اردو: شلوار قمیض
English: Shalwar kameez (also spelled salwar kameez and shalwar qamiz) is a generic term to cover different styles of dress traditionally worn by both men and women in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Kashmir (national dress), Northern Republic of India, and the People's Republic of Bangladesh (Islamic culture). One such version is known as Punjabi suit due to the Turkic (Ghaznavids) of Khorasan ruling south-central asia introducing their dress which gave rise to the Punjabi version of the shalwar kameez in the Punjab region. Shalwar are loose pajama-like trousers. The legs are wide at the top, and narrow at the ankle. The kameez is a long shirt or tunic, often with a western-style collar; however, for female apparel, the term is now loosely applied to collarless or Mandarin collared kurtas.
