The Secret To An Elegant Blouse

The Secret To An Elegant Blouse

In earlier days blouse refers to the loose-fitting upper garment that women wore.  But nowadays it implies the shirt of a girl or women. However, we can distinguish between a typical shirt and a blouse by a fact that a shirt covers the whole upper body, that is, from neck to waist or below. But a blouse to some extent reveals your body, that is, it only covers your upper body from neck to your belly button. Leaving the area between the belly button and waist uncovered or slightly covered.

Mostly the brides wear a blouse. The blouse is considered as a  typical bridal attire. There are a lot of styles of the blouse. You can choose the one that suits your body frame.  Most of the blouses reveal your back. But you can make a choice whether you want to reveal or not. However, the revealed back looks incredibly appealing when it comes to the blouse. Many women prefer the blouse that has a design on its back.

Dos and don’ts of an elegant blouse


  • If you have wide shoulders, wear a bikini blouse or a sleeveless.
  • If you have thin arms go for full sleeves.
  • Go for half sleeves if you have a healthy athletic body.
  • If you are wearing the blouse with lehnga or saree go for a lighter or darker color blouse. You don’t have to matchy-matchy.
  • Your work should be on the sleeves because the whole blouse will be covered with a dupatta.
  • If you are wearing a blouse that is sheer or revealing from back or shoulder, sew cups in the blouse to avoid inappropriateness.
  • You can also get an extra chit button inside your shoulder of the blouse to tuck your bra strap.


  • Don’t be a trend follower. Make sure the blouse matches your body frame.
  • When you buy a ready-made blouse make sure it fits you. If you are buying fabric for a blouse, make sure to place it in the water minimum for 2 hours. Your fabric might shrink after washing.
  • Make sure your blouse isn’t too tight because a loose blouse can be fitted but a fitted blouse cannot be loosened.
  • If your sleeves are tight then it will make your arm bulge where it ends.
  • Don’t go for a metal work, if you do so it will tear the fabric.
  • Your dupatta should not cover the entire blouse.
  • Don’t Opt for the embroideries that are itchy, else it will make you uncomfortable throughout the event.

To sum up, we can say that a blouse, as it seems, is a very little piece of cloth covering your body, but it needs an intensive care to wear. If you don’t pay any heed to its fitting, color etc. it will bomb your overall look. As a result, your elegance will run out. You can Google for the designs of the blouse and can select the appropriate one for you.

    I must admit, that when it comes to blouses, I am SO much better at shopping for other woman than I am for myself.  So much so, that my girlfriends always drag me shopping with them and, even ring me for suggestions now that I live in another state!  

    My favorite suggestion in your article is to steer clear from trending blouses!  Like you said, a blouse is revealing something of your upper body.  I would rather wear ‘same styled’ blouses that really compliment my form than what’s trending in magazines on stick straight models! 

    Excellent advice on soaking cloth to make your own blouse from as well.  Blouse material is not easy to work with as it is and, often more costly especially, if you don’t consider your tips!
