Queen Rania’s Maroon Velvet Kaftan Is the Perfect Eid al-Fitr 2022 Outfit

Spending quality time with friends and family is one of the best parts of the Holy Month of Ramadan, and for Queen Rania of Jordan, Ramadan 2022 also brought the opportunity connect with the people of her homeland through a series of special iftars and suhoors.
As we inch closer to Eid al-Fitr, the royal has been stepping out more than usual, making the most of the last few days of Ramadan with back-to-back outings. Most recently, Her Highness was seen breaking her fast with “a group of accomplished young women and in the presence of Princess Rym Ali, Princess Ghida Talal, Princess Wijdan, and other princesses at the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts.”

Queen Rania styled her velvet kaftan with diamond and ruby earrings
For her evening out, Queen Rania chose a festive look that’s perfect for Eid al-Fitr celebrations. Her pick: a rich velvet kaftan in deep maroon, which came with hot pink detailing along its neckline and cuffs. While lightweight kaftans are a winning pick for summer months, the royal’s plush pick is ideal for evening outings, and is bound to come in handy later in the year, when temperatures drop once again.
Queen Rania is not one to do things half-heartedly, and this mindset also extends to her ensembles. For her most recent iftar, she accessorized her regal kaftan with the most unique earrings—a contemporay design that seemed to be embedded with diamonds and pink rubies that seamlessly complemented the hue of her clothing. That, paired with rosy makeup and her trademark fresh blow-dry, made for a fail-safe iftar look. Take notes before you step out for your next meal.

Ramadan is officially here, and with it, comes a festive mood that’s almost palpable in the region. With Covid-19 restrictions finally a thing of the past, 2022 is giving all the chance to make the most of the Holy Month with special suhoor and iftar gatherings, many of which may require an ensemble that’s as eye-catching as it is comfortable.
Cue the evergreen kaftan—a classic that’s long been a favorite for a reason. Most often crafted using breezy fabrics like cotton, silk, linen and organza, kaftans manage to tick all the right boxes for festive occasions. While their relaxed silhouettes allow ease of movement, the right cut can do wonders, creating an elegant shape that no other outfit can quite compete with. And for the modest dresser, the kaftan delivers time and again with its demure aesthetic. What more could you ask for?
As we dive into one of the most joyous and meaningful times of the year, Vogue Arabia takes you through some of the best kaftans to invest in this Ramadan.

Pastel kaftans for suhoor
As temperatures continue to rise, now is the ideal time to show light-as-air fabrics and soothing sorbet hues some love. Alaïa’s minty blue pick makes the ideal choice, as does Honayda’s soft pink pleated kaftan, which comes with edgy embellishment around the neckline. Love a little lace? Don’t miss Miguelina’s biscuit brown kaftan, or spotlight minimal accents with Yasmin Al Mulla’s beige number, dotted with delicate silver moons. Andrew Gn’s buttery yellow kaftan—complete with feather detailing—is another must-see for anyone who loves a little drama.

Vibrant kaftans for Ramadan get-togethers
There’s no denying the appeal of jewel tones, so why not pick a bold kaftan this season? Celebrate the Holy Month with your nearest and dearest in a light—yet impactful—creation like Halpern’s tangerine and pink color-blocked piece, or echo the beauty of paradise with an emerald green Oscar de la Renta. Pearla’s deep purple kaftan stands out for its innovate use of mustard accents, while SemSem‘s ombré kaftan, which runs from coral to midnight blue, gives a nod to the beauty of Ramadan sunsets.

Iftar-ready embellished kaftans
Every now and then, more really is more. For your next formal iftar gathering, why not celebrate the Holy Month with an embellished kaftan? Bthaina’s ivory and gold number paints a regal picture, while La Vie Style House caters to those who never shy away from a strong dose of sparkle. Prefer tried-and-tested hues? You can’t go wrong with Noor Al Bahrani’s subtly sequined black creation, or Selma Benomar’s grey kaftan, featuring intricately placed layers of tassels.

Let Karen Wazen’s Modest Black Maxi Dress Inspire Your Next Suhoor Look

Let Karen Wazen’s Modest Black Maxi Dress Inspire Your Next Suhoor Look

Dressing up for a suhoor gathering calls for a look that is as comfortable as it is elegant, and Karen Wazen nailed just that with her recent outfit. While in Sharjah attending a suhoor hosted by Dior, the entrepreneur picked the breezy silhouette of a maxi dress in black, a fail-safe color for evening wear. The dress, made entirely with a shimmering fabric, was picked from the fashion house’s dedicated Ramadan capsule collection and features a modest high neck, and full-length sleeves.
Wazen kept the accessories to a minimum as one does for a laid-back late evening in Ramadan, and opted for a pair of dainty drop earrings, and a black Lady D-joy bag. Sporting a sleek blowdry, the mother-of-three went for a neutral monochrome makeup look, which included a subtle brown eyeshadow, peach-toned blush, and a matte brownish nude lip.

The day was particularly special for Wazen, who also celebrated her birthday on April 10. Taking to Instagram to share her gratitude for the birthday wishes, Wazen posted pictures of herself celebrating the day with her husband Elias Bakhazi and their children. This time, Wazen was seen in a pared-back halter neck dress in metallic green fabric, which will be perfect come party season, or for nights out in summer.
