This time in India Couture week, we saw the design juggernauts reinventing the royal past in their new collection. From Mughal to Persian and Rajasthan palaces all were brought to runway through jaw-dropping couture outfits. But besides big shows like these for occasion wear also, we note how looking royal has become the go-to trend. It’s splendour guaranteed to your look. Even in jewellery and other accessories, the weight of the character has increased with more structure and layer. And our favourite must-haves are jacket and drapes. To have a princely affair, the key is channeling style fit with sleek tailoring and luxe fabrics.
Before the arrival of all the festivities, we reminisce a gamut of heritage arts found in Syasya. #Looksuave expresses the best sartorial moments of Sasya in a photo story along with fashion blogger Astha Modi from BlabberCat.

Be bold, be brave, be yourself. Live a life of no regrets -S & N. A traditional bands with a belt and an asymmetrical hem. A modern version of age-old customs,this piece is the top pic for winter wedding functions and parties. Sophisticated drapes and silhouettes was my pick from the store.
Right out of a portrait from palatial walls narrating tales of love and war and a lot more splendour; a cheerful melange of colours that repaint our modest attempt to look royal so simply nowadays. The ocean and moss green is a beautiful colour from the royal palate. Dhoti and embroidered crop top with a floor-length jacket set designed by Ridhima Bhasin was Fashion blogger Astha’s pick from the store. Pistachio and duck-egg blue are also colours to look out for from the same family.

How midnight looks like when stitched together with motifs and buttoned right till the collar spells authority. If not done right, layering can confuse the visual. So for this shoot, while layering pieces we made sure that different separates don’t project different ideas. Even while putting together a look from your scattered wardrobe, wear and edit what doesn’t feel right. Deeper hues of blues is definitely a good investment piece this winter for a nocturnal bridal bash.
