50 Latest Pattu & Silk Saree Blouse Designs Catalog (2023)
1. Back Neck Blouse Design For A Pattu Saree
Let’s begin with my favorite part of the blouse and, admittedly, it is for a lot of women. The back neck design for this pattu saree blouse uses a sheer shimmer material to enhance the heavy embroidery. Talk about modern touches and creativity!
2. Blouse Back Neck With Bow For Silk Saree
The deeper the blouse, the better it is according to me. If loud and gaudy is not your thing, silk sarees are a great option for any occasion. They are gorgeous and elegant at the same time. And you can play the contemporary card with a back neck blouse pattern for a silk saree with this design. A large tie-able bow is to die for!
3. Patch Work Blouse Designs For Cotton/Silk/Chiffon Sarees
Patchwork seemed so off when it first hit the clothing line. But just like any fad, this trend took a while to take off. I cannot think of a cooler way of adding punk to this ethnic ensemble. An eclectic blouse design that best suits cotton and silk sarees alike.
4. Kerala Saree Blouse Designs
The design and color choices for styling the off-white Kerala saree are limitless. Earlier, matching this off-white was a thing, but now it’s old school and out of fashion. It is all about contrast, so pick any color of your choice that will stand out or that matches your skin tone and go with a full sleeves blouse like this with a deep neck. Add accessories to add that zing. You don’t even have to bother getting this blouse heavily embellished or embroidered.
5. Contrast Designer Blouses For Silk Saree
Raid your mother’s closet to steal an old silk saree and pair it up with a raw silk blouse with a back design that is embroidered proportionately. To keep up with the old charm, go with a high neck and 3/4th sleeves just like old times. You could go with a deep pot neck for the contemporary touch.
6. Net Blouse Designs For Party Wear/Silk Sarees
Another design we can never get enough of and looks refreshing every single time. A blouse design that goes with absolutely any saree and the color you choose can either be a contrast or complement the saree. With a sweetheart neckline, high bateau design covered with sheer tulle material and mirror work to pop the look further, this is something you should try, if you have not already!
7. Kanjeevaram Saree With Embroidered Blouse Design
Kanjeevaram sarees are synonymous with weddings. The rich look they emit is matchless and incomparable to any other fabric. This is particularly the case with South Indian brides. If you don’t like the blouse that comes with the saree, go with a blouse of the same color as the saree and embroidery that is neither too heavy or too little.
8. Blouse Designs With Border
If you prefer something traditional without much work, stick to the old style of a blouse with border, 3/4th hands and subtle piping for the edges or sequin lining to add just enough pop.
9. Mirror Work Blouse For Pattu Sarees
Mirror work is evergreen and will never go away, even though they have been around for a while. The only thing you will have to remember is to make sure the quality and finishing of the work are good. Otherwise, it can look pretty shoddy. The work goes with chiffon, silk or pattu sarees depending on the occasion.
10. Pot Neck Kundan Embroidered Blouse
A style you could incorporate for any pattu saree variant like Uppada, Benaras, zari, etc. A combination of kundan and sequin work for the deep pot neck at the back with a hanging tussle bunch is all the charm your ethnic saree needs. Keep the hands and front simple if the saree is already heavy, or just follow the theme for neck and hand outline. Either way, a classy yet chic looking blouse design you should try.
11. Pattu Border Work For Mysore Silk/Zari Sarees
Sarees with a thick border are back in fashion right now. Just like all the 90s trends that are coming back, this one is too. Also, this unique Mysore silk saree blouse design with borders makes for an amazing bodice.
12. Zardosi Work Design For Pattu Blouse
Chilli red banaras or kanjeevaram saree; a zardozi blouse with a contemporary neck design is a dream combination. It screams wedding like nothing else. Go with the classic half hands and a steady zardozi work throughout just like this one, and you’re quite sorted.
13. Full Sleeve Blouse Designs For Silk Sarees
A fishtail embroidery design for the sleeves and body makes this blouse unique and one of its kind. Blouses like these will elevate your saree and will be the highlight of the ensemble.
14. High Neck Blouse Design For Silk/Cotton Sarees
Minimalistic is the next big thing in fashion. It means popping the outfit with the design element rather than being OTT. If this style defines you, it should already be a part of your Pinterest board. It is a great design for silk or cotton sarees with a plain body, small border, and printed blouse. You could go up or down with the sleeve length or even go halter if you may, and it looks stunning either way.
15. South Indian Bridal Blouse Design
South Indian wedding sarees are usually a combination of red and yellow or a mix of shades that fall under either of them. The best part about these sarees is that the heavily ornate blouses only add charm and grandeur without looking loud. Even though a lot of it depends on the design and the embroidery, it will give you a million dollar look if done well. This golden, green and a pop of silver work plus the additional patch work design used as shoulder piping only adds up to everything.
16. Contrast Pattu Blouse Embroidery
What if you do not want to go the usual way but desire a twist? Yes, you totally could. Look at this combination of a typical red pattu saree with a green floral embroidery blouse for a bridal outfit. The green blouse with solid golden zardozi work complements the golden color on the saree, plus we love how the green is made to subtly pop out using the other accessories.
