Jersey is a type of clothing woven out of natural (cotton and wool) or synthetic fibers. Draped Jersey is a women’s clothing style, and the name comes from their resemblance to folded patterns in a drape. Draped Jersey tunics, tops, and dresses are tailored for exact body fitting in short, long, three-quarter or sleeveless patterns.
There is huge scope for experimenting with necklines in a Draped Jersey style. The drapes are prominent either below the neckline or on either side below the shoulder or run from one side of the waist up to the opposite shoulder or down to the knees creating a stylish draped hemline. Halter neck and Strapless jersey dresses make a great style statement for those with flattering body types. Knee length draped jersey skirts are a hit among tall leggy women. The style is also popular among expectant mothers who love to flaunt their baby bumps with drapes.
Draped Jerseys are wrinkle free and provide extra stretch making it a perfect comfort wear. This also calls for extra attention to wearing proper supporting garments to compliment the look created by this dress.
