It is commonly believed that youths are fashion-conscious. They are primarily interested in the latest fashion trends. Upon visiting the Eid market, it was seen that there was a vast assortment of clothing developed specifically for them.
This Eid, the majority of fashion houses have designed and coloured their clothing in accordance with the themes that they have chosen for themselves. However, because it is so hot, every fashion brand has taken into consideration the comfort factor when designing outfits. Because of this, breathable and pleasant textiles such as cotton, linen, silk, and the like are recommended.
Young women’s fashion
The saree and salwar kameez are popular, but young ladies love wearing western styles. Women’s kurtas, shirts, etc., have seen a style evolution in terms of both cut and design. Kameez is characterised by its many layers. Again this year, the long partan kameez is the most popular choice for Eid attire. Girls typically pair short kameezes or shirts with loose pants like harem pants, palazzos, or dhoti pyjamas.
This time the demand for Kurtis and tops is high. Besides, gown-style kameez, long patterned frocks and kameez are also preferred by many.
A market tour saw fashion houses designing kameez, Kurtis and tops with hand embroidery, machine embroidery, skin print and thread work. Moreover, the use of Jamdani motifs is also seen.
There is also a difference in the design of kameez sleeves for girls. Fringed sleeves, tulip sleeves, bell sleeves, circular flan sleeves, drop shoulders, cold shoulders, and tie sleeves have captured the hearts of buyers.
The fashion houses have also emphasised the sleeves of the garment. In this case, the rest of the clothing is kept quite simple. However, the frill design sleeve is the most eye-catching.
No one wears salwar kameez as much now. Tops with skirts, dhoti style trousers, tops with pants are trending.’
This time several clothes have been made in a mix of domestic and international styles. For girls, there are gipsies, short tops, chained salwar kameez etc. On the occasion of Eid, some fashion houses have created Lawn Formal. They look like long coats. But the price is a bit high.
