Hey Ladies, Pants Are So Last Year! Shalwars Are Back In Style And You Need To Catch Up

By Arslan Athar | 18 Oct, 2018

So the Pakistan Fashion Industry goes through changes every so often. Things come and go out of fashion once every few months, but that’s just the nature of fashion. A few years back, shalwars did it’s round in the fashion world and was knocked out.

Things like the churidaar pyjama were in 

Churidaars got really popular, some plain and some with embroidery. This was a time when the shalwar was slowly being phased out.

As were ghararas, especially in the summer heat 

The trend of ghararas and shararas really pushing shalwars out.

Even for shaadi looks

Wide leg pants also became a thing 

 

There were many variants of these ‘pants’; cigarettes pants were a thing for a while. Shalwars made a quick comeback a few years back as the very en vogue, tulip shalwars. Again, the fashion cycle rendered those obsolete!

This season marked the return of shalwars, loud and bold. 

We have usually seen shalwars are an add-on to the kurta, which usually has the SAME print and color of the kurta. But, now that’s changed.

They’re not just plainthere are printed and kaam walay 

They haven’t come back in their original form, they’ve come back better

They’re definitely a new way to color block, desi style 

The rising interest in the shalwar has helped to keep the tulip shalwar relevant also 

They are quite the desi essentials

And there are many ways to dress up and dress this down 

Shalwars are a reminder of an older time, yet they’re something that can be very modern

The addition of the shalwar in the new line up of trends is GREAT. The shalwar are being reinvented and made into something that can be used in the modern era of Pakistani fashion and fashion trends.
