We’re welcoming the 70s all over again with flowy silhouettes that are back with a bang! We’re here to show you just how you can set caution to the wind in silhouettes that are lighter than air. If you’re a newbie at working this trend, worry not. A rule of thumb if you find yourself confused is to work your flowy cuts with fitted separates. You just can’t go wrong with that.

Maxis you’ll want to live in
Amp up the drama with some added flounce. Floor-trailing maxis with flared trails and full skirts are all you need to set the ramp and the road ablaze. If skirts are your style, opt for flouncy cuts with thigh high slits that add a dose of sexy to your look. Here’s where you want to wear those sky-high heels!

Of hi-low tops and billowy kaftans
Soft chiffons and georgettes are gorgeous in tops featuring asymmetrical hems. They make for versatile separates, as they can be teamed with a tube skirt for the club and with denim shorts for the day.

The anarkali twirl
Quite often, less is more. If Anita Dongre’s Spring Summer 2014 collection at the Lakmé Fashion Week is anything to go by, subtlety is key. The queen of fashion sure knows how to make the simplest anarkali look like a vision. Take your cue from this billowing ice blue number that has us wanting more.

Ballooning shirt dresses
We love how this shirt dress redefines itself. Floor sweeping lengths and oversized, slouchy shirt style fuse to give us a silhouette that’s unique, yet easily wearable. Add a belt to lend some structure to the ensemble.

A cape escape
We’re welcoming the wonderful oddity that capes were once associated with. This season, lighter linens and cottons are springing up galore in the form of longer-than-ever capes that can easily be teamed with skinny jeans, hot shorts and textured skirts. To go ‘laxed from head-to-toe, throw on a pair ofüber slouchy palazzos.
