Clothing For Men: Mundu - A White Piece of Cloth with Golden Jerried Border
Clothing For Women: Saree and Blouse
The main dress worn by the people of Kerala is mainly traditional in nature though the costumes are to a large extent guided by the geographical conditions of the region.
The traditional dress forms are the `Mundu and Neriathu` (a white piece of cloth with golden zari border symbolising royalty) for men; and sari` (a 5-6 metres long piece of cloth embroidered with golden border) with jacket for women. With the changing trends in fashion and designing, the dress codes have changed. A multitude of colours and designs are available today. Men and women today are clad in a variety of dresses. The people have now taken to the northern style of dressing up though the western dresses have also found a lot of acceptance among the masses.
