Cape style kurtis have made a huge comeback and have caught the attention of the fashion connoisseurs and influences across the globe.

Women are superheroes of everyone’s lives and they deserve to dress like one. Capes and robes have made a huge place for themselves in the world of vogue and many super glamorous celebs can be seen flaunting capes of all lengths and style. A stylish cape style kurta can work its magic on your whole personality and make you stand out from the crowd. Capes are available in a number of styles such as sheer capes, embroidered capes, long capes, printed capes, etc. See-through fabrics work best when it comes to designing a cape.

Here are some essential do’s and dont’s of wearing a cape style kurtis-   

  • Balance Out the Top And Bottom

Cape style kurtis are generally wide at the top due to the relaxed cape. They are best paired with cigarette pants, palazzos, skirts and leggings. It therefore becomes essential that your top is in proportion with your bottom. Disproportionate top and bottom would lead to one looking broader than the other. The larger attention should be placed at your waistline in a flattering manner. Women with heavier busts should avoid going in for too baggy or flairy capes as that would accentuate their upper body even more.

  • Play With Colors And Patterns

The best thing about cape style kurtis is that they can get as stylish as you want them to be. Even a simple fabric can look great when tailor-made in the cape style pattern. You can run your whole lot of imagination and work your personal charm on a cape dress, thus getting it customized. This piece of clothing has created a rage amongst celebs and designers due to its sheer style and glamour. These kurtis are available in a plethora of chic and playful colors for every season. While it is advised to opt for soft neutrals for the day, don’t shy away from going all bold for night parties with deep burgundy, opulent red or lively navy blue.


  • Be Mindful Of The Fabric

The drape and texture of a cape style kurti plays important role when it comes to highlighting your persona. Capes look best when crafted from a sheer, delicate fabric which lends drama to your whole look. Such capes are see-through and also allow for a little skin show. It is always best advised to steer clear of clinging hard fabrics that lend triviality to your look. For the casual wear, you can opt for capes in comfy cottons and silks.  


  • Mind Your Accessories

Accessories can turn up even the dullest outfit. If you’re opting for stylish cape style kurtis, make sure you choose the right minimalistic accessory to compliment your look. Steer clear of carrying sling bags as they are big no-no for cape dresses. Also, avoid wearing heavy jewelry on the neck as it would shift the attention away from the cape. A simple statement clutch or dangling earrings can do wonders to your cape style kurti look. Always opt for a single statement piece than incorporating too many smaller elements in your look. A simple designer watch or a diamond earring can also be great for the days you wish to go refined and sober. Choose your accessory according to the occasion you’re headed to!

  • The Combination of Black And Gold

You can never go wrong with the combination of black and gold colors in a cape style kurti. Nothing says chic like a black cape style kurti adorned with golden embellishments and delicate embroidery. This outfit looks fashionably contemporary while staying closing to the Indian roots. This color combination of black and gold is evergreen and can be worn to high-end parties, luxurious dinners, weddings, ceremonies and re-unions. Make sure that you incorporate more of black in your whole outfit. Complete your look with some swank gold jewelry.

  • Statement Shoes

Shoe contact before eye-contact is the motto of today’s generation. The love for stylish statement shoes is never ending. Since cape style kurtis are generally subtle and glam, they must be paired with swank shoes that lend drama to your look. Gold pumps, high stilettos or strappy metallic sandals make a great choice for cape style kurtis. Opt for darker shades of shoes to pair with nude kurtis whereas for bright and bold colored kurtis, go for pastel hued shoes.
