A saree is the only four to eight metres long piece of wonder that you can twist and twirl to fit any occasion, be it a festival, everyday office routine, or a glammed up night out with your party pals.
Once, a blouse was a standard assistant apparel that went with a saree. Fast forward a few decades, and you have the present where a blouse has become the platform for experimentation, signature modification, and so much more.
From patterns to prints, from colours to textures, and from basic Indian blouse designs to ultra-modern Western impressions- there is no doubt that you can go from lovely to gorgeous to classy to quirky in just one saree. How- with the help of these blouse designs.
The Puff Sleeve Blouses
Some call it the umbrella sleeve too.
Puffed sleeves look good on almost anyone- you, your mother, and your grandmother. And apart from its inter-generational qualities, it also is a perfect pair-up with silk sarees.
Blouses of this kind let out an inflated look at the shoulders.They can also be paired up with a thick border at the sleeve end, elbow-length or full-length sleeves, or in a sheer net material.
The Netted Blouse Designs
The idea of going sheer on the blouse exists because it can flare up the simplest of sarees in many different ways.
A net blouse with designs adds a modern, sensuous appeal to your demeanour. And it can work with almost any saree form- simple, traditional, or contemporary.
You can try the high-collared net blouse with full sleeves, the boat neck design, or go sleeveless. The best advantage of using a sheer material for your saree’s blouse is that you can play with the front and back neck designs and come up with many styles.
The See-Through Detailed Sleeves
While we are still discussing the net fabric, it only seems fitting to mention the see-through sleeves. The clear material allows you to experiment with different neck design ideas. It also leaves a lot of room to let you play with the sleeves.
Choosing a net material to carve a sleeve in details helps a lot in breaking the monotony of the plain fabric.
You can opt for elbow-length, three-quarters, or full sleeves. While the sequin detailing and embellishments leave an impression alongside a statement for the onlooker, they also allow you to flaunt some skin.
The Mirror Work Blouses
Don’t go to the eighties and start thinking about the loud and bright coloured ghagra with tiny mirrors sewn all over them. Sure, mirrors take you back to the old era, but they need not be that assertive in your blouse designs at present.
Right now is possibly the best time for mirrors to come into the limelight. Think about a high collared blouse with mirrors around the neck border and the sleeve edges. Or a sleeveless multicolour one with mirrors all over it.
The options today allow you to mix and match a light fabric with a heavy mirror design or vice-versa. You will also be able to wear this kind of a blouse with simple sarees, and they will fit right in.
In Case You Want Extra Quirky Blouses, Try Different Back Designs
Apart from the usual boat neck, V neck, U neck, and round neck, there are many outlines to carve the back of your blouse in, depending on what suits your body type.
Sarees can turn from a piece of clothing into the wand of Fairy Godmother if only you grasp the concept of using the blouses for sarees to your advantage.
