You have been furiously pinning saree blouse inspirations to your vision boards forever and your colossal excitement to start turning those imaginary musings into reality is no secret. Armed with your arsenal of oomphilicious design ideas, you set out to find the perfect match for that luscious saree when something hits you like a brick!
Unfortunately it isn’t just a dream. Things are starting to spiral out of control and you can see months of hard work spent planning just slipping away into oblivion. You didn’t realize while letting your visions soar unobstructed that other people might have a say in your wedding wardrobe too. The tiny yet highly annoying detail didn’t even occur to you and why would it? Surely, no one wants to think of boring old elders telling you what not to wear as you happily slip away into outfit fantasyland, where you’re nothing short of a Bollywood star. Even more surely, you simply cannot and will not let a little thing like other people’s sense of propriety of dressing, affect your grand plans.
So what’s to be done? You could always take the rebellious route and turn up in an eyebrow raising number that’s definitely going to get more than a few tongues wagging. Or you could do the subservient thing and buckle under pressure. Forget about all those gorgeous pinned blouse ideas and pick something blah that will blend in with the rest of the insipid crowd. The blossoming yet unjustly curtailed stylista in you might be tempted to do your own thing and not bother about silly societal expectations. Who cares if Pammi aunty might have a heart attack if she sees you in your planned low cut strappy back number? The old crow wouldn’t live that long anyway.
Before you start to get seriously devious, calm down and remember that a true fashionista remains stylish under any circumstance. Plus, while you might not feel even slightly uncomfortable wearing slinky and daring cuts chances are your parents will be left red in the face with embarrassment thanks to your actions. Not to get totally mom-emo-guilt-trip on you, but you know you’re way more sensible and far more resourceful than that so read on to find out how to make heads turn even in conservative blouses.
Headed somewhere cold? Try these celebrity approved jacket blouses, which make so much more sense for the weather.

You can drape the saree in a million different ways to make the look pop while still being toasty and most importantly chic. As everyone else hides under hideously mismatched layers you’ll be comfortably strutting around with pride.
