Can’t decide what to wear to the biggest night of the year? Don’t worry, we got you sorted. While the sari is everyone’s go-to attire for the event, if you’re not a sari girl, we’ve got other options that will make you look like a diva.

A plain sari

Nothing looks more understated and elegant than a plain sari in a bright, attractive colour. Dress it up with makeup and accessories and you’re good to go.

The kaftan is a fuss-free attire which is perfect for the summers considering how breezy they are. Let’s not forget how glam and ethereal this looks.


If long, flowy outfits are not your thing, you can opt for a pantsuit, which gives a powerful, confident vibe. Either pair plain trousers and a coat with a lace shirt for a feminine touch or statement pants and a blingy jacket for a more glamorous look.

If bling is your thing, you can wear an embellished blouse with a plain sari to strike a balance and not look overdone.

Now that we have plenty of fashion inspo, the next step is getting the clothes made. You can either opt to go to the designer directly and get your outfit made, or you can make it from scratch with the help of your darzi. There are plenty of places where you can get the material from at affordable prices.

In Karachi, Aashiana Centre is your best bet, while in Lahore head over to Lahore Centre or Liberty. Islamabad has limited places, but Satellite Town in Pindi has some great kapra stores. And don’t worry ladies. Tailors are now almost as good as the real thing. Show them a sample of what you want, and they’ll have your back.
