Eid-ul-Fitr is the culmination of the holy month of Ramadan and the beginning of Shawwal, which is the tenth month for Islam. Muslim community around the world celebrates Eid-ul-Fitr, which is commonly known as Eid. Eid is celebrated by meeting loved ones and enjoying delicious food. The celebrations this year have been a bit different due to the deadly second wave of the Covid-19. However, on this auspicious occasion, people, especially Bollywood celebrities like DulquerSalmaan, have been spotted all decked up and celebrating Eid with their families staying indoors.
Here are some traditional Eid outfits ideas for men to try out on Eid;
Kurta and shalwar are perfect for every occasion, especially festive occasions like Eid. You can wear Shalwar and Kurta during namaz as it eases your body to move and bend freely, keeping you comfortable throughout the day. You can pick any colour of your choice. However, most men prefer white, and any pastel coloured shalwar and kurta for namaz. You can enrich the look by using accessories like a classic wristwatch and a pair of Kolhapuri shoes.
Selecting traditional outfits for Eid, Nehru jacket with kurta and churidar is perhaps the preferable outfit to wear on Eid. If you prefer a simple look, you can layer your kurta with a contrast Nehru jacket to add a monochromatic look. You can wear a leather strap watch and classic brogue shoes along with it.
When talked about ethnic outfits, we cannot avoid mentioning Indowestern for men. Fusion of Indian and Western wear, Indowestern is the perfect style for those who like both styles. It comes in different types of styles, e.g., sherwanis. Choosing a sherwani depends on the quality of its fabric. Most of the sherwanis are made of cotton and silk. On the other hand, the jacket style suit for men is ideal for men who prefer ethnic clothes more.
Originating in Afghanistan and Pakistan’s local communities, the Pathani suit is best known as a traditional outfit for the Islam community. Comes in different styles and hues, Pathanikurtas are for those who prefer to keep it a simple yet bold look. Black is a perfect colour for the Eid celebration. Pairing Mojri with it enhances the look.
Embroidered Kurta with Trousers Embroidery has a rich history in Indian culture, and different states carry a flavour of their own like ‘Kantha’ from West Bengal, ‘Chikankari’ from Lucknow etc. Get yourself dressed up in an embroidered kurta on Eid that will make you stand out in the crowd.
