The three-day PFDC Sunsilk Fashion week frenzy came to an end on Saturday, and we’re wondering if the madness was worth it? Fashion weeks are supposed to introduce trends that dictate our sartorial choices for the next few months and while this edition was not exactly a ‘trend-setter’, it did help us take the very important decision: Should we or should we not throw our tulip shalwars out yet?
We sorted through albums and albums of designer wear to find out trends that rocked the ramp last week.
A Striped Affair
Those clean-cut stripes are perfect for the summer! Sport them on your tops, gharara pants, culottes or boot legged pants and FTW.

The Power of Yellow
If you think yellow isn’t for everyone? Think again. From bright yellows to mustards and marigolds, top designers show us various ways to incorporate this cheerful, but tricky hue from day to night.

Befriend Those Ruffles
Big or small, adorning tops, or spiraling along lowers; ruffles are trending big time and there is no denying that. Embrace them whole-heartedly if you love to stay fashionable.
This season, statement pants are not about print but about bows, ruffles and volume.

Show that Shoulder
The fashion world is still obsessed with the shoulders! But instead of giving us the cold shoulder this time around, they’ve decided to focus on just a single one.

Black and White Makes Everything Right
Monochrome is always in, and this season, even more so. Kaftan tops, organza wraps paired with gharara pants, casual suits, and tees paired with asymmetrical skirts – you can rock this combination in multiple ways.

Turn Up The Volume On Those Sleeves
If your sleeves are not voluminous, trust us, you are far, far away from nailing the style game.

Bows Are More than just Disney
Sport them around your waist, on your pants, on your sleeves, or around your neck; bows are cute and no more limited to your daughter’s hair band.

Luxury Meets Sport
Sporty side stripes grace formal lowers and you are not allowed to shy away from them.

Tinge of Fringe
Resort to extra long fringes when you need some drama in your look.
