There is one more Indian garment that I like to wear so very much. It is the Patiala pants. I like the way they look - so cool - and they are the most comfortable thing to have on during hot summer days. Originally the pants were worn by the maharajahs of Patiala (since the name). But of course, women just couldn't miss the opportunity to add this wonderful garment into their own wardrobe. These pants are all about pleats which are stitched in such a way that create a beautiful draping effect. Traditionally they are worn with a short tunic (kurta) that have slits on the both sides, this design allows to see the beauty of the pants. But here I am wearing my red Patiala pants with a Western style blouse which I last wore combined with skinny jeans (here).
The bead necklaces are the symbol of marriage here in Nepal. I have a dozen of them as every year I get a few as a gift from other women during the local Woman's day Teej. Red and green is the favourite combination of colours for Nepalese women.
Will show one more Patiala pants that I have. These are the festive variant. When I saw them in the window I fall in love instantly. They are very voluminous and embellished with embroidery and beads. The photos are from 2010 when I bought this set.
Have a nice day!
