After globalisation, our fashion sense also showed rapid progression due to the influence of the world wide web. We modernised traditional sarees, Kurtis, pyjamas and other traditional Indian clothing into something or perhaps everything western.
However, over the due course of time, the revival of old traditional clothing is highly noticeable.
We have enlisted 5 of the top most traditional clothing we have observed being snapped back in trend:
The native Indian cloth item which revolutionised during the Indian colonial period is back in trend. Being a very versatile and adaptable fabric, it is being used as the uniform material for certain schools and colleges.
Sarees, Kurtis, Salwar, Shirts and pants are the wide variety of clothing items that are available in Khadi.
In spite of being a little tough on the money pocket, its durability and versatility is remarkable enough to bring it back in trend.
2) Salwar Kameez
Mostly popular in the northern region, it dropped out of trend when jeans and capris came in style and took over a large bourgeoise society. Salwar kameez was mostly forcefully worn by high school girls as their uniform.
