Have you ever had an important party to go to, have the perfect saree for it in your closet, but find that the original blouse doesn’t fit you anymore?
In women’s fashion, the sari is still evergreen, but the saree blouse has changed and become the focus of attention. Don’t be afraid to experiment with your blouse to give your saree a modern look. The only thing that matters in choosing your saree blouse is the occasion in question, so this Spring/ Summer, try T-shirting your saree or going for a crop top.
When it’s the last minute, and there’s no time at all before the event, you may try to wear your saree with a non-traditional blouse. Sometimes this works out well, even more elegant than normal blouses. All you need is enough flair to carry it off; go to a blingy party wearing a sparkling saree with a simple stretchy blouse, or even a black tank top!
Designer T-Shirt Blouses
The next time you get designer sarees online, think how it would look paired with a designer blouse that resembles a T-shirt. Sabyasachi’s colourful wide stripes made a comeback in 2015 on runways, as a crop top teamed with floral lehengas and skirts.
In recent years, Lakme Fashion Week has seen funky trends in Indian attire. LFW 2013 saw Sabyasachi Mukherjee, also known as “The Saree God”, turn this wide striped T-shirt blouse into the hottest trend for sarees in 2013. Masaba Gupta was recently displayed her modern printed sarees with simple cropped tops too.
The best thing about the T-Shirt or shirt blouse is that they don’t demand all the drama of matching colours exactly or getting a custom fit. Pulling off a shirt or a t-shirt isn’t as easy as celebs make it look on the runway, so it is safer to try the look out once beforehand. Just don’t be scared of this unconventional style, but we suggest you try it out at a friend’s party first.
The retro revivals like this one made by the leading Indian designers are always welcomed by one and all. Bollywood divas like Kajol and Kangana love to wear Sabyasachi sarees and we fell in love with the striped style instantly. When the wide striped T-shirt blouse is paired with embroidered silk sarees, as worn by Kangana, it looks super cool and retro, with a sense of going back to the sixties.
Bling It On!
Remember that you need to dress up your unconventional look with the right accessories. Swarovski crystal fashion jewelry will work well, especially if the blouse is plain and the saree has some rhinestones on it already. Don’t walk out in a T-shirt and sari without opulent earrings, like large jhumkas and bold rings, or, at least, a statement necklace.
Look impressive in embroidered designer blouse from Simaaya Fashions, and team it up with fabulous fancy sarees. Carefully crafted art silk, lycra and velvet ready-made blouses are not only durable, but they are also easily maintained. Embellished blouses can give a woman all the allure she needs, but when they are plain, combine it with statement jewelry and a vibrant georgette, chiffon or crepe saree. We suggest you try out one of our readymade, embellished blouses and wear them with fancy sarees in your wardrobe to glam up for a party.
