Ghagra choli although a traditional hit, one can easily mix and match this attire! Our personal favorite is digging up our mother’s old but gold heirlooms and adorning them with either a plain outfit that accentuates the duppatta or a fabric that has a self-print that matches the heirloom in question. There is no greater love than getting married in legacy that has been in the family for centuries. Nomi Ansari, Ali Xeeshan, Tina Durrani and Saniya Maskatiya (to name a few) have been quite successful in their journey to come up with new mehndi outfits with different fusions.
The Anarkali is not only forever graceful but also has a timeless class to it. It comes in all varieties and colors, fully embellished or plain, it is still to date a class apart.

Kamiar Rokni and Nickie Nina always make a point to include the silhouette in their collections!

It has been making the rounds all last year and has even been popular as light casual wear.
Nadia Ellahi’s kaftan has goals 2020 written all over it. Her traditional take on the kaftan with chikankari in all shades beautiful has us going gaga. This trend is for all those who want to set themselves apart and not have the “dhol dhamaka” mehendi that we all bhangra on. It’s a much-sophisticated version.
Your best shot at modernizing any traditional outfit would be to add some modern element to it. A couple of suggestions would be puffed sleeves for your blouse or a ban regal royal collar. Peplums are also making their way back as one hit silhouette this year, along with puffed and ruffled sleeves!
