Festive season is just around the corner. This is the time when we all want to dress up to the T and make a statement as we step out of our homes for different events, right from Diwali celebrations to wedding parties.
If you have a calling for sarees, you know the look is incomplete without the right blouse. While some prefer experimenting with trendy designs, many others want to stick to simple yet statement making designs. If you fall in the latter category, this article is for you.
Honestly, I love the way Alia Bhatt carries her sarees. Her blouses are classic but chic at the same time. So, here, I am sharing my 5 favourite classy blouses donned by Alia Bhatt in the past which can be your inspiration this festive season.
Square Neck With Strap Sleeves
If you aren't a fan of heavy, embellished blouses, a classic square neck blouse like this one can be a good pick to go with your saree. Though Alia Bhatt wore it with a black skirt and dupatta, you can carry a similar blouse with your georgette or chiffon saree. Instead of strappy sleeves, you can also go with cap or elbow length sleeves depending on your preference.
Keyhole Back Blouse
Alia Bhatt's bright pink banarasi saree was teamed with a light pink coloured banarasi blouse that had a keyhole back. Keyhole style on the back and a zero neck front blouse is quit trending these days. These work best with heavy sarees like a kanjeevaram, raw silk or heavy embellished sarees where you don't want the attention to go entirely to the blouse. The keyhole back designs adds to your style without taking away all the attention from your saree.
Pearl Strap Blouse
This one can be a good pick for occasions like a day event - mehendi, sangeet or even a day puja at home. Alia Bhatt's lehenga skirt was teamed with a pearl strap blouse. If your saree is low key and you want to amp up a little, get a blouse like this one. Pearl laces are easily available. You can get it stiched over your blouse strap. It will instantly make your blouse look trendy.
Strapless Tube Style Blouse
Another classic blouse style is this one, strapless, tube style top. If you think you can carry it well, pair it with your ruffle, silk sarees this season. This can be a good choice for a Diwali party night or a wedding event. Alia Bhatt wore this strapless blouse with her printed and ruffle saree from the house of Sabyasachi Mukherjee.
Plunging V Neckline Blouse
If experimenting is not your thing, stick to the classic, V neckline blouse. Alia Bhatt's chikankari yellow blouse had a plunging V neckline and elbow sleeves. You can opt for the sleeves as per your preference. These days, elbow sleeves are quite trending and most Bollywood divas are opting for this sleeve length. This blouse style would work best with georgette, raw silk and cotton sarees.
To get the best fit and fabric for your blouse, speak to your tailor. Let them know the fabric of your saree and they would be best at suggesting the fabric you should pick. Also, pick a style that you feel comfortable in rather than going for styles that make you uncomfortable. Remember that you won't be able to really make a statement in your clothing until you feel confident enough in the clothes you are wearing. Keeping a note of the trendy designs, you can also get them customised as per your preference.
