2020 was the year of ‘Fashion hibernation’ globally. Just like clothing, footwear trends also altered drastically. Above all, it simply felt ridiculous to step into heels and fashionable footwear to run to the grocery stores. Wearing flats, sneakers and pumps was the ideal choice.
However, with covid-19 restrictions lessening, there is more freedom to choose cooler footwear to enhance the outfits. Whether you are going to the office, to meet a friend, or going out to party; relax and put your best foot forward with these awesome footwear trends.
Khussay: Casual, Funky, and Comfortable
The leather handmade, super comfortable Khussay are a staple in every girl’s closet. Interestingly, from leather tanning to cutting and embroidery and sewing, the entire process is performed by skilled Pakistani artisans.
Khussay have evolved over the years. Wearing monotone khussay with a simple golden thread was the deal back then. However today, they come in so many funky color combinations, with awesomely intricate embroidery, hand-painting, embellishments and whatnot.
You can add a pair of khussay for each style of apparel in your closet. From funky neon colors to subtle pastels, khussay truly makes all your casual looks promising.

Embellished Slippers: Casual and Comfortable
Speaking of embellishments and studs, Pakistani women simply can’t keep their hands off of snazzy wardrobe items. Why wear simple-looking shoes when you can have all the fun looking attractive?
Most Pakistani women prefer sporting flat slippers because comfort, breeziness, swiftness, and agility are the keys to get daily chores done. You will see teachers, doctors, salespersons, housemaids, stay-at-home moms and everyone in between adorning slippers.
Hence, Pakistani slippers have taken a new turn and adding colorful embellishments have allowed wearers to match them with every outfit.
