The fashion month, which would have been ruled by a bevy of trends otherwise, saw only one this time: the return of the classic silhouettes. There was comfort on the runway (and off it) in terms of big, comfortable dresses, return-to-workplace kind of trousers, skirts and tops that remind you of vacations, and going-out clothes that you’d want to wear regardless of where you’re traveling to – even if it means only from the bedroom to the couch.
6-months at home has made us believe that you could own the trendiest of styles, but when it comes to comfort, we will ultimately look toward outfits which are not bound by the ephemeral nature of fads. We looked homeward for some inspiration in nailing classic looks only to discover Masoom Minawala in this snug pre-draped saree by designer Vedika M.
A modern twist on the evergreen saree, this pre-pleated crepe variant is just the right amount of modern that makes it a must-have in the wardrobes of the most trend-savant New-Age Indian women. Vedika M’s latest collection which is chock full of stripes on outfits in sugary confectionery-inspired hues is reinstating our love for normcore.
We love how Masoom Minawala has worn this simple pre-draped saree and elevated it to a truly glamorous, occasion-worthy style. The pearl necklace does much of the job and lends the overall look a vintage-inspired vibe. She’s without her signature Jacquemus Le Chiquito mini bag but has stuck to her preferred tiny totes style with a pearl-embellished Indian version of it.
With Diwali around the corner and the wedding season just starting, we suggest you choose this chic pre-draped saree if you want style and comfort to not be mutually exclusive in an outfit. The best part? It’s available on Aza and at 19.5K, you don’t have to drop a bundle on it, too!
To give the look a more festive feel, we suggest tying the hair in a chignon and keeping the makeup clean with a fresh, dewy face. Swap those heels with comfortable juttis, and you’re good to go!
