The Indian fashion houses have come up with formal, semi-formal designs and party wear for the salwar suit. Semi-formal are the ones that are generally designed in cotton and have little bit of embroidery over the shirt. These are the dresses that can be worn during day office parties or some small gatherings. These suits are paired with straight pants or salwar. The formal designs consist of modern cuts with less or embroidery over the shirt. The dress is stitched such that instead of wearing a trouser and a shirt you can wear this combo to your office and look very much professional.
