Become an Oriental Diva this Ramadan

I love it when Viktoria (@Viktoria_Abduly) shares with me her shopping finds!

This time however it was a bit different. It had an oriental feel. In fact, in Dubai the whole fashion scene transforms beautifully during the holy month of Ramadan, with new looks you usually don’t find anywhere else in the world!

As it is a time for inner peace and modesty, people tend to reflect that more in their outfits. But that doesn’t mean they don’t have to look stylish!


Viktoria picked this beautiful Kimono from Zara. She says the best way to wear it is with skinny jeans, a simple tee and a pair of killer heels. And if you really want to stand out, why not add a colored turban to the outfit!


Maxi kimonos gives you a bohemian look that is so trendy this summer. I think this outfit can be worn at any time and for any occasion. Unless you have a meeting with your CEO, a kimono always wins over a blazer. The colors and print schemes are endless and they don’t overwhelm your figure you while still keeping you covered.


And of course you can wear it when Ramadan ends with shorts, cute sandals and a boho bag.

In the spirit of Ramadan, we say embrace your Oriental diva!
