One size doesn't fit all - if the blouse fits buy it!
Profile: Most women have dreamt of their wedding outfit since they were little girls. They know exactly what colour, and look they want to go for. While designers concentrate on the colour combination, fits, and drapes of the sarees and the lenghas, very few actually pay attention to the most important part of the garment- the blouse.

The truth is, that the right blouse can make or break the outfit. Recently, the fashion world has been seeing a trend in OTT blouses. These blouses can be combined with flowy shaded shiffons, or with heavy lehengas and sarees, to create an even more glamorous ensemble.

The gold/silver blouse

If you are on a budget, you should definitely consider investing in a rich looking gold or silver blouse. The advantage of buying these is that they can be combined with pretty much any garment colour- which will in-turn make the ensemble look different and heavy each time. Additionally, you can wear these with light chiffons or georgettes for casual events, or with heavy velvets and nets for champaign corking moments.

The contrasting blouse

Colour co-ordinating an ensemble is an absolute no-no in the world of fashion today. Contrast is in. Make sure that you add a touch of chutzpah to one of your old outfits, by simply changing the colour-coordinated blouse to a one that is a strikingly different colour. For example, team red blouses with blue sarees, or orange blouses with a baby pink lehenga. The more interesting the combination, the newer the outfit will look.

Cut of the Blouse

Plunging necklines with short cap sleeves are the call of the season. If you are comfortable showing skin, spaghetti straps , halters, or off-shoulder blouses are also very in. Many women make the mistake of not getting their blouses fitted to their body; apart from the fact that this does not flatter their figure, it also takes away from the show of the outfit. Make sure that the blouse is neither too tight or too loose- the ideal blouse should follow the lines of your torso.


Embellishments could be in the form of sequins, beads, embroideries, or crystals. The advantage of a heavily embellished blouse is that you can spend less money on the saree or lehenga, and the outfit will still look as heavy. Further, an embellished blouse that is worn with a light garment makes a more comfortable ensemble to move around in. If your budget doesn’t allow you to buy a very heavily decorated blouse- strike a balance with embellishments only on the sleeves of the blouse.

Whatever garment you decide on, make sure you do not ignore the blouse. Shop these looks at www.indianhanger.com
