Trend: in her Drapes ..

Drape-like outfits are my new crush, i like how they cover up or hide the body imperfections and yet it looks so good. it has this romantic feeling and look that Balanciaga and Donna Karan had mastered it in designing the 'new' drapes.

How would i wear my drapes?
ill add a biker jacket to break the femininity. or ill just keep it as it is, and add tough jewelry. it depends


By Balanciaga- this is a TRUE draped skirt, and the polka-dot tights are to die for( not literally =p), besides, gray is a favorite color of mine,

By Carolina Herera- simple gathered top, liked the tightness on the arms. a statement colored piece of jewelery will complete the look.
.
By Emanuel Ungaro, its actually a skirt and a top, too much color? maybe, but the dark tights tone the vibrant colors down.
.
By Roberto Cavalli- the AGELESS DRESS, simply draped, and the long sleeve just boosts the sophistication.
.
By Willow- a long cardigan with a draped back, i so can wear it with Shaila(Hijab), and its so Fall-ish!!

By Helmut Lang- this biker has a little drapery effect on the neck, getting the draped look without being too feminine.

ByDonna Karan- its almost like a wrap dress but with more drama.
By-Donna Karran -This is my biggest crush !! It looks amazing on its own, it reminds me of an Indian sari but with a modern twist.

Amazing post, I'm so in love with wonderful draping right now! The Helmut Lang jacket and Balenciaga skirt you feature here are to die for.
As for how I'd wear my draping, I just bought this draped jacket from BCBG: http://www.bcbg.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3711707&cp=2769127.2769074&view=all&clickid=cat_leftnav_txt&parentPage=family
It goes with absolutely everything - I love it best over a fitted black dress though!

draping is so beautiful, but it can also make you look bigger if its not done right!
