Isn’t it common to have a few different types of red saree blouses in your wardrobe? Though this is true, we suggest you to take a closer look at those blouses! We bet that you will be surprised at how similar they actually are! This happens because it is a common mind-set to equate a red saree blouse with very traditional kind of fashion.

A red saree blouse can be used in many ways to create unique looks. You just need to play around with the cut and surface detailing of the blouse. To give you a more expanded idea, we have compiled a list of 25 red saree blouses that will inspire you to create fashion statements of your own. We have divided the list into four parts – wedding looks, traditional looks, contemporary looks and experimental looks.

10. Zari Embroidery
Red is a color that forms the best background for gold. Zari embroidery is an Indian art that can rarely be seen these days. So to give your regular red saree blouse look a strong ethnic twist you can get one with zari embroidery, just like the one in the picture. The embroidery is minimal and this is the reason why the design stands out.
11. The Gujarati Choli
When it comes to styles close to the Indian soil, colors like red, orange, brown, mustard etc work like magic. Bandhni and mirror work hails from Gujarat and the saree blouse in the picture is in fact a choli that can be worn both with a lehenga skirt or a saree. Such cholis have tie-up closure at the back which ensures a clean look in the front. Those of you who prefer to wear plain, solid sarees with just a border can opt for such a blouse.
12. The Red Ikkat Blouse
The ikkat weave of Odisha and Andhra Pradesh looks great on colors like red, black and yellow. A blouse made up of red ikkat fabric, like the one in the picture, looks extremely artistic and sophisticated. It is an intrinsically ethnic piece!
13. The Banarasi Blouse
This warm toned red Banarasi blouse is an apt choice for traditional looks as well as fusion-pairing. In this case, it has been paired with a tussar saree with an ikkat border. The saree has also been draped in a unique way. Even if you are not into fusion clothing, such a red saree blouse will complement all your white, off-white, cream and beige sarees.

A unique red saree blouse – this one has a slit below the left shoulder from where one can insert the pallu of a cocktail saree. Such a blouse will complement only a fusion saree or a cocktail saree. The short sleeves & net design on the top part of the blouse would not go with a traditional saree.
15. Red Boat Neck Blouse
If you prefer to dress more simply yet don’t want to go for something totally stereotypical try pairing a simple red saree with a plain red boatneck blouse with elbow length sleeves. The style is simple yet clean and trendy. The simple yet smart look of a red boatneck saree blouse is timeless!
16. The Diamond-Slit Back
17. The Red Net Blouse
Another trendy and aesthetic variation in a simple red saree blouse is the use of net. Net can be used around the neckline of the blouse. The sleeves can also be made up of net. In this case, a short sleeve saree blouse has been given a net back. The line of buttons runs all along the length of the blouse, at the back, and creates a unique design.
18. A Single Motif
This is another simple red blouse with round neck and elbow-length sleeves. What makes space for this blouse in this list is the single unique golden motif at the back.
19. Sleeveless Boatneck Blouse
This is an everyday wear red saree blouse that is versatile in the true sense of the term. This sleeveless, boatneck blouse can be paired with any saree. The look carried in this picture is simple yet gorgeous!
20. Block Print Red Blouse
Want to wear a red saree blouse on a hot day? Yes, blouses with zari or brocade work will make you sweat a lot. Instead, we suggest that you go for a cotton blouse preferably with block print designs. This looks really great with cotton sarees like dhakai jamdani, Odisha cottons etc. It may also go well with tussar sarees.
Experimental Styles Blouses
21. The Halter Neck Batik Blouse
We have considered this as an experimental piece because it combines a traditional style with a contemporary cut – it is a batik blouse shaped like a halter-neck crop top. The fabric is batik– an art hailing form Shantiniketan of West Bengal. The batikart involves the creation of designs by using melted wax on fabric and then immersing the fabric in color.
The parts that are covered in wax remain uncoloured. Later when the fabric is again immersed in warm water to wash off the wax, the designs come alive. Here, the batik blouse has been paired with a dhakai saree.
22. The Tie-Up Closure
Most saree blouses come with hook-and-eye closures in the front. This ensures a good fit but is incapable of giving a clean look in the front. To bring in variation in the closure and to ensure that both the front and the back of the blouse look equally elegant, you can go for this kind of a red saree blouse.
The printed red cotton fabric goes well with the style. The sleeves come in a different print and the tie-up strings in a black print give the blouse a boho look.
23. The Top-Style Red Blouse
24. The Gamchha Inspired Blouse
A gamchha is a piece of cotton fabric used in West Bengal and Odisha as a towel. A gamchhamay be available in various types but the most popular and widely available are those that have red checks on a white surface. The gamchha was popularized in the fashion industry by Bangladeshi fashion designer Bibi Russell. Here a blouse made up of the same type of fabric or one resembling a gamchha has been paired with a Habaspuri Saree of Odisha.
25. The Red Crop Top
