Salwar Kameez is the national dress of Pakistan. With both men and women preferring to wear Pakistani Salwar Kameez it is very distinctive in style. Some say Pakistani Salwar Kameez is known as the 'Pathani Suit' because of the Salwar-Kameez donned Kaabli Pathans of Kabul who introduced this dress here. It consists of a long, loose fitting tunic with very baggy trousers. Dupatta, the essential part of Indian Salwar Kameez is not present in Pakistani Salwar Kameez.
The Pakistani Salwar Kameez is considered to be an amalgamation of dresses worn by the ancient Turks, Persians and Afghans. The male version of Pakistani Salwar Kameez is made of solid fabrics and in masculine colors. Often Collars and buttons accompany the male version of Pakistani Salwar Kameez. Men often wear an outer waistcoat over the Pakistani Salwar Kameez.
The Pakistani Salwar Kameez for females lacks the collar and buttons but stitched into are delicate patterns of flowers and local designs. These are made in feminine and pastel colors. Often a Pakistani Salwar Kameez may feature pretty laces or ribbons. In Pakistani Salwar Kameez, the Kameez is long down to the knees and is not varied. The outer waistcoat of the Pakistani Salwar Kameez is often experimented with new designs and patterns.
Salwar is normally loose pajama like trousers. The upper portion of the Pakistani Salwar is wide spread. And the bottom portion of the Pakistani Salwar is narrow. Salwar has wide spread waist band or known as belt with gathered pleats. Gather pleats give more space and extra comfort and good for winter season. Salwar of Pakistani Salwar Kameez is normally loose Salwar at hip area like a baggy pant.
