I am ancient and yet I am young
Vibrant hues of life I colour
To unfold, unravel and to be lived
I am beauty, grace and love
I am seduction, mystery and lust
I am every woman’s desire
I am 6 yards of wonder
I am – The Sari
– Shobna Roy
The sari is an entire look that includes the blouse and the petticoat. Ever since the birth of saris, puffed sleeved blouses have been a hot favourite amongst ladies. This adds charm and elegance to the complete look and have been worn by many Mughal queens and Empress of the imperial reign.
Whether you decide to pair the puffed sleeved blouse with a chic georgette sari or the ethnic Kachivaram silk, it will only enhance the beauty of the garb. For centuries ladies have donned ‘the puffed sleeved blouse’ to look majestic and sophisticated and they have been successful at every attempt.
This is our take on ‘the puffed blouse.’
People may talk a lot about the style and fashion involved with the creation and selection of saris, but the aspect of choosing the right fabric and style options available for blouses are no less important. Any plain sari can look great when paired with an exceptional blouse of a different or unusual cut and tailouring. And unconventional designs in blouses can add that added oomph factor.
The style of ‘puff-sleeved blouses’, though seemingly a modern take, has actually been in existence since the Mughal era, and still looks as alluring as it did in the royal households. Also, there is more than one way that the puffedsleeved blouses can be worn, adding to its charm through versatility.
