Since the past few years, a whole array of new pant styles have erupted in the desi fashion market. From classic styles of churidaars and shalwars to contemporary cigarette pants and culottes, the options are endless. But there’s one trendy style that we adore, but can’t seem to pull off – the tulip shalwar. If you’re in the same boat as us, here are 7 alternative pants to try!
Back To The Basics
Classic shalwars are back in and we couldn’t be happier! This traditional style from our childhood has made a comeback and it’s made styling outfits so much easier. This white shalwar with lace detailing from Image is the perfect accompaniment to any kurta you have!
Ajrak Me Up
We love outfits that show off our Pakistani pride and these embroidered pants from Sana Safinaz are giving us those vibes. With their Ajrak inspired design, these pants will add an element of quirkiness along with being chic! Pair them with a plain black shirt to really have them pop and catch everyone’s attention.
With the wedding season upon us, having outfits ready for each event can be a struggle. But these silk cullottes from Generation make the task a little easier. We’re all for re-styling old clothes with new pieces and these pants are the perfect way to do so! Wear them with any of your heavier shirts to instantly freshen up the look.
Cigarette pants are flattering on almost anyone and these Ammara Khan ones are versatile enough to be worn anywhere. Wear them to the office with a plain shirt in a muted hue or to your bestie’s dholki with a vibrant, jewel-toned shirt! Either way, they’ll be a big hit.
Dulce De Leche
These wide leg pants from Misha Lakhani scream comfort and that’s what we love about them! The crepe material means they are light and airy, and the stunning colour has our heart. Wear them with contemporary tunics for the ultimate chic-yet-comfortable look!

Jamawaar is that one fabric that will never go out of style and Sania Maskatiya’s black and gold rendition is one for the books! These cigarette pants are regal, elegant and luxurious and will look great with a heavy sequinned top, without looking OTT. You need these in your life.
