Prêt to the rescue!

By Mahvish Ahmed

Drooling over lawn catalogues is a thing of the past and hoarding on prêt wear is the best (and a more convenient) way to go. Now that we’ve all agreed that our wardrobe is always in need of a hefty dose of prêt, the question arises: What to pick up from the racks this month?

From soothing hues to cool cuts, scroll down to see our suggestions for the month of April.

Rema and Shehrbano’s Vanilla Dream



This quintessential off-white chikan kurta adorned with laces and pleats is ideal for the Summer. Pair this with a traditional shalwar for a daytime event or bootcut pants for a night out. And yes, do not forget to add some pink blush because you don’t want to look washed out now, do you?

Generation’s Traditional Printed dress


Have to go for a friend’s mehndi lagai? You have your wardrobe sorted! Pair this beautifully printed ankle length dress with khussas and lots of silver bangles to WOW everyone. Tie up your hair in a messy bun to sport a practical yet fashionable look.


Striped Spring Cheerfulness by Daaman


With a collar and stripes, this one screams workwear! You can pair this with cropped white pants and yellow slip-ons to add a pop of colour to your look.

Beechtree’s White Summer Cooler


The beauty of this lavishly embroidered white kameez is that you can dress it up or down depending on the occasion. Wear it with a silk dupatta in a brighter shade(s) and silver jhumkis for nighttime excursions and for a day out pair it with reflectors and a tan satchel.

Zaheer Abbas’s Salute to Monochrome Magic


Statement sleeves and a monochrome look is what our dreams are made of. Zaheer Abbas presents two stunning black and white options! Take your pick and wear it to the next theatre night. Go all out with this kurta and pair it with black pants, black stilettos, and smokey eyes.

FYI, WO loves the little ruffles and strings on the sleeves!


Ayesha Somaya’s Powder Pink Grace


This pretty pastel number is perfect for tea parties or even an intimate baat pakki dinner. We love Ayesha Somaya’s choice of white pants with bows and suggest you steal the idea too. Dab on some pink lip stain and accessorize with pearls for a fresh and feminine look.

Farida Hasan’s Spring Delight


Need something summery yet subtle for a Sunday GT with your colleagues? Then this masterfully rendered Farida Hasan creation should be your pick. A bit of bling in the ears, metallic slides on the feet, and a messy braid will ensure you are dressed for the occasion.

Khaadi’s Tradition Meets Trend Number


This bright sunny angrakha offers tons of versatility. Wear it with tied up hair, some coral lip colour, and a tulip shalwar for a lunch date with your friends.

Sapphire’s Bohemian Beat


For a little break from summery florals and pastel color palettes, you must buy this navy blue bohemian piece. Paired with white tulip pants with navy blue accents, this one is an ideal sartorial choice for a laid back dinner at your favorite restaurant. Go for a deep plum lip colour to give your look and your confidence an instant boost.

Zara Shahjahan’s Old World Charm


Styled perfectly with a white casual gharara and blue khussas, this kurta is perfect to bring the desi gal feel to your summer wardrobe. Accessorize it with silver ethnic jewelry and wear it to the next artsy event you have to attend.

Pro tip: To make this blue number work wonders, pair it with well-tailored white boot cut pants or even gharara pants.
