Timeless is the way forward

In Partnership: Ramadan is a time take care of yourself, reflect and put your best foot forward in all aspects of your life. Whether that be self-care, practicing mindfulness, getting in touch with family and friends, making healthy choices or making yourself look and feel good through your skincare and fashion choices.

Just like we should be continuing to practice the reflection and self-care principles from Ramadan far beyond Holy Month, the same should be said for the choices you make in the fashion department – timeless is the way forward.

In the spirit of looking and feeling your best we’ve put together seven key NET-A-PORTER buys that are not only stand-out, but will last the test of time in your wardrobe, as well as your skincare routine.

Gucci Sequin-embellished jersey gown

Firstly you can never go wrong in a statement kaftan, and making an investment in a classic piece will mean it lasts for years to come.  The Gucci turquoise gown is certainly a head-turner not only because of its bold colour, but the panel of shimmering sequins throughout the front of the ensemble makes it even more eye-catching. While it is certainly a piece no one will forget, the classic column silhouette and jersey material makes it a design that you can wear for many occasions during Ramadan and beyond.

Louisa Parris Lucas printed silk-twill maxi dress

For a more monochromatic take on the classic kaftan design, look no further than the Louisa Parris Lucas printed silk-twill maxi dress, which is exclusively available at NET-A-PORTER. The maxi dress comes in a range of different colours, but it’s the cream and black design patterned with bold geometric lines that is the stand-out. Both modern and classic, the dress cut from silk-twill will be a conversation-starter at every gathering you attend.

Marie France Van Damme striped silk-blend Lurex kaftan

Meanwhile the Marie France Van Damme striped silk-blend Lurex kaftan’s take on monochrome colours is somewhat of a twist. Whilst golds, blacks and silvers all fall into the monochrome family, the metallic tones used along with the silk-blend Lurex will making a statement, but also last the test of time.

As for shoes, you can never go wrong with a classic black.
