Shalwar kameez   also salwar kameez  and less commmonly shalwar qameez   is a traditional combination dress worn by women, and in some regions by men, in South Asia ,   as well as Central Asia. Shalwars are trousers which are atypically wide at the waist but which narrow to a cuffed bottom. They are held up by a drawstring or elastic belt, which causes them to become pleated around the waist. The kameez is a long shirt or tunic. The kameez is usually cut straight and flat; older kameez use traditional cuts; modern kameez are more likely to have European-inspired set-in sleeves. The kameez may have a European-style collar, a Mandarin-collar, or it may be collarless; in the latter case, its design as a women's garment is similar to a kurta. The shalwar and kameez were introduced into South Asia after the arrival of Muslims in the north in the 13th century: at first worn by Muslim women, their use gradually spread, making them a regional style,    especially in the historical Punjab region. It is also widely worn by men in Afghanistan,  and by women, and some men, in the Punjab region of India, from which it has been adopted by women throughout India,  and more generally in South Asia. When women wear the shalwar-kameez in some regions, they usually wear a long scarf or shawl called a dupatta around the head or neck. Plate
