Independence Day dress code: How to pair green with white

Published: August 13, 2014

As autumn makes its way to Pakistan, we give you the green signal to add some colour to your look.

Keeping up with the spirit of Independence Day, we share with you five fervour-able ways to pair various shades of green with white.

A classy white-collared shirt with folded sleeves over cropped straight pants in lime green is a quirky pairing. You can wear white pointed heels to give your ensemble an edge. Finish your look with your choice of chunky bangles or a necklace as seen in the picture.

We summon all the dapper men to stylise their look with a basic green polo shirt and white shorts or straight pants, if they wish to opt for a more sophisticated look. Wear brown sandals or loafers to complete this simple and smart ensemble. And why not keep a slight scruff to add some va va voom to this hot avatar?

Want to remain traditional this Independence Day? Wear a dark green plain kurta matched with an off-white churidar or tights. Glamorise your look with a necklace and traditional bangles and khussas. Local celebrity and Humsafar star Mahira Khan sensationally pulls off this look.

Wearing a white collared button-down linen shirt with light green shorts is a dapper combination for men. Folded sleeves and classic Ray-Bans will elevate your attire. This simple and casual look for men will allow them to remain comfortable while enjoying a day in or day out.

Crop tops being bang-on trend these days, so it would be fa-shio-ntastic to incorporate them into your look. Wear a chiffon crop top paired with a green high-waisted long cotton skirt. A grey and black patterned messenger bag with a touch of green and white will go perfectly with this Bohemian chic look. Plus, flat black sandals go with anything!
