Indian Clothing - Salwar Kameez
Western culture is developing a grand love affair with a distinctive fashion style that is Indian. Along with Indian music and spirituality, Indian Clothing is having a huge impact on the mainstream identities of western style and culture. Indian people express themselves a great deal through their clothing. Their spiritual quest for perfection plays a role in their choices of beautifully colored, dramatic, and flowing garments. The styles speak to the spirit with sumptuous, vibrant colors woven into the intricate and ornate designs to be found resonating throughout India.

Salwar Kameez, started as an alternative dress form Kashmir and Punjab, & it has grown in popularity all over India and in all the Muslim countries of the world, especially with younger women. With Celebrities like Goldie hawn, Sally field, Hillary Clinton, Jennifer Lopez and the Late Princess Diana adorning the Salwar (Shalwar) kameez at high profile events, this garment is clearly the current flavour in the West. Salwars are pajama-like trousers gathered at the waist and ankles, worn underneath a long, loose tunic known as a kameez.

Some tips on Salwar Kameez.

  • The kameez should be a little longer in height. It makes you look taller. If your height is around 5 feet 3 inches then your kameez height should be around 47- 48 inches.

  • If you have broad shoulders then avoid wearing puffed sleeves.

  • If you have fat arms and therefore cannot wear sleeveless then go in for sleeves of about 5-inch length. This will hide the flab on your arms and your hands will look thinner.

  • Salwar or shalwar can be worn in many styles. Styles keep changing with Trends. Recently big bottoms were in fashion and now short Kurtas are back in vogue.

  • Chudidar looks good on long kameez or Kurtas.

  • Avoid wearing them on short Kurtas. Chinese collar (closed neck) makes you look tall, but avoid it if you have broad shoulders.

  • Tucks might be out of fashion but they give a very good cut to the Kameez.

  • Avoid Organza or any stiff cloth if you want to look slimmer.

  • Dark colours like maroon, red, blue or brown look very good on dark women.
