While we all have a clear idea if we want to wrap a saree for the pre-wedding soiree or slip into a layered sharara, what we often ignore is the choice of right blouse that can add the right kind of grace and oomph to your look. Full sleeves or sleeveless, velvet or cotton, frilled or embroidered - a blouse can transform your look from elegant to playful and vice versa.
Here are a few of my most favourite blouse designs to suit various occasions and body types and give that extra edge to your look.
Sleeveless Jacket Style Blouse
Dreaming of stars and sequins? The unique golden jacket intricately embroidered with sequins can glorify your style on point. This sleeveless jacket style blouse has scalloped zardosi embroidery which is a like a dream come true for a diva in you. Adorned with tiny tassels and a finely placed cutdana, this masterpiece is will turn heads wherever you go. Complete the look with a saree skirt and a hand accessory or headgear and you won't look less than a goddess.
Contemporary Long Sleeves Blouse
A classic stripe on stripe design gets a traditional touch with hand-embroidered zari work in the half jacket style. I recommend this blouse for all the women who seek comfort but do not mind jazzing up their outfits a little bit. A bit of zari work on the sleeves gives this blouse a classy finish. Pair this extremely beautiful blouse with a striped wide-legged sharara and let the fusion do the magic.
Corset Style Blouse
Inspired from the Victorian era, the Corset style blouse is all things classy and fabulous. This powder blue corset blouse delicately embroidered with a mix of mirror & handwork is a perfect addition to your wardrobe. Pair it up with a sharara set and ruffle organza dupatta for a perfect balance between power dressing and dreamy vibes.
Who doesn't likes a little shine to their day? Here's another hand-embroidered corset blouse along with frill sleeves to add the right amount of theatre to your outfit. Slip into a comfortable dhoti style trouser and stellar neckpiece and get ready to bring out the fun side of your personality.
Single Strap Blouses
If you are one of those who want to flaunt a toned arm or a collar bone, then single strap sweetheart blouses are super sexy and stylish. Here's a melange of neon thread and pink sequins embroidered single strapped blouse which is super delicate and mesmerizing. Pair it up with a net or chiffon saree and get set to exude whimsical beauty.
