Cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan has been a style icon in his country.
Now that the 65-year-old is also set to become the prime minister of Pakistan as he gears up to take the oath of office on August 11, the social circle is abuzz with what they are calling ‘Naya Pakistan (New Pakistan)’.
Many of Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf members who emerged victorious have their own distinctive style. While there is an expectation of a ‘Naya Pakistan’ to emerge out of this political reversal, it seems the country is also set to embrace the party’s ‘Naya’ style as well.

With his inimitable personality, the 65-year-old, since his cricketing days, has never failed to impress people across the globe.
After giving some serious style goals over the years, Khan is now often seen rocking the classic white-on-white salwar kameez. Black sunglasses are also his style staple.
