The Salwar (also pronounced as Shalwar) Kameez is a traditional outfit that originated in the Indian sub-continent. To be precise, it is also known as the Punjabi suit, as it is the traditional dress worn by Punjabi women. The outfit, primarily, consists of a pair of trousers and a tunic (kameez) and this ensemble is usually paired with a dupatta. The Shalwar Kameez can be worn by both men and women. However, with this particular outfit that women wear, there has been a lot of transformations and alterations of style over time. Today, women wear different variations of the traditional Salwar Kameez.
