As the countdown to Ramadan is coming to a close, you are probably feeling, like most of us, a physical exhaustion mixed with some nostalgia about the passing of a blessed month. The last thing you probably wish to do is shop and yet you know, at the same time, that finding a nice eid outfit is inevitable. If you are feeling the pressure to come up with a new eid trend, look no further. We asked Melanie Elturk, the founder of Haute Hijab, what is trending this summer for our Muslim sisters in duress!
Her designs this year share a feminine, romantic and elegant feel. The collection is made up of grand ball skirts, circle chiffon skirts and full dresses with tons of volume inspired by the 1950’s look. The staple of the 50s was an hourglass figure, marked by a fitted upper body with small shoulders, a small waistline, a full skirt and higher heels.
Melanie’s company motto is “We believe that as a Muslim woman, you have the right to be acknowledged. Shopping for hijabs and clothes should be easy and fun! It should leave you happy and confident, reinforcing your commitment to faith.” Take a look at five outfits she suggested for Eid 2016. We hope you find inspiration in the looks she created.
