Trending this week
As the heat ravages us of any strength or sense of purpose, it's hard to remember why we used to dress up in the first place. That's why our sartorial stars this week remind us that style isn't just clothes worn well, it’s a form of self-expression and it can be a great tool to reconnect with yourself and explore the bounds of your own identity. Here's who we have to inspire you this week:
Saheefa Jabbar Khattak
An extremely striking image, SJK dons a parrot green Hussain Rehar tunic with a white turtleneck neck band and 3D embellishments across the front. Her clean, minimal look exudes regality, matching the simple yet ornamented hairstyle that elevates a summer friendly bun into ‘something haute’.
A Lahore based model cum photographer, this self-portrait series of Qizilbash is a fun exploration of what fashion/style can and do mean to each individual. She takes common elements available to us all and turns them into something fresh, something entirely new. All you need to become fashionable is look within yourself and find your distinctive voice.
When regular folks do yoga we look six different kinds of hot, bothered and sweaty. When Ms. Shafi takes the reverse warrior stance she looks effortlessly strong. It also doesn’t hurt that even Shafi's yoga wardrobe is the stuff of dreams. The electric blue gathered yoga pants and white crop top set against the leafy background is making us reach for the yoga mat. We might not look as great but maybe we'll pick up some enlightenment on the way!
This dusky bombshell breathes new life into a classic combination. We love how confidently Hassan owns the crimson wraparound/sari hybrid and makes the heat look like a no-sweat situation. The simple accessories, natural hair are paired with nearly monotone eyes and lips that ground this look very clear in 2020. What's not to love?
