When the countdown for Eid started, we asked different women from Instagram three questions: What are you wearing this Eid? Why did you choose it? Do you follow the trend or you stick to your style? Here are their answers along with some beautiful Eid themed flatlays. You can also share your Eid dresses with the tag #PPEidThemedFlatlay they will get featured on the instastory of @ProudPakistanii

For people like me who work in a government-run hospital where the conditions don’t allow you to dress up on a regular basis, eid comes as a breath of fresh air. It’s the time and the chance to show off my aesthetic sense (if I may) and the oh-so-simple style.
I don’t like to gaud up even on these occasions, call me lazy or low maintenance. For me, it’s more about comfort and what suits my body-type rather than what’s ‘in’ these days. Minimalism is the way forward, my friends (and foes).
This eid, I’ll be wearing this simple light pink embroidered kurta that I bought from Gulahmed and will be pairing it with stark white bell bottoms and a crushed dupatta. The only bling you’d see would be my watch and that pearl necklace that I adore, probably a few rings and a pair of jhumkis too, if I’m feeling a bit fancy on the day.
However, what I don’t compromise on, is my lipstick and my perfume. I believe that the right lipstick can make you stand out, no matter what you’re wearing. And hey, who doesn’t like to smell good and feel good?
Simple girl, simple dreams.
If anyone would like to know where I got all these things from, here’s the list:
Watch: Marks & Spencer
Contour and Blush palette: Elf cosmetics
Lipstick: Mac Ruby Woo
Perfume: Komal by J.
Necklace: Marks & Spencer

So about the Eid dress, mine is pretty casual. It is a three piece dress (only the shirt is featured) I got from Khaadi, unstitched before the whole labor rights debacle happened. (Quite honestly, I love Khaadi. it was a disappointment to know about the truth)
Khair, before you guys go all “haww haye” on how casual my Eid clothes are, let me explain. Eid is not a big affair in my family. We have very few relatives so no body visits us for the first two days at least. For that reason, I needed something super comfy to lounge around in that was not my regular pjs.
My style (if you would call it that) is definitely comfort before fashion. You would rarely see me wearing something trendy. I rely more on jewelry to up my game. I am planning to pair this with bangles and these earrings a friend got for me from Lahore. The kohlapuris are from Gulf. They are so soft it feels like you are walking on clouds. The best part is, they are super affordable as compared to the similar options on these Facebook pages.

For this Eid, I’ve picked a couple of casual kurtay from brands like Khaadi, Nishaat and Generation. Nothing very fancy or formal but easy-breezy and trendy stuff.
I’m gonna pair this ready-to-wear Khaadi shirt with straight pants, tie & dyed chiffon dupatta with all-so-in tassels, a pair of silver earings and these khussas.
My fashion statement is minimal, casual and something that speaks of elegance in terms of colors and cuts.

This year I shopped from Satrangi which had some seriously on-point stuff. The shirt is colorful and bright and I love the large sequin details on the neck. I also selected the Charisma perfume from their new line of fragrances. The necklace is a statement piece my sister got from the USA. Even though the dress has a warm tone I like mixing metals with my accessories. I don’t follow trends at all and my style is very individualized and eccentric.

I LOVE following trends so of course, these floral gharara/sharaha (huge debate in my house on which is which rn) had to be mine. I looked in other stores for a shirt but in the end, Satrangi ended up being where I got my whole outfit. I never wear pink but something about this ensemble is making me want to apply the pink nail polish and do soft rose gold makeup. The silver jhumkas (Rs 150 from Gulf – Bargain!) complete the look which I call Fatima Jinnah Chic.
