Pakistani Style Icons

In celebration of 23rd March, the iconic day on which the Lahore Resolution was passed in 1940, we have put together a list of some fabulous Pakistani Style Icons through the ages. They're legendary, classy, and their style is timeless and unforgettable for years to come!

1. Quaid-e-Azam

From his perfectly tailored suits, to his neat slick hairstyle, to his signature cigar, the father of our nation is top of the list for his sense of style amongst his other most impressive traits.Even when he slowly transitioned from this western attire to a more traditional one, the sleek sherwani and karakuli cap which came to be more commonly known as the Jinnah cap, he was still an epitome of a classic aristocratic appearance. So on this monumental day, here is a salute to the father of our nation!

2. Noor Jehan

A woman of many talents, no one can forget the Queen of Melody and her contribution to Pakistani music and cinema! Her iconic shimmery saaris, which she carried off with pure grace, often topped of with a choker neckpiece and her classic hairstyle, frequently ornamented with a flower on the side, are remembered by all who have ever heard of her.

3. Bunto Kazmi


Another classy lady with an original sense of style, Bunto Kazmi is famously known as a pioneer in the Pakistani fashion industry where her couture bridal pieces are endlessly gushed over. But what we love about Mrs Kazmi is her classic sense of style: a crisp shalwar and minimalistic kurta paired with a gorgeous printed shawl or scarf, plus that old world bun which executes elegance and sophistication like no other!

4. Imran Khan


Back in his sportsman days when he was a real heart throb known by his tousled hairstyle and open buttoned shirt, to his classic shalwar kameez and peshawari sandals today, Imran Khan too is top of the list when it comes to having a signature style! Not only does he have a certain charisma, he also carries off a suit with a finesse that most of our politicians lack!

5. Meesha Shafi


And last but not the least, we have the multi talented (and hot mommy!) Meesha Shafi who slays that rocker chick look like no other! Her personal style is experimental, out of the box and nothing but original. From statement sneakers for a casual look to a hot pair of spiked heels on the red carpet, someone is yet to carry out those outfits the way she does!
