Eid brings a lot of things with it, yes, Eidi and good food but also pictures of our celebrities bringing their best fashion game forward.

No matter how busy we may be during the three-days of Eidul Fitr, we end up taking time out to Instagram and see who-wore-what, even while stuffing our faces with biryani and qorma. From Hania Aamir to Muzi Sufi and Ayesha Omer, everyone looked vibrant in their Eid looks, but only five made the cut for us this time around.

Here is a list of the ones who are worth a mention in HTV’s Eid favorites.

White is the New Black

One might think that no one can ever go wrong with an all-white ensemble, but that’s not true. It takes confidence and elegance to pull off an all-white number. And Neelum Munir and Saba Qamar have got us rooting for them.

Bling It On

Whoever said that there is never enough bling, was right. While on most days we prefer toning down our outfits, Eid gives us the excuse to go all out. Seems like Iqra Aziz did in fact, get that memo.

This Ali Xeeshan kurta shalwar paired with ethnic big earrings and simple make up does justice to Iqra’s girl-next-door persona.

Keeping it Simple

As they say sometimes less is more, and Ushna Shah’s blue cotton gharara paired with collared white kurta gives us uber-chic vibes. We are here for minimalistic style.

Red it Right

Who said red was just for shaadis? In fact, restricting red to just one occasion is doing injustice to its vibrancy. And not just us but our celebrities too can’t let that happen.

Maya Ali wore an all-red ensemble by Faiza Saqlain and she looks nothing less than a vision in red. Our very own Dream Girl.

No matter how much we try to get everything sorted for Eid days before it, we find ourselves looking into the mirror and thinking something is amiss.

We have all been there, wishing that we were richer to afford that mehnga jora from that designer studio. #FirstWorldProblems

However, what if we told you that you can look like a fashionista without even having to step out of your house? Yes, you read that right.

Here are five last minute tips that will make you look glamorous without even having to pay for it.

Go All Out

We live in times where nothing is too much and that only works in our favor.

So, if you feel like that your Eid ka jora is too simple, add big jhumkas or a choker necklace to it and look like the ethnic beauty that you are.

Belt It Up

From saris to shalwar kameez and kurtas, everything looks sophisticated and classy if you just add a belt on your waist.

All you have to do is, wear the dupatta on one side and put it in place with a belt. Add a pair of heels to the mix and catwalk to that dawat in style.

Lose That Baggage

More often than not, we prefer carrying a crossbody bag on special occasions than handbags. While they are smaller to carry, there is no denying the fact that we get tired of having to carry them around on our shoulders.

But it’s time to lose that baggage.

This year, wear your crossbody bag around your waist like a fanny pack. If you have a strap bag then put the bag around your waist and adjust it accordingly. In case, you have a chain crossbody bag, then put it around your waist and tie a knot. It’s that simple.

Bring Back the 90s

Remember how our moms used to add hair clips on hair clips on our little heads before sending us off to school? Well, it’s time to that ourselves now.

No. Don’t add them all like your mom did. Just pick out the pretty barrettes that go with your outfit and wear it on your hair.

Whether you plan to straighten them and leave them open, or tie them up in a bun, barrettes will help add the 90s glam everyone romanticizes about.

Do a Full-face

Think your outfit is too simple for Eid? Direct the attention on your face.

Do a full-face make-up and a perfect red pout. And pose with a smile.

Have you been waiting till the nth moment to shop for your Eid outfit? Making up excuses to not go shopping because you hate it? Well, fret not. We have got you sis.

In times of crisis we suggest you look for inspiration from our celebrities and copy their style. After all, as they say imitation is the best form of flattery and our style divas sure know what they are doing. They have after all spent their hard earned money on their style team.

So, hit the mall in the last days of Ramazan with a plan.

Go Bling

Hania Aamir may be the quirky girl next door, but boy does she know how to style herself.

Her recent Instagram post has brought Eid a little early but we are not complaining. The white and gold suit paired with a chain hand bracelet and ethnic earrings will make everyone at the Eid dawat root for you.

You can even skip doing a full make-up face for this one. Just wear red lipstick and hear everyone say, who that girl?

Gone are the days, when red was restricted to be worn by brides or newlyweds. And thank God for that, because why shouldn’t single ladies get a chance to look hot in red. Just like our girl Iqra Aziz.

Considering the color in itself is so bright, you don’t have to get any extra embellishments in your jora just like Iqra’s. Keep it simple with straightened hair and silver studs and you are good to go.

If you feel like adding a little more to this outfit, pair it with silver heels.

Breezy Pastels

Take a page out of Urwa Hocane’s style book and pick out a pastel color to wear this Eid. You can’t quite go wrong with wearing, as they say, a ‘thanda’ color in the summer.

Go for a minimalistic style by opting for a kurta that has simple embellishment on top and pair it with statement earrings and georgette dupatta.

Drape It Up

We know sari is quite an unusual choice for Eid. But you got to admit that a simple cotton sari also makes one look elegant and classy. So, if you want to stand out in the crowd, wear a cotton sari with beach wavy hair like Sanam Saeed. And you might not even have to go to the mall for it, just raid your mom’s closet.

To add a glam effect to your outfit, wear a gold choker necklace and bangles, and twirl with a smile.

summer look 20-4-19

In summer dressing up is no mean feat. You not only have to choose the right color to step out in the scorching heat but also want the overall look to be simple and effortless.

Although our celebrities always put their best foot forward and it feels like they don’t even know what a bad selfie looks like. Yet in this warm weather what our A-listers are wearing, is nothing less than magic.

