13 Exciting And Sexy Blouse Back Designs That Will Make Everyone Go ‘Palat’!
The saree blouse is not just an article of clothing, it is a movement. From countless Bollywood songs marvelling at the backless numbers in shaadi sequences to it creating literal Twitter wars…the blouse is a BIG deal to desi women. The quest to find the right blouse design for a saree or a lehenga has led women to many narrow gullies and by lanes of local markets. It has also managed to spawn long-lasting relationships with our local tailors. With patient ears and great powers of deduction, our favourite masterji can decode the kind of design we have in mind put it to a pattern. If that’s not a craft well-deserving of a proper pay, then we don’t know what is!
But the festive season is almost upon us and we are feeling a bit generous! We spent our keen style spotting skills and put together an exhaustive look book with the trendiest blouse designs that will be the talk of the town this season. For this list, we are focussing on the blouse back neck designs, which are some parts elegant, some parts sexy and all parts fabulous!
Tie And Butterfly!
Nature has been one of the biggest inspirations, as far as neck designs for a blouse is concerned. We are already familiar with ‘paan patta‘ shaped backs and floral detailing on the hems. There are many design inspirations we can pick from just about any part of nature. For shaadi season 2019, we are anticipating pastels to be one of the go-to looks. And a butterfly back blouse is just what we need to pair them up with.
The Bandeau Tie!
What better way to do a romantic summer wedding than in a bandeau blouse cut with a soft tie in the back? A while back, we spotted Manushi Chillar in a pretty hand-painted saree from Picchika by Urvashi Sethi and it is perfect for a low key afternoon soiree. We are looking forward to beating the Indian summer blues with this blouse, which is basically a bikini top at this point!
Of T-Back Blouses!
When it comes to sexy neck design for blouse, the spaghetti and T-back designs are the best ones out there! We were charmed to spot the many mosaic T-back blouses in the Pankaj & Nidhi couture show. A definitive standout look for our lehengas this Dandiya season, this style will keep us grooving till the wee hours of the morning!
Window Double Tie
Window patterns for blouse back designs are a classic look in bridal couture. The soft curves and chic cuts of designs are perfect for complementing elaborate sarees and lehengas. Given that brides have cornered the market for beautiful blouse designs, we figured we should find some for their besties instead! The double tie inverted window back is sure to fetch many comments and we can’t wait!
The Low Halter Back
One of the latest blouse designs for back, the “barely there” blouse trend was ushered in with the cocktail saree. The party saree comes in a lightweight silk or georgette material and demands an equally statement-making blouse. We love this halter neck fitted blouse from Anita Dongre’s Spring Summer 19 collection and want to try it ASAP!
Strap & Sheer
There are two ways we can customise our blouses. One with pattern cuts and second by adding trims like lace panels and colourful latkans. Ace designers, Shyamal and Bhumika, updating their bandeau blouses with sheer drop sleeves was a whole ‘Mood’ for the bridal couture show. We, too, love to go the extra mile and can’t wait to try this style. Just make sure to pick a semi-stitched blouse to experiment on!
Chic Caged Back!
Regardless of how long it takes to tie the many dhagas on the back, the caged blouse design for the back is a traditional fave. The slimming gradient on this particular blouse, ending in a dainty knot is so cute. We can so easily see this design incorporated in our full and quarter sleeved blouses!
The Full ‘Kaaj’ Blouse
We can attribute this particular inspiration for a blouse design to ace designer Sabyasachi and his Bengali roots. Traditional Bengali blouses feature work on different patches of the fabric. Called Kaaj, this heavy embroidery or beading sometimes adorns the entirety of the back and comes in as a much-needed alternative to open back blouses which leave no room for a bra.
The ‘PeeCee’ Blouse
When pictures from Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner’s french wedding hit the internet, we were stunned to see sister-in-law Priyanka Chopra Jonas in the prettiest pink saree ever. Decked out in a blush sheer saree, PeeCee’s gapped blouse design was definitely one of the highlights. The geometric cut at the back is a stylish contradiction to the feminine saree and we want one!
The Sash Back
Remember the added trims we talked about a while back? Well, a sash is as good as it gets when it comes to adding details to the blouse back. The trick lies in using the excess fabric left from the lehenga fabric to add an extra layer of fall in the blouse. We are looking at Aditi Gupta’s Banarasi collection for ideas and it’s paying off!
The Scalloped Back!
Scalloped border designs are the usual way to go for lehenga blouses. But more often than not, they will be featured on the outer border. An Abhinav Mishra creation, though, has given scallop borders a much-needed upgrade in this open-back alternatively layered blouse. When the blouse looks this good, we can skip all the other unnecessary embellishments and that’s just slightly freeing!
The Stacked Tie-Ups!
Another fun style we spotted that can solve all of our garba outfit woes, the stacked tie-up style leaves no room for a bra, so if you are well-endowed, this might not be one that you’ll love. Adding cute tassels at the end of the tie ups to having to get facials for the back…this style is sure to keep things exciting!
The Sweetheart Back!
For ladies craving a tasteful cleavage style, the sweetheart neckline is a blessing in disguise. This blouse from the label Jade gave us an idea on how to beautify the sweetheart neck with the back and it is fine AF. A carefully placed D’orsay cut and wide bow at the back of a blouse can be the one thing to jazz up our ensemble and we are ready to take that leap!
