Published: March 12, 2017

The owner and designer of Pakistan’s first loungewear label, Blood Orange, shares her personal style. Find out what caused her style evolution and what she considers the biggest fashion mistake!

Understanding your body is the key to looking good and a trait found amongst all impeccably dressed fashionistas. While people shy away from talking about their bodies, these brave souls explain how they work their anatomies to their advantage

How would you describe your body type?

I would say I have an hourglass figure.

Has your body type changed over the last five years?

I used to be quite lean and thin naturally, but for the last few years it’s become hard to maintain my weight.

How has your style changed over the years?

My style has definitely become more laidback. It has also quite literally become a reflection of my personality.

In your opinion what is your most troublesome area?

My thighs!

How do you dress your body according to your body type?

I like monochromatic colours and simple cuts as they complement my body and easily hide my problem areas.

In your opinion what is the biggest mistake a person can make while dressing here?

Here people focus more on incorporating labels in their outfits, and don’t think about what looks good or fits with their personality. Style isn’t original or personal anymore. Also, I don’t like cluttered looks. I always notice someone whose style and ensemble is well put together.

Which silhouettes suit your body the most?

I prefer flared cuts to fitted silhouettes.

What is the one piece of clothing that you shy away from wearing and why?

I usually avoid vibrant colours and exaggerated garments. I am a minimalist!
