Four Ways To Wear Long Shirts

Long kameez or solo shirts have always been in fashion. They are a perfect way to add your own touch to an outfit and bring spice to office work, parties, get-togethers, weddings, or any other formal or informal events. Few years back career women would buy open cloth and will custom design long shirts to wear over white or black shalwar and dupatta. The idea was to own multiple shirts with a designated colour of shalwar and dupatta, and wear a different outfit everyday with a different shirt. They would wear these custom made shirts to their work. This trick made fashion affordable for the workingwomen and also gave them a chance to do fashion in their own style.



In recent years, designers and boutique brands have made it easier for everyone by making long shirts widely popular, accessible, and affordable for everyone. Now the women don’t need to go spend time pink out the colour, print, and design for their long shirts. All they need to do is go to a store or a boutique and buy long shirts to their heart’s desire. This wide availability has also introduced the long shirt fashion to all the women and not just limited to career women. Housewives, school girls, university students, fashionistas, all are able to enjoy these long shirts in whatever way they want to.

There are many ways you can wear these long shirts. Before women wore them with shalwar, but now a days, especially in the west, you can wear them with tights, formal pants, shorts, and jeans. Instead of wear them with a dupatta, you can wear them with long coat, blazer, bolero, and crop tops.

Here are four ways our models are showcasing these long shirts.


This beautiful pink-peach kameez with contrast colour karahai is paired with a pure silk Banarasi shawl. The shawl not only enhances the beauty of the kameez, it also becomes an accessory to the outfit. There are plenty of ways you can wear the shawl, wear it in your neck in European style or wear it around your shoulders, accessorize it to your liking.


This teal kameez is paired it with a kundan and pearl necklace. The necklace adds a spark to this cotton kameez and brings it up a notch, making it perfect to wear to one of the many pre-wedding celebrations. This outfit is dressed up enough to enjoy a little family masti during the wedding events but is also simple enough if you don’t feel like dressing up too much.


The brown kameez is paired with a complementary rope dupatta or chun wala dupatta. The dupatta enhances and compliments the beautiful thread work going doing the middle of the kameez. The dupatta further adds a simplicity and calmness to the kameez that is full of work.


You can wear these shirts in all the ways mentioned above or you can wear them just as they are. This long kameez is equally beautiful, elegant, party-ready, and office perfect as all the other styles. Wear the kameez as it is and have people compliment you on it’s simplicity, beauty, and elegance.
