India is a land of colour and diverse cultures, so obvious in the varied dresses that adorn its people. Indian dressing styles are marked by many variations, both religious and regional with a wide choice of textures and styles. The many hued sari draped gracefully in different styles, brightly mirrored cholis, colorful lehangas and the traditional salwar-kameez have all fascinated the traveller to India. The traditional dress for girls in Rajasthan and Gujarat is the lehenga choli or ghagra choli. These cholis are brightly embroidered, waist-length bare-backed blouses.Young girls in south India wear a half saree, somewhat similar to a lehenga choli. The only difference is that the dupatta is wound across the waist and draped across the left shoulder like the saree pallu. popular, comfortable and convenient dress is the salwar kameez or churidar kurta. This was traditionally the dress worn in Punjab, but is now worn almost everywhere, particularly by girls. Western dressing styles are increasingly gaining popularity among the urban youth especially girls. Young girls wear skirts and dresses, particularly to schools. After adolescence, and almost certainly after marriage, girls are expected to wear traditional Indian clothing. This trend is changing with more females entering the urban work force, but this is confined to sections of society that are highly exposed to international lifestyles. Thus, clothing in India vary according to region, state and even to the lifestyle and the family environment they are brought up in.
