Salwar Kameez is the traditional and the most popular dress that is worn by the Indian women. This is perhaps the most admirable and comfortable outfit that ladies love to wear.

The beauty lies in the fact that these outfits are both well-liked as regular as well as occasional wears. It is highly popular among the women in India. To no surprise, its popularity has now jumped across the borders and has occupied the hearts and minds of women living across the globe.

Over the period, the suits and sarees have evolved to a great extent. There are many versions that got introduced. They are often called as ‘Punjabi suits’ as this outfit is majorly worn in the state of Punjab.

These suits define the latest trends of salwar kameez. Moving to its basic definition, these suits come in three sections, two of the three all, are salwar and kameez and third one is the dupatta packed along.

Salwar: Salwars are recognized as loose pajamas that appear like trousers. The bottom is quite narrow whereas the top stands pretty wide. In salwars, the legs are wide that get conical towards the ankles. It is very easy to carry the traditional salwars that offer quite a lot of space for free movement.

Kameez: The kameez or kurta is the top in the set. It is the knee length flowing shirt that can be stated as the tunic which is worn above churidar or a salwar. There have been lots of changes and trials made with the length of kameez and kurtas but ultimately the length is kept till knees. The side seams are usually left open that offer great freedom to the wearer to make movements. Area where your dress designer experiments and uses his creativity is the area is neckline and the work on front.

Dupatta: It is recognized as a long scarf and shawl that is either a plain or a designer piece which is usually worn around the neck. A dupatta gives final touch to the overall look and grace of a suit. It completes the ensemble and is given huge consideration and thought before actually one buys the entire set of salwar kameez. Earlier women used to place it on their heads so as to keep it covered to pay respect to elders or during religious ceremonies. It has now become an art of fashion that is either hanged on both the shoulders or is draped around the chest.
