In the world of Pakistani women's fashion, the top, trousers, and a dupatta are the elements of a perfect ensemble. But mostly trousers are left plain or matched with the top and the design elements are only focused towards the top and dupattas.
While plain trousers can balance the look of the ensemble, its styling can really elevate the entire look. In this guide, we will explore the world of women's unstitched trousers, discussing their types, fabric choices, and tips for achieving a look that is bound to draw attention.
Types of Trouser Styles
Unstitched trouser fabric can be used in a variety of ways. You can get it stitched as a shalwar or one of the various trouser types discussed below:
1. Straight-cut Trousers
Straight-cut or cigarette pants have a straight narrow cut, perfect for creating a sophisticated look. The best part about this style is that it is perfect for both formal and casual occasions.
2. Palazzo Pants
Palazzo-style trousers do not only offer comfort, but also exude elegance. Palazzo pants work well with fitted tops and most suitable as casual wear. However, many women also prefer wearing palazzo pants for work for getting through the day comfortably.
3. Wide-leg Trousers or Culottes
Wide-leg trousers or culottes look great for giving a sense of drama. Although this style works well with plain fabric, printed fabric for the trouser makes this style stand out, especially if you are wearing co-ord sets or pairing it with fitted plain tops.
Alkaram studio has a wide range of unstitched 2-piece outfits that have printed trouser fabric which works great for the wide-legged style.
4. Tapered Trousers
Tapered trousers have a narrow, angled leg that narrows towards the ankle. This style is perfect for people who have a pear-shaped body but don’t want to wear wide-legged trousers or palazzos. Since tapered trousers offer a modern and tailored look, they are suitable for office wear along with casual wear.

Tight or overly large trousers can reflect a poorly maintained wardrobe especially if you’re going for a straight-cut style or a tapered look. So, you must ensure accurate measurements for your waist, hips, and inseam. This way you will have trousers that fit perfectly and look just right for you.
Choose Professional Tailoring
Select a tailor for who can create a customized fit for you according to your requirements.
Round pearl buttons, wooden buttons, and intricate laces can completely elevate the look of a trouser. Consider a trouser that is stitched plainly and another one embellished with a matching lace – you will see a great difference in the look that each gives off.
Follow care instructions for your chosen fabric to keep your trousers looking fresh and elegant. For trousers that you wear on special occasions, consider drycleaning rather than washing on a cold cycle with harsh detergents.
