South Indian brides run hither and thither, and sometimes spend hours online checking for chic and trendy blouses to pair with their Kanjeevaram sarees. As it is you have enough on your head, and planning for a south Indian wedding isn’t an easy deal. Tam-bram brides would know best what we speak off, and especially when mommies and aunties pitch in their two cents on being traditional, but you want a fashionable touch too. Here are six adorable blouse designs to wear with your Kanjeevaram sarees, which wouldn’t raise the hullabaloo and eyebrows around, and yet make you the princess on D-Day!
Kanjeevaram sarees are one attire of Indian clothing, which we cannot get tired stocking up on and flaunting them at the first given chance, can we? However, instead of wearing the mom-approved boring old cholis with the Kanjeevaram saree, you could go artsy and chic. Artistic sleeves in raw silk and cotton silk fabrics and with plenty of embroidery done on them makes a good combination to wear at your wedding. Glam up the wedding blouses with heavily embroidered zari and chikankari work on the sleeves.
Puff sleeves brings about an elegant vintage look. Puff the blouse sleeves up this time with traditional kanjeevarams and add accessories on the arm – vankis and armbands for example to accentuate the look. Monochromatic hues in such blouses balance the look with heavily embellished kanjeevaram sarees in complimenting colors.
3. Go Edgy With Cap-Sleeve Look
Cap sleeves are small sleeves on blouses and quite an artsy way to garner attention too. Pairing the cap sleeved blouse with your gorgeous kanjeevaram sarees, especially the less embellished or worked ones would make heads turn at your wedding. Don’t wear blouses with too much work and embroidery on it, with your temple wedding jewelry because the look would be too jarring and an eyesore, which you wouldn’t want.
4. Charismatic Look of Jacket-Style Blouses
Jacket style blouses on the lines of mini crop tops are haute trends to pair with the traditional kanjeevaram- something old and something new, perfect for the wedding. Short jacketed blouses in ethnic embroidery with plain kanjeevaram silk sarees would be best to pair up, and if the blouse is made from fabrics such as silk or velvet, in silver or gold- a grand look comes through which compliments the color on the saree.
5. Charming Contrast Coloured Mirror Work Blouses
For the daring south Indian bride, and if you love to play with high color contrasts, a blouse with colors that do not necessarily compliment the hue and shade of the kanjeevaram saree is a must-wear to pair with. What you could do is to pick a cotton-silk blouse in a shade that contrasts the hue of the saree, and it should be bold- helps gel well with the bridal jewelry worn at the wedding. Have the blouse embossed with mirror work that matches up with the detailing on the kanjeevaram.
6. Go Bold, Go Transparent
Best for the summer weddings, lace and net transparent cholis are apt to wear and pair with your kanjeevaram sarees. Plain black to royal blue cholis with or without embroidery on the border and the blouse sleeves- you get to make the choice here, and it would be great. Excellent combination for sure, just ensure to balance the look- heavily worked blouses with less detailed sarees make an ideal aura to flaunt on D-Day! Go high neck, boat neck or low V neck; your kanjeevaram would have oomph added to it.
Excited about the look you want? Take your time, get the trials done and then make a choice. We wish you all the luck and happiness!
