If we come to see, blouses have not been given their due recognition in the past. Always considered as an afterthought, after we have carefully considered our sari or lehenga—they were often ignored. But, with zoom weddings being the norm, dressing up your upper half has become imperative.
While it took a pandemic for the mighty piece to rise up the charts, it is safe to say we can no longer look back. Here are five different blouse styles you can keep in mind to bring in your last minute ethnic staples together.
Thanks to Bridgerton, corsets have made a comeback but who knew they could look *this* good with your sari? It might seem intimidating at first to pull something off as a style such as this but trust us, a corset-like blouse could easily be switched up for the reception later at night!
If you don't know where to begin from then the best way to make a choice is to focus on the type of neckline you want. Rectangular, square and boat neck are pretty common, opt for something which adds that extra oomph! Case in point: Kiara Advani's pastel blouse with flower appliques and a deep neckline.
If you have a slightly toned-down aesthetic then metallics with a soft sheen will be your saviour. Pair them with a sari that belongs to the same colour family or opt for two contrasting tones to keep it bold.
This is an option that works best for both minimalists and maximalists, alike. Whether you want to stick to your noodle straps or a simple one shoulder or even straps with tassels or even better cowrie shells like Janhvi's— there's something for everyone here.
Make for a scintillating yet modest statement with a backless blouse. These have stood the test of time and are great if you want to flaunt your well-sculpted back. Pro tip: Don't forget to tie your hair in a messy bun and add liquid highlighter to your back to make the look pop!
