We know, we know, it hurts when a new trend emerges after lawn season stitching has come to an end but ladies, it's time to accept it: the shalwar is officially back.
Deep down, we all knew that harem/cigarette pants couldn't have replaced it for good but we say, why does it have to be an either/or situation? They can all live together like one, big, happy family!

Ammara Khan gave it a slit to shake things up.
Designer Feeha Jamshed gave it a Western makeover.

Not just local celebs; even the Bolly stars are on point with this one.
Won't it be nice to have the blood circulation back in your legs? Cigarette pants can get tight!
