A tunic in India is identified with the name of a Kameez. It is usually cut in a straight line. Contemporary Kameez is more likely to have a set in sleeves which have been inspired from western tunics. The designer's taste along with the requirements of a wearer is exhibited in the silhouette of the d colletage and the embellishments on the Kameez. A recent adaptation of the feminine Kameez can be a little less over the edge than conventional versions. The Kameez may well be scored with a plunging neckline, sewn in sheer textile, or may be decorated with different embellishments. The Kameez side line of stitching may possibly be divided up to the thigh length or even sometimes the waistline. It could be paired with the Salwar, leggings or a pair of jeans.
In India, the article of clothing in the beginning was popular in the North, but eventually it emerged as a convenient substitute to a sari in South. It is believed that this attire suits every body type. By changing the material of cloth, its colour and the work and embroidery done on it one can make it suitable to wear in all climate types.
