Chiffon Skirts and Tops

Chiffon is a very sheer, feminine fabric that glides and moves with the body. It lends itself beautifully to flowing skirts. Chiffon is a plain-weave, lightweight, sheer, transparent fabric made of cotton, silk, or synthetic fiber. Under a magnifying glass it resembles a fine net or mesh which allows chiffon to have this see-through property.

Chiffon skirts and tops come in variety of colours and designs. These skirts and tops are always worn with an inner because of its transparency. The skirts are generally pleated ones with elastic at the waist to give the flowing look. The most popular skirts and tops are the printed ones with eye catching designs and traditional patterns. Printed chiffon skirts are very common. Bandhini prints based on ancient regional Indian design are used on chiffon skirts. Hand block prints are also very popular. In chiffon Kurtas, traditional chikan embroidery is also popular. Full sleeves chiffon tops without a lining in the sleeves give a beautiful flowing look and are very popular. Some chiffon skirt has graceful sequins and embroidery motifs, mirrors all over it. Resham work and gold embroidery looks fabulous in chiffon skirts and tops.

Chiffon being a summer friendly fabric, the chiffon skirts with a matching top or kurti give a very cool and trendy look.
