Mirror Work Blouse:

Mirror embellished blouses have made a big come back for the wedding season and the ladies love it. Mirror work blouses can instantly transform any simple saree into something gorgeous. If you have a one coloured chiffon saree or any material which is light such as net, georgette or muslin, then opt for a blouse with mirror work and you will look great. For more on mirror blouse check out the blog post on Mirror work saree blouse designs.

Bow Knot Blouse:

To attain the feminine
look there is nothing quite like the bow backed blouse. There are many ways in
which the bow can be incorporated into the blouse. Although the most widely
used way is to use the bow to tie the blouse together at the back. However,
there are other unique ways to wear the bow on the saree blouse. To learn more
glance through my detailed blog post: Fancy Flaunting in Flirty Femininity: TheTail of the Bow Backed Saree Blouse Style.

Basic Ready Made Blouse:

We all have a few of these basic
cotton ready-made blouse with short 6 / 7 inches length sleeved blouse with a
very basic small round blouse back. These blouses come in handy when there is a
saree but there is no time to have the blouse tailor made.

Sleeveless Saree Blouse:

Like the basic blouse, a
sleeveless black blouse can be found in many of the fashion conscious and artsy
type ladies’ wardrobe. The western world has their little black dress that they
don on when all else is somehow not doing the job, well we have our little
black sleeveless blouse which can be worn with almost all types of sarees when
needed. These blouses look sexy if you want it to, they can look sophisticated
if that’s the look you want and they can give out a very artsy creative vibe if
worn with cotton saree. And it is not necessary for sleeveless blouses to be only in black as they look great in almost all colours.

Halter Neck Saree Blouse Styles:

These are a bit on the daring
side and looks best when worn with a chiffon saree or anything a bit trendy.
Halter saree blouses look best on fit women with toned arms and shoulders.Bollywood actresses like Ashwariya, Bipasha Basu and Karishma Kapoor are known to prefer the halter neck saree blouse design and they wear it very nicely due to their well toned bodies.

Full sleeve Saree blouse:

Since blouses have evolved from its basic structure varied
sizes and shapes of blouses have sprouted and one of them is the full sleeved
blouse which is here to stay. Full sleeve blouses for saris are great for
winter and also where the wearer wants to show off their sleeves. Full sleeve
blouse can be of many types:

  • a)    Fullsleeve Saree blouse for Conservative ladies: Although sarees are generally a
    bit revealing due to the fact that there is a peeking tummy here and revealed neckline
    there and a deep décolletage at the front. Still it would be wrong to think
    that saree cannot be worn by the conservative ladies. That is where the full
    sleeves come to play. Many wear the full sleeve blouse to cover their arms for
    religious or social reasons which gives them the benefit of still wearing the
    saree while maintaining their personal preference with regard to decorum.
    Paired together with a high neck blouse and longer length blouse itself (to
    cover the stomach), even the most conservative lady can feel comfortable in a
    saree while still fulfilling their desire to wear the saree.

  • b)     Full
    sleeve sari blouse to show-off the sleeve design: Now a days saree blouses have
    such gorgeous embroidery and embellishment on the sleeves that it would be a
    pity to wear shorter sleeves and not properly flaunt those designs. I can’t
    even imagine a Sabyasaachi designer blouse without those deliciously gaudy
    sleeve embroidery.

  • c)    Saree Blouse with Transparent Full Sleeves: It is
    a misconception to think that full sleeve blouse cannot be sexy. Some of my
    favourite blouse designs have full sleeves and they are sexy as anything. Still
    can’t imagine a full sleeve blouse to be saucy? Well then imagine translucent chiffon
    sleeve snugly hugging a shapely arm in pastel colours like beige, nude, taupe,
    white, ash, etc. Now imagine some feminine subtle embellishments on those
    flimsy sleeves like scattered stones or sequins.

Puffed Sleeve Blouse known as Goti sleeve:

Puffed sleeved blouses look best
with traditional sarees like katan, benarasi and cotton. This type of sleeves
look great on kids. On the upside blouses with goti sleeve look absolutely
adorable but on the down side this type of sleeve tend to make the wearer look
a bit chubby, i.e. it adds on weight visually for the fluffy sleeves. Best to
be worn by ladies is slender arms. One advice though, avoid wearing this type
of blouse with chiffons, nets and all kinds of modern and trendy saris.