17. Plain Sleeveless Blouse For Jute/Silk Sarees
Cotton silk and jute sarees are all about elegance and class. Here’s a simple blouse design for silk sarees that might suit your palette. Even though it looks like a regular sleeveless blouse, the transition from the high neck to the back into a slightly deep V in the front with a princess cut needs to be dealt with expertise.
18. Banaras Blouse For Cotton Silk Sarees
I can never get enough of cotton, be it in any form and when it comes to sarees, it’s my go-to style. For daytime events, I still prefer soft linen or cotton sarees while I like cotton silk or chanderi cotton for parties or bigger functions. A classy and simple way to style these sarees is to team it up with a benaras or cotton silk blouse design with 3/4th sleeves and deep pot neck. The banaras fabric lends just enough sheen and shimmer to the outfit. Style them with big jhumkas and a hair updo and a bare neck to complete this look.
19. Half Sleeves Pattu Blouse With Sheer Design Embroidery
Give your regular half sleeves blouse a little twist with this maggam work embroidery that focuses on the sleeves and back neck. Plus, the refreshing touch of tulle fabric attached gives it a high neck illusion, but with a large motif. One of my favorite designs in this catalog.
20. Yellow Kanjeevaram Saree With Zardozi Work Blouse
Go all out with yellow in this Kanjeevaram pattu saree and combine it with a heavy zardozi work blouse. The heavy, intricate work with a touch of green and pink is a feast for the eyes.
21. Gold Zari Saree With Peacock Maggam Blouse
The minute I saw this, I knew this would go right into my ‘all-time-favorite’ list. Pairing gold with an unusual choice of pink is a brilliant way of breaking the lavish gold zari saree. The peacock motif used as the base for the thread work embroidery is splendid, and truly one of its kind.
22. Red Pattu Saree Blouse With Golden Embroidery
Style this classic banaras pattu saree in red with gold zari border with a similar embroidery design. The gold maggam embroidery stands out and complements the blouse. Go with a pot neck that connects back at the nape of your neck if you want to mellow down on the work.
23. Elephant Embroidery Design For Blouse Back Neck
Like we discussed earlier, sheer back necks are catching up, especially for pattu sarees. This modern blouse design for silk sarees makes use of motifs like elephants to add ethnic elements to your ensemble.
24. Traditional Wedding Blouse With Border
Big border blouse designs are back in vogue, and we could not have been happier. For brides who do not want to go heavy on the embroidery, just go with a traditional half sleeves blouse by using the pattu border for the sleeves. Take it a little further with high neck blouse if you may. Either way, this is a beautiful choice of color and design.
25. Red Saree With Burnt Orange Blouse
Another interesting choice of blouse design from the South Indian bridal collection. I’m not sure if you’ve heard, but burnt orange is catching up in the traditional clothing line. Plus, it goes with almost all colors that fall under the bridal radar.
26. Red Pattu Saree Blouse With Tulle Sleeves
Minimalistic yet luxurious, just how most of us prefer. Use the pattu blouse that comes with the saree for the body of the blouse with Kundan work just for the border; for the sleeves take a separate net or tulle material. A simple blouse design for a pattu saree with scattered pearls just like this one is perfect.
27. Floral Pattu Saree And Embroidered Blouse
If you want to move away from the regular pattu sarees, floral designs are catching up and make for an attractive option. You can follow the design pattern with a combination of floral, bordered and a tad bit of Kundan embroidery work.
28. Threadwork Blouse Designs For Uppada Pattu Or Jute Sarees
Uppada sarees are in vogue right now, and we are glad. These are lightweight yet grand and elegant. Plus, you can either go heavy with the embroidery for a grandeur look or try the thread work embroidery which is more on the classy side. Use this thread work design for the sleeves and go with a deep neck. You could also add multi-colored tussles of the same color to bump up the look.
29. Dull Gold Saree With Heavy Work Blouse
Think of a heavy work bridal saree and blouse; this is the epitome of it. A combination that proves that sometimes it is okay to go heavy with both the blouse and saree.
30. Contrast Blouse Design For Plain Pattu Sarees
Absolute, plain pattu sarees with a contrast and heavy work designer blouses are trending. If you have a wedding coming up and have nothing to wear, take an old saree, or any used one and combine it with a banaras or pattu blouse. You don’t even have to bother about getting embroidery done either.
31. Patch Work Blouse Design For Tussar Silk Saree
Tussar & raw silk sarees are perfect for bridesmaids. All of you can go with a plain gold tussar silk saree to complement the bride’s saree, and each of you can choose a contrast color blouse with similar embroidery for the blouse. If not the regular embroidery, try the patchwork design like this one.
32. Floral Raw Silk Blouse For Plain Chiffon/Raw Silk Sarees
By now, we already know that florals are everywhere. From lehengas to sarees, salwar, and blouses they have taken over. So instead of just a contrast blouse for the plain saree, go with this raw floral and soft silk blouse design with a boat neck. Wear nothing else but a pair of earrings to enhance the blouse.
