Beauty & Style
At the very moment, Pakistan has no particular fashion trend. You can walk into a mall wearing the 4 meter palazzo pant with a short shirt and no one will notice. And you can even walk wearing the skinniest tights and no one will notice. Of course people will notice to admire your sense of dressing but not with the notion of labeling you as an old fashioned trend disaster. The introduction of so many options for the bottom wear has been introduced by some of the western trends. We were so bored of the Shalwar kameez trend that our beloved designers dropped in the blessing of trousers, pants and shalwars of all sorts.
Though it looks a lot like the Patyala Shalwar and Dhoti Shalwar but to me it looks a lot like the bottom that Aladin wore. Well it is the amazing trend and I usually pair it with shorter kurtas.
The palazzos are the pants which are at least half a meter at the bottom. I just love these. In the scorching and sweaty heat of Karachi this trend could not be any better. I prefer pairing it with knee length kurtas in neutral or pastel colors. The palazzos are usually very printed in patterns of flowers of geometric designs.
These appear to be trendy churidaars of stretchable material. At least to me. Well these can be worn with both long and short shirts but are best suited with flowy frocks. Some stores are now even making these with embroidery at the bottom.
These have been in fashion for around five years now as far as I remember. Both lean and Heavy bottomed ladies loved this trend and pair it with longer shirts.
Good Old Shalwars:
I missed wearing them so asked my tailor to make a few for me this summer. The best is to make the Painchas wider but actually depends on your personal choice. Having a few neutral colors a great saver for no-time-days. Colors such as white, black, blue, red, green and yellow can be paired with almost any dress in the matching color chart.
The trend seem to have faded with time and is now replaced with the tights but formal dresses are still paired with churidaar pajamas. These look very elegant with both short shirts and long shirts as well. Dresses like anarkali and pishwas also are often worn with these.
