The time for merry making, lavish feasts, and celebratory fashion is at hand. A month of prayer and fasting draws to a close, making way for the grand festival of Eid. For a festival centred on family reunions, get-togethers, and let’s not forget new clothes, dressing up takes the front seat. While women have countless blogs and magazines for style tips at their disposal, what about the men? As the shopping bonanza heightens, our tips will help you steer clear of any last minute scavenging for the perfect outfit and ace your Eid style game with ease.
Kurtas and salwars in crisp white or neutrals are the norm for morning prayers. Make sure they are freshly ironed for a polished look. For after prayer festivities, opt for long kurtas in bold colours that add a modern twist to traditional dressing. Later in the day as you retreat to casual settings with friends, turn the heat down a notch with short kurtas or Nehru jackets paired with jeans for a trendy vibe. Click the images to shop.
Boat shoes and loafers not only add to your comfort, but also add a laidback twist to the entire look. That said, nothing complements a traditional ensemble like a pair of mojris or Kolhapuris. Click the images to shop.
