Re-style your Old Salwar Kameez Ideas

  1. Mix Match Salwar kameez

The easiest way to add variations is to simply break up the sets of your salwar suits from bottom wear to the top kameez.

  • Wear your Patiala with your long kameez which may be plain or embroidered. You don’t need a dupatta with this to give it a western feel.
  • Style up your Pakistani salwar kameez with a nice pair of ankle pants or cigarette pants in silks to give it a Westernized charm instead of wearing the churidars or palazzo.
  • Again style your short or knee-length kameez or  Anarkali tops with palazzo for a pretty edgy look.
  • Re-style your Kameez tops, in Anarkali or straight cut with pairing a nice lehenga to complement the whole look for a sangeet evening. Use a nice embroidered dupatta with a tulle or silk lehenga in plain for the best effect.
