What to wear in this Ramadan heat.

The holy month of Ramadan is time of self-reflection for many of us. Muslims all around the world fast from sunrise to sunset to help us train our self-restraint and feel with the needy. It is a month dedicated to charity and kindness unto others. I feel that although for most of the year I don’t think about it twice, Ramadan is a month in which I dress a little conservatively- out of respect to others. Most of the Middle East has dealt with quite an early summer, with heat waves reaching as high as 39 degrees in Amman. To those of you living in the Gulf, this might seem normal. However for us living in Jordan, it’s sometimes intolerable. We’re not used to weather like this you see, our bodies do not adapt well to this type of heat. But nonetheless, we’re grateful for the sunny weather because our winters have been blistering cold and icy over the past couple of years.

So in this scorching heat, what do you wear? I’ve opted for blouses over lightweight jeans. Today I wore a maxi dress under a little denim jacket with cropped sleeves. I feel that a white blazer is a Ramadan essential in this heat because it’s casual and it’ll keep you cool enough at the office, and you can also dress it up with heels for a chic iftar outfit. I especially like this Zara one below.

Kaftans and abayas are also an option, especially if they’re made out of lightweight silk. They’ll keep you cool and you’ll look like you’re dressing for the occasion, which is always a good thing. Invest in a good quality Kaftan because it will come in handy for a friend’s henna night or Katb Ktab celebration.

Nothing says easy breezy like a pair of espadrilles. I love this Silver mesh Stella Mccartney pair because they can air out and the metallic tone matches practically any beach kaftan or bikini. I hope you’re all having a wonderful Friday afternoon! X
