The salwar kameez, popularly known as the Punjabi suit, is the traditional dress of women in the India. The Salwar Suit outfit comprises a pair of salwar and a tunic (kameez) that is usually paired with a dupatta. In recent years, the salwar kameez has become a popular form of attire among Indian women throughout India as well as in World.
The traditional kameez top is a loose-fitting, knee-length tunic with long sleeves. The tunic is worn by pulling it over the head through a round neckline that has a front slit.
The salwar kameez is usually paired with a long, sheer fabric scarf or shawl known as a dupatta, which is either draped across the neck or over the head. Decorative patterns may also be embroidered around the neckline, sleeves, hems and side slits of the outfit.
For many Indian women today, the salwar kameez is regarded as a functional outfit that suits their modern lifestyle needs better than the traditional sari. Unlike the sari, the salwar kameez does not have strong associations with tradition nor does it evoke anxieties of learning how to properly wrap and drape the outfit. In addition, its ease of wear allows women to move about more freely at the workplace
