Sheer is one of those trends that has held steam for over two seasons now. It inspires you to get as creative as you can, and also, you can sport it in multiple ways – you could look sensual and sexy, or go demure. There is a thin line that can make a sheer ensemble go from class to crass, from a woman being beautifully dressed to barely dressed! Net Blouses are a major part of this trend and have been around since many years and the trend doesn’t seem to be dying any soon. Bollywood has long championed the sex appeal of the net sari, presenting an ethnic styling option for the sheer trend. So, here are some latest net blouse designs that we spotted on our Bollywood celebrities recently and have begun a trend this year.
1. Sonam Kapoor in Net Blouse Designs
Sonam Kapoor recently paired a net sheer illusion blouse with a yellow and lime green half-and-half printed georgette saree. It is a sure must-have in any girl’s wardrobe! A neutral colour scheme is the key to being modest yet daring. It is classic and works every time, from casual brunches to semi-formal outings. Net blouses look best on women with well-toned bodies, like Sonam Kapoor here.If you are petite, restrict the sheer element to the hands, to give the illusion of longer arms. You can achieve this by having net only on the sleeves of the blouse. Girls with a heavy bust should avoid sheer on the upper torso. Work with interesting back and sleeve options to shift the focus.
Sonam Kapoor was recently spotted in a bespoke double pallu saree made by designer duo Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla. Her pink and white embroidered saree had a mosaic net blouse!
Sonam Kapoor’s lace and net off-shouldered blouse is a sure trend-setter.
2. Aishwarya Rai in White Lace and Net Blouse Pattern
At the L’oreal Women of Worth Awards, the ethereal Aishwarya Rai wore a white saree with lace and net blouse by Tarun Tahiliani. The saree had a floral border and a fringe pallu. This net blouse design shows that long sleeves can be sexy. If you had any doubt, take cues from Aishwarya, whose net sleeves leave a lot to the imagination. This is an easy look to replicate for any party this summer.
3. Katrina Kaif in a Net Blouse Design on a Pre-Stitched Saree
Tarun Tahiliani’s collection was influenced by the desert tribes of Kutch. Katrina Kaif, the showstopper of the show, wore an ivory pre-draped sari from the line. She completed the look with a rare silver nosepin, waist belt and signature white bangles typically worn by women of the region. The ivory color of the blouse and the sheer net fabric of the attached blouse makes for a bold look. Opt for it, only when you’re completely confident of your body!
4. Divya Khosla Kumar in a Net Saree Blouse
Divya Khosla Kumar opted for a blue net saree embellished with sequins to Screen Awards this year in 2016. It was paired with a backless net floral blouse. Net sarees and net blouses are widely used in Indian Bridal Wear and Trousseau and the ones with heavy embellishments and sequins like this one is a must have in your wedding trousseau.
5. Malaika Arora Khan in a Net Blouse Design
Malaika Arora’s AIFW 2016 collection showcased pre-draped nine yard sarees which had a lot of interplay between sheer and opaque fabrics. The bold cut-outs and statement backs of these pre-stitched net saree blouse designs had both a feminine touch and a contemporary appeal. These are perfect for evening parties, ofcourse!
Sheer fabrics other than net like organza and tulle will be continuing to trend this year. So, don’t leave these net blouse patterns out of your wardrobe. 😀
