A sari or saree is a female garment in the Indian Subcontinent. A sari is a strip of unstitched cloth, ranging from four to six meters in length in various fabrics (materials) that is draped over the body in various styles. The most common style is for the sari to be wrapped around the waist, with one end then draped over the shoulder baring the midriff. The sari is usually worn over a petticoat (under skirt) with a blouse known as a choli or ravika forming the upper garment. The choli has short sleeves and 15 to 16 inches in length. Cholis may be "backless" or of a halter neck style. These are usually more dressy with a lot of embellishments such as mirrors or embroidery and may be worn on special occasions.

SHALWAR KAMEEZ/LADIES SUITS
Salwar kameez (also spelled shalwar kameez and also known as shalwar suit) is the national dress of India and Pakistan. It is also the traditional dress worn by both women and men in South and Central part of Asia. It is widely believe that Shalwar Kameez was originated from Afghanistan and was spread out in in neighboring countries especially in India and Pakistan. Salwar or shalwar are loose pajama -like trousers. The legs are wide at the top, and narrow at the ankle. The kameez is a long shirt or tunic. The side seams (known as the chaak), left open below the waist-line, give the wearer greater freedom of movement. When women wear the salwar kameez, they usually wear a long scarf or shawl called a dupatta around the head or neck. For Sikh ,hindus and muslims women (especially those from India and Pakistan, where the salwar kameez is most popular), the dupatta is useful when the head must be covered, as in a Gurdwaras, Temples and mosques. Dupatta can be used as fashion accessory.
A Lehenga is a dress worn with a choli or medium sized top in length upto the waist, also called a ghagra or lehnga. While women of the Gujarat and Rajasthan provinces of India usually represent the outfit for foreigners, the lehenga is native to various parts of India. Based on what part of India one is referring to, the lehenga is worn in different styles, made of different fabrics and includes unique patterns. The lehenga of Rajasthan and Gujarat is known for its bandhni work which is a technique in tie-dye mastered by Hindu women of the region.
