A churidar kameez is open to plenty of experimentation. Leggings, churidars, pajamas,patialas, bell bottoms, shararas, flared pants and parallel pants all can be worn with a kurta. The kurta length can also be varied according to individual style. Short or long, a fitted kurta looks good either way. In fact, short kurtas with jeans have been a staple of Indian college women for quite sometime now. another recent player in this field is the dress kurta which is a short kurta, paired with leggings or churidar and worn without a dupatta. Quite an Indo-Western combination!
