When was the last time you wore a saree this year? Yeah, we can’t remember either. However, with the festive season rolling in full swing, you can now put those long-forgotten ethnic pieces to some great use. Don’t know where to start? Our say: Begin by amping up your Zoom call looks with multiple blouse styles. Trust us, the correct blouse can uplift your whole ensemble. Whether you’ll be wearing a saree or a lehenga set, let these celebrities give you some great blouse design ideas.

Blouse styles
Choose unique cuts

If you're opting for pastel shades, experiment with cuts in your neckline to add an oomph factor to your look. Take cues from Kiara Advani.
Blouse styles
Go bold, go extra

Turn your monochrome saree from drab to fab with the addition of exaggerated bell sleeves and a contrasting neckpiece, just like Kriti Sanon.
Blouse styles
Break the print

Wondering how to ace the print-on-print trend? Trust Sonakshi Sinha to help you out. Stick to the same tones and break the print of your blouse with a cropped shirt of a different print. Knot it in the front to give it some edge.
Blouse styles
Boho vibes only

Take a leaf out of Tara Sutaria's book and add some fun element to your bohemian look. A wrap blouse with bishop sleeves will do the trick. Wondering how to style it? Keep it minimal with a no-makeup makeup look.
Blouse styles
Mix and match

Need a last-minute idea? Janhvi Kapoor is here to inspire you. Match your traditional lehenga with western elements by pairing it with a white ruffled shirt. If you like a good DIY, you can choose to crop an old shirt too and style it with a high pony, dewy makeup and heavy earrings.
Add subtle sheen

Kareena Kapoor Khan shows us how to go about styling metallics subtly. She paired her strappy, metallic blouse with a sequin saree of a similar tone and finished her look with a dual-layered diamond necklace.
Some groundbreaking florals  

Miranda Priestly might not like florals but we do, and so does Katrina Kaif. A watercolour effect, floral-printed blouse is a great option for daywear. Compliment your look with chaandbalis and you're good to go.
The one that's got your back

Karisma Kapoor sports a red saree with a simple, closed-neck, embroidered blouse. The deep round cut at the back certainly elevated her look. A low bun and ethnic earrings completed her outfit.
Multicoloured co-ords FTW

There's nothing like "too much colour" when it comes to the festive season. Take hints from Ananya Panday who opted for a stunning multicoloured embroidered blouse and lehenga set.
