Style Inspiration From An Eid In Lockdown

Style Inspiration From An Eid In Lockdown

These Muslim women aren’t letting staying at home get in the way of celebrating in style..

At the heart of any Eid celebrations are family and community. Whether that’s waking up and heading to your local mosque for the morning Eid prayer with your neighbours or seeing your loved ones at different points throughout the day.

However, an Eid during lockdown looked and felt dystopian for many of us. Unable to be joyous in real life with those we hold dear meant much of the global Muslim community went online to share their day. The one thing which remained consistent, other than our at-home banquets, were the clothes we wrapped and swayed ourselves in.

As it’s the sunnah (tradition) to wear your best clothes on Eid, Muslim women did not let something as small as a global pandemic get in the way of their outfit. Here’s some lockdown style inspiration from the Eid-al-Fitr festivities over the weekend.

EID MUBARAK HUNNIES! 🕌🖤✨ A black and gold lewk to symbolise the contrast of this years heartbreak, co-existing with the feelings of reward and blessings. While we sit out on our annual celebrations with those nearest and dearest to us, this Ramadan will truly be one to remember for years to come! Utilising all this spare time to re-charge my spiritual batteries and find solace through my moments of prayer in the most humbling of ways. During these challenging circumstances, I feel an abundance of gratitude that myself and my loved ones made it to the end of this beneficial month. Despite the fact that we’re having to celebrate from a distance, the spirit of our communal occasion remains the same. Sending big love and well wishes to everyone celebrating today! <3 ˚*•̩̩͙✩•̩̩͙*˚*·̩̩̥͙ Swipe to see my very desi quarant-Eid face mask I made using an old sock! 🤪🧦 #DesignsByBbyMilo
