Hey Lovely People 🙂
How you all are doing ? It has been a long time since I have written a post and I was dying to write this one. 🙂 Hope you were as eager to read the new post and hence without further ado, let me jump into the main content of the blog.
I always love experimenting when it comes to fashion.Wearing old clothes in new ways,mixing different pieces and creating new styles,cross-dressing,so on. And I thoroughly adore how fashion today has evolved from beauty to identity. It is more about creating trends, taking inspiration from history,art and culture. One such interesting piece of clothing that dates back to 10th century and has been in and out of fashion over the years is the ‘cape’ .
Formerly, the cape was worn to symbolize the rank and occupation of the wearer. In Victorian era, it was a hallmark of high fashion,which brought the scarlet capes into picture. Scarlet capes were bright red capes that were worn by women with good societal background. With the onset of modern-era, the capes were no more a symbol of high society or style but a significant fashion accessory and provide some great layering options.
For this post, I have paired two different capes with the same pair of jeans and slip top,which shows how you can create stunning styles with the basic pieces in your wardrobe. In the first look I am using a cape with flower motifs and paired it with ethnic silver jewellery to give it a classic indo-western twist. For the second look, I have replaced the cape with a Lacey sleeveless red one.I got this one stitched from a local tailor in Indore at a very nominal price and used to wear it with an ethnic suit.While playing around with the different pieces in my wardrobe, I created this look which gives my modern ensemble a desi twist.
I always feel that fusion wear is like a breath of fresh air that can brighten up any monotonous outfit. Moreover, adding silver jewellery to an indo-western look immediately lifts up your style game. This look can be easily worn in festivals or wedding functions if you are not someone who likes heavy Indian outfits. All you need to do is put together the right pieces and voila you will have a great ensemble in no time.
Hope you love the pairings.Looking forward to your lovely comments and feedback !!
HAPPY WEEKEND 🙂
