The Patiala salwar is one of the oldest and most traditional clothes from Punjab. Till date, it is one of the most commonly worn garments in Punjab villages, and is usually paired with short kameez or kurtas to create typical Punjabi Patiala suits. However, in recent years, Patiala salwar suits have become extremely trendy and have therefore become popular not just in Punjab but across India. Much of the credit for the popularization of this garment goes to Bollywood movies like Jab We Met and Bunty aur Babli wherein stylish and colorful Punjabi suits were prominently featured.
The beauty of the Patiala salwar kameez lies in the distinctive look of the pants, which are made of several voluminous pleats that are gathered together at the ankles. The full and pleated pants are prominently displayed by pairing them up with kameez with shorter lengths, typically not reaching beyond the knees at the most. These types of Punjabi suits are completed with the addition of a long, flowing Dupatta, which is typically draped across the upper torso, around the shoulders and sometimes over the head. The kameez can be either well-fitted or loose, depending on the preference of the wearer, and may come with varying sleeve lengths and necklines. Many women are also choosing to pair up the Patiala pants with long shirts, tunics or kurtis, in order to create a funky and appealing indo western look.
