Ramadan, the most important time of year for Muslims all over the world, is here. Ramadan is a period of self-reflection, creativity and introspection typified by fasting, prayer and reflection, but it is also a joyous time of social events and reconnecting with loved ones. Whether it’s a family Iftar or a Sohour with friends, Ramadan is a period that requires you to always look your finest — you never know when someone might pop round or where you’ll be invited to next.
In honour of this important month, we’ve put together our top tips for getting your little angel’s Ramadan style right with minimum stress.
1. Plan Ahead
Ramadan is a time of preparation and careful planning. Throughout the month, Muslims all around the world reflect on their faith and await Eid and its promise of spiritual renewal and refreshment. But that’s not the only bit of planning required throughout this sacred month. There are meal plans, seating plans and social plans — and as the saying goes, “fail to prepare, prepare to fail”. If you’re fasting, you’re more prone to be tired and stretched thin throughout the day, so you need to take every precaution to make life as easy as possible while you dedicate yourself to spiritual reflection. But have you ever thought of planning your little girl’s outfits?
Try planning a few key outfits each week for different events and hang them up in preparation for whenever you need them. Then, regardless of whoever turns up or what invites you receive, you’ll be ready with a charming outfit for your little girl. A little forward planning goes a long way. Not only will this save time and stress, but it’ll also ensure that your little girl looks impeccable throughout the season.
2. Keep It Simple
Ramadan is a month of sober reflection and modesty. Unlike the elaborate and flashy dressing at Eid, a more simplistic and muted approach to styling works better during this month. Think block colours, classic cuts and statement dresses.
Our navy blue flower girl dress is a perfect choice for a more formal Iftar or Sohour. In a classic navy blue colourway and featuring a soft skater silhouette, it’s a thoroughly modern twist on a fashion classic. The delicate pleated balloon-hem sleeves, applique flowers and luxe velvet ribbon add a flourish of character and flair that’s ideal for this season. For older girls, our green lace elegant dress is a charming option. Showcasing a gorgeous jade green palette — a holy colour in Islamic iconography — and made from bespoke lace fabric, it’s a real head turner. The fluted satin cuffs and full-length sleeves also make this a good style choice when visiting the mosque.
The best part about keeping it simple? Getting your little one dressed is much quicker when you take away the jewellery and elaborate accessories, so you have more time to focus on other things.
Ramadan is a busy time for the Muslim community. Not only are there the family gatherings and friendly get-togethers, but there’s also a heightened impetus to pray and attend the mosque. It goes without saying that praying in a full ball gown with puffy sleeves isn’t ideal, so be practical. If you plan to attend the mosque followed by a family get-together, pick an outfit for your little girl that would work for both occasions.
Loose-fitting, breathable and flexible clothes are the best choice. And depending on where in the world you’re, don’t forget about the heat — there’s nothing like a flustered little diva to ruin a family celebration.
