Nailing Your Sleeve Designs: What Are the Types to Consider?

The sleeve designs have a huge say in making any blouse or outfit look great. Here are some of the variations you can try to get the perfect look for your wedding!

The Wedding Salad

Be it the bride or the other guests at a wedding, every one of you thinks a lot about the outfit you’re going to wear and you allot a major chunk of time to decide the kind of blouse you want. The major part of the blouse gets covered with the jewellery you wear so naturally, it is the sleeves that get a lot of attention. As a result, it is the sleeve designs you need to think about rather than the full blouse itself.

Of course, the designs can be throughout the blouse but the sleeves definitely need special attention. To help you out, we have come with an extensive list of sleeve designs in different styles and fabrics!

1. Go for beautiful embroideries

2. Ace your fabric choice by picking velvet

A blouse with net sleeves is fast becoming a common sight at Indian weddings. It has more to do with the summer heat that trending styles though!

The use of patterns and beads on the net takes away the otherwise bland nature of the fabric.
