Latest Blouse Designs 2020 To Wear With Sarees And Lehengas
Those sarees you treasure and lehengas you love don't have to go anywhere even when you want to give them a fashionable update. Switching them with a new blouse is a simple way to breathe new life into the outfit. Take a look at these latest blouse designs to pick from.
1. Bikini Style Blouse
Want to add a daring element to your saree or lehenga? Then go for a bikini style blouse with thin straps that provides coverage only over the chest. Think Sushmita Sen in Main Hoon Na, who set hearts aflutter in her sparkling gold saree. If you dare to bare with your blouse game, there's no pick better than this one.
2. Off-Shoulder Blouse
A fusion between traditional and Western wear, the off-shoulder blouse is new-found favourite. With sleeves delicately slung off the shoulder, it lends modern charm to the outfit, adds coverage to the upper arm area and can make the necklace worn with the outfit more prominent as well.
3. Long Sleeve Blouse
Those who are conscious of their stomach and arms or ones who want a completely modest look can choose a long sleeve blouse. It will offer complete coverage over the arms and shoulders and in a slightly longer length, will do the same for the stomach as well.
4. Embellished Blouse
Want your traditional look to join the bling brigade? Then an embellished blouse will be right up your alley. Whether with rhinestone crystals, sequins or mirror work, bring out your glitzy side with one of these. It's also a chic style that doesn't go over the top to add shimmer to an outfit and contrast to the rest of the look.
5. Monochrome Blouse
While most aim to complement their saree or lehenga with a similar patterned blouse or one in a contrasting colour, why not do the exact opposite? Pairing your outfit with a blouse in the same shade creates a monochrome effect that's extremely trendy while also being an elegant choice for all age groups.
6. Cutout Blouse
If only a peek of skin show fits in your fashion agenda, then a cutout blouse will be your top choice. Cutouts are a daring accent that can feature almost anywhere on the blouse; from over the back to across the shoulders. They feature only a glimpse of the torso without exposing too much skin.
