Trend spotting: 5 trends on the PLBW19 runway we can’t wait to try

It’s been two weeks since the PFDC L’Oreal Paris Bridal Week wrapped up, not just leaving us geared up for the fashion weeks to follow (cue, FPW) but also itching to try the trends we spotted on the runway. Even though there wasn’t much to salvage this year on the catwalk, it was by no means a completely bland affair either. Here’s a list of 5 trends that we can’t wait to try out this winter festive season!

Unconventional draping of the classic sari


L-R: Mahgul, HSY, Tayab Moazzam, Misha Lakhani


Take a classic silhouette and make it fashion! This season, the timeless sari is in for a makeover, but one that also doesn’t take away it’s traditional touch. We love it, and can’t wait to style the sari up!


Soft florals for menswear


L-R: MNR Design Studio, Republic by Omar Farooq


Who ever said men can’t rock florals? It’s the 21st century and androgyny is the norm; thankfully, a little flora and fauna never hurt anybody!


Lots of mirrors and tassels!


L-R: Misha Lakhani, Kamiar Rokni, Asma Aslam


Lots of shimmer and glimmer, a blast from the decade gone by, but also not entirely unwelcome. We are ready for the mirror craze, and can’t wait to incorporate it in our winter festive wardrobe. #ootd!


Romantic sleeves


L-R: Saira Shakira, Zubia Zainab, Saira Rizwan, Zubia Zainab


Talk about midsummer nights, and Juliet in her balcony, with Romeo at the door, wearing a lovely gown with airy sleeves. Channel your inner Juliet with these romantic sleeve cuts!


Statement shawls/dupattas


L-R: Misha Lakhani, Sania Maskatiya, Nickie Nina, Mahgul


Ofcourse, no winter in Pakistan can be complete without spotting at least one gorgeous shawl at that one wedding. As fashion would have it, the statement shawl is making big waves and we love the snuggly, old-timey vibe of them!


Tell us what you think of these style trends, if you will be sporting them this season, and if you spotted anything that we have missed!
