FOUR WAYS TO JAZZ UP A SUMMER STAPLE KURTA
Trends come and go but the chikankari kurta stays. A staple in every Pakistani woman's wardrobe, there are endless ways to style this timeless piece. Here are four affordable ways to jazz it up this season and make yourself feel like a million dollars.
1.A LITTLE COLOUR GOES A LONG WAY
We’ve seen the classic white, and while it'll always be one of our favourite colours, we can't help but fall in love with these pastel chikankari kurtas that really make it the perfect outfit for the spring/ summer season. Dip your Kurta in your favourite dye and revive it completely, we’re thinking blues, pinks, lavanders and greens. Consider a sorbet lemon too, sounds almost edible doesn't it?
2. A BLAST FROM THE PAST
The 80’s are back with a bang. In this case, those beautiful Kaaj buttons, that we've seen our elegant mothers and khalas rock in photo albums would be the perfect way to stay on trend. Imagine round-necks and v-necks with the classic kundan or multi-coloured stones. Three of these and your outfit sparkles.
3. PATTERNS FOR DAYS
Whether it's floral or paisley, a patterned shalwar always helps elevate the look. It adds just the right amount of oomph to the outfit and will definitely stand out. If you're one for popping colours and different looks, this ones is for you.
4. OH, SO SOFT!
To create the perfect semi-formal look, we added a classic, brightly colored Silk Dupatta with those Kaaj buttons we mentioned earlier. For an evening out step into those peep toes or those khusas from khusa mahal to bring it together.
