Cape – c/o Eclat by Prerika Jalan | Pants – Zara | Earrings – Periwinkle | Shoes – Zara | Sunglasses – Rayban
When it comes to traditional wear there is always this urge to try something contemporary and unconventional to stand out from the usual. Most of us style concious folks are eager to reinvent and experiment with even the most basic anarkali or an opulent lehenga. A cape is one such piece which can help you add a dash of novelty and help the ensemble look anything but monotonous.
éclat by Prerika Jalan’ is a label that defines the love for fashion. A mix of aesthetics and technique this label is for the woman of today. Breaking the stereyotype, the collections are made with a lot of precision and research based on the avant garde philosophy . With the juxtaposition of the right design and the right styling,the label brings out all the elements of design visible to the eye. Each piece in every collection showcases the brilliant play of pattern making and draping. The key being finish and technique to bring out every piece at the label.
The color and the beautiful intricate embroidery work on the cape exudes more of a young, vibrant vibe. The fabric adds that whimsical vibe to the cape with a touch of elegance to it.
For those who are unaware, a cape is an outer garment which drapes the wearers upper body, falling loosely from the shoulders and comes in varied lengths from cropped to longer length which are usually high in the front and low from back.
This outfit will be perfect for any evening functions from sangeet to cocktail parties and even reception. The conventional way to pair a cape like this would be with dhoti pants. Courtesy of the seventies palazzo pants are everywhere. Lately I have come across an array of indian looks rather I would say indo-western looks incorporating palazzo pants.
For the styling and makeup as the cape itself is a statement piece I kept the accessories pretty simple with a pair of earrings and some light contouring and a swipe of bold lip color. Depending on the event one can tweak these details and vary the accessories and makeup accordingly.
Incase you are wondering and ready to pack your cape only to remove it till the next shaadi invitation arrives. Stay tuned for the next post…… To be continued
