Things I love in the month of February # 25 – Traditional dress

Paula has asked us to share something we love, for each day of the month of February.

For my # 25 love, I choose;

Shalwar kameez, our traditional dress in Pakistan.

Whenever I visited the USA, I dressed in jeans so that I don’t stand out like a sore thumb. Besides, jeans are very practical to wear and are suitable for all weather conditions.

But in my own country, I prefer shalwar kameez as it is best suited to our culture and weather conditions. It’s also, to my mind, a very graceful dress that hides a multitude of body issues. It’s comfortable and roomy so in summers one is at ease. It requires ironing every time one wears it as we use mostly cotton or silk fabric to make them.

    1. Oh yes, I have lots of them as they come as a complete ensemble. Though we can mix and match as well. I’ve seen lot of visitors from other countries wearing this dress. It suits our climate too.

      1. Wonderful! Actually I would say what I wear every day is sort of similar, except for the flowing scarf. I wear loose fitting black stretchy pants and long sleeved long tunic tops every day. I did away with jeans years ago. 🙂

    1. I haven’t got the proper way to carry a sari. My mom, from what I remember of her, used to wear them often. It’s still a formal wear here. Shalwar kameez is out every day attire. And yes it’s comfortable and pretty too.
