Who says designer saree blouses are to be worn only be film stars and fashion models? You too can wear them and transform your look entirely. Though this concept of designing blouses is a little recent in India, it seems to have caught on in a big way. Blouse designs are so many, today, that if you’re looking for a style for yourself, you’re going to be spoilt for choice.
Designer blouses are made in silk, chiffon, organza, silk-cotton, georgette, lace, velvet, lace and cotton and sometimes can include precious metals and stones of one’s choice. They also have a lot of work such as zardosi, kundan, lace, thread work and mirror work on the back of the blouse and the sleeves. However, on high-necked or Mandarin collared blouses, you could find some work on the front part of the blouse too.
You can team up a designer blouse with either a saree or with a lehenga and wear it to a wedding, event or high society party.
DESIGNER BLOUSES FOR YOUR WEDDING DAY
Naturally, as a bride you want everything to be perfect on your wedding day – right from your clothes, makeup, jewelry, accessories and everything around you. One important aspect is your wedding ensemble that needs to be perfect and starts with your wedding blouse.
Though you may choose your wedding saree with great care, you should also ensure that your wedding blouse is stitched well and that it accentuates your figure and your features well. If it fits you well, it will complement your individual beauty, but an ill-fitting blouse can ruin your look entirely.
