Make Maxis Cool Again With These Styling Tips and Tricks.
November 15, 2019
Most of us pay attention to our maxi dresses when we are planning for a beach vacation. We completely fail to identify the versatility of the stunning maxi dresses that are sitting in our wardrobes just because we do not know how to style maxi dress. They are not only versatile but also super comfortable due to their flowy design, extremely flattering on all body shapes and sizes, and can be styled for any occasion or mood with our tips and tricks.
- Sneakers for that casual look: The world is raving about dad’s shoes at the moment. However, if chunky sneakers aren’t quite your style, then go for the classic ones and pair it with your maxi dress. They are comfortable as well as super on-trend.
- Blazer for the board room: Add a little feminine touch to your office wear by swapping your pantsuits or formal dresses with a maxi dress. Look for elements that give the maxi dress a formal touch like a collared neckline, smart stripes, and soft colours. Our Pink Princess Dress fits the bit perfectly. Now layer the piece with a well-structured blazer and a pair of smart oxford shoes.
- Colour block: bold colour combinations are the easiest way to make an eye-catching style statement. Take, for example, our vivid Bright Orange Maxi Dress with Triangular motifs or our lemon yellow maxi dress. Pair these bright hues with equally bright complementary colours like yellow or fuchsia. You can do this with shoes, jackets, scarves, or accessories.
- Layering is caring: Give a completely different look to your maxi dress by wearing a turtleneck pullover underneath, or a white button-down, or a graphic tee. Layering works best with sleeveless dresses and those with strappy sleeves. This is the best way to make your maxi dressed work even when the air turns chilly during the winter months.
- Add grunge to florals: Floral maxi dresses like our Darling Daisy Maxi Dress in Blush Pink is the epitome of femininity and summer fashion. The maxi dress can obviously be styled on its own, but what’s the fun in wearing it in a way that does not showcase some unique style. Juxtapose the feminine style with some edgy elements like a motorbike jacket or a denim jacket. Choose lace-up combat boots for your shoes to complete this head-turning outfit.
- Give a beachy vibe: we all know a beach vacay is incomplete without a maxi dress, but you can recreate the refreshing look for a day about in town or for brunch with your girlfriends. Simply add a straw bag as an accessory that does all the talking. Refrain from donning flip flops; instead, go for gladiator sandals from our collection. If you choose to go for a maxi dress that has a deeper neckline, then wear a beautiful lacy bralette to complete the look.
So, why wait? Go maxi dress online shopping and pick out some of the stunning pieces to grace your wardrobe. Our extensive collection features special occasion maxi dresses, casual ones, and everything in between.

Bandhani Dupatta – Interesting Facts and How to Style It
October 28, 2019
An Indian woman’s closet is incomplete without streams of colourful scarves called dupatta or churni cascading in one corner. Among these, bandhani mirror work dupatta is a standout, and we will unveil the secret of this beauty today and tell you how to style it in a plethora of ways.
Historians are of the opinion that the existence of the art form dates back to the Indus Valley Civilization as early as 4000 B.C. Evidences of bandhani have been excavated in Egypt, and there has been numerous mentions of this handicraft in the celebrated literary works of IbnBatuta, Barra’s Harshacharita as well as Alexander the Great. Miniature paintings from the 16th century, as well as the illustrations on the walls of Ajanta Caves, which date back to the 6th century, give us a peek into this ancient art form of dyeing textiles.
The art of Bandhani hails from the Khatri community of Gujarat. In the present day, most of the bandhani dupattas are made with painstaking patience and skilled hands of craftsmen in Rajasthan, Gujarat, Sindh, Parts of Punjab, and Tamil Nadu. Quality silken fabrics are pinched and tied tightly with thread to create a myriad of patterns. Then they are dip dyed. Once the fabric is ready, it is stretched with hands to take of the ties and reveal the dots of white that make the design.
If you are planning to get yourself one of these vibrant beauties, then make sure to go for the ones which make use of good quality silk and also have some shimmering mirror work on it to make an even more gorgeous statement.
- One of the easiest ways to perk up an all-white churidar and kurta combo is with the addition of a brilliantly coloured bandhani dupatta around your neck. However, if you are going for a special event, then there is no harm in trying a different, more dramatic drape with maybe a white regal anarkali suit. Create an effortless look by draping and pinning the dupatta to one of your shoulders and resting the other end on your arms casually.
- Create a unique saree look by draping a plain solid coloured saree, like black, in the usual nivi style. Then take the colourful dupatta and rest it on the vacant shoulder. It will not only add some pop of colour to an all-black look but also add a ton of grace to a simple saree look.
- You can transform your casual tank top and skinny jeans look if you know how to style a bandhani dupatta. You can simply throw it around your neck like a scarf or tie it into a cool shrug. To turn it into a shrug, fold your bandhani dupatta into half. Take the two top corners and tie them into a knot. This will create two armholes when you unfold the dupatta from centre where you created the knot. And voila! Your easy 2 min dupatta shrug is ready to roll.

However, a subtle Indian print like batik will definitely add some element of visual interest to the saree without making it too flashy.
