Shalwar Kameez Styles this Wedding Season, This is the season of weddings, or as we like to call it “Shaadi season” and everyone is excited about all the fun and glamour, but also slightly worried about what to wear. We all know how exhausting wedding clothes shopping can be and don’t even get me started with the prices. Although, let’s not forget that it’s not all bad and there are many clothing brands where you can find the right salwar kameez design in the right price bracket, one of my favorite options is Shahzeb Saeed. Every year there are many new designs which are considered in fashion, usually promoted by various Pakistani fashion designers such as:
There has been a lot of involvement of embroidery in kameez design in new shalwar kameez trends. One of them is the embroidered waistcoats. They look very festive and colorful, making sure that girls aren’t the only ones who look like they are actually attending a wedding. Equality for all! These are worn with black and white kurta shalwar usually and they make the plain boring clothes stand out.
If you think printed and embroidered waistcoats are too much for you, fear not! It is no doubt that plain waistcoats are evergreen. So don’t worry about looking outdated, instead, embrace the classic look. Plain corduroy or wool waistcoats are the best options for this cold season. Silk and cotton ones are more common during summer weddings. Moreover, a creative way to make your plain waistcoat look more festive is to include a bright pocket square and have big embossed buttons instead of plain ones.
Men shalwar kameez collar designs play an important role in deciding whether a kurta is causal, semi-formal or formal. Heavily embroidered collared kameez designs are usually more suitable for weddings and other formal events. They make you look ready in the most minimal way.
The legendary Imran Khan, our Prime Minister, is seen to opt for this look quite often. This look can be created by simply wearing a neatly properly stitched coat with your basic kameez or embroidered kameez shalwar. Again, a pocket square adds a fancy element to the outfit. This style is a great fusion of east dresses and Pakistani dresses.
Another way to change up your look this wedding season is to wear trousers with your kurta. This style is typically Indian but closely relates to Pakistani culture, too! Trousers make the whole outfit look neater and cleaner. Trousers are usually worn in white, regardless of the kameez color. This means, if you get a good quality trouser once, there is no need to get a separate one for each kameez. Savings, here I come!
In Baluchistan, men wear a very unique style of shalwar. It slightly resembles a Patiala shalwar because it is very flowy and has countless layers. This traditional design utilizes a large amount of fabric to get the right flare and layers. It is not commonly worn in other provinces, but I believe they are underrated. I feel like this type of shalwars are much fancier than the normal basic ones.
This one is controversial, yet the most viral and commonly seen in many fashions shows this year. Embroidered shawls for men is the future! Yet many people are not comfortable with this idea as it is thought to be feminine. Although, this new idea brings more color and glam to men’s wear, which has been missing for far too long.
