These perfectly draped pieces are reimagined in incredibly flattering silhouettes and make comfort top priority. From zip-up versions in fun prints or joyous colour-blocked versions—these pieces can be styled in multiple ways.
Shweta Kapur’s rani pink version is a perfect mood-booster. On its own, the bright hue will make sure you stand out in any crowd. For added drama, add an embellished cape jacket. Winged liner and crystal danglers is all you need to complete the look.
Punit Balana’s pre draped version in classic black and white checks all the boxes. Mirror work and the bandhini print give a traditional spin to the modernised silhouette. Team it with black lace-up block heels and vintage jewels.
