What is a "salwar"?

A salwar is a pair of traditional loose-fitting pants worn in many parts of South and Central Asia, as well as the Middle East. It is paired with a long tunic top called a kameez or kurta and a scarf called a dupatta. Salwar is known for its comfortable and relaxed fit, making it a popular choice for everyday wear, especially in hot and humid climates. The pants feature a drawstring waist and narrow cuffs at the ankles, which can be plain or decorated with embroidery or small tassels. They are often made from lightweight fabrics such as cotton, silk, or chiffon and can come in a wide range of colors and patterns, from simple and plain to vibrant and ornate.