33. Gold Kundan And Mirror Work For Green Pattu Saree
A distinct blouse design that will stand out and is not something you see every day. The gold mirror work, pot neck design, and red piping are all adding up to this stunning blouse. However, the gold strings with beads are the USP of this blouse.
34. Fancy Designer Blouse For Party Wear Sarees
By now, we already know that florals are everywhere. From lehengas to sarees, salwar, and blouses they have taken over. So instead of just a contrast blouse for the plain saree, go with this raw silk floral blouse with a boat neck. Wear a pair of earrings and nothing else to elevate the blouse.
35. Net Blouse For Pattu Saree
Keeping up with the tulle and sheer blouse madness, here’s a blouse that fits the bill for pattu sarees too. The plain contrast pattu blouse for the body and a complete nude back blouse design with maggam work is a pleasure to look at.
36. Dull Gold Zari Saree And Stone Embellished Blouse
Dull gold is coming back in full swing, and this monochrome-inspired outfit is proof enough that as long as you style it well, the outfit looks great. The rhinestone and embellished 3/4th blouse is regal and sophisticated.
37. Pot Neck And Back Open Blouse Design For Yellow Silk Saree
If you are remotely into designing your clothes, chances are you already stumbled upon this design. And, this contemporary blouse took the internet by storm. I loved how they combined a back open pattern with the pot neck blouse design to pair with a silk saree. And, also the combination of sheer fabric with self-design for the sleeves and silk for the rest of it.
38. Gold Bridal Pattu Saree With Pink Blouse
Yellow and pink is an excellent combination; it’s refreshing, vibrant and attractive. Totally fitting for a bride. The hot pink blouse with detailed zardozi work looks ravishing. The gold accessories, hair, and makeup complement the outfit proportionately.
39. Net Blouse With Quarter Sleeves
Quarter sleeves were big a few years ago before the 3/4th sleeves took over. However, if you want a middle ground between half sleeves and sleeveless, quarter sleeves are a great option. This net blouse in net and thread work embroidery, pot neck and stone embellishments is a design you can easily replicate.
40. Banaras Blouse With Kundan Work
If you are a fan of deep necks, here’s a design that is exciting. Simple, stylish and sensuous. It basically ticks off all the boxes for a great looking blouse, and this is a theme you can use with any fabric or color. If you are not comfortable with a sleeveless blouse, add net sleeves with kundan border.
41. High Neck Sleeveless Blouse For Pattu Zari Saree
High neck and sleeveless, a trending combination. Go with a color blocking technique and with a complete contrast from the saree. The sweetheart neckline connecting the high neck with sheer fabric and collar embroidery will get heads turning.
42. Peacock Motif Contrast Blouse
A breathtaking combination of royal blue and peacock green is a blouse we all must have in our collection. With stone embellished borders for the sleeves and boat neck; peacock and floral motifs for the 3/4th sleeves is all done to perfection. You can use similar designs for jute, cotton silk or chanderi fabrics; or sarees that are fairly straightforward.
43. Crop Top Inspired Blouse For Plain Sarees
Crop tops double up as saree blouses, and why shouldn’t they? Talking about crop tops, here’s a blouse that takes inspiration from the style. Add body jewelry to make it look hip. If you have a saree in a flowing fabric like this one, you could probably use that as a crop top.
44. Banaras Blouse For Half Saree
Half sarees or half and half as some may call it are coming back as one of the 90s trends for everyone. If you are also looking for a half saree blouse design, go with a contrast blouse in banaras fabric with 3/4th sleeves. Get zardozi work done for the body of the blouse and leave the borders just the way they are.
45. Boat Neck And Balloon Sleeves Blouse
A design that will perfectly go with any or all cotton fabrics—Pochampally, Bengal cotton, ikkat or baltic prints, etc. Handloom sarees have found their revival and this time around the bespoke blouses are the deal breaker. A preppy touch with the traditional saree!!
46. Pink Maggam Work Blouse For Green Pattu Saree
A blouse that can be worn with more than one saree, and that is the advantage of contrast colors. And, the kind of time and money we spend on clothes these days, we better use them for more than one outfit. Anyway, here is a design in sheer and georgette fabrics; maggam embroidery and with 3/4th sleeves that stand out for all the right reasons.

Wow – my first reaction to this blouse. An absolute stunner in every sense! If the deep neck was not enough, the colors, the patchwork and the tussles have all surpassed one another. Just get this done already!

49. Pink Blouse In Banaras And Silk
A color that is extensively a part of not just South Indian but also Maharashtrian (Paithani) saree collection. Also, a blouse design that will go with just about anything. A yellow georgette saree with pink border, a royal blue pattu saree with peacock motifs or an off-white chanderi saree. It is a perfect balance of chic and traditional blouse design.
50. High Neck Blouse For A Net Saree
The best part about high neck blouses is that you don’t have to bother about jewelry, well one less thing to worry about. Again, a blouse that will go with jute, net, chiffon or anything flowy.
The best part about these chic saree blouses is that they can be paired with skirts, jeans, patiala pants, and other types of clothing, not just sarees.
