Plus Size Fashion | Ready For Eid


Ramazan is my most favourite month of the year. I love the whole spirit of the festive month. It is also the month of retrospection and deep connection with Allah. And like every Ramazan this one too has been a month of finding the answers I have been looking for.  
It was in Ramazan of 2011 that I decided I want to start a fashion blog and pursue a career in fashion blogging. Some of my life's biggest, best and life changing epiphanies have occurred during Ramazan.
As much as I wish Ramazan lasted a little longer, I enthusiastically look forward to Eid celebration. It is a great way to spend time with family and relatives and celebrate the completion of yet another Ramazan.

Past experience has taught me to always plan in advance for Eid. With the last minute Eid rush, it becomes next to impossible to get anything stitched in time for it. This year I decided to skip my Eid staple, the traditional kurta chuddidar, and opt for something a tad bit different. Instead of getting a full suit stitched I decided to play mix and match and go with an all new Eid look for myself.

While browsing through one of my fave plus size shopping sites, Amydus, I found this bright yellow printed kurti. I loved the traditional silhouette with the on-trend off- shoulder sleeves. The kurti was a break from the run of the mill kurti without being too dramatic. The bright colour made it an ideal for a festive day. And since the kurti had no embellishments it could easily be styled post Eid for different occasions.

When it came to pairing the kurti I had a slight conflict. Originally I wanted to pair it with blue palazzo pants. Since I wanted a different look I finally opted for a printed skirt instead. I love mixing prints and the final look was just what I had in mind for Eid.

I love the fluidity and playfulness of the look. A classic Indian look with a modern stylised twist. And post Eid I can wear this look for any day monsoon wedding function. One of the main reasons why I opted for the kurti is because of its versatility. It can easily be paired with a number of bottoms as well as be layered up.

Like always I have had a wonderful and blessed Ramazan and I can’t wait to celebrate Eid. Here’s wishing you all Eid Mubarak. May the blessings of Ramazan carry forward year round.
