Ten-Second Takeaway

Bangalore-based The Sewing Machine is all about the now-trending culottes, crop tops, A-line skirts and free dresses.

Trending Now

Global fashion weeks were enough to remind us that culottes are going nowhere out of trend; not for a while, at least. And designer Ankita Bajaj Shankar has cashed on this with her collection. Culottes and palazzo pants in chambray, bold prints, and the good-old solids are prevalent here.

If you’re tired of going through e-commerce platforms with a million things to offer and sorting through the millions of filters, The Sewing Machine is an easy stop. It has quite a few options, and lets you shop for exactly what you want to shop for. 

As an example, this indigo pair can be worn to breeze through a tough day at work. We like that they also keep curvy girls in mind while making these; someone’s doing something right!

Skirting The Issue

Their A-line skirts with perfect neat pleats, prints, and modest lengths that stop at the calves can easily be worn to formal occasions as well as brunch. Archie Comics’ fans, this short skater skirt is totally going to make your day. Among the dresses, we like the long, unstructured and free printed dresses. This shirt-dress in abstract print and this floral cape are stealing our hearts, too.

The Sewing Machine’s collection of crop tops will not leave you disappointed, either, and the silk ones, especially, are quite elegant. Even the boxy crop top with toucans and the one with timeless polka dots are worth adding to the closet. They can be paired with the skirts or the culottes on-deck.

Cape Crusaders

The waistcoats, capes, and jackets can add an instant kick to your otherwise simple outfit. Hand-block printing and bead detailing define the waistcoats in vibrant colours and retro motifs., like this one in mustard that’s a total winner. Pair them with your ethnic best or a basic white kurta and jeans.

The long structured capes are also a great accessory to add some drama to a basic outfit with; we really like this minimalist one in grey and chevron print.