We scroll down our Insta feed to hand-pick some of the most edgy summer looks our fave celebs have worn. Scroll on to see who made it to the list as it will help you set your own wardrobe for this season.

Twisted Rope Braid

This old school hairdo was not only spotted at the New York Fashion Week but we have also seen the likes of Kardashian and Beyonce following the trend. Recently, Sanam Saeed posted a picture on her Instagram donning this super cool summery hairdo.

Try your hands at it and say hello to your simple-yet-stunning hairstyle.

Large Hoop Earrings

Does the fashion of hoops ever go away? We don’t thinks so. The best way to add a feminine and cool touch to any of your summer look is to wear a pair of large hoop earrings.

Many celebs have been spotted wearing these statement hoop earrings. Perhaps, Hareem Farooqi can be described as the “Princes of Hoops”.  The actress has donned some amazing variations of hoops recently. Seems like she is also in love with this basic piece of jewelry just like us.

Fringes

To all the fringe lovers out there, we are glad to tell you that this trend is back in vogue. Be it in your earrings, bracelets or clothes, fringes give dimensions and textures when done right. The best part about them – they are feasible for every season.

Mawra Hocane can be seen donning a perfect evening look with fringe-d black sari. So, if fringes are not your thing, we believe it’s time to change that.

Print Mashup

If you want to stand out in the crowd, try wearing clashing prints together. Hania Aamir has mastered the art by going print head-to-toe. The unlikely combo will make you look like a perfect summer baby.

Prints also look dramatic with a neutral base. In fact, with a sophisticated neutral, even the minimalists can easily embrace the print on print trend this season.

Neon

Another trend that you need to incorporate into your wardrobe is the neon trend. If you want to shine brighter than the sun, add some neon.

Neon is simply an Instagram gold this season, you find it everywhere. See how smartly Sonya Hussyn has harmonized her neon green stilettos to lift up the otherwise casual summer look.

You can also add a subtle pop of neon in your wardrobe to stand out in your next beach trip. All in all, we can safely say that the neon trend is going to be sticking around for a while.

The Ultimate White Kurta

We fall in love with Mahira Khan every time she keeps it casual with her classic white kurtas and churidars. But, now it seems like white kurta has become a summer must-have as many other actresses have also been seen wearing the elegant style statement for their mid-day outings.

See how gorgeous Mansha Pasha looks in this chic white kurta and pants. We think her fans would have already decided to make this simple outfit their summer uniform.

Harassment Survivors

Last year at the Lux Style Awards, a platform was given to #MeinBhi. It is an offshoot of the #MeToo movement that started the conversation on women dealing with sexual harassment and assault. Led by Frieha Altaf, #MeinBhi was more tailored to Pakistan and stretched to express solidarity with survivors of multiple human rights violations. From sexual assault and acid attacks to human trafficking, a range of social issues were addressed during the show.

So, imagine our surprise when we saw an alleged sexual assaulter pop up in the nominations this year. We weren’t the only ones to notice this.

Supporting women

Model Eman Suleman caused a ruckus on social media when she gave up her nomination for the Best Emerging Talent category in solidarity with the survivors. She made the controversial announcement through a video on her Instagram page. While many applauded her decision to take a stand, she also received a lot of criticism.

Only weeks later, Generation, the leading retail brand nominated for Achievement in Fashion Design (pret), and makeup artist Saima Bargfrede, nominated for Best Hair and Make Up Artist, also rejected their nominations.

They took to social media and said, “The decision is in protest to the award platform’s choice to include a nomination for an individual who faces serious and credible accusations of sexual harassment.

The two brands stand with women who face and fight toxic misogyny, sexism and sexual harassment in multiple ways in pursuance of their dreams and indeed in their daily lives. The two entities have been nominated for awards in different categories and believe that by accepting any nomination or award and participating in LSA 2019 would be doing a disservice to the cause of women’s empowerment and the urgent need to address the menace of sexual harassment.”

Posted by Generation on Monday, April 22, 2019

Singer Meesha Shafi also took to Twitter on April 23 and publicly stepped away from her nomination for Best Song for her single ‘Mein’. She thanked and praised the others for taking a stand, and mentioned the lack of safety for women in the industry: “In a perfect world, I would love to see women retain their space in the industry while feeling safe, so that the cost of speaking up is minimized, or even done away with altogether.”

“Our boycotts should not overshadow our achievements.” She continued, “With brave women like these, I feel optimistic about getting there one day.” At the end she requested her name be withdrawn from the nomination.

It has not just been women who have boycotted LSA and dropped their nominations. Allies such as the folk rock band The Sketches also took to social media to announce that they are dropping out. They have been nominated for Best Song, Best Playback Singer, Best Original Soundtrack and Singer Of The Year.

“Our reason is simply based on our values and principles, which, we will not bend for any award,” said the band in its statement,” said the band in a press statement released on April 23.

We are firstly human beings who strive through art to build a more respectful and just society. We cannot do this if we…

The unseen cost

While we stand with Meesha, we can’t help but think that at the end of the day it is women who have to give up their achievements to further their fight as institutions keep failing them.

Meesha Shafi accused actor and singer Ali Zafar of harassment last year in April. Though he has denied the accusation, the matter is currently in court. Ali has also been accused of harassment by multiple women. However, he has been nominated for Best Actor for Teefa In Trouble in LSA 2019.

Will more nominated celebrities be taking a stand against this in protest? It’s about time predators of the industry are held accountable and a safer space for women is created.
