So, you found the sari of your dreams—now it’s time to find a head-turning blouse to help you stand out from the crowd this festive season. From Khushi Kapoor’s Gen Z-approve silhouettes to Malaika Arora’s love for a risqué design, here are all the experimental styles that will help you refresh the usual suspects:

Dramatic Sleeves

When in doubt, let your sleeves do the talking. While cold shoulder silhouettes have been around for a while now, Khushi Kapoor elevated hers by opting for dramatic bishop-style tulle sleeves.

Backless Blouse

Malaika Arora’s love for statement-making blouses is well-known on the shores of Bollywood, and it comes as little surprise that her ivory pick from couturier Manish Malhotra was accompanied by a backless blouse with beaded embellishments.

Bustier Blouse

For those looking to blur the lines on the conventional codes of festive dressing, Kiara Advani recommends opting for an outré silhouette—like her bustier-style blouse that she layered under a floor-grazing embroidered jacket and flared sharara pants.

Strapless Blouse

Leave those slinky gowns behind and instead, look to a sultry black sari to have all eyes on you at cocktail hour. Further inspiration can be found with Priyanka Chopra’s embroidered drape that she pinned over a strapless blouse.

Plunging Neckline

Bold is the new black this season, and Ananya Panday clearly agrees. If you are looking to stand out in a sea of pastels, opt for a noir number like hers and pay special attention to the details—an embroidered blouse with a scoop neckline will help you channel your inner showstopper.
