Recently I posted some photos of my formal looks. And I started getting personal messages about posting a full picture of the dress I was wearing, or the jewelry or the shoes etc. And someone even asked which salon did the magic. So, I thought why not do a post of my favorite formal looks along with the detail of the outfit, jewelry, make up, hair style etc. So, I am going to write the best Party Wear 2018 Pakistani dresses Ideas for all of you. I am sure you would love to explore some trendy styles.
I present to you five ( 5 ) of my all time favorite formal looks for different wedding occasions. I have tried to include as much detail as I possibly could. I hope that it serves the purpose and shall collectively answer many of your questions. If you still have some questions or if you think I have missed something, please let me know by commenting below. Moreover, do not forget telling me which look is your favorite and why.
As I usually go for soft looks, so here is the round up for the same.
Look # 1 – Traditional Pink Embroidered Shirt with straight trouser
This look is from a walima that I attended. I had short hair then. And because I was wearing pink so I requested the make up artist to keep my look just very soft. And I think she did a pretty good job.
Dress:Bano Bazaar ,Faisalabad Pakistan
There are very good shops and lovely designs in Bano Bazaar. Because Faisalabad city is the hub of cloths and clothes related trends. If you ever get a chance, must visit. Also, it offers you a great window of negotiation. If you are a good negotiator, you can end up buying something really cool at a very reasonable price. My tip is to visit different shops and get the feel of the market before you buy. When you need the best party wear dress like salwar kameez, short kurtas, Ferrara, Garara then you would be able to explore a wide variety there.
Makeup and hair style: New look beauty salon, Lahore
My experience at New look was very good. Staff was very considerate. The make up artist was very good and was actually listening to what I wanted. But I think it’s a bit over-Priced. I paid around PKR 10,000/- for this.
Shoes: I wore silver wedge heels from Insignia with this dress. Heel was not very high
Jewelry: I wore silver jewelry. Ear rings, necklace and 2 wide Bangles (1 in each hand). Its my mother’s jewelry though. I borrowed from her for the day. Haha
Look # 2 –Angrakha style Peach Party dress 2018 with straight trouser and long and detailed multi-color patches on the plum dupatta borders
This look is from a mehndi function in family. As I was expected to move around a lot to greet guests. So, I kept my dress light in weight yet added some embroidery and little bit of style with different color patches at borders of my Dopatta. And let me tell you this dopatta is by far my favourite. There was no embroidery on it but still it looked gorgeous with the dress and multi colour gave mehendi function feel as well.

Dress: Liberty Market, Lahore
If you are not a regular buyer at Liberty Market, just keep in mind that its almost a replicate of Bano Bazaar. It also has very good margin of negotiation. Just never go high price. You can find many shops offering good work in reasonable price. Visit the market and many shops before you finally decide what to buy and where from.
Makeup and Hair style: Hifsa Khan Salon, Lahore
I loved their service. They are so quick and so considerate. My make up was done by a junior artist named Shazia. I loved her work. She added a detail of shimmer in my eye makeup although I asked her not to. But she insisted saying it will look great and later I liked it too. I don’t exactly remember the hair stylist, but I tried different hair stylist at that saloon, at different times and I loved it every time. It was totally affordable as well. I paid around PKR. 5000/- for this.
Jewelry: I wore just Jhumkay with this. Jhumkas were from a random shop in Liberty Market at its back side
Shoes: khussa from khussa level, Lahore
I wore stoned Khussa. It has two colored stones both silver and Golden. It was from KhussaMehel, Liberty for around Rs 3500.
