Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone, Dia Mirza, Raveena Tandon, Ameesha Patel and others to play up the Roman touch in Mumbai’s party circuit.
Tunic — the garment inspired from ‘tunicas’ worn by the Romans, has trendiliously carried forward a cut which has evolved in a trendy, sensuous avatar.
BT recently spotted Priyanka looking fabulous in a shimmery number. Deepika Padukone chose a smart blue cotton tunic, and teamed it with a hairband and flat gladiator sandals. We call it the Mumbai Glam look, which is effortless in its comfort factor yet high on the style quotient.
Keeping effortless comfort as the common USP for tunics, city-based designers give a thumbs up to this trend saying for the weather we are experiencing in November, tunics are the best drape at parties, social dos and a casual day with friends.
Designer Nandita Mahtani who has been championing the tunic look for a while time now, said, “It’s my preferred style this season. Flowy fabrics give a good fall and a fabric band on the waist can give the entire ensemble a hip touch.” Sashaying a youthful appeal in a white tunic, Dia Mirza added, “Looking pretty in a tunic is so simple.” Designers Gayatri Khanna and Nikasha Tawadey couldn’t agree more.
A look which can be made apt for all, be it knitted, digital-printed, flouncy shouldered or one-shoulder, tunics are here to stay. Designer Maheka Mirpuri added her mix and match funda, “Tunics can be sported by women who have good legs. For others, I’d say, team the tunic with a pair of lycra churidaars. And you are sorted.”
