    Trust Sabyasachi to pave the way for blouses this season. His last collection, Fiza not only has legendary lehengas but also stunning blouses that match up to the entire outfit in every way. Not just Sabyasachi, Anita Dongre too tailored low-cut blouses with short sleeves to give the modern bride of 2019 her perfect bridal look.

    Let’s be clear, it’s no longer a demure bride we are looking at. Think plunging necklines, prominent embroideries, and innovative embellishments. We picked out 10 blouses that are this year’s biggest trends – and they can give the lehenga a run for its money because it’s always the little details that count.

    Arpita Mehta sure knows how to keep it summery and fresh with her folk-lore inspired blouse designs that are making their presence beautifully felt on the internet. The versatility and the innate Indian-ness that comes with this look makes it an excellent choice for a Mehendi.

    The good thing about this year’s sheer trend is how delicate and gorgeous it makes one look. Blouses come with sheer nets and georgette tassels and for us, that’s a great way to add a hint of texture to any outfit. This low-cut blouse is a great example of how one can stay trendy yet stylish without showing too much skin.

    Big sleeves

    Kareena Kapoor Khan sporting big billowing sleeves in a Manish Malhotra mirror-work lehenga was reason enough to achieve the popularity of mammoth proportions. In all honesty, the bigger the sleeves, the better the style and we’re glad it has seeped into bridal wear too.

    Corset blouses

    This is a popular one and shows no signs of slowing down as corsets have now begun to emerge from bridal collections. The cut is specific to brides with fitness-obsessed bodies but if worn well with the right amount of chutzpah, it will be popular with brides who prefer global silhouettes. Shane & Falguni Peacock know how to work it with faux fur, tassels, and even Swarovskis.

    Beaded editions

    These extensive beaded and crystal-encrusted blouses are not easy to create but Kresha Bajaj knows just how much a bride likes being exclusive. With sequin shading, coloured beading work and beautiful crystal work, this off-shoulder blouse is a winner.

    Strappy tubes

    They are such a fun trend and can be swapped with dhoti pants for an after-party look. Tube or strappy blouses at Abhinav Mishra are simply effortless, especially this one that comes with sheer ruffles.

    Sweetheart necklines

    It’s an easy trend to incorporate especially if one is not a short-sleeve or a sleeveless blouse lover. Sheer sleeves add depth, attitude, and style to any traditional lehenga.

    Sheer ruffles

    This trend will make sure you are a global bride. Even though it’s mostly a Victorian trend, ruffles add a certain je ne sais quoi to the bridal look if you do it well like Ridhi Mehra.
