WHAT ARE THE MAIN INDIAN OUTFIT TERMINOLOGIES?
Anarkali - an anarkali salwar suit is a form of traditional clothing, primarily consisting of three pieces: a kurta, a pant (could be a churidar or sharara) and a dupatta (shawl). It's name is derived from Anarkali, who was a courtesan in the court of Mughal emperor Akbar! (interesting little fact).
Lehenga- the lehenga choli, also known as lehenga or lehnga, is a three-piece attire consisting of the lehenga, a long indian skirt, blouse and dupatta (shawl). This lehenga is secured at the waist with the mid-riff left bare usually (however lots of people choose to customise the lehenga to show as little of the mid-riff as possible - it's up to you!). It is generally embroidered, printed or embellished in some way. The blouse is also referred to as a 'choli'. When you wear the dupatta (shawl), sometimes people use this to cover the mid-riff and head depending on the occasion. The lehenga choli became popular as an outfit mainly in North India, during the 10th century.
Kurta - the kurta is more widely known in western culture. It is a loose collarless shirt woen by people usually with a salwar, churidars, or pjyama (pants). It sort of looks like a tunic shirt! Sometimes people say kurti or kurta. What does this mean? Generally the difference is the length. Kurta are normally long, up to the knee or calf. Kurti, is shorter and goes to the waist or hip length.
Saree - saree or 'sari' as sometimes it's spelt, is often a drape varying from 4.5m - 8m in length. It's typically wrapped around the waist, with one end draped over the shoulder, baring the mid-riff. There are lots of styles of sarees and it's generally worn with a blouse (choli). Sometimes a saree (if see-through) is worn with a petticoat (thin skirt underneath that matches the colour of the saree or is subtle/cannot be seen). This piece is definitely considered a cultural icon when people think of indian wear!
