Hi Guys! Hope you are liking my posts about styling the latest trends in Pakistani fashion. Yesterday, I focused on Elan Silk 2017 and boy was I right about their popularity. One of the designs is already out of stock during pre-booking.
If you are my Instagram follower, you know that I went to a screening of “Song of Lahore” at Stanford University (California, USA) last night. It was such a beautifully made documentary that I cried during it. The struggle of the musicians and art in general is real in Pakistan. And I am so happy that movie-makers and bloggers like us have influence over the masses and create conversations that bring forth new ideas and hidden problems in our society. If you haven’t seen it, please get the DVD (See HERE), watch the stream (See HERE) or look out for screenings in cities near you. It is imperative that people support the art and culture of the foregone era.
Today, I wanted to continue doing what I know best-merging western accessorizes/trends with eastern fashion. I first saw this concept on women of high society in Pakistan doing this and I was like why not highlight it to the rest of the world. So today, I will showcase another creative merger of the east with the west. So here goes:
Look # 1:
Tory Burch came up with her new A/W 2017 collection and I am focused on her shoe designs although the other items are pretty gorgeous for the season as well.
I know Pakistani women are not big on slingbacks for some reason-maybe they don’t want their heels showing, which I think can be remedied by a good moisturizer; however, I think slingback pumps give a woman’s feet great lines and highlight a little skin, while leaving the rest to the imagination. Another aspect of slingback pumps I like is that you do not have to run to a salon to get a pedicure before a night out. You can just slip into a slingback pump like these ROSALIND SUEDE SLINGBACK PUMP (See HERE) and pair them with slim pants and a nice kurta.
You can even juxtapose the day look with some evening wear by Tena Durrani. This Luxury Pret Traditional outfit called Evergreen (See HERE) would look great with these heels. There is a contrast of texture, color, and an overall feel which would make each aspect of your look stand apart.
Look # 2:
Moving on to the next look. I have been fascinated with pairing an eastern outfit with some cute booties. I know it is a big risk, but if done tastefully, the risk can turn into a win. Tory Burch has got us covered when it comes to boots and booties. The ASHTON BOOTIE (See HERE) is a perfect neutral, open-toe bootie that can go with a modern-cut eastern wear. The outfit by Tena Durrani I recommend with this Tory Burch bootie is Tena Durrani’s Tia (See HERE). Do note, these are some high heels, so I would recommend a no-fuss outfit with it. This look would be perfect for evening birthdays and get-togethers of all kinds. the suede plus the patent leather makes it a versatile statement shoe.
Look # 3:
I don’t know about you, but once in a while, I want to give a break to my little footsies and wear flats with my eastern-wear. I love t-strap sandals and these Tory Burch’s ASHTON T-STRAP FLAT (See HERE) will look perfectly with Tena Durrani’s Hazel outfit (See HERE). A young girl would look beautiful and fresh with this look and it is a pretty low-maintenance choice. It will great for baby showers, office holiday parties, or any western-culture-based event. If you are a hostess than these Tory Burch sandals are perfect for when you have to run around.
Look # 4:
I love this look because it is great for an important office meeting or a art or designer exhibition. These Tory Burch JESSA HORSE-HARDWARE LOAFER (See HERE) will be great with Tena Durrani’s Pret collection (See HERE and HERE). They are comfortable, look expensive, and the hardware is quite lovely. The loafers crafted from croc-embossed leather, is inspired by gentlemanly design. You sure will look and feel dapper in this look.
Some other great Tory Burch shoes that will look good with eastern wear such as Tena Durrani’s are the SHELBY BROCADE BOOTIE (See HERE), ELORA SLIDE (See HERE), and the LORETTA PLATFORM SANDAL (See HERE). These brocade and embroidered pieces will great with Tena Durrani’s embroidered pieces.
I hope I have given you some ideas and you go our and purchase these or other items from their websites. Happy Shopping!!!
