All You Need To Know About Indian Clothing


India is tradition and culture rich country. People here adore colorful clothing and accessories whenever possible. If you have ever visited India, you will notice that each state has its own type of costume. The variety in Indian clothing range is huge although Sari for Women and Shirt and Pant for men is common throughout the country.

Indian women wear sari on regular or casual wear but when it comes to grand occasions they wear ghaghra choli, which is a long skirt with a grand dupatta and designer blouse. A sari is a 6 meter cloth which is wrapped in a unique style to wear it and women look marvelous on saris. Indian clothes have seen many changes in the past few decades, people like western clothing more than Indian these days but that doesn’t mean Indian clothing is on verge of extinction.

Young girls and women of India love to wear salwaar kameez, which is a long t shirt fitted right for your size and a loose pajamas and are tightened only near the ankles. The pants are mostly two types pyjamas and chudidar, where the pants are much similar to the modern day leggings.

When we talk about men’s clothing, they normally wear tailored full/half shirt and straight fit pants. Though the men also wear Indian clothing but not in everyday use only during celebrations. In rural India you can still see men wearing turban, kurta and langoti but modern India in cities and town had left those wear back and moved n with comfortable shirts and pants. Even children are given first preference to comfort and then style or traditional clothings. It becomes more important to care for kids clothing as they have sensitive skin and tend to get rashes quite easily.

Make Your Child Wear Trendy Baby Clothes


Desi style is the trendiest of them all, every fashion statement changes in time but Desi stays forever. There was a time when parents made the kids wear only comfy clothes without even bothering anything about style or looks. They used to get 2 size bigger the clothes, so the clothes will fit the kid even if he grows older.

Things have changed a lot, parents want to buy trendy baby clothes for their children these days. People adore western clothes for their kids like trendy shaded jeans with a cool graffiti t shirt, it looks very cute on the kids. Along with the western clothes people have also adapted Desi style which includes Punjabi clothing  also. In kids Punjabi clothes one can buy an extra small sized kurti and pajama which is a traditional Punjabi style dressing.

The parents should prefer comfortable clothing above all, as children’s skin is sensitive and they can get rashes or cuts if they wear too glittery and fancy clothes. One thing parents can look for being trendy yet comfortable Punjabi clothes for the kids. You can also try a little turban for them but make sure you make them wear it only for a short while as the children may get annoyed with the additional weight on the head. You can always take few pictures and then remove it from the head.

If the child is attending a grand ceremony and it’s important to wear something not so comfortable for the kids, make sure to change the clothes after a while as the baby clothes you bought might not be easy on the skin and baby might get hurt.

You Know You're Over 40 When...

(Note: the situation I’m about to describe can also be applied to a Fleetwood Mac Rumours T-shirt in TopShop.)

I was 13 when Born In The USA came out. But – being 13 – I didn’t quite ‘get’ it. In 1984, I was listening to Wham! and Duran Duran, and I didn’t understand why a sweaty, shouty man in a bandana was dancing in the dark, let alone on fire. (Mind you, I didn’t really understand Duran Duran’s lyrics, either. But then, who did?)


No, Born In The USA only came to life for me three years later, when it became the soundtrack to a school exchange trip to Germany (turns out the Germans liked Bruce Springsteen, even if I didn’t).
