For Pakistani fashion, Eid is a separate season that needs its own collections. Every year some new trend dominates our billboards and Instagram feeds but the classic white kurti never goes out of style. It is perfect for every weather; it can help combat the infamous summer heat or look crisp against a romantic monsoon rain-drenched background. However, its versatility does not end there. It can be paired with a whole array of different shoes, bags, and accessories to create an outfit which represents your amazing personal style. Here is how I would take on styling a white kurti for an effortless Eid look:
First Moodboard: Splash of Colour
I would pair an all-white ensemble with the coolest Roger Vivier Monochrome Podium Block Heels. The understated black and white pattern of these shoes is different enough to stand out from the crowd and the large silver buckle satisfies the hardware enthusiast in me. The Kate Spade Rogue Pink Cedar Street Mini Cross body Bag is perfect for breaking up the colour palette. This solid pink bag adds pizzazz to the outfit and, can easily be worn cross-body while traipsing through the city attending one daawat after another.
Second Moodboard: Let the Shalwar Decide
After a long reign of tights then straight pyjamas, shalwars are having a fashion moment again right now. I would let my shalwar define the colour palette of my outfit and accessorized with a Charles and Keith deep orange shoulder bag that stayed within the same colour family. This bag is the perfect size for your phone and a small makeup pouch you might need for touch-ups throughout the day. The Burberry Alicia beige leather heels are a closet essential! They seamlessly go along with any outfit, including this one, adding a little touch of elegance.
Third Moodboard: Contemporary Cool
White Kurtis look great with denim jeans, just ask the boys! To style this look for Eid I would pair a white kurti with painted or embroidered jeans. This unexpected element of casualness allows us to go a bit extra with our accessories. Like this oversized New Look black and white striped clutch. The Michael Kors black rhinestone watch and Charles and Keith black dual strap laser-cut block heels are the perfect combo to complete this outfit. The comfortable block heels can be worn throughout the day with ease and the watch will ensure you are always fashionably late to all the parties.
I hope these inspire your looks this Eid and of course Eid Mubarak and happy shopping!
