The Salwar suit consists of a long shirt or tunic called the Kameez, worn over a pant like clothing, called a Salwar, also spelled as Shalwar. The whole ensemble along with a long scarf like over-wear, called the dupatta, is known as Salwar Kameez. Shalwars are trousers which are atypically wide at the waist but which narrow to a cuffed bottom. They are held up by a drawstring or elastic belt, which causes them to become pleated around the waist. The pants can be wide and baggy, or they can be cut quite narrow, on the bias.
