Trendy Yet Traditional Shalwar Kameez Alternatives For The Not So Pakistani Lads

Festive celebrations like Eid gatherings and Mehndi events in Pakistan are all about smiles, happiness, culture, and the occasional hunt of a potential daughter-in-law. Vast parts of the umbrella of our culture encompass platters and bowls of food and vibrant coloured clothes. Talking about clothing, fashion is one factor that demands attention in our nation.

There was a time when women were the only target of trends in ensembles. But today, fashion is for men as much as it is for women. The regular Pakistani guy can pop his head into a designer store, and a perfect sherwani collared shalwar kameez can suit his needs. The same is not the case for a Pakistani lad who has been brought up abroad.

Perhaps, he’d want to stick to his jeans because of his limited understanding of a shalwar. If you’re that boy, we’re all set to make things a bit easier for you. Here are three kinds of Kurtas the that are sure to appeal the Pakistani but not Pakistani guy.

Short Kurtas


A cocktail of Western and Eastern wear, this alternative will be more natural for you to rock and would bring a smile on the face of your aunties too! Short Kurtas as those seen at Khaadi, can be worn with a pair of pants or jeans.

Printed Kurta

If the regular kurta is too mainstream for you, perhaps you can go for a printed one. You’re sure to stand out with this option! From the daily striped prints to the ones with swirling patterns and flowers, the printed kurta comes in a variety of designs.

Basic Kurta

If you’re not up for doing something different and would like to blend in the traditional look, a basic kurta would be the right choice. It comes in several designs and even more colourways, so you’ll be easily able to find one that you like.
