Long gone are the days when sleeves were just an extension of the blouse. Or meant merely to cover one’s bare arms. Sleeves today are a style statement of their own and often the perfect contrasting element to a blouse. It is often said that “it is all in the details” and we couldn’t agree more. The look of the sleeves can completely transform the style quotient of a blouse. They can be extravagantly ruffled or full of feathers or even intricately embroidered and finished off with a gotta Patti. We came across some fascinating sleeves to accentuate and flatter every bride’s arms as an evergreen accessory. You are not gonna want to go sleeveless this wedding season! Whether they’re exaggerated balloon sleeves. Layered bell sleeves or gathered dropping shoulders, play around with the fabric itself to oomp up your outfit. This will surely set it apart from your ordinary sleeve design.
Fringe blouses can always be an ‘in’ thing; it is quite literally there in the word (fr-IN-ge). Fringes that curtain your shoulders. And sway as you move to look ultra-chic and at the same time give your blouse that fun element it needed. Fringe blouses are mostly beaded but brides can also go for a silk threaded fringe to give it a little stiffness and to ensure it is not all over the place! Faux feathers make a lovely bottom lining of a lehenga or a cape, but it also makes an elegant choice once used for the sleeves. Faux feathers and fur highlight the extravagance of a blouse and add to its pomp and flair. Feathers are an iconic touch graced upon us by designers like Manish Malhotra and Falguni and Shane Peacock, who have made it a big part of their bridal collections.
