Types of Waistcoats

- Basic

A single shade waistcoat is usually referred to a basic waistcoat which has no to minimal add-ons. Basic or simple waistcoats are a timeless piece of clothing which every man must have in their wardrobe. Especially a basic waistcoat in classic colours such as white, black and blue are the colours that every man must indeed have in their wardrobe. These colours pair well with almost all sorts of gents shalwar kameez designs.

- Embroidered

Pakistani clothing brands have launched embroidered waistcoats that are all the hype right now. While some seem skeptical of the stitched waistcoat designs with embroidered patches, detailing and borders, others seem to don it with utmost style. Embroidery detailing elevates the complete outlook and are an exceptional choice for wearing at weddings.

- Digital Printed

Another hot trend in the world of waistcoats is digitally printed waistcoats. Fashion designers have launched a versatile range of prints and patterns that look graceful and sharp. Our personal favourite are delicate patterns that almost look like texture. They look exceptional when paired with simple kurta design for men.

How to Style your Waistcoat?

• Kurta Trouser

Styling can be tricky and we agree, hence we bring to you style advise that has not gone out of style for centuries. Sticking to basics can sometimes be a blessing in disguise. While today’s fashion world and brands in Pakistan aspire to be unique and quirky, we believe sometimes old remains gold. Every age has its own grace and not all styles are for all body types. Therefore, we always advocate sticking to a style that suits your body type the best. If you are tall with petite legs then we recommend you to style yourself in gents kurta design paired with a trouser design. Don over a waistcoat for ultimate impact.


• Kurta Shalwar

If pants and trouser design makes you uncomfortable, which is always a complaint we come across, then opt for salwar design. They are loose fitted, breezy and the most comfortable piece of clothing. Waistcoat over a gents shalwar kameez design is definitely a timeless look!

When to Style your Waistcoat?

- Dinner

Styling can be tricky if you do not know the anatomy of what pairs well with what. While fashion is not tricky being fashionable can be. Therefore, we suggest you to stick to basics when in doubt. Waistcoat design is a simple statement piece with many advantages. This single piece of clothing can be styled differently for various occasions. If you wonder where and how to style it then consider styling a crisp waistcoat for a formal dinner. Opt for a lighter shade of gents kurta design paired with a matching trouser design and don a darker shade of waistcoat in the similar colour family or vice versa.


- Official Meeting

Waistcoats give a formal look and the wearer automatically stands out. Therefore, wearing waistcoats for an official meeting is a good idea. The outfit will make you look and feel confident and give you the courage boost to ace your meeting. Pair same shade waistcoat over gents shalwar kameez design after all one must dress to impress and nothing less.

- Wedding

Who does not like dressing up for a wedding be it your family members or your friends, a waistcoat never goes out of style. For a wedding we advise you to be bold and play with contrasts rather than sticking with the basics. While basics might please in daily life, weddings are all about extravaganza. Opt for digital printed, embroidered or textured waistcoat designs in versatile fabrications or pair a simple waistcoat design over a boski suit.
