On this day, we recall the epic struggle that our forefathers went through to protect our country and defend our motherland. On this day, patriotism is painted across walls our cities, on the cheeks of our people- our beloved crescent and sitara shine from above rooftops and buildings as we take pride of our unity as a nation. Our struggle for independence dates decades back, and we here at Edition are here to help you express your patriotism in every way possible. Here are some 14th August themed makeup and fashion trends that you can hop onto! THE CLASSIC: An oversized white shalwar and short, stylish green kameez will always be a trend! Buy this readily available in stores, or get it easily stitched. Go for an all-green combo as well!
TYE DYE: This year, with the advent of COVID-19, tye dye at home has become huge. Spice up that shalwar with some light and dark green dye patterns. Alternatively, scrunch up your green kurta and place it in a bucket of bleach (bleach dye) to get a cool and unique pattern! If you’re too lazy to dye it yourself, there are so many creative patterns in stores and online!
MAKEUP: Shizra Saeed, a recently graduated high school student, stuns us with her creative take on Independence Day themed makeup. She expresses patriotism through both modern green and white themed makeup, and her especially interesting Pakistan Zindabad look!
Follow Shizra’s Instagram page (@shizraxsaeed) for more dazzling looks and tutorials! Be sure to try this out tomorrow!
PRINTS, PRINTS, PRINTS! Try out some interesting green prints on your kameez and feel free to experiment! Dazzle others with these creative designs. Readily available in stores and done by celebrities and designers alike, this is sure to stun!
LAZY GIRL: Don’t have a green outfit? Too lazy to sort through catalogues and shop for your Independence Day clothes? We’ve got you covered! Try out a plain white shalwar-kameez, coupled with a deep green dupatta to spread that patriotism.
MIX AND MATCH! Instead of classic colours, why not try out a bold green, colour-blocked with red! You’ll definitely stand out, and if green is still your main colour, we guarantee your pride for Pakistan will still shine through.
Happy Independence Day everyone! We hope you celebrate your country and enjoy the day in some stylish and creative outfits! We at Edition wish you a great day!
