The blouse is an indispensable ethnic component for Indian lehengas and saris which have undergone numerous transformations over the years. The bodice was worn as an essential part of the ensemble either with a dupatta or the sari pallu. Now, the modern woman has stepped out of her comfort zone and has started experimenting with blouse designs. More than the blouse is a simple and functional element, the blouse has now been turned into the deciding factor of the overall look, and the impact of the blouse is absolutely indisputable!

With mellowed down boldness, cutouts in wedding blouses have become a popular detail for the festive season this year.

If you feel that the diversion from the conservative choice of designs is not for you, you can opt for this style.
2. Super low plunging necklines
The plunging necklines in blouses are not new, but it has been refreshed and given a new avatar with an impeccable bead-work or stitched with beautifully embroidered fabric. It has been especially popular amongst the new age brides as it accentuates the curve and shows off their bridal jewellery that much more.

3. Off-shoulder designs
An off-shoulder blouse is sure to elevate the youthfulness of the women adorning it.
