Eid Inspiration: Daytime

Eid doesn't necessarily mean having to buy an entire new outfit. If you're out and about all day long, you can easily bring together items you already have to put together a unique combination. This satin-feel dress from H&M is a bargain at £19.99, but I found you need to size up a bit for it to be a loose fit. Just add smart trousers, a pretty pashmina and jewellery to your taste.

One of the easiest ways to change your look for daytime-to-evening is by changing the way you wrap your hijab. If it's a simple shayla wrap during the day, just scrunch it up into a flower at the side, or add pleats by making small folds in the fabric. It will instantly change the feel of your outfit, without you having to carry around any extras!


Pink dress £19.99, H&M; rustic sequin pashmina £15.99, Scarf World; black long sleeve top £7, Dorothy Perkins; treasure trove tassle bag £28, Accessorize; mixed bangles £8, ASOS; black wide leg trousers £20, Dorothy Perkins; black patent bow stripe court shoes £28, Debenhams.

This is so lovely! My nearest H&M is quite a drive, but may be worth the effort for something so pretty. I like the whole outfit as well.

I tried the dress, but I dont like the material- it makes u looking a little bit fat:-(( The shoes look great and the rest of the outfit too.

Glad you like it!

Ina, I tried the dress and I thought it was quite flattering! Different body types will differ of course. As for the shoes, I have them, though I don't think I can survive with them on all day on the wards :D
