8 top trends from fashion week that you need to buy right now

Nostalgic florals, statement sleeves and printed shalwars are just some of the styles we need in our closet ASAP
18 Mar, 2019

With so many showcases happening in the 3 days of Fashion Week Pakistan, it can be hard to do trend-spotting.

Fret not, we're here to help.

You know what they say, early bird takes the worm; get a leg up on the upcoming summer season with our handy list of looks that caught our eye on the ramp:

Nostalgic florals

The floral trend isn't exactly new (Zara Shahjahan is one designer who has always done it with pizzazz) but we saw a lot more of it on the ramp this year around —and we're glad! Florals are all about having fun with fashion and embracing the upcoming romance of summer.

Welcome back hot pink

Millennial pink is great, pastels are lovely but sometimes, old is gold and hot pink always stands out on the runway.

Peplum is here to stay

Love it or hate it, peplum isn't going anywhere so we may as well embrace it.

Go big or go home sleeves

We would not recommend wearing these to dinner, you will definitely get the sleeves dirty.

Otherwise, they're a go and super easy to pull off; you don't need much when you're rocking statement sleeves.

Boyfriend blazers

L-R: Alkaram, Zainab Chottani

We love mixing it up with blazers especially with occasion wear so we're glad to see more of these boxy blazers on the runway.

Solid colours

Matchy matchy ensembles are so chic.

Printed shalwars

L-R: Generation, Pink Tree Company

Coupled with two of the most fun showcases, Generation and The Pink Tree Company has made a strong case for printed shalwars.

Back details to die for

They're bringing sexy back — literally.

Only a few hundred women in Pakistan are able to afford regular designer PKR 5 lakh dresses. Masses can only watch and feel sad, OR buy cheap copies.

@Newborn After looking at the pictures of whats supposed to be fashionable now, the masses should be extremely glad that they don't have to wear these! Most of them are hilarious and not suitable for the masses anyway!

Only smaller than a fraction and than fraction of that can afford these luxuries. Common man and women can only grind their teeth and watch.
