Bright Contrast Blouse
Thinking of an instant way to uplift your outfit and make it pop? Wear a blouse in a contrasting color! This technique works both ways- if you are wearing a dull-colored saree, add a bright-colored blouse to instantly uplift it. Or vice versa to mellow down a very bright saree.

Half - Cape Blouse
We have seen brides and their bridesmaids experiment with capes in their outfits. You can take it a notch higher by pairing your saree with a half cape blouse. Its quirky, it's trendy, and it's super unique.
Corset blouses are usually longer in length than regular blouses, and hardly worn by a lot of people- which means, if you pair one with your saree, you are definitely going to stand out from the crowd! Experiment with your blouse by playing with colors, patterns, and designs like embroidery, gota work, or even sequins.
