Salwar Kameez is a traditional dress used by various people of South–Central Asia. It is a very popular outfit among Indian women and it is also the national dress for both men and women.
Salwar Kameez is a combination of three pieces-Salwar, Kameez and Dupatta. A salwar resembles a loose pyjama and it is drawn tightly at the waist and it tapers at the ankles whereas a kameez forms the upper part of the dress and it is worn above the salwar and it is of knee-length. Some women even use a long scraf with salwar kameez and this scarf is called a Dupatta.
A dupatta is generally used around the neck or the head. Some women use dupatta as a stylish accessory and some women use it to cover their head in the presence of elders or while visiting temples.
