Ramadan Style: Modest Fashion Takes Centre Stage

Etoile La Boutique curates a comprehensive Ramadan edit, featuring everything from extravagant embellishments to serene pastels in luxe silks, ensuring you have all you need for the season.

As the epicenter of modest fashion, this region inspires brands to curate exclusive capsule collections that resonate with the distinctive aesthetic of the holy month. No longer overlooked by luxury fashion labels, the Middle East is now a focal point for designers, particularly during Ramadan, as they create ensembles that celebrate the occasion's beauty and richness while respecting cultural norms.

When it comes to Ramadan style, each season surpasses the last, and this year is no exception. Here are some trends we are keeping an eye on:

Metallic Finesse: From prints and embellishments to embroideries and inlays, metallic fabrics emerge as the standout trend for this Ramadan. Take for instance, Dubai-based Lebanese designer Dima Ayad – her ornate range showcases shiny maximalist themes for the season. Its modest silhouettes are decorated with either sequin embellishments or lurex needlework to celebrate the grandeur of iftar parties.

Elevated Kaftans: The flowing sleeves and unstructured silhouette of kaftans have always reigned supreme as a traditional staple for the holy month. However, homegrown labels and international brands are going above and beyond the traditional route by creating contemporary designs for the woman of today. Etoile La Boutique houses a range of exclusive pieces tailored for the season - from Taller Marmo’s iconic Fringe-Trimmed Kaftan to Dima Ayad’s Metallic Signature Kaftan, each is designed to make a statement.

Glamour First: We are talking statement capes, voluminous sleeves, and big shoulders. Crafted for those who believe more is more, these styles are sure to make a striking impression at your Eid celebration. If you seek inspiration for your extravagant looks, consider the Planelto Sequin Embellished Gown from Jenny Packham, or opt for the structured-shoulders Kandinsky Evening Gown by Greta Constantine.

Serene Pastels: In accordance with the essence of Ramadan, if you prefer wearing a subtle yet sophisticated ensemble, consider opting for luxe fabrics in pastel tones. Make your pick between Huishan Zhang’s Embellished Balloon Sleeves Maxi Dress that exudes elegance with its rich crepe construction and minimal embellishments or Taller Marmo’s Gala Rose Kaftan - a creamy crepe number with tonal ostrich feather trims.

Statement Accessories: The right accessory can liven up any understated outfit and an embellished handheld clutch can serve as that extra layer of glamour for your family dinner. Retrofete’s Alphabet Earrings could be the perfect finishing touch for a metallic tone kaftan while Rosantica’s Holli Meteora Bag will evoke childhood nostalgia with its Ramadan-inspired moon and star motifs.
