Designers the world over are flooding their runways with swathes of net, chiffon and gauze, transforming otherwise mundane looks into games of peek-a-boo!
Sheer layers have the wonderful ability to keep you looking sexy and demure at the same time, and unlike other layers, keep you feeling as cool as a cucumber (pass the gin and tonic please!).
Take this Ridhi Mehra outfit: we love her twist on the traditional: rather than a kurta with dhoti pants, she gives us a net cape with gold embroidery, worn over a crop top to balance the volume of dhoti pants. Perfect for those days when you don’t want to completely bare you stomach. Wear it with your hair tied high, and a pair of earrings to complete the modern look.
Nothing does sheer better than net. We are totally crushing on this white net sari-gown with gold applique flowers by Rina Dhaka. Light and easy to wear, net is perfect to keep you on trend on these hot summer evenings. Wear it with barely-there make up and simple hair to channel your inner Greek goddess.
Never failing to turn a trend on its head, Payal Singal amazes us once again with this net lehenga skirt. Don’t worry ladies, the look comes with a pair of black leggings to keep your modesty intact! Stack on oodles of arm candy and a pop of bright pink lipstick to wow the crowds.
