Are you ready to shake things up in your wardrobe? With Eidul Fitr around the corner, many of us are looking for some style inspiration. Luckily, Instagram brought the goods this week with many celebrities and bloggers strutted fresh trends, colours and breezy summer look perfect for the upcoming festivities.

It's been a busy week in the fashion world, what with the Cannes Film Festival in full swing right now. To make things easier for you, here are five looks from the last few days that we loved and wanted to share with you. Happy shopping!

Pishwas for Eid

If you haven't figured it out yet, long is in and is the look for Eid this year. Traditional wear is making a comeback with statement dupattas and embroidered detailing. Check out Iqra Aziz exude old world charm in this exquisite beige piece by Faiza Saqlain for some serious desi girl goals.


Talk about looking like a vision in white. We can't get over Zinda Bhaag star Amna Ilyas in this clean, traditional ensemble that is sure to win hearts. It's the same peshwas style with loose, braided hair and gold accents as the perfect accompaniment, as well as the red khussas. 


The turban style:

Now, we may know that Deepika's neon tulle number at Cannes was not to everyone's cup of tea but that turban is seriously eye-catching.

Dress it up or down, the turban is a great embellishment to any outfit.  It mixes summer or beach vibes with a touch of glam luxury.

Take the lead from British-Egyptian instagrammer Dina Tokio who makes waves in the modest fashion industry.  Tie a loose turban with a casual shirt or hoodie, paired with statement earrings to add that right touch of sparkle as you're good to go.

Neon is so, so in right now! This look is not for the faint hearted but fret not, you can incorporate the bright colours in more demure ways.  Think a neon handbag, sunglasses or shoes. Deepika showed us how this it's done yet again on her visit to the French Riviera.


Some celebs rocked casual neon suit as well. Take inspo from Insta-famous blogger Karen Wazen at Cannes and model Gigi Hadid.


Pretty in pink makeup 

Bright makeup is all the rage this summer. Of course, we are not talking about blue eyeshadow or bright pink lips straight from the 1980's but rather, a glamorous one-tone look for both your eyes and lips. We personally loved Diana Penty's pink makeup at Cannes last week.

Lilac ladies 

We don't know about you but lilac is the colour this year. Easily transmitted from an outfit to a pretty eyeshadow look, it is just so damn wearable and suits pretty much everyone!

We are super obsessed with this laid back polka dot look by actor Mawra Hocane, for instance.

If you're wondering how a purple eyeshadow will look on you, check out American-Sudani modest fashion blogger Shahd Batal. We are swooning over that printed scarf and jumper!
