With so many options out there, selecting your favorite Dress for Eid-ul-Azha can get a little challenging. But fear not, this guide has especially been written for those who cannot trust themselves with fashion decisions.
We know you’re out there, well-hidden, hoping for a little help. So here we are!
The Chand Raat
It is the last “night” between you and your beloved – soon to be sacrificed – cattle. The most appropriate color for this occasion is black. Not because it will exhibit your sad personality, but because it is a color of solidarity. By wearing black, you show solidarity with your cattle!
A black shirt combined with that old black jeans that you haven’t washed for the last 52 weeks – may be. Of course you will be wearing this again tomorrow while you sacrifice ‘it’. It’s no use wasting a perfectly good outfit for the night before the big day.
Summarized Dress Code
• Colored Shirt(preferably black)
• Old Jeans or Trouser
Eid-ul-Azha’s First Day
Wearing a dress designed by local tailor is considered old school these days, especially when the world has become so materialistic and style-conscious. You need to spend more to earn respect. Or the children in your neighborhood are going to have a good time messing around with you.
Ideally, spend a couple of thousands in Eid Shopping Bazar on a designer kurta shalwar by Junaid Jamshed, Amir Adnan, Deepak Parwani, Gul Ahmed, Cherry’s, Almirah, Alhamra or whatever brand you can think of. Not too much though; we don’t want you going broke with this. A crisp suit goes a long way in making you appear bolder and stronger. Make sure your color choice doesn’t suggest otherwise.
After that, it is time for Bakra Eid Qurbani. Go with that old shirt you were wearing yesterday and of course the rusty old jeans. It’s going to get messed-up during the Eid-ul-Azha rituals.
Special Bakra Eid’s Feast:
Yes, every house in Pakistan has to have a feast on Bakra Eid’s first day after Qurbani, typically hosted by the eldest members of the family. The art of attending this feast is to wear the same dress you had worn for Eid Celebrations. Because it will be then packed in a cupboard for the rest of the year.
Summarized Dress Code for Bakra Eid’s First Day
• Eid-ul-Azha’s Designer Dress
• The Old Jeans & Shirt
Eid-ul-Azha’s Second Day
Hardly anyone will notice you in the morning. Most of them will either be late sleepers or will be busy in their own activities. So wearing your Special Eid-ul-Azha’s Dress (or not) will suffice the momentum of the occasion.
The Barbeque Night:
Whether it is with friends or family, it doesn’t matter. It’s the barbeque night and you need to look great. After all, all selfies cannot use prisma effect, can they? *Sigh*
Best to wear that NEW jeans or dress pant that your mom bought, coupled with a nice dress shirt. Dark colors look as good as light colors. Some personal favorites include dark blue, maroon, checkered white and other soft classics. Make the right impression!
Summarized Dress Code for Bakra Eid’s Second Day
• Formal Shirt
• Dress Pants or Jeans
Eid-ul-Azha’s Third Day
Just as the intensity of Eid-ul-Azha dilutes, so should your choice of dresses. The third day is all about relaxing. It is the last day of the festival and the routine work will likely start from the next day. Therefore, wear for the occasion.
Stay in your PJs all day. It is the third day of Eid-ul-Azha and no one really cares. Probably the only ones who’ll disturb you are the milkman & hawker. Would you really want to dress up for them?
For the night, you should wear something comfy & stylish and that is where a polo-shirt with dress pants fit in. Any colored polo-shirt with dark-colored jeans (apart from black) will make a good combo.
