There’s an allure about draping that I find sleek and stylish. Nothing like that elegant, flowing, Grecian feel, and knowing that it takes great tailoring plus attention to detail to achieve the perfectly draped piece. It says ladylike luxe at its best.
I have my favourite designers for those classic, fluid, draping styles that cascade down the feminine form in such glorious luxeness.
I love love love Anglomania by Vivienne Westwood, the asymmetric, draping aesthetic is simply exquisite – with just the right portion of edginess. I have big plans to collect Anglomania dresses.
Karen Millen is as exquisite as it gets on the high street. The tailoring is flawless and draping done to perfection, it could easily pass for high-end designer gear. I especially love the coat, I mean, how do you get it right with a fabric that thick?
We can’t deny the sartorial perfection of Alexander McQueen, so it’s no surprise that the label gives us some generous draping; from both diffusion line McQ and the main line.
My go to online store, Asos does not ever disappoint when it comes to the lower priced versions of our secret obsessions. They also give us some great draped pieces.
