Women’s Salwar Kameez in all its Glory
The salwar kameez is a popular women’s ethnic wear that has been adapted in various styles and patterns over the years. While its origins point to Punjab and Pakistan, one can find women throughout the world flaunt this lovely number in different ways, creating styles of their own.
The Origin and History of Salwar Kameez
An outfit that originated in the region of Punjab, and Pakistan, the salwar kameez is commonly worn by women in both India and Pakistan. A three-piece suit, the outfit is made up of a kameez, which is a tunic, paired with a salwar and a dupatta. Resembling a loose pair of pajama or a similar pant, salwars are comfortable and convenient to be worn. Loved by all for the flexibility they provide and the style of the outfit, salwar suits make for a perfect attire for everyday use as well as to flaunt during events and celebratory functions.
With salwars, the trend of pairing the kameez with many other styles of bottoms came about, creating various versions of the outfit. You can choose the type of bottoms you prefer from a number of styles that are seen quite often, flaunted by women everywhere. Churidaars, patialas, pajamas, and palazzos are some of the most common choice in bottoms seen today that women love to flaunt.
While it is quite a common outfit these days, the popularity of the outfit increased decades ago, during the Mughal invasion. From its rise in popularity in the 12th century, this outfit has only managed to become more elegant and graceful with each innovative way of styling and design.
The Making of the Outfit
The making of the outfit, like most others, depends on the fabric being used and the handiwork and craftsmanship that goes into its making. The more detailed the embellishing, the longer it takes to design the fabric and have it stitched.
Where the use of fabrics was limited during its first debut, there have been a plethora of fabrics used in its making with the passing of the years, giving women more options to choose from and find outfits made of richer fabrics for important events that need more than just poise.
