To make it easier, I have categorized how you can wear tulip shalwar as per your physique and body shape.


Tulip shalwar for skinny girls


The struggle is real for skinny girls, if you are slim and smart, everyone in the friends and family has remarks to make. They will ask you stuff like, “Khana nhi milta” “Hawa se urr na jana” “Kuch khaya kro beta” etc. Any dress you wear can be challenging because you have a slim physique. This time, you got nothing to worry about, because the tulip pants are as much comfy and suitable for skinny as they are for bulky women. You need to pick your tulip pant carefully and make sure it is not too tight. Pick one with a little flare, some embroidery at the end like this one rocked by ever hot Mawra hoccaine. Make sure that the shirt you pick is enough of a length so that you can look absolutely gorgeous in your new outfit.

Well yes, you can keep it simple yet delicate like Mawra, or go all fancy like the other picture and choose the right accessories alongside.


Tulip shalwar for bulky ladies


Skinny people think being skinny is tough, but ask someone who is bulky and you will realize the struggle they have. It is almost close to breaking into tears when you buy your favorite suit and still don’t look good in it because you are fat. The struggle is real and I feel you because I have been there. However, tulip pants can save you the tears and the disappointment because they can well suit a bulky person. You can carry it in several styles like with a casual kurti like this, not really sure about the Kala chasma though 😛


The other way around is to try a tulip pant with an open shirt, this helps you because it shows less of your body fat and more of the dress.Here is a formal wear idea from yasmin zaman for an open shirt with samosa shalwar


You can also use a tulip shalwar with baggy shirts because they will make you look more stylish and superb. Like in the pictures below
