This festive season give your wardrobe a new look by adding some designer blouses

The one common thing about every Indian women's wardrobe is it has sarees, they are passed on by mom's, mother in laws, gifts, curated carefully over years. Post pandemic all our buying interests have shifted, days of lockdown have certainly changed the way we dress. I have a few suggestions for the upcoming festival season, we have Ganesh Chaturthi, Onam, Navarathri, Diwali all coming our way. We can actually give our Kanjeevarams a new look with multicoloured blouses, some Ajrakhs and Ikats. You can add a few raw silk blouses to your wardrobe and match it to your banarasis. This whole idea of adding new blouses to the wardrobe is to help you be festive ready with minimal shopping activities. It's a a trick I am currently embracing to help me feel good about my wardrobe and also the fact that I have more zoom meetings. Recycling these sarees leaves me happier, helps me lead the way, a lot of my women folk know my love for sarees and were always appreciative of my collection. With the pandemic my life changed, I choose to dress innovatively and also style myself in a new look with my old saree. My go to designer for my blouses is Kara, Raina Raj is a smart designer she has a range of blouses, and a very colourful collection. I also like some blouses from Suta this is an online brand and quirky. I also like Tara bespoke studio for my fusion blouses. The fun in choosing blouses from these three brands is that you are not only experimenting with colours but also a lot of designs. I tried some sleevless, halter neck, leaf necks, V necks, boat necks. Raina Raj Founder Kara says" It gives me immense pleasure in designing these blouses, lot of our high profile clients come with expensive sarees and find the right blouse for all occasions, I get complimented for the creativity in my design and that is so priceless for me."

Amrutha Yuvraj Founder Tara Bespoke says "We have designed blouses that will suit your occasion and also you will be able to mix and match. We have some classic blouses that can be paired with your kasavu, silk sarees,handloom saree collections ,we can also customize ."

So this festive season, you may shop for some blouses online, mostly the fit is perfect.
