Boishakh ushers in the second fashion season of the year. While the Bengali New Year comes with its own uniform, there’s no reason why you can’t stand out amidst the sea of red and white saris. A statement blouse gives any sari an instant update. Here are five styles worth trying out this season. Sheer blouseBELL OF THE BALL Bell sleeves are enjoying a huge fashion moment on global catwalks and in the pages of magazines. Why not adopt the trend for your sari blouses? The look is wonderfully retro-chic and contemporary at the same time. Pair it with a sleek updo, and you’re instantly channelling zamindari vibes. SHEER STYLE For a look that’s equal parts naughty and nice, opt for a full-sleeved blouse with sheer details. Whether it’s the sleeves or shoulders that are made of the sheer fabric, showing just a hint of skin while still fully covered up makes a great impact. pattern play PATTERN PLAY We’re all about the mixed prints trend – a bold, timeless statement of self expression. Pick a printed blouse in a contrasting colour scheme, and it will make your sari pop. Bibi Productions, Jatra and Aranya have some beautiful ready-made options for you to grab in a pinch. crop blouseCROP COUTURE No time to have a fancy new blouse made? Don’t worry about it. Head to Urban Truth or Astorion to pick up one of their ridiculously cute crop tops and wear one of those babies with your cotton sari. Adding some vintage jewellery makes for a look that is at once edgy and feminine. jacket blouseJACKET RACKET If you really want to turn heads, though, just throw on a lightweight summer jacket or tailored shrug over your sari, and roll up the sleeves. While this isn’t a look one would recommend for the outdoor Boishakh events, as it can get pretty hot and muggy outside; it’s definitely worth a shot for that dawat. Soften the look with delicate jewellery and flowers in your hair.
