Is it just me or do you also cringe at the thought of summer weddings? When it comes to Indian wear and summer heat, you mostly want to stay away from fabrics like silk and such. You don’t want to melt into a puddle in the baaraat, do you? No, you don’t. There’s only one thing you can look to in these times: cotton. Whether it’s kurtas, sarees or blouses, cotton is the coolest. Literally. While within kurtas and sarees you have more than enough quirky options to choose from, it’s tough to find stylish cotton blouses, isn’t it?
If you want something special and quirked up, you have to beg your masterji to make you priority. Not to mention taking a trip to Lajpat Nagar to find the perfect fabric, trims and borders. I’d rather wear a crop top with my saree than go to the cloth market in this heat. I know you feel the same, so here are 7 quirky cotton blouses that you can buy right now!
This out-of-the-ordinary blouse is half desi, half western and all cotton. Wearing this number at a summer wedding is going to be no hassle at all. While that calms my soul, why I love this piece is the tassel detail on the loose, boxy sleeves.
Stick close to light colours and airy blouse silhouettes this summer. This elegant cape blouse is just the dressy number you were on a quest for. Wear your saree in a quirky drape with this blouse to stand out, shaadi style.

100% cotton. Isn’t that music to your ears in the summer? This Mandarin collar blouse has the most unique kalamkari print on the front. Mix and match this desi piece with your plain sarees, or sarees with special weaves.
When you think of checks and stripes, you typically think of western wear, don’t you? This one-of-a-kind blouse by Anavila is what your tired saree wardrobe needs. Plus, the colours are perfect for summer. Make it yours, now.
This desi crop top is the kind of blues you want to be living, all summer long. Styling this beauty is easy breezy, but if you’re feeling bold, work some print on print action. Pick a light-hued saree with checks or stripes to mix it up.
Up The Frill
Level up your blouse game with this pretty yet quirky piece. To do justice to this summer-worthy top, style it with a vibrant coloured chiffon or crepe saree. We’re talking yellows, greens and blues; accessorise with embellished shoes and sparkly drop earrings.
The 3D floral embellishment on these sleeves are what I live for! A Chinese collar, boxy silhouette, and statement sleeves. Is there anything else this desi showstopper needs? No. Style it with a vibrant solid sari and minimalistic jewellery.
