Draped cotton candy pink dresses are sweet for spring. Try them on in sensuous crepe or stretch jersey or satiny or chiffon silk. The draped appearance can give a slim or athletic figure an illusion of curves while adding glamor.

Entertainment: Alicia Keys "Unthink-able" Music Video featuring Drake

May 12, 2010

My honey dedicated this song to me and I just heard it for the first time last week. The video is a little confusing but I’m loving Alicia Keys’ draped dress and jewelry. The video spans different eras from the 1950s to the present. Rapper Drake co-wrote the song with her and sings background vocals. Thanks for the video Necole Bitchie!

Wardrobe 101: Draping

November 2, 2009

It’s all about the draping.

Draping in fashion has been around for centuries. From togas to sarongs, the draping method has created a series of looks that are downright sensual as they are unique. The use of extra fabric helps create a draped look with little effort. The trend isn’t going anywhere any time soon either.

Draping showed up in several collections for the spring 2010 season. Dresses, coats, skirts, and tops dominated the runways. The use of more fabric in draping creates illusion and glamor. Designer Vivienne Westwood is a master of this type of design and includes it in her collections.

Draped garments are perfect for work or cocktail hour. I just bought a draped skirt from Zara for around $40 and it’s the perfect garment to wear with a simple blouse for day or with a dressier top for night. Donna Karan implements draping into many of her matte jersey dresses as does Marc Jacobs and Emanuel Ungaro. The key to great draping is to find something that fits your body style and makes you feel comfortable.

Get the look of the goddesses with draping. Draped dresses, shirts, and skirts give your look the sensual feel of motion. Soft draping works for the day while elaborate draping goes well for night. Fabrics like matte jersey and silk crepe fall neatly against your body. In need of curves? Give your frame the illusion of curves with draping.
