Odd Fashioned - Articles Surfing

Clothes can tell what is inside a person's head; it depicts the personality and character of a person. There was a time when people wore animal skin and covered their bodies with leaves and god knows what. Clothing trends have experienced centuries of revolutions. The general trend that the world experiences right now is uncomplicated. The essence is the same throughout whether you look eastward or westward. The same old pants, the same old shirts and the same old frocks and gowns. The same thing repeated over and over again with new styles.

This repetitive chain is broken away by a distinguished culture. African, Pakistani, Indian and a few others stand as odd ones out. People wear different kinds of clothes and they just don't wear it to become distinguished, they have certain cultures and trends because of which they have to wear these kinds of clothes. The fact is that there are people who have mixed the clothing of different cultures and made them into one. You can see people in the eastern countries wearing all kinds of odd dresses. They have long gowns that they swathe themselves into and there are people now who have started wearing long shirts called kurtas over a pair of jeans. And then there are people you can see wearing turbans and head cover with their clothes instead of caps. They give you an impression of people living in deserts.

These dresses are called shalwar and kameez. They are similar for ladies and gents. When they have to attend weddings and certain traditional ceremonies they wear heavily laden dresses. These dresses are called ghagara choli. They are decorated with beads, laces, pearls and what not. And they are very attractive. They have a shirt and a long skirt with it. They even take a long decorated piece of cloth along with it and that is known as a dupatta.

The Asians are on their way towards dominating the fashion industry and they are succeeding in making their dresses universally known. What ever they wear appears to be odd but it is not odd in a bad way in fact these dresses are now even attracting the fashion designers from all over the world.
