Cotton sarees are extremely light weighted and good for daily wear, especially during the summer season. They are very easy to carry due to their light material. Cotton sarees are best paired with either a sleeveless blouse, or an elbow length (aka 3/4th length) blouse. You may also choose a high neck or collar neck blouse to match with your cotton saree. It all depends on the patterns and colour of your saree. If the cotton saree is plain, you may go for high neck or collar neck blouse to make a statement with it!
