English: Salwar kameez (also spelled shalwar kameez and shalwar qamiz) is a traditional dress 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). It is sometimes known as Punjabi suit due to its popularity in the Punjab region is due to the fact that the Turkic (Ghaznavids) of Khorasan ruling south-central asia at the time introduced the dress to the rest of Indian cultural regions of the Indian subcontinent. 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.
