Who said that only a choli needs to be grand? You can make your vanilla saree look stellar with this blouse that has beaded strings.

In this case, you can see that the heavy blouse and the plain satin saree with feathered borders complement each other so well.

4. The Ruffled Sleeve Blouse

5. The Off-Shoulder Blouse

Before you go ahead and wear this blouse, make sure that you’re comfortable with it. Go off-shoulder with your blouse design at a cocktail party or at a wedding.
