The definition of a flattering silhouette keeps changing with every season. At the moment, the one detail that has the power to make or break your outfit is the presence of tiers.

The layering and tiering of fabric in your ensemble is not only flattering but versatile enough to match a number of aesthetics—from cottagecore and casual to Indian wear and party dressing.


Stock up on these gorgeous tiered pieces that are flattering and flirty!

Single tiered dress

Add some oomph to an off-shoulder neckline with some gorgeous prints and a flattering tier, and you’ve got yourself a perfect holiday dress or a great brunch attire. The inverted V hem on the tier adds some shape and flow to the dress while the off-shoulder gives you the opportunity to flaunt OTT accessories like shoulder dusters or even a layered necklace. Enhance the boho vibe with gladiator sandals and you’re good to go!


Wearing a tiered jacket is one of the simplest and most efficient ways of adding texture and volume to your outfit. This voluminous white silk organza jacket uses the texture of ruffles and amalgamates it into a tiered design. The contrasting sleeves help balance the proportions of the jacket and make it the perfect piece to layer on.

Short layered dress

This playful and flirty piece is a must-have this season. The colour is subtle while the tiers create a great silhouette to twirl in, for all your Instagram boomerangs! The tie-up details on the shoulders add a fun detail. Pair this dress with sneakers or slip-on flats and you can have a fun daywear look.


In the mood to glam up? What could be better than a black satin skirt with a thigh-high slit? This skirt is the epitome of sultriness and the tiers create a drape that is flattering on all body types. Wear an all-black look or add a bustier corset top in a contrasting colour, put on your heels and party the night away. Don’t forget the slick-back hair and red lip.


Yes, the tiered trend has successfully made its way to the ethnic wear spectrum. However, have you ever noticed that the sharara is the OG when it comes to tiered apparel? Having been around for ages, the sharara is trending big because of its ornamental renditions along with the slow flair of the fabric that makes the tiers shine through. This Very Peri sharara ensemble is perfect for any puja and even for a cocktail dress code. Pair it with juttis and a potli bag and you’re all set.

Cut-out dress

This adorable pink cotton dress in Transcendent Pink has a lot of spunk. The triangle cut-out in the front adds oomph while the cut-out details on the sleeves add an irresistible playfulness. The tiers are simple and #SoCute! Paired with sneakers, this is the perfect brunch OOTD.


Alexa, play Aajkal Tere Mere Pyar Ke Charche! How can we talk about tiers and not mention Mumtaz’s iconic orange sari from this retro song? Get your hands on this tiered printed sari that blends the convenience of a lehenga with the charm of desi drapes. Flaunt your diamonds and polki sets and get grooving!

Casual top

Who says workwear has to be boring? This tiered top is proof that you can have a lot of fun with casual wear too. This Tiger Orange top with multi-coloured stripes has the right amount of colour play. The tiers add fluidity to the top making it perfect for the sultry weather. Wear it with jeans or palazzos and you’ve got yourself a great fit.
