Pakistani designers have had their work featured in international magazines and catwalks, as well as being worn by celebrities worldwide. With this popularity comes an increased need to know about these trends, so we’ve put together a list of some of our favorites!

Outfits In Bright Colours
Outfits in bright colors are a huge fashion trend this summer. Look for clothes that have pops of color, including your accessories to create an outfit with flair!
One way to implement these colorful outfits is by throwing on a blazer and long shirt or dress overtop the top piece you’re wearing underneath so that they peek out from under the outer layer. Not only will it fit into the latest trends but it’ll also be comfortable enough for any everyday wear!
Some key pieces we recommend include:
-a vibrant printed skirt (try festival season prints)
-bright coloured jeans
-long skirts & dresses in bold hues like burnt orange, rainbow shades or electric blue
We love anything that’s a little more out there, so if you’re feeling adventurous we recommend checking out some of these brands for even more inspiration:
-Palazzo pants from the latest fashion show by Sana Safinaz
-Printed maxi dresses from Khaadi. pk and Cabbages & Roses in Pakistan as well as India and The United Arab Emirates respectively (the best place to get your hands on those rainbow coloured clothes!)
-Bold printed skirts by Pakistani designers like Abid Bin Aqeel and Sobia Amjad designed just for this summer!
Elements That Give Off Royal Vibes Like Intricate Mughal Style Embroidery And Flared Sleeves.
-Bold, vivid prints
-Fabulous floor-length kurtas made popular by the likes of Karachi’s fashion week as well as Lahore and even in Toronto thanks to Pakistani designers like Amna Ansari who’ve created some gorgeous designs for this summer season!
This is a fantastic time to get your hands on these clothes because it’ll be too hot soon enough! We’re not just talking about Pakistan either – there are lots of online stores that sell fabulous Indian clothing from brands like Khaadi. pk which has stores all over South Asia and The United Arab Emirates too so you won’t have any trouble finding what you need no matter where you live or travel to around the world!
Pakistani fashion bloggers are all about smaller handbags this year. The latest trend is to carry a small cross-body bag or clutch instead of the oversized purses you see on TV and in magazines. It’s easy to find clutches that can also double as evening bags, so it makes sense not to lug around your whole life with you wherever you go!

Minimalist shoes were all over the runway at New York Fashion Week with celebrities wearing flats or sandals instead of heels when out in public. Bare feet have been trending lately too – it’s a simple way to take off an inch which makes tall girls even taller.
Ghararas & Shararas
Ghararas & shararas are the latest trends to hit Pakistani fashion, with many designers using them in their designs for this summer season! Gharara is a type of shalwar that has been worn by men in Afghanistan and Pakistan since at least the 16th century.
Women have also started wearing it lately because it’s more comfortable than other clothing like salwar or churidars that need strapping and tucking when you go out. The ghagra style is similar but skirts instead of pants; its popularity increased after Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor wore one on her wedding day last year – she looked stunning! Here are some things about ghararas and shararas that you should know:
– Ghararas are traditionally white, but different colours have been used in recent years.
– They’re worn with a kameez shalwar or traditional dress, or even jeans/shorts if they’re shorter than your regular pants! The loose shorts allow for more movement while the tight long shirt keeps everything modestly covered.
– It’s important to note that these garments can be expensive – many brands don’t sell them because of their cost. Be sure to do some research before purchasing one!
Banarsi & Chunri Prints
These prints are often made with cotton, silk and other fabrics that create a striking visual.
– Banarsi refers to the province of Benares in India where this style comes from. Usually woven on handlooms, these garments feature elaborate patterns and designs typically created with reds/greens/yellows or combinations thereof.
– Chunri is derived from an ancient Sanskrit word meaning “to cover” – so it’s no surprise many brides wear one over their head during weddings! If you’re looking for something more casual then they make great scarves too! A chunri also features intricate patterns but usually includes white instead as its dominant colour.
Use Of Sheer Fabric In Trousers
The trousers too are made of a fabric that is sheer, and the inner side can be seen easily. The use of this delicate material in tights for men has become popular among fashion-conscious people recently.
In Pakistan it’s not uncommon to find all sorts of fabrics used as cloths or even bedsheets, so why should we restrict ourselves to just cotton? It takes us back to our roots when handlooms were prolific and muslin was readily available! This type of clothing evokes a sense of nostalgia for some – now I’m craving my mama’s cooking 😉
Fusion wear is a very trendsetting type of clothing that combines traditional Pakistani designs with Western styles.
The fusion-style has been around for over two decades now and it’s not just in the fashion industry – artists, writers and musicians are all influenced by their surroundings so this combined look speaks volumes about our country.
It was first introduced as ‘Chai Tea’ (a kind of tea) but then morphed into something much bigger! Chai Tea became an attitude, culture or lifestyle. It no longer meant one thing but many things at once; to be chai means you’re more than your nationality because Pakistanis don’t live on only one side of the border anymore! You can find us everywhere across continents these days!
