2. Dhoti Salwar

This kind of salwar looks like dhoti that was originally a traditional dress for males. In dhoti salwar, there are a lot of drapes in the front. These kinds of salwar are very loose and give you enough space to move your legs freely. The basic idea was to make the person wearing it, feel comfortable. There are cotton dhoti salwar for summer wear and silk ones for winters. Women can also wear woollen leggings inside these salwars in winters to protect themselves from the cold. Dhoti salwars are mostly used to make the Indo-western outfits, even in the fashion world since they give the traditional look to the outfit. If you wish to wear an Indo-western outfit, you can pair up your dhoti with a crop top, corset, a turban or any other kind of headband, statement necklace, tank tops and kurtas with front slit.

3. Trouser Salwar

Similar to the trousers, these salwars are trouser-like salwars for those women who dislike wearing leggings with their kameez or kurtas or those who find it hard to manage or carry a salwar. You should go for it if you are working and pair them up with heels or wedges. They also make your legs look slim and tall when paired yup with heels. They are usually worn with collar neck kurtas for a more formal and bold look.

6. Sharara Salwar

Sharara Salwars look a lot like Pallazzo pants and are worn a lot by women nowadays. They look a lot like long skirts when worn but abviously are not. They are usually worn with long kameez or kurtas. Earlier they used to be worn with short length kurtas but that is old fashion now. So, we would suggest that you don’t do that. They look fabulous on women with slim body but if you are broader, we would suggest you don’t wear them as the entire outfit would make you look a lot wider. If you still wish to wear them, you should go for vertical line pattern which will give the illusion of a slimmer body.
