Salwar kameez has emerged to be the most popular costume and of the pan-Indian variety in the history of the textiles of India. Though, later in origin from the sari, which traces its origin to the Vedic times, the salwar kameez has emerged as the comfortable, elegant and respectful apparel of the Indian wardrobe.

Essentially a medieval garment that contradicts the Hindu philosophy of wearing unstitched garments the salwar kameez in its original form was brought into the country by the Muslim rulers, from the year 750 A.D. salwar kameez was brought into India as a courtly garment from the central Asian invaders, and slowly became the popular garment of the people of the countryside with the spread of Islam. The men and women both wore different forms of what is today known as the salwar kameez. The royal men wore the long flowing shirt which ran below the knees, with a front open tied with laces, known as the Angarakha ( protection to the body), which was essentially a war costume. Below they wore the tight fitting bottoms known as the Churidaars In the court was worn the Sherwani which was modified form of the Angrakha. Later this was the costume patronized by the Rajputs and other forms of the Hindu royalty.

The women wore their costumes in three parts. The shirts were very small extending upto the abdomen, with a rich embroidery and Zardozi work that were first brought into the country. The bottoms were known as the Sharara, which were a loose flowing gown divided in between. The heads were always covered with the Dupatta, which was both a mark of respect and honor.

Like all garments have transformed with time, so has the salwar kameez. With its descent from the courtly to the everyday costume, it became more localized and the regional dress in the northern parts of the country , like in Punjab and Haryana. With the freedom movement in the country the salwar kameez acquired a more nationalistic and broader base often stretching to other parts of the country. Today the costume is synonymous with the national costume of the country along with the sari.

The forms of the salwar kameez have changed with the fashions of the times and they have been tried out with various traditional combinations like the Lacha, Sharara, etc. and more contemporary forms like the parallel trousers. Even with the changes in time it remains a costume that describes comfort and elegance.

This is a lemon yellow cotton salwar kameez with vertical embroidery in lemon yellow threads. The vertical embroidery on the kameez consists of large flowers and leaves entwined in a creeper pattern.

The salwar is plain and is accompanied by a double shade dupatta in white and lemon yellow. The dress is also accompanied by a lemon yellow cotton slip to be worn inside.

A very simple yet elegant dress that can be worn in all seasons.

This description by Bhanupriya Krutiventi.
