is a great option for those looking for lighter, more breathable fabric during Ramadan. It is perfect for casual gatherings and daytime events during the holy month.
Cardigans are an elegant choice and can give an elevated but modest look to a basic outfit. They are also great to wear in Ramadan.
