33 Blouses You Will Want to Wear Again and Again

Digital Editor Nandini Bhalla Curates Her Favourite Blouses—from simple to extravagant, and for weddings, mehendi, and cocktails. "These blouses are not just beautiful, they are also versatile multi-taskers," Nandini says. "Whether you are the brid

"In my opinion, the perfect blouse shouldn't just be beautiful in colour, structure, or masterful embellishments. It should also have a certain multi-tasking quality to it.  As we navigate a tumultuous world, where 'responsible consumerism' is the critical need of the hour, the idea of a garment that can be worn in different ways is very attractive, but it is also necessary. Take for example an intricately embellished blouse that takes on a different personality when paired with an evening sari for cocktails, or a white, cotton lehenga for a beach mehendi. In my own wardrobe, there sit several solid-coloured, Indianwear pieces—a silver-grey Shantanu and Nikhil sari, a minimalist, black lehenga, and an electric-red 431-88 half-sari are just some of them. Over the years, these versatile pieces have become the perfect canvas to build several looks on—a printed, chiffon blouse adds a touch of summer romance, while an embroidered choli elevates the outfit to formalwear.  I am no stranger to wearing Indian blouses as westernwear, either—you'd be pleasantly surprised to see that many of this-season's blouses look effortlessly stylish when teamed with a pair of high-waist trousers or a swishy skirt.  The secret lies in a blouse's ability to adapt. My own MO is to imagine a blouse—or any separate, for that matter—with other items that already exist in my closet. If I can imagine creating at least three different outfit options, that piece, for me, becomes a winner.    Here is a curation of 20 exquisite blouses—from minimalist to maximalist—worth your consideration. Whether you're the bride or the guest, I hope you will find one that you not only love, but will love forever..."
