It is a new year and with that comes a chance to update your wardrobe and try some new and unique styles. Here are a few blouse designs which, though these blouse cuts are nothing totally new, each has a little something that makes it stick out and look unique.
A narrow shoulder and a high neckline are a conservative look, but add that slit down the front and you add a little more zing to the blouse. I wouldn’t go with such a low slit though for practical reasons but a shallow slit in the front of the blouse could spice up your blouse without being too revealing.
A spaghetti strap halter has been done many time before. What’s different about this blouse though, is that the blouse itself is well-structured and not nearly as exposing as these bikini blouses all the Bollywood stars are wearing these days. The gold border along the top edge of the blouse also makes for a nice detail.
Here you have your classic cut blouse but what I like is the two-toned transparent sleeves. It is a small factor but it adds a charm to the blouse.

Brocade borders for the saree have been around for a long long time however the brocade blouse designs have seen their ups and downs.
I find it very attractive when the blouse brocade is well matched with the pallu or even border brocade work.
This pink crush brocade georgette saree with zari work on black pallu is well balanced and offers a good shape definition to the saree.

I know for sure that the saree has more of red somewhere, may be a think red border (you can see the hint of) to match the blouse color.
I hesitate in using designs like this because it has an effect on how tall you look! The eyes focus on the borders and then the mind does the calculation!
It is an interesting combo!
Normally you have spaghetti strap blouse, or sometimes referred to as noodle strap blouse, but at times the blouse strap is thinner than the spaghetti and that is what I call “angel hair pasta strap” blouse.
Come to think of it, I should call it Vermicelli strap or spaghettini strap! There is something wrong with this picture – I shouldn’t get hungry or get an urge to eat Italian food when discussing designs of a garment!
The green part of the saree in not clear here, but the saree has a lot more green in the pallu but the magenta border to bracket the saree looks kind of interesting.

This is modern classic saree.
I love saying that; saree designs offer a great opportunity to combine the old and new, traditional and contemporary, forgotten and fresh in to a new piece of six yards of life form.
Here is the backless blouse for your edification.
Modernity incorporated into classic silhouette – A jet Black chiffon saree drape with stylish Turq-White floral parallel borders running across creating flowing pattern worn with cutaway sleeveless choli creates perfect evening look.
This mouth wearingly good, the bandhani dots remind me of little bundi from a laddu (no, I haven’t had lunch yet; how did you guess?)
But seriously, I really like this saree – it combines the best of the breed from several types. First of all, the tiny buttis on the saree made using bandhini technique enhance the look of the this art silk saree and are not over powering, then scattering of little mirror work, just the hint of shimmer and then a gorgeous kundan pallu and the purple shade is exquisite. Add a few decorative stones on the border and you got a winner here.
From Home India, about $100.
