Bollywood Cholis and Designer Sari Blouses
Choli is a blouse worn on a saree or a Lehenga in Indian attire. Though the saree is a patent outfit for most of the cultures in India, saree is considered as a formal wear for women. Choli has undergone dramatic transformation and is a trend amongst today’s fashion lovers.

The piece of cloth worn covering the chest for women is known as Choli in India or a blouse. It is worn in two styles; one is long till the hips and short just above the waist.

Choli is a very old style inculcated in India. Earlier the blouses were simple with round neck and sleeves till elbow and usually a plain cloth used of different colors matching with the saree. The elaborate Cholis were usually the masterpieces of Royal Gharanas of India. They were embellished with intricate designs using precious stones and zari thread. The cloth used for the purpose also was rich in color and texture. Each of the designs was hand embroidered which was only affordable by the Royal families.

The old age styles have seen a drastic transformation bought by the designers. The Choli now has both the modern and contemporary look. You will find short, ¾ or long sleeves in fashion today. Till now the short sleeves were quite in vogue. The long sleeves are back in fashion with netted fabric. The neck lines vary as per the designs.

Usually the Choli come with heavy embroidery and colorful dories attached to a string behind with an inch of cloth supporting it. To make the look more appealing behind, you can just use golden strings to tie knots or use designed embroidered clamps to the strings to hold or give a zig-zag design with thin embroidered straps. They look elegant and sexy on both lehengas and sarees. Above all, the best part is the use of different material for the Choli. Earlier the blouses were made only using cotton and silk.
