Salwar is a loose pant with a cuff at the ankle worn beneath a kurta (or a long tunic). Churidar is a tighter pant making chudies (wrinkles that look like bangles) from some point below the knee to the ankle.
The salwar kameez is not unique to India, it is the basic apparel for both men and women of Afghanistan and Pakistan. The sherwani is the salwar kameez suit for men in India and Bangladesh, while the salwar kameez is worn here by mostly women. Hailing from different regions of South East Asia, there are a dozen varied styles of salwars and churidars in existence today.
Patiala Salwar: The patiala salwar originates from Punjab. It is a flared salwar with many fine pleats on both legs. It is worn there both traditionally by older women, and in modern fashion enhanced designs by younger women.
Dhoti Salwar: Dhoti salwar is a newer, and more innovative version of the Patiala salwar. The dhoti salwar has found its audience amongst younger women who subscribe to fashionable and stylish garments. Some young ladies pair the dhoti salwar with tops and blouses instead of kurtas. The look is fairly comfy and trendy. Dhoti pants have begun to edge their way into unisex fashion trends, with fashion forward metrosexual men slowly inculcation one here and there into their wardrobe.
Anarkali Churidar: The anarkali churidar is a unique churidar made in net, chiffon or georgette and is quite the in vogue garment these days.
Palazzo Pants: Palazzo pants are one of the gateways to the Indo-Western garment fusion themes.
Harem Pants: Harem pants are picked from an Arabic design and fused into a modern ethnic or Indo-Western clothing item.
