Salwar Types

Some of you might be wondering what is the difference between the salwar kameez, the kurta, the kurti, shalwar kaameez, shalwar quameez and the answer is they are all referring to the same kind of dress- a long tunic top with pants. Depending on what region you are from, you may call it differently but it means the same thing. Salwars are loose pajama-like trousers. The legs are wide at the top, and narrow at the ankle so it can fit any size. The kameez is a long shirt or tunic with different collar styles.  The side seams are usually left open below the waist-line and give the wearer freedom of movement. Usually, a salwar kameez is three pieces– the salwar (bottom), kameez (tunic), and a shawl.
