Now is the time to look like the colour wheel barfed on you and not get judged for it. The season that gives you all the liberty to unleash the deranged gypsy within and dump the Oxford sweaters and pull-overs for something outdoorsy, expressive and not to mention easy and breezy, is finally here. And since it already feels like the sun lives in our left pocket, we may as well just bring in some joviality through our everyday wear.
For Pakistani Parveens
More and more designers have brought forward their take of the gypsy culture by fusing Balochi/Sindhi malang culture with nautical and psychedelic prints and presenting them with a modern twist.
Some of our favourite lawn collections this season are Junaid Jamshed’s Lawn, Deepak Perwani Premium Lawn and Khaadi Lawn. All three of these brands have managed to find the perfect equilibrium between international gypsy and desi malang and the best thing about them is that you can afford them without having to consider the option of selling one of your arms to afford one of their creations.
For the wild child
If you work in a regimented corporate environment, you can invest your moolah in some fancy headgear. You may want to get hold of some bold-coloured shirts and pair them up with a sombre suit to create the perfect fix of colour and sophistication. Colour blocking is as constant in the fashion fraternity as the northern star.
Laces and buckles are back, be it sandals or heels. Think dominatrix or even Xena: The Warrior Princess and get yourself a pair of uber sexy gladiator sandals in preferably brown or beige (only because they go with everything) with a hint of gold.
Women who work in a dress code-free environment try everything from big flowery prints to mind-boggling psychedelic prints. Ditch your pearls and gold for jewellery made from thread, rope, bones and colourful beads (big and small). Remember pedestrian-cool.
