Elegance of Salwar Suits

Usually for particular occasions people wear specific outfits. However there are certain outfits that go with any occasion. Salwar suits are such dress outfits that you can wear on every occasion. Moreover it is one of India’s ethnic apparel which has international appeal too. Earlier it used to be the exclusive dress of Punjabi or north Indian women but today it has become immensely popular in every state. It is the favourite dress of Indian women after the sari. Salwar suits are not only comfortable and relaxing but look elegant too. This is the reason why a majority of Indian women wear it. After globalization, it gained popularity in many countries around the world.

Although the way people wear this suit has not undergone any noticeable change; the designs and patterns have changed to a large extent. Prices have also changed significantly with the entry of multiple brands. Some suits are priced higher because of being designed by celebrity designers. There are also special salwar suits with exquisite designs meant to be worn during special occasions; however, they do cost significantly more.

A variety of suits are available depending on the occasion and purpose. There are office suits, party suits, wedding suits and festival suits etc. This has happened due to the demands of people who want to wear something exclusive for every occasion.

A salwar suits not only looks elegant and trendy but is also considered as sober. Prices of suits are determined by the brand which manufacturers these suits and the outfit type. Special designer suits cost more than normal suits.

The simple and traditional salwar suit underwent a tremendous change after fashion designers decided to come out with their range of designer suits. These suits have become very popular today. Some of the popular styles are:

  • Anarkali Style- This stylish and charming style was very popular during the reign of the Mughal emperors. It has resurfaced again after a long period. Stitched in frock style, this suit has various designs and patterns.
  • Short Kurta Style- The traditional long kurtas have been replaced by short length kurtas. It is perfect for women with slim figure.

Exotic Leather Fashion

  • Crocodile and Alligator Skins – If there ever was a standard for mens exotic leather fashion, crocodile and alligator set the standard. Inch by inch, a luxury grade alligator or crocodile skin scores the highest points on any fashion scale. Crocodile and alligator skin enhance the luxury appeal of goods like watch straps, wallcoverings, upholstery garments, belts, luggage – all with a high level of durability that lasts for decades.
  • Stingray Skin – Ultra-durable stingray leather has a look that is instantly recognizable by the leather connoisseur and equally attractive to those who haven’t seen it before. Stingray leather is very pliable and one of the strongest leathers in existence – having been used in ancient times for armor and sword grips. Stingray has a stippled texture that shines, making it ideal for flashy wallets, belts, boots, and wall coverings.
  • Snake and Python Skin – Snake skin embodies all qualities remarkably different from humans in almost every way and also have a strong male allure to them. Finely crafted jewelry, garments, boots, wallets made of python skin are long-lasting and attractive and can come in almost any color.
  • Ostrich Skin – Ostrich skin is a truly exotic leather with one of the most interesting feature – a soft oil finish (that gets softer over time) and a “pocked” surface. A high quality ostrich skin will have no holes in its pocks, and can be tanned in any color for well-suited luxury applications like car upholstery, wall coverings, and more.
  • Lizard Skin – While not suitable for garments, nothing emanates high-end style like a pool cue, upholstered car interiors, wall trims, and veneers. It’s also common to see Lizard coupled with Crocodile and/or Ostrich for fine footwear.

Bamboo Clothing

The garments are so eco friendly, and as the world are going green, or working to find ways to go back to nature, then this is certainly a step in the right direction. The manufacturers have made great strides in helping to save our planet. The fabric is so innovative in my humble opinion; I believe we should consider spreading manufacturing into more directions than for what it is being used for today, making sports wear.

The fabric is basically so wonderful, it should be used in making things such as, baby wear, bedding for babies, linens, they should consider making working clothes, like suits for women, just about anything you can conceive to do with fabric, then, these fabrics can do it.

The versatility of the bamboo fabric and the fact that it is light weight, breathable, chemical free, protects us from 99% of the sun’s rays, affordable, is the perfect reason we should really consider expanding the uses of this technology. The promotion of healthy living is essential, and as such there is no other way to go. Having experienced this product then I am sure the wider world will agree with me that this product cannot stop at performance apparel, but needs to venture out in the other direction.

In doing this, more jobs will be created, because of the expansion. The economy will improve. There will be a lot more spending potential in the market place, instead of what is happening now in the world where economies are shrinking. The prospect of more spending is such a huge bonus. Who knows, maybe, it would put some more thinking caps on in the technological arena, to consider using even more plants to make fabric instead of continuing to use manmade stuff? This is indeed harmful to the environment, anyway, so being innovative and thinking along the lines of going green will be a plus for us all.

We can do anything we set our minds to do. If we can conceive it, we can certainly achieve it. It took us years to get to this place of going back to nature. It took years for us to realize that what we need to do is not be selfish and consider someone other than ourselves, and, going the route of bamboo byproducts manufacturing is indeed going in the right direction. I hope we will certainly move speedily in continuing this revolution.
