With Pakistan in the full throes of summer, casual and light summer wear are the preferred attire of choice. Most people like to wear casual dresses as it is the most fuss-free option out there. Whether you are at home, college, university, office or a get-together, casual outfits are must haves.
One of the most crucial casual haves is denim — the most gung-ho dressing option as it comes in many attractive styles and designs and can be suited to various body types. You can choose to buy a denim kurta or a plain button-down denim shirt; pair it with pants or jeans and you are all set.
Another casual dress that is laid-back, yet trendy, is a jumpsuit. If you are on the petite side, a casual jumpsuit will flatter your frame. Jazz it up with a jacket or a shrug if you want to wear it to a formal get-together. Recently digitally printed jumpsuits are all the rage in Pakistan; it’s eclectic, edgy and a sure-shot style statement.
Among casual dresses, prêt and lawn wear are evergreen. Go for light pleasing colors like pastels and greens to keep the summer spirit alive. Self-prints are attractive and comfortable; avoid embellishments. Pair it with tulip shalwar, cigarette pants, or even dhoti shalwar; the hippest kid on the block. You can also choose to wear a kurti (short shirt) instead of a long kameez with jeans underneath.
With the wedding season at its peak, many are spending tons of money on new outfits for the party. Before you burn a hole in your pocket, keep the wallet at bay and attempt to flex your creative bone. You can get ravishing outfits made with just a little more time and effort with your tailor. Make a shopping excursion to any mall; you will see a range of frills, laces and ribbons that can metamorphose any dress. Pick out your preference (remember to keep it casual yet chic), brainstorm the style with your tailor and you will have a wedding dress.
This summer is all about languid attire and playful colors. The season wants us to loosen up so play up your fun side. Go for casual dresses which allow you to remain in your comfort zone but still look chic!
