If you think Cape is categorically reserved for the colder months, then you need a major fashion update. Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2015 has been predominated with this style, and we can’t complain. However, when you think “capes”, clear your head of the knitted variety and rather percieve soft feminine fabrics, intricately embroidered collars and laser cuts.

The trend, we believe, will spread like wild fire, making it a summer essential. Get your cape dose from these designers or find your way to a custom-stitched one.

Shoulder Cape

This micro cape works pretty well with long outfits, which help in balancing the length. Pair it with a maxi dress or a tube jumpsuit to make the most of it. Archana Rao’s show exhibited a white laser cut shoulder cape paired with a beige gown.

Long Cape

Salita Nanda’s collection featured a long cape that added drama and glamour to the outfits. A long cape is an instant way to glam up an outfit, if simplicity is not your cup of tea.

Cape Dress

If your cape love knows no bound, wear it long enough to be passed off as a dress. Fashion designer Arunima Majhi’s show at LFW SR15 featured an eye-catching mint green cape dress. That would not only make you look feminine but also hide a few unfortunate flaws.

Embroidered Cape

These capes work perfectly well when you are planning to go indo-western. Kiran Uttam Ghosh’s neutral, embroidered net capes look feminine and elegant.

Arpita Mehta’s floral embroidered capes exude more of a young, vibrant vibe, ideal for a floral child!

Metallic Cape

These are dramatic, and royal. Designer Vasundhara featured capes that look luxurious and regal. For a quick update to your ethnic ensemble, this one never fails!
