A suit is a three-piece outfit consisting of a kameez, salwar and a dupatta. Traditionally a kameez is a long sleeved, knee length flowing kurta. It has side seams that are left open below the naval. It is also known as a tunic. Salwar is a garment in which legs are wide at the top and narrow at the bottom. The legs are pleated at the waist in to a waistband. A drawstring or an elastic belt is used to fasten it around the waist. It is very comfortable to wear giving enough room for leg movement. Dupatta also known as an odhani is a long scarf or shawl generally worn around the neck or over the head. It is also worn across both shoulders. A salwar, kameez looks incomplete without it.
