The Popular Taste of Salwar Kameez

Salwar Kameez are comfortable and fashionable. This trendy outfit has only changed its avatar over time with elegant innovations and designs.

Variety or types of Salwar Kameez:

Salwars are available in a wide range of silks like chiffon silk, satin silk, crepe silk, tussar silk and paper silk. Salwar kameez has imbibed many styles of embroidery such as Jaipuri Bhandei, Luknawi Chinkankari and South Indian Chanderi to name a few. For women with those extra inches, we have custom suits or specially tailored suits.

The range in salwar styles includes Parallel Salwar suits, Patiala Style salwar Suits, Pakistani or Pathani Salwar Suits, Sharara Salwar Suits, Indo-Western Kurta with Legging. Crepe Salwar Suit, Bandhej or Bandhani Salwar Suits, Chikan Salwar Suits, and hand embroidered Salwar Suits.

The Afgani Suit :

The salwar is very baggy and is often embroidered along the leg or ankle. The kameez is shorter than a traditional suit, ranging from mid-thigh to above the knee. This suit can be sleeveless.

The parallel suit:

It is similar to the salwar suit except that the pants are like trousers or slightly flared like a boot cut. The parallel pant is often embroidered or designed to match the kurta which may be short or knee length. Kurtas with this type of pant can be sleeveless or with thin straps or strapless depending on the design. A dupatta with the parallel suit is optional.


The Pathani:

An indigenous dress in for males belonging towards Afghanistan and Pakistan, Pathani fits consist of turn out to be the initial option of adult males remaining inside of India and overseas. Available in silk, khadi and polyester besides cotton. Pathani suits are perfect for formal and special days and have detailed embellishments and embroidery in a large array of colors.

Sharara Salwar suit:

Sharara Style Salwar Kameez have wide leg pants and look like full dresses with draw stringed waist. The bottoms are fitted till the knees with a big-flare from the knee down or a kind of loose, tralling pajama worn by a woman.

The Short Kurta pant:

Another innovation in churidar fashion was the short kurta pant. With westernization the salwar kameez adapted to fashion changes in the West in terms of cut, length and hemlines. The kurta did sneak up quite a few inches above the knee. And instead of the salwar, pants were worn, making it ideal for office and formal wear. The pants came in parellel, capris and bell-bottom styles.

Personalisation and Accessorising:

Accessorise your attire with floral printed scraves, brooches and jewellery. Yellow is the hot colour with brighter shades for the day and deeper hues fo rthe evening. Combining pastels with a pop of bright colour is doable.

A pastel shaded saree with a bright coloured blouse or a subdued salwar kameez with a bright dupatta is pretty hot. The 'Leheriya' print of horizontal lines created by the tie and dye process is a must in kurtas, dresses, sarees, dupattas or lehenga cholis.
