Yom Kippur, or the Day of Atonement, is the most holy day of the Jewish year. While Jews of all stripes will be fasting before a big meal at the end of the day, not all of them will be dressed the same for the occasion. Designers have been getting inspired by traditional Jewish garb in recent fashion editorials. Picking up some of these modern Jewish fashions can be a great way to fully invest in the holiday, and have fun doing it.
One of the most prominent things that designers have picked up from traditional Jewish clothing is the wide-brimmed hat. This has made its way into many mainstream designer collections lately. Jewelry that is inspired by Judaism also makes a number of appearances in recent fashion collections.
Celebrate Yom Kippur 2012 and the High Holy Days in style with these Judaism-inspired fashions.
