10 Eid Party Outfits for the busy woman by @Maikaboutik

Before you go out fetching a trendy Eid outfit you need to know what the plans are. Many people will start their eid day early by heading to the masjid, then the traditional family breakfast, then off they go hopping from one family’s house to another. Rarely do Eid parties take place in the evening and even fewer go on late at night, especially because Eid this year falls on a weekday. With that in mind, you want something comfy that spells out trendy without screaming out FOB!   We sat down with May Kazma, the creator of MaikaBoutik, to get the scoop on what is trending this year, and we also asked her to put together some outfit inspirations for those of us who will be spending all Eid out of our abode!

We asked May the following questions:

What inspires you to come up with your creations?

“What inspires me the most to create a collection is the fabric which we get to see six months ahead.  I am also inspired by my extensive travels”

What colors are trending this summer 2016?

“vibrant colors are trending but for me as a veiled woman, I prefer to go with more soft colors such as pastels, off white and black in every collection.  Gray and white also go very well together”

What is your favorite collection and why?

“Every and each collection has something special to me.  I can say that there is a favorite outfit in each collection but in general I like minimal design, warm, comfortable and reflective, that gives confidence to women”

Below are some outfits she suggested for Eid 2016
