Latest sari blouse designs
The trend here is to add an element in the blouse that matches, but is not part of the saree itself.

Here is a transparent black saree with rose appliqué and interesting designs.
It seems that some of the roses are sewn on.
I have never been fond of appliqués, especially of the size used here. Really small ones look nice, but larger it gets, more fake it looks and detracts for the richness of the outfit.
This could be Rohit Bal’s saree, but I am not sure.

Unexpectedly beautiful combination.
I guess if I had thought about it, this combo would seem like a natural fit.
What do you think of the payal/anklet? I hesitate to call it ghungru, because they are a lot more delicate.
Just out of curiosity, how many of you actually wear payal with saree?
