When selecting a designer salwar kameez, keep the occasion in mind. If you want to use it for daily wear, comfort should be your prime consideration. The material should be low- maintenance, light and airy. Cotton and linen could be the best materials for a tropical climate like ours. Blended fabrics like viscose can also prove easy and comfortable. If a resident of north India, opt for woolens like pashmina salwars for the winter. For party wear and weddings, you can opt to look dressy in fabrics like net, crepe, silks, chiffons or georgettes.
Many find it difficult to match their salwar kameez with the right accessories and jewellery. It is not difficult, though. Use coloured gems and jewellery in keeping with the shades of your salwar kameez. If you have a highly-embellished outfit, avoid too much bling. Settle for a staid chain, and plain bangles in the same shade. . If you are wearing an ankle- length anarkali settle for a pair of stilettos to add extra dimension to your persona.
