Desi fashion has paved its way into our everyday wardrobe – and we love it! Jhumkas, bangles and kurtas are staples in every fashion forward girl’s closet. But how can we talk about traditional outfits without mentioning the OG khussay. The traditional footwear has brilliantly maintained its clout even in 2019. It’s trendy, comfy, attractive and everything good footwear should have. If you’ve been eyeing a pair of khussay but aren’t sure how to rock them, look no further. Here’s the ultimate guide to wearing khussay this year, thanks to your favourite style savvy celebs – and just in time for Eid!
1. Stick To The Basics Like Maya Ali
Tired of wearing the same, old sneakers every time you’re out for lunch with your girls? Swap them for a pair of equally comfy, and even prettier, khussays. Take a cue from the stunning Maya and rock a pair of plain black khussays with a long kurti, basic tights and add a silk scarf to make it chic. This is how you pull-off an effortless Eastern look.
2. Keep The Matching Game Strong Like Sana Javed
Matching your footwear with your outfit was a thing back in the day, but guess who’s still nailing the trend? The gorgeous Sana Javed! She’s slaying this elegant olive green and gold ensemble, pairing it with similar coloured khussay. We’re bookmarking this look for Eid and so should you!
3. Mix And Match Like Ayeza Khan
Have a coloured pair of khussay that don’t go with any of your outfits? Let Ayeza show you how to rock them! Wear an all-white outfit and brighten it up with vibrant khussas. Accessorise with some bold earrings and you’ll be set to turn heads.
4. Go All Out Desi Like Aamna Ilyas
A head-to-toe desi look is incomplete without a striking pair of khussay. Aamna knows this and looks lovely in a traditional outfit, paired with plain silver khussas. Add a good old paranda and gorgeous jhumkas and you’ll be the talk of town!
5. Bling It On Like Hareem Farooq
Embellished khussay are all the rage but if you think they’re too OTT, dress them down like Hareem. She pairs her blingy khussas with a traditional white kameez and churidar, keeping it chic and minimal. This is how you keep it formal yet simple.
6. Have A Pastel Affair Like Alyzeh Gabol
This is the perfect Eastern summer look decoded: A pastel coloured breezy kurta, a classic white tulip shalwar (yes, they’re still going strong) and the star of the look, a pair of trendy khussay. Steal this supermodel’s look and spend the rest of your summer days slaying like a diva.
7. Make It Androgynous Like Ushna Shah
The bold and beautiful Ushna Shah is not one to play it safe. We’re huge fans of her experimental style! Let Ushna be your guide and wear your favourite khussay in a unusual way! She creates the perfect fusion look by pairing Eastern wardrobe staples — black shalwar and khussas – with a artsy graphic kurta-tee.
8. Make It Pop Like Saba Qamar
While the world is obsessing over neutral shoes, Saba shows us how to go bright with your footwear. She keeps it minimal yet makes a statement by pairing a simple, soft-hued lawn outfit with bright mustard khussay. Nothing says cool and classy like this look.
9. Wedding Ready Like Mahira Khan
