Indian woman’s diverse clothing and fashion on the streets and roads of India in the years 2007-2012.
As the pictures show, the scale is from one side to another, and these photographs definitely don’t have it all, they are just giving you some kind of idea, since for example, in every Indian state every woman has the state’s own unique way to tie her sari.
Somewhere in India sari is in turn replaced with a long skirt and blouse and in Goa Catholic women wear mostly dresses. Whereas in Karnataka some women wear clothing that reveals the back and shoulders, which elsewhere in India is covered with a dupatta.
And although in big cities salvar kameez is sometimes changed with jeans or shorts and a t-shirt, people are still not much aware of this in the remote villages of India, where many still hide themselves behind the scarf in order to show respect for an older man, or as a learned habit it has been just for self-defence during many generations.

And if you feel you can’t find anything to wear from the shops,
the key for your problem may well be found from India, as I myself have noticed.
