SHALWAR KAMEEZ:

Think Indian Ethnic clothing for women and the one most common ensemble that comes to mind apart from a saree is Shalwar Kameez. Popularly known as Salwar Kameez, this outfit is a staple for most Indian and South Asian women giving a stiff competition to the saree – the six-yard wonder which is the go-to outfit for most Indian Fashion wearers.

You could be any age and getting ready for any occasion, be it casual or formal wear, it is highly likely that if you are opting for an Indian attire, you will decide to wear a Shalwar Kameez from the whole variety of your wardrobe. After all, there is much to be said for the grace and the comfort of Shalwar Kameez that makes it a wardrobe staple – no matter what style you may pick.

 

What is salwar kameez?

For the uninitiated, the Shalwar Kameez is a traditional attire worn by both men and women in South Asia and Central Asia. It includes a tunic and trousers combination wherein the tunic is not tucked into the trouser unlike the western style Shirt and belted trouser combo. The tunic is referred to as KAMEEZ and the trouser is known as SHALWAR. Both the garments come in a variety of styles. However, some features of the attire remain constant.

While Shalwar is always held together by a fabric string and drawn in at the waist while wearing, to give the appearance of pleats around the waist, the Kameez almost always reaches the knee length of the wearer and could be longer. In addition, giving the long length and usual straight cut the Kameez has side slits on the side seams, just below the waist, known as ‘chaak’ in order to allow the wearer ease and freedom of movement.

 

Origin History and Styles of Salwar Kameez:

The origin of the Shalwar Kameez can be traced to the 13th century in the Indian Subcontinent were the ensemble came to the region with the arrivals of the Muslim populations from Central Asia. Initially it was a garment worn by Muslim women. With time the use of the garment spread to other communities and acquired popularity, especially in North India as a regional style.

Given the location of Punjab and its proximity to central Asian culture, the most widespread use of the garment came to happen in this region and gradually it carried over into other areas, especially in the North of India.

Today the salwar Kameez combination is actually popular all over India and even with Indians abroad. In fact, it has found takers among women from other countries who wish to style themselves in comfortable and graceful Indian wear be it while travelling in India or dressing up for Indian Weddings and other festivities.

Even among South Asian women, the Shalwar Kameez combo has taken a variety of styles and fashions. There are a number of variations that have come about in both the Salwar as well as the Kameez and the micro trends and seasons continue to influence the choice of fabrics, cuts, detailing and embellishments on the Shalwar Kameez combination

Some of the popular variations in Shalwars include the Panjabi Salwar, the churidar and the most recent and most popular variation of the pyjama or the straight cut wide leg pants now worn by many women.

The Panjabi Salwar is a loose fitting trouser, usually cuffed at the bottom. It is most popular in Punjab, part of Jammu and in Kashmir as well as in Haryana. Slimmer fits are worn all over the country.

The Churidar is a slim cut trouser which is wide at the waist and tapers down the knee to closely fit the leg. It is usually much longer than the actual leg length and the extra fabric is worn gathered above the ankle. This is what gives the style it’s popular name Churi(Bangle) Dar(like), owing to the bangle like appearance of the gathers above the ankle.

The Pyjama has resurfaced in popular use in recent years. This is a simple style with wide legged drawstring pants whose girth may vary with trends and personal preference of the wearer.

 

The Kameez has seen an even greater variety of variations be it cut, length, fabric, print, sleeve and neck style or girth.

 Straight or A line Kameezes, also known as Kurtas as worn by women. One of the styles which has made a return almost a decade ago is the Anarkali. It consists of a long wide girth kurta with a voluminous hem, and may vary in length from a little above the ankle to floor length. It is usually made by stitching together cuts of fabric which are wide at the bottom and taper on top – these are known as kalis. The Kali style of cut results in a gentle flare in the garment and varying the number of kalis in the fabric lead to a variation in the hem width and flare.

Nowadays the more modernised versions of the kurta are popular in daily wear Shalwar Kameez combinations and the more traditional styles with some added micro trends tend to be the popular choice for festive wear and other celebratory occasions.

The modern versions of the Kurta may include shirt style collars, mandarin collars and in fact any style of collar or neck as may be in trend.

The fabrics also vary and you can get Shalwar kameezes in chiffon, chanderi, silk, rayon or cotton.

 

What is the difference between Salwar Kameez and Salwar Suits?

The Shalwar Kameez combination is popularly known as the Salwar Suit in India. Some people also associate with it as Punjabi suit because of the popularity of the style in Punjab. The most significant reason is the style of the salwar. The Punjabi style salwar which is still very popular with most Indian women wearing Shalwar Kameez is worn all over India by women as daily wear.

With the advent of other styles popularised by Bollywood actresses wearing Shalwar Kameez, such as churidars, Luckhnawi style pyjamas and even palazzos, the Punjabi style salwar is not as commonly worn. However, the style is what has given the ensemble its name ’Shalwar Suit’ which remains a cover term in popular parlance for any ensemble combining a kurta with drawstring style pants.

 

Which do you prefer to wear: saree or salwar?

While sarees are commonly worn by women all over India, women in the North and younger women in the South of India still choose to wear Shalwar Kameez or Salwar suits as casual and formal wear or even party attire.

 

Why do most Indian women prefer to wear salwar kameez?

This is hardly surprising as the ensemble allows the wearer much more comfort and freedom of movement without compromising on the grace of Indian ethnic aesthetic as the pants give more room for leg movements than sarees which are likely to ride up the leg with robust physical movement. Naturally for women who seek both comfort and modesty the Salwar suit is ideal especially in parts of the country where dresses that do not cover the legs are considered inappropriate wear for women.

A salwar allows women to undertake even vigorous movements such as running, riding a two-wheeler or even light sporty activities. Therefore, they are the prescribed uniform for adolescent girls in many schools which do subscribe to wearing western style skirts and tunics as school uniform.

 

Salwar Kameez: Indian Salwar Suits Casual & Party Wear Attire

The best thing about choosing this ensemble is that it is equally flattering whether it is worn as a sober uniform or if you wear Indian salwar suits as casual and party wear attire.

There is no limit to the cuts, length, fabrics, pattern or prints and when paired with the right dupatta and a flattering pair of juttis the Salwar suit graces the femininity of the wearer effortlessly.
