Today I am going to jump straight in to the topic of this post. ‘Cape-tivated’ is a capsule curated to give style inspiration on showcasing how an independent piece of clothing like a dressy cape can be styled. For a dinner night out with the darling or even a friend’s reception you can use these ideas to get creative and give a break to the usual sarees and lehangas or take them to the next level.
Look one, was styled keeping a more casual approach. It is a style statement . Allow me to show you ways on how to use these ideas to look different and effortlessly chic for various functions. Here I have used completely different pieces of cloth and brought them together to create a new look.
Manju here is wearing an ethnic pant with a black spaghetti top. Topped this with the cape she owns but only little change is I have styled the back to the front. I think this gives a more western take on the look.
You can also flip this pants and play with a nice large floral printed high waist flair skirt or a high waist jeans. You can also pair it with a pair of pleated metallic skirt.
Look two is the one I was talking about where you can style it for a reception night.
This red dress is from Jabong priced very reasonably. You can go browse in Jabong or Click here to check it out. While this simple dress is elegant on its own I added the cape on to it to give a completely different look.
You can notice how the cape is now turned backward giving a high neck style to this outfit. Its classy and I would totally dance in it. You have inspirations in fashion like Sonam Kapoor giving goals with their caped ethnic wear, why not play with it and adopt it in your wardrobe style too?
For accessory tips, clearly its a high neck here so invest in some statement earring that will do all the taking and carry a clutch to stand out.
I hope this post gave you all a few ideas on how you can change the styling game for your next dinner with bae or a wedding that may be approaching. The best part is for my ladies who feel a little conscious about flabby arms pieces like this is a great investment and yet so stylish. If you do end up using one after this post tag ‘theflawsomefashion’ on instagram and I will feature you. 🙂 ❤
As always I look for feedback and suggestion. Please do send it across. I would love to grow up in my venture ensuring I provide my TFF folks with all that will help them.
