S.O.S. Mrs B. – Ramadan Kareem

This week the Holy Month of Ramadan will start.
For Muslims this means 30 days of fast. But also 30 days of Iftars and Suhoors, events, meetings with friends and family.
Ramadan can be a great experience also for non Mulsims. It’s a period of joy, parties and celebration.
Of course there are few rules to keep well in mind during these weeks such as to avoid to drink and to eat in front of Muslims during the day (fasting is not easy, we don’t want to make their experience worst drinking a fresh juyce or eating a double Big Mc in front of them!). Women (and men!) should dress a bit more modestly than normal.
Iftars and Suhoors can be really moments of celebration! Women are beautifully dressed up for this occasions.”Ladies only” events are more than usual and you can get the chance to be invite to one of these.
What to wear?
Arabic women normally dress up with jalabyas and caftans. There are beautiful jalabyas, very colorful and hand embroidered. Pieces of art I would say. But also a bit expensive. For expats like me, we know that once we will be back in our home countries we won’t have many chances to dress up ourselves with these beautiful dresses, so maybe we can’t avoid to invest to much money on these particular jalabyas.
But said that there are jalabayas for every budgets, Mrs B.’s suggestion is to opt for a caftan. It’s very easy to re-adjust a caftan for other occasions less “arabic”. Caftan can be glamour enough for a summer party or very useful at the beach.
So here two options for two budgets. Choose yours, dress up yourself and have fun!
Ramadan Kareem!

Both of those looks are fabulous! Love the dress on the right and that pink clutch on the left. Ramadan is a great time for togetherness. It's great that you respect and share traditions of other cultures! Thanks for a great post!
