Fashions come and go, but the evergreen saree always remains bang on trend. Traditionally, the Indian female dress has been saree. It’s so versatile that you can easily wear it for all sorts of occasions and at all ages. What do you think gives the saree this awesome appeal? Does a lot depend on your body shape and physique, the style to drape saree, its fabric or the blouse?
If you were to ask me – blouse wins hands down! A beautiful blouse can take a simple saree up the style ladder, while a drab one will jettison your heaviest saree to nadir. Same goes for lehengas – a good choli or blouse is integral to its beauty and appeal.
Unfortunately, many women tend to forget about blouse – whether it is about its look, design or color. Blouses are often paired in a hurry. And, when they want a trendy blouse later on, they find that the blouse piece with the saree is either not stylish enough or does not match with what they had in mind. The solution to all these problems is – a super versatile, be-it all ‘gold-beige blouse’ – to go with your wedding sarees or party-wear lehenga cholis.
Due to its versatility, gold-beige is a part of the classic ethnic color collection. This timeless, elegant and classic hue goes well with most ethnic apparels and settings. It suits the Indian skin tone perfectly well. Sarees of vivid colors can be paired with a stylish gold-beige blouse. All in all – it is undeniable that you have one or even more trendy and chic – as well as traditional and heavy – gold-beige blouses in your wardrobe. Confused as to which designs should you choose? Well, here is a list of 15 stunning gold shade blouses, we are currently crazy about –
- Intricately embroidered, three-fourth sleeved blouse
The elbow length sleeves are in fashion right now. They suit women of all body shapes. The golden embroidery on the blouse will uplift the entire look of the blouse as well as the saree (with which you will pair it). The sheer sleeves and the intricate embroidery will add to the classiness of your ensemble.
- High neck, full sleeved blouse
The high-neck blouses with resham embroidery or a pretty neckline look very edgy and stylish. Wear them, if you have a long neck, or are not heavy busted. Most of these blouses generally come in full sleeved designs, but you can also experiment with shorter sleeved designs – or go sleeveless. This art-silk blouse in this design is a perfect pick for the current wedding season.
- Boat neck
This design with sheer sleeves, shoulders and back is one of the hottest trends in blouses now. You can choose the areas, where you want the sheer fabric detail. It is also the most favorite pick among college-goers and young girls. This design can be a great choice for pairing with party wear sarees as well as wedding lehenga.
- Scalloped blouse
A simple blouse can be transformed to a modern one – with this lovely shape on the hems. The sheer sleeves with scalloped edges with golden hints add fairy-tale charm to this blouse. For an exotic feel, pair this blouse with a gorgeous georgette saree or a plain, bouncy, flared lehenga.
- Shrug Style
Perfect for a fashionista! When you wear a heavy lower outfit, go for simple and innovative blouses. Cape style blouses are a perfect fusion of the new-age trendiness and an old-world feminine charm. This style is super chic and lovely.
- Full length sleeves on dupion-silk, embroidered blouse
All time favorite! This is an evergreen blouse style, which women of all ages can wear. The sheer sleeves with heavy embroidered patches – pep up the charm of this practical blouse. The embroidery and stone work on the blouse are perfect accessories for a glam look.
- Plain bodice with heavy neckline
The cut-work lace on the neckline infuses this simple yet stylish blouse with a girly charm. This addition will make you look youthful in a saree. The embroidery lace on the sleeves also adds a rich look to the blouse. Don’t opt for this design, if you wish to wear heavy neck jewelry, though. It’s a good look for party scenarios and college farewell events.
- Collared Blouse
Collar neck design is a retro style, and looks great with office wear sarees and with college farewell and school events occasions.

You can choose sleeve lengths and neckline, which you want with sheer detail.
- Dupion-silk, three-fourth sleeved blouse
It is a blouse style and fabric that will never go out of fashion. Keep the blouse rather plain or lightly embroidered, if you want to pair this design with a saree which has heavy embroidery on the pallav. Since the base fabric of blouse is formal – it can be paired with a vast variety of sarees, including your plain saree, silk sarees or even satin sarees.
