Sheer Black Blouse

If you want your look to be unique and sexy but do not want to reveal too much skin then the sheer blouse is a great option. Sheer blouses can be made with any translucent fabric like chiffon, net, organza and even lace. Any fabric that is semi transparent to transparent will do. Sheer blouses have lining fabric or non-transparent fabric covering the bosom down. The transparent part only shows the skin from the upper torso to the shoulders. On the back you can make it sheer as deep as you want.

Long Sleeve Ideas For Black Blouse

Long gone are the days of the boring plain sleeves. Now you can take liberty of all these creative ways to wear three quarter and full sleeves from the images below. A rule of thumb to go by is that revealing necklines look better with longer sleeves and collars and high necks look better with shorter sleeves or sleeveless blouses. This creates a balance in the look. Balloon sleeves or peasant sleeves also look fantastic with a sheer fabric (see image below on the right).

Velvet Saree Blouses

I remember in my teen years, the readymade velvet blouses made an entry. Since then it has evolved so much. Now the design options are endless with this lush luxurious fabric called velvet. Black is itself such a gorgeous colour but in velvet it becomes deeper and richer. If you want the blackest black then you must go with a velvet blouse. However, it is best to wear this fabric in the winter as it tends to be thicker.
