Bring back old world charm with an angrakha this Eidul Fitr.

The traditional upper garment overlapping to the left or right can also look super chic and elegant for an Eid function; it's not just weddings.

Celebs such as Amna Ilyas and Maya Ali burst onto our Instagram feeds in vivacious angrakhas last week. Think lime greens and canary yellows - perfect for a summer Eid.

And it's all yellow!

Yellow is such a fresh colour to beat the heat. And it'll surely make you stand out from the crowd as well.  We love how Mann Mayal beauty Maya Ali sported this canary yellow matching set while promoting her new film Paray Hut Love on Jeeto Pakistan this week.

The star looked simply magical in the Faiza Saqlain 'Aftaab' angrakha  and we think it's a perfect ensemble for a dinner event or fancy daytime soiree.

Khussas remain favourite footwear for Eid

Green with envy

Lime and mint greens are sights for sore eyes this season and we love how Zinda Bhaag stunner Amna Ilyas rocks this traditional look. The star is seriously doing justice to this dazzling Ansab Jahangir number by accessorising it with bespoke traditional earrings - ideal for any occasion.

A matching dupatta with frilled edges really pulls this ensemble together,while giving it a stylish edge.  Amna also seems to know ivory khussas are oh-so-in right now and the top pick for Eid wear. They made the perfect accompaniment to the gorgeous look.

Magnificent in magenta

If you're looking for something just a little more striking and dramatic, you can't go wrong with this festive luxe magenta outfit that is sure to turn heads!

Meera looks like a queen in the same Ansab Jahangir three-piece as Amna wore.  The gold detailing gave it a little more dazzle and we love how the star matched it with statement earrings.  We are sure this outfit would be the perfect formal evening piece!

Which of these beautiful styles will you be personalising for Eid?
