Styling the print on print look

Posted by Deepika Suresh on

Matching printed saris with printed blouses is quite avant-garde. Here are a few styling tips and hacks to up the sari game.

“Stripes go with most prints”

Shift from a sober, office wear look to an evening look with the same striped blouse. Stripes are considered ‘neutral’ and can go with almost any other kind of prints.

Yellow and blue can never fail. Here we have dark blue stripes printed on a blue blouse fabric. The bright yellow sari with bold black prints is woven on a power loom and hand block printed .
You can also pair the same striped blouse with the more subtly printed kota sari with a delicate block print in lighter yellow.


“Play with the size of the prints”

Pair a bold print on the sari with a subtle print on the blouse or vice versa. Pair geometrics with abstracts to stand out from the crowd.

Pair a bold black print on a Chettinad sari with a tribal printed beige blouse. The monotony of the geometrics is beautifully offset by the quirkiness of the tribal print, providing the perfect segue from work to play.


“Enjoy the blues”

Indigos offer a wide canvas to experiment with prints and colours. Pair the sari with a blouse in shades of blue for a more elegant, uniform look. Or pick a blouse in a contrast colour to be a sure head turner.

We present two of our favourite combinations for indigo saris.

Blues and yellows, delicate dots and bold squares. The contrasts in print and colour paint a pretty picture. Pair with some contemporary silver jewellery and you are ready for the Saturday afternoon coffee date with your friends

Pair a bold print on the indigo sari with a self printed pretty pink blouse. Easily worn for that work presentation or Sunday morning brunch.

Do tell us what you think of these combinations and what are some interesting combinations you have tried 


  • Hi
    I would rather you gave me a plain blouse for printed fabrics as I feel printed blouses on printed sarees is a bit too glaring
    If i need to match a different blouse i would do so .
    I prefer kalamkari and ikat designs when it comes to blouses
    Purely my opinion
