Origin, History & Styles of Salwar Kameez

The Salwar Kameez is believed to have originated in the Mughal era, where the outfit used to be a combination of a tunic and loose pants. One of the most popular styles of Salwar Kameez during that era was the Anarkali suit. It was considered to be one of the most opulent forms of garment in the market. The Anarkali suit is characterized by a long kurta that flares out from under the waistline. It had a lot of rich embroidery work and was always considered synonymous to richness and grandeur. Many Mughal courtesans and members of the Royal family used to wear Anarkali suits because of their strong Persian influence.
