Independence Day in any country is celebrated with great fervour and with high spirits. In Pakistan however, Independence Day is a day that we especially look forward to and celebrate it with much zeal. There is much to celebrate on this day as we celebrate our independence; with this year marking our 72nd Independence Day. While we are still in the midst of a global pandemic, things may fare a little differently this year. However, with the lockdown over and restriction lifted and everyone finally allowed to be out and about, celebrations may take place tenfold. Only time will tell.
Many celebrate the big day in their own unique way. Friends often gather together and enjoy a meal, many head to the beach, some host small gatherings at home and others love to dress up in the colours of the Pakistan flag and use the day to spend time with family. Whatever you may be doing with your day off this Independence Day, why not make sure you dress to impress in the perfect hues of green and white. If you can’t decide what to wear, we’ve rounded up a bunch of accessories and attire that you could sport to celebrate Independence Day in style!
A pair of white pants
We love a good old pair of pristine white pants! A pair of wite pants is so versatile and can be styled in a number of ways. The neutral colour allows you to experiment with a number of other colours to make your outfit pop. This Independence Day, it only makes sense to pair your white pants with a green top. Pair your white pants with a green tee or a pretty blouse and you’ll certainly leave heads turning. Alternatively, you can opt for an all-white look and team your pants with a white tee or button-down and opt for a green scarf to add that pop of colour. You can never go wrong with this look.
A green tee
A tee is the most basic clothing item but is also versatile. This independence day opt for a green tee and team with any lower of your choice. You can couple your tee with a pair of ripped jeans, white denim, dark denim or even with a feminine pleated skirt. Opt to have your tee tucked in or out or you could even get creative and knot your tee at the side to up the style quotient. For added glamour, you can layer up some jewels and let your tee do all the talking this Independence day!
A green dupatta
We love the old world charm that a dupatta brings to every outfit. It is a basic piece of cloth, but it can make all the difference to your look. This independence day, look for that old green dupatta in your wardrobe and team it with a white shalwar kurta. Not only will this bring a pop of colour to your outfit, but it will also allow you to exude those traditional vibes. Alternatively, you can even opt for a white dupatta and pair it with your green shalwar kurta. If you’re not in the mood to wear desi attire, then use your dupatta as a scarf and wrap it around over your tee and jeans.
Green hair accessories
Hair accessories have been all the rage in the last few seasons and continue to trend this season. Why not opt for some white and green accessories to stand out from the crowd. You may not want to opt for green or white clothing, but you can surely let your clothing do all the talking this independence day. A range of accessories can be found in green and white, from satin scrunchies, to hair clips, to silk scarves and pearl embellished slides. So this independence day, jazz up your hair with the perfect accessories.
A flag adorned tote bag
If you plan to be out and about this independence day, why not make a statement with your bag. Tote bags, jute bags and cloth bags are now the way forward if you’re trying to be more mindful of sustainability and the environment. These bags are able to carry all your belongings, are environmentally friendly and have a cool factor attached to them. A flag adorned bag could be your way of showing your patriotism this year, even if you’re only stepping out for a grocery run. Pair with a white tee and jeans and you’ll be good to go all independence day long.
With a green and white manicure
If all else fails and you’re not in the mood to wear or carry the colours of the flag, why not get a mani to represent your patriotism this Independence Day? This is also the perfect excuse for a pampering session as you get to relax and unwind as your nails are done. There are so many shades of green and so many great nail artists out there who can give you desired results with a manicure. You could even opt for some nail art and have Pakistan’s flag drawn onto one or all your nails!
