Nature of Kameez Daman
The first thing is that the length of the shirt changes the look of the dress. Apart from this, styles of shirts are also different. For instance, if you add a few pleats (Kaliyaan) to the top, it transforms into a frock-like look, it becomes a frock suit, or if the shirt is slightly longer, it takes on the form of an Anarkali. Therefore, the length and style of the shirt’s hem play a significant role.
The Type of The Bottom
The last most important part is related to the design of the shalwar. There have been numerous designs of shalwars invented so far, such as tight pajama, cigarette pajama, palazzo, patiala shalwar, and sharara. These designs have gained immense popularity among women worldwide.
