Shake Up The Shalwar

What comes to your mind when we say evergreen? Shehzad Roy, Reema Khan, and the shalwar! Just like Reema, the shalwar keeps making strong comebacks – looking beautiful than ever. This eastern equivalent of the basic black pants, is being sported by young and old alike! The Insta-obsessed crowd is finding crazy-cool ways to incorporate it into their #OOTDs while others are keeping it classic with straight-cut kurtas. Our aim today is to help you transform this staple into a statement piece! Let’s begin, shall we? The Jodhpuri Twist This ajrak inspired Tulip shalwar has a Jodhpuri feel to it, so let’s capitalise on it! We’d go with a black tank top that just about covers the belt of the shalwar and shrug into a summer jacket: It can be printed lawn, a crocheted or even an ethnic embellished one for a night out! If layering doesn’t give you ‘the feels’ then go for a straight-cut kameez – solid or printed – and go crazy with the accessories.

You grab it, immediately. Unless it is being clenched protectively by another auntie, then you let it be. Once you get hold of it, it is time to make it even more fun. We’re thinking bold colours, flare, and a bit of off-shoulder sexiness to counter the traditional handwork. Also, a short black kurta and The Alchemy jacket will totally take this shalwar up a notch on the style-o-metre. Buy this embroidered shalwar for PKR 2,698
