Ways To Style Your Rani’s Circle

Sleeveless Jacket in Long Version

Our label is situated in the centre back of the shoulders. Put your Rani’s Circle on like a sleeveless jacket with the label facing up the correct way. Adjust and centre your Circle for comfort and fit. You will then have a collar that can be folded, rolled or draped around the neck and drape down the front. The bodice will be in the longer or dress length.

Wrap Sleeveless Tunic

Our label is situated in the centre back of the shoulders. Put your Rani’s Circle on like a sleeveless jacket with the label facing up the correct way. Adjust and centre your Circle for comfort and fit, roll or fold the collar and take one side across and pin or magnet to underclothes in waist or high waist area.  The top layer can be crossed over in opposite direction and pin or magnet to the other side of the garment.  The bodice will be in the longer length at the back and the front will drape upwards.

Roll Neck Tunic in Long Version

Worn in the long version, roll the collar and secure to each side of the shoulders with brooches or clips. Highlight the fabric with edging, let it waterfall down the side with a beautiful brooch.

Soft Neck Cowl in Long Version

Put your Rani’s Circle on like a sleeveless jacket with the label facing up the correct way. Adjust and centre your Circle for comfort and fit.  Softly drape the collar and secure to each side of the shoulders with brooches or clips. Highlight the fabric with edging, let it waterfall down the side with a beautiful brooch.

This style can be made asymmetrical by only securing on one side and letting other waterfall down in lovely folds.

Float Coat in Long Version

Unfold the collar and float over the shoulders. Pull the collar forward on the shoulders for a more secure fit.  Lighter fabrics will float and flutter and may require securing by brooching, tying, belting etc. Heavier fabrics will fall and drape more securely on their own. Simply adjust to suit your needs.

Tie-Front Wrap in Long Version

In the long version (with the label ‘Rani’s Circle’ up the right way), centre your Circle and throw the collar over your shoulders.  You will have a mid-length sleeve. Bring the wrap around to the front and hold the edge of the collar wrap about 30cm from your chest and tie and tighten. You should be able to lift your arms up and down and your wrap should ride up and down easily. Very quick and super beautiful. The lighter the fabric the smaller the knot at the front.

Brooch Front Wrap on Long Version

As ‘Tie-Front Wrap in Long Version’, but secure the collar or cape with a brooch at the décolletage.  It will sit differently from the photo above that is tied. It will fall more fully over the front and give a mid-length loose sleeve. Plenty of movement and float.

The Cross-Over in Long Version

Put your ‘Rani’s Circle on in the long version and throw the collar over the shoulders. With your hand under the collar, travel it across to the opposite shoulder. Either tuck or secure to your bra or whatever you may be wearing under your wrap.  Take the other side, with your hand under the collar, travel it across to the opposite side again. This gives it a nice straight line. Secure with a brooch or clip to the Rani’s Circle itself. Light fabrics that have slip can be secured to your bra or camisole. Very Elegant.

Exotic Sarong Style in Long Version

Put your Rani’s Circle on like a sleeveless jacket and throw the collar over your shoulders. Take it off the left shoulder and fold the collar over the left armhole. Take it then under your left arm and across your chest towards your right arm. Secure or brooch this section to the section that is still draped over the arm. Make sure it is centred, folded and sitting correctly. It will cross over the back and drape beautifully with a lovely waterfall of fabric down the right side. Very flattering.

The Simple Sarong

 In the long version, fold the collar over the two armholes neatly and wrap around under the arms. Secure and the front or side with a brooch or clip.  A two layered sarong with a lovely waterfall of fabric at the front. Opaque rather than sheer fabrics suite this style as the outline of the armholes could show through with sheers.

Layered Skirt

Fold your Rani’s Circle (not exactly in half) but along the arm holes. Give the armholes a little pull to give them an elongated horizontal look and twist them in for a good length once inward and wrap around your waist. Secure with a brooch or clip. You have a layered skirt that can be used in any fabric. Just gorgeous.

The Belted Tunic in Long Version

As a sleeveless jacket with collar draped into either a soft or rolled cowl neckline and belted at the waist.  Can also be belted under the bust or on the hips for different looks.

Swing Jacket Short Version

To turn your ‘Rani’s Circle into a short version you need to turn your garment upside down. The label ‘Rani’s Circle’ will now read upside down and the previous collar becomes the bodice and vice versa. You will have a shorter bodice and a longer collar. Fold or roll the collar for a neat swing jacket vest look.

Swing Top

The same as the swing jacket but secured at the front for a lovely little top.  The collar can also be cowled or draped across for a variety of looks.

Tie Front Top

Wear in the short version with the collar rolled down, gather each side of the bodice and tie under the bust.

Short Version Full Wrap Cross Over

Worn in the short version the bodice is shorter and the collar is longer and will float over the shoulders as a longer wrap to cover the arms. Throw the collar over the shoulders. With your hand under the collar, travel it across the front to the opposite shoulder. Either tuck or secure to your bra or whatever you may be wearing under your wrap.  Take the other side, with your hand under the collar, travel it across to the opposite side again. This gives it a nice straight line. Secure with a brooch or clip to the Rani’s Circle itself. Light fabrics that have slip can be secured to your bra or camisole.

Reverse V-Back

Before putting on your wrap, fold the collar in an outwards motion with the inside of the garment facing you, to just above the armholes. Put on with the opening at the back. You may need assistance with securing at the back so it falls perfectly.

Reverse Tie Back

Softly roll or drape the collar with the inside of the garment facing you, before putting on for best results. Tie at the top back and let fall beautifully.

Backless Roller Party Style

Softy roll the collar a couple of times in an outwards motion with the inside of the garment facing you. Then one at a time twist each side of the collar around through each of the armholes. Put on and secure with a brooch or tie at the back at the nape of the neck.

Reversa Wrap

Just put your Rani’s Circle on backwards in the long version with the collar draped down over the front and secure at the back at the nape of the neck.  Secure to under garments if slippery fabric.

Sarong Cross Over

In the long version, fold the collar over the armholes. Not suitable for very sheer fabrics. Wrap around the back and bring to the front and cross over just above the bust and tie or secure at the back of the neck.

The Sloncho Poncho

Put your head through the armhole. For the best look, it will slouch to right side and there will also be a shorter side at the front and a slightly longer side at the back.  Put your right arm through the armhole that is in the slouch. In the smaller sizes this may not work if armholes are too small but mostly it works from size M upwards.

Drape Poncho

Same as the Sloncho Poncho (head in through armhole and right arm out through spare armhole) but cross the slouching fabric up either to the same shoulder where is falls from or across to the opposite shoulder for a beautiful and unusual look.

The hoodie or hijab

Simply put on like a sleeveless jacket. Hood collar up over head.  Secure the front in your favourite style. When you throw it off and let it drape down your back it gives a lovely look also.

Spiral Scarf

Fold your Rani’s Circle nearly in half horizontally at the armholes. From the armholes begin to roll the wrap till the end. Due to the circular shop of the design you create a beautiful spiral design in the scarf. It can be used as a sash also. This is just gorgeous and handy.
