KARACHI: Another year, another Independence Day has arrived. While rallies, flag hoisting ceremonies and fun activities mark today, we also feel a sense of pride seeing a sea of white and green outfits.

There are more ways than one to incorporate the Pakistani flag colours into your ensemble. Take the lead from stars such as Mawra Hocane, Ayesha Omar and Maya Ali by sporting a pop of green in super stylish ways.

From contemporary to traditional, here is your guide to fashionably showing your inner patriotism for Independence Day.

Go green-eyed for traditional charms

You don’t have to be looking like a leprechaun by wearing all green. The key is to incorporate the shade into your ensemble, like Ayesha did. This outfit by Generation is a great day-time option. Exuding traditional charm, we love how Ayesha added pops of green in her necklace and bracelets. A bright purple dupatta breaks the monotony of one shade and looks super pretty.

Neon is still so in so why not wear neon green on Independence Day? Considering the rainy weather, a wind breaker jacket like Baaji actor Amna Ilyas could be both practical and stylish.  Add a white T-shirt and sneakers for the added casual effect.

Spice up your neon a bit by adding different shades of green to your outfit. Mehryn Tiwana sure knows how it’s done by wearing dual shaded heels with her neon green sweater and we can’t get enough of the colour combination.

Well, we don’t know if it’s a coincidence or not but Maya Ali and Sheheryar Munawar are posing for a picture in style looking somewhat like a Pakistani flag. Style it-girl Maya certainly understands that blazers are trending right now and this shade of green is perfect for Independence Day. Sheheryar, of course, looks dapper in his creme checkered suit.

Heer Maan Ja star Hareem shows us how to rock a green jumpsuit in all the right ways. We love how she’s accessorised the outfit with green hoop earrings and a high messy bun. Add a kimono or loose blazer for a trendy effect. The aquamarine shade the actor is sporting is a great colour contrast too.

We love how patriotic Mawra is in her Pakistan first T-shirt and flag. Draw inspiration from her casual look by adding just a plain green bracelet. As most of us, coloured eyeshadow is currently trending so add a pop of green to your lids for a stand-out look!
