Lehenga choli are the formal dress for women. It is a three piece set that includes the Lehenga (Skirt), the Choli (Blouse), and the Dupatta (large heavy Scarf). The skirt is constructed in various shapes and flairs. The blouse also is stitched in different styles and lengths. The scarf is generally heavily embroidered.
Salwar/Kameez is the traditional attire for Punjabi women and hence sometimes it is called a Punjabi suit. This attire also comes in a three piece set, the Salwar (Trouser), the Kameez (Shirt), and the Chunni (Scarf). The Anarkalis have the shirt that is flaired and looks like a western dress, so is called a fusion attire!
Sarees are the traditional attire for Indian women. This kind of attire is also a three piece set. It is a long piece of embroidered or embellished finished fabric that is wrapped around and tucked into a Petticoat (Skirt). The Blouse is stitched in different styles and lengths.
Men's formal wear include the Sherwani (A long coat top); the Jodhpuri Suit (Indian Tuxedo), a fusion Indo-Western suit, and the casual Kurta-Pajama (Shirt and Trousers). A Scarf is an accompaniment for Sherwani and Kurta-Pajama.
We also have matching costume jewelry and accessories. The jewelry includes a set (necklace, ear-rings, and tikka), just the ear-rings, and Bangles. Accessories include fancy clutch bags and juttis.
These three types of attire are also worn by women who are not brides. The abundance and intricacies of embellishments in the attire make it bridal wear.
