A churidar is a long fitting pyjama worn by the North Indian groom. Churidars are usually fine muslins or cottons, white in color. The traditional churidar is tied with a nara at the waist. New variants come with an elastic, and do away with the hassle of tying the knot (of the nara, i.e)! What is special about them is that they are longer than the legs. Their extremes are crinkled and crumpled to fit. Creases thus developed resemble ‘churis’ or bangles, hence the name churidars. A churidar is a perfect accompaniment to long kurtas and sherwanis.
