Ramadan is here and some of you may be wondering what the most elegant ways to dress during the holy month are. For many, it is important to stay fashionable while respecting the holy month, the culture and traditions of any Muslim-majority country they may live in.

Here are a few key pieces to invest in this month.

The head accessory

Head accessories are taking the fashion world by storm; from tiaras, to flowery head bands, to bejeweled crowns and head pieces, dressing up your outfit with an outstanding head accessory will instantly elevate your style during Ramadan nights.

The caftan

Elegant and chic, the caftan is definitely a key element in your Ramadan wardrobe this season.

It’s the updated version of your traditional Abaya, shifting what is known as a traditional local dress code into something more modern, hip and trendy - without ignoring the true identity and purpose of it. Wearing it over culottes pants, a long flowy dress, pajama-style pants or a nice pair of jeans, will do the trick.


The flowy dress

We have seen them on all runways this season and in every boutique, ranging from high street to luxury.

This laid back, Coachella bohemian style is adored by all designers and it definitely has a fashion stamp in my book. Investing in a nice long flowy dress should make your Ramadan checklist the season.



The bomber jacket

The bomber jacket is a staple piece this year. It can be worn all year around and carried from one season to the other. It’s second best to a black blazer in one’s wardrobe essentials.

It will look great whether you wear it on your shoulder over a nice t-shirt and some cool jeans or over a silk slip-on dress, or even with some trendy culottes.



Final essential must have: A positive and humble attitude

We can’t stress enough how important it is to showcase your best element; having a humble and loving attitude. Not just because it’s the holy month of Ramadan but because this is the most beautiful component in your wardrobe: yourself, your kindness. It is the best accessory and the number one attribute to any outfit.

Stay beautiful, stay fashionable, stay kind! Ramadan Kareem.
