Another big trend is the crop top. From Anita Dongre to Payal Singhal, Klitche and Shruti Sancheti, navel-baring blouses, tees and jackets were paired with skirts, pants, or even dressy lehengas. Given that the midi-skirt is making a comeback, these tops are a keeper. Most of the collections will be available in a few weeks, and Anita Dongre’s is priced at Rs. 11,000 onwards.
