Indian Apparels / Clothing

Home » Apparels
Indian dressing is greatly influenced by the background and culture of people. Indian garments and classic fashion styles have earned appreciation all around the world.
The traditional clothes of Indian women are Sari and Choli.
The Salwar Kameez is the second most popular dress gaining attraction fast with the younger generation. This Indian dress which has had many design changes was evolved as a comfortable and respectable garment for women in Kashmir and Punjab region, but is now immensely popular in all regions of India. Salwars are pyjama-like trousers drawn tightly in at the waist and the ankles. Over the salwars, women wear a long and loose tunic named kameez. Another variant stitched dress of the similar pattern is churidar-kurta. A churidar is similar to the salwar but is tighter fitting at the hips, thighs and ankles. Over this, one wears a kurta, a collarless or mandarin-collar tunic.
Women also wear Lehangas.
Men in all regions in India wear shirts and trousers. However, men in villages are still more comfortable in traditional attire like kurtas, lungis, dhotis and pyjamas.
Ancient Indian fashion garments generally used no stitching although Indians knew about sewing. Most clothes like the Indian Dhoti, the Scarf or Uttariya, and the popular Turban for men, the Dhoti or the Sari as the lower garments combined with a Stanapatta for women were ready to wear just as they left the loom.
