Madiha Iftikhar - Gloriously off-kilter

If you were one of the millions of fans of hit dramas like Sarkar Sahab, Kitni Girhain Baaki Hain, or if you are a morning show fanatic then you already know Madiha Iftikhar. Iftikhar has been part of the drama industry for several years now. She established herself as a bankable supporting star soon after entering the Pakistani drama industry – an industry having a slew of supporting stars.

Madiha is on a roll. Her magic stems from her range, which runs from dramas like Partition Aik Safar, Dil Dard Dhuan and many more. Possessing leading lady looks and chops with a character actor’s transformative ability, Madiha Iftikhar is nothing less than fantastic. Here, she has us enthralled with her outfits. From ravishing midis, and prints to channelling her sultry side in high gleam leather, Iftikhar is high on glamour.

Let’s start with comfort dressing i.e. the midis. If your sartorial goal is balancing style and comfort, then a midi dress or skirt ticks all the boxes. This season, take cue from Madiha and ditch your maxis and pants, let this mid-length steal the spotlight. What makes this wardrobe hero perfect is that it's versatile enough to go post-work cocktails to weekend brunches.

Speaking of comfort, a button-down shirt is one of the most versatile pieces in a woman's wardrobe. It can be dressed up for work or dressed down for a casual day out. While there are countless ways to wear a button-down shirt, there are certain combos we girls always fall back on.

With the right fit, a dress shirt plays on classic menswear trends in a way that feels unexpectedly feminine.

Moving on to the most polished piece you can have in your wardrobe; leather pants. With their timeless appeal and current popularity, you may have invested in some faux leather pants already. Here, Madiha gives her stamp of approval to this look, and seems like this is the most fun pair of pants in her wardrobe. Proving that bold trousers are never a bad idea, the actor opted for not-your-basic pants and styled them like a pro.
