The return of any fashion fad always extends an opportunity for fashionistas to shake things up. Whenever any old and long-lived trend makes a comeback, it always brings a new twist along with it. Doing one thing the same way is simply not what fashion divas do!
Nowadays, the trend of wearing shalwars is peeking from different corners and we reckon, it will dominate the fashion scene for a long time. There is no denying that skinny pants and leg-hugging jeans always hold a special place in our heart, but in this season of scorching heat, we all crave a more relaxed silhouette and will definitely opt for our beloved traditional style staples shalwars.
Designers and fashion houses have already gauged the return of this trend and are now bringing shalwars- the old school sophisticated style to the fore.
Fashion industry’s royalty, Feeha Jamshed always uses her designs to portray some aspects of our culture and tradition and when it is shalwars, it sure seems like it’s her favourite apparel piece ever. Her shalwars with quirky prints make them look just so chic.

Not only that; the return of the shalwar trend is also making waves across the border and a lot of Bollywood celebrities have recently been spotted wearing shalwars. View some pictures below:
One of the best things about shalwars is that they are super comfortable, especially for the summer season. The super-wide and roomy silhouette makes this bottom our favourite piece to don, along with making a style statement when going out.
Moreover, you can pair them up with short kurtas as well as long shirts. A well-tailored dhoti shalwar with a flare and resemblance to harem pants can also be styled with crop tops and t-shirts.
