Fashionable blouse to pair with saris
sari is the quintessential fashion statement for any Bengali woman. It’s an emotion so raw and powerful that it is often handed down from one generation to another with love, respect and pride, and the hope that the newer members of the family will see the sari gracefully through her time.
Fashion is ever fluid and dynamic and no fad outlives its predecessor for long. In times when women prefer to make a statement with their outfits, it is only fitting that the sari should evolve with the generations and embrace the fresh interpretations of its time while keeping true to its essence of sheer elegance.
The demand of the time for the sari wearing girl of today is undoubtedly the contrasting blouse and we are all about that look. As Silmat Chisti, founder of Nobo Dhaka, a heritage fabric revival initiative, and a sari enthusiast says, “Contrast blouses are a reflection of the times. Its liberating not to always be proper and matchy-matchy and it’s an ode to slow fashion where you can mix and match one blouse with several saris or vice versa.”
