Trendy sari blouse designs a stylish bride would love

A sari blouse is a key element to defining individual sari style and it can truly make or break an ensemble. Modern Indian brides are embracing trends in sari blouses as they wish to make an original sartorial statement at their wedding. Saris are also trending with brides for pre-wedding functions like the sangeet and mehendi ceremony. The sari blouse is the glue that holds the entire look together and is no longer an incidental part of a sari ensemble. The same sari can have different avatars, simply by changing the blouse’s design. The sari blouse is emerging as a real trend setter garment in traditional ethnic wear and here are some of our favourite trendy versions…

1. Embellished racer-back blouse

The racer-back silhouette is mostly seen in sportswear but has been interpreted well in this sari blouse. The detailing on the back of the blouse also includes floral embroidery that follows the lines of this silhouette. This brings an added element of eye-catching interest to this blouse. The subtle reveal of the shoulder blades add a feminine touch to this unique and modern blouse

2. Boat neck blouse, with pleated ruffles on the neckline and hemline

This structured sari blouse has an eye-catching detail of short and structured, pleated ruffles. These are used as embellishment along the neckline, sleeve and blouse hemline. Although striking, the ruffles do not overpower the visual appeal of this silhouette. In addition, the gold silk of the blouse is decorated with tone-on-tone muted embroidery, adding an element of subtle luxury.

3. Solid coloured blouse, with highly embroidered sleeves and cut-work detailing

This sari blouse concentrates on drawing the attention to its sleeves. A solid coloured bodice in red silk is juxtaposed, with highly embroidered sleeves. The embroidery is in shimmering gold tones and is given a three-dimensional effect with cutwork. This means that the fabric between the embroidery motifs has been removed to create a golden mesh like effect. This is a clever use of embroidery to create an uber-luxe look that isn’t over the top.

4. Embroidered boat-neck blouse with graphic cut-away neckline detail

A highly graphic neckline design makes this sari blouse truly stand out. A regular boat neck has been elevated to high fashion with an added cut-away detail. This graphic blouse is teamed with an ultra-feminine lavender sari, embellished with delicate floral embroidery. The same embroidery is mirrored on the blouse, highlighting the neckline and the sleeve’s flared chiffon hemline. The embroidered chiffon fabric on the end of the sleeve flares over the elbow, creating a wispy girlish feel. The contrast of the modern lines of the blouse’s silhouette and paisley floral motifs is what gives this sari blouse its unique appeal.

5. Off-shoulder blouse with gathered detailing and long puffed sleeves

Made with georgette silk, the design exploits the fabrics fall and lightness in the gathered detailing. It showcases the shoulders and draws attention to the neck. The sleeves are a natural extension of the body of the blouse, creating a seamless textured effect. This sari blouse has a youthful look and is a break-away from conventional blouse silhouettes.
