Eid is one of the biggest celebrations for Muslims – and it happens twice a year! With the second Eid, coming up at the end of July/early August, I thought it fitting to create a few modest Eid outfit inspirations that will help you get dressed up. This Eid isn’t going to be as extravagant as the previous years because we find ourselves mainly at home or at our neighbourhood parks and beaches, but you can still feel festive in your outfit.
These three inspirational outfits are a guide to help you put outfits together that are practical, comfortable and still make you feel beautiful. I would encourage you to look through your closet to find similar shapes to re-create these looks. However, I’ve also linked each piece of clothing and accessory should you want to order any of the items.
The Neutral Look
If you’re not a fan of colour or not comfortable in colour, this outfit will be perfect for you. I love the ruched detailing on the collar of this Vestige Story blouse. It would look great half-tucked into these wide-leg trousers or left out, in case you want to conceal a food baby. These pants are also amazing because of their elasticated waist – another way you can eat to your heart’s content.
So as to not look completely washed out, opt of a coloured accessory. This apricot bag is perfect for that almost neutral look with added texture. Similarily you could choose coloured shoes or jewelry.
If you’re planning to shop your closet for this look, think about replicating the silhouette. This one is flowy and moves with you, rather than creating very harsh contrasting lines. A feature that makes this outfit modest. If you want an even more seamless look, opt of cream pants and let your accessories shine. Maybe even darken your lip colour!
For my hijabi friends, a nude scarf like this Voile Chic one would be perfect to complete the look.

The Bold Look
This look isn’t for the faint of heart. I love colour, in fact the more the better. Eid is the perfect time to get dolled up. Have a look at the colours in your closet and actually pick up and pair the pieces. You’ll be surprised which colours actually look really nice together. I recently posted a video exploring pink colour combinations. You can watch that video here.
If you are willing to invest in these Canadian designer pieces, I would highly recommend anything from Thief & Bandit. I put this outfit together starting with these pants because they are the focal point. The design is actually painted not just printed fabric. Similarly, you can create an outfit around your statement bag or shoes. Since the outfit creates a lot of impact with colour, style and print, I’ve stuck to neutrals for the accessories. Yes, a metallic bag can be a neutral so long as you style it correctly (i.e. not with other metallics or dark colours).
The mock neck tank top is purely to add more coverage, but if you’re not about that life, skip it. Also up the anti with a bold lip. My scarf choice would be this dove coloured one from Honey Hijabs.

The Laid-Back Look
If you’re just not in the mood to fully dress up or find yourself hanging out at the park, this outfit is for you. This jumpsuit has stretch so you’ll feel like you’re in jammies but look way better. For extra coverage on the arms, wear a button-up shirt on top but leave it open and knotted at the waist. Can you tell, I love waist-defining outfits?! Hijabis, opt for a jersey material scarf because they are the least fussy. Here’s a great option in olive. If you’re feeling up to it, wear simple studs to finish off the look.
To make this look even more laid-back, add a white t-shirt underneath instead of the shirt on top. I’ve rounded up five of my favourite ethically made Canadian white t-shirts, I think you’ll would love.
If you don’t own a jumpsuit, wearing the same colour on the top and bottom will give you a similar look. This outfit would also look great with a maxi skirt or dress.
