Hello all you beautiful people out there! It is that time of the year again!! Our weekends are dominated by Christmas parties and Secret Santa Surprises; delicious treats and gifts, what else you need!!
The jovial atmosphere, i also feel that the wintery wind has something to do with the change in people’s attitude ( pleasant weather equals pleasant attitude 😁), calls for some wonderful clothing too!
The fashion scene is dominated by sweaters, cardigans, stockings, caps, mufflers! Unlike other cities, we don’t have the luxury of enjoying winter dressing to the fullest as it never gets too cold here! But light layering doesn’t hurt anyone.
Ethnic lovers don’t you worry, we got you covered!
Light layering the ethnic way!!
Cotton Heavy Flare Capes are really comfortable and airy for light layering. You can invest in a colour which goes with a lot of your outfits so you can restyle it over and over again! It adds the much needed drama to the outfit also is a good accompaniment to your basic cotton trousers and top!

You can also style this with beige, white, black, yellow, olive green, teal blue – it will add the pop of colour and will keep you warm too during these pleasant temperatures in Mumbai!
NEHRU JACKETS : We have been obsessed with nehru jackets from our childhood days! Usually pairing them up with silk suits works wonders! Here we have tried to amp it up by pairing it with a saree and a maxi dress! And to our pleasant surprise it looks wonderful, let you have the ethnic asthetic look and bonus points for keeping you warm!
