India is renowned for its high quality textiles and striking garments. Sarees is undoubtedly a star attraction, but at the same time salwar kameez shines high on the list. It is a versatile, comfortable outfit consisting of three key pieces. The long tunic, called the kameez (or kurta), is worn on top of the loose pair of trousers called salwar. The ensemble is paired with a flowing scarf called the dupatta or odhni.
Salwar suits have been worn in India since medieval times. Over the years, they have evolved to absorb the changing trends and styles. The main attraction of the salwar suit is its versatility. An Indian salwar kameez can be worn at a casual occasion, a party or a formal event, depending on the designs used to decorate the outfit.
