Why women wear gulf style clothes
A fashion is let loose lately in Kerala villages. Most of the wives of Muslim gents earning from Gulf States wear black attire back at homeland in Kerala, especially in villages. Head top to feet end is black. In certain cases head is presented in white
by a towel. It forms just two pieces of costume. One loose stitched costume covers from neck-bottom to feet. Another piece of cloth covers bottom-neck to head-top, barring eyes, nose and either side of the mouth.
This costuming is just a copying from Gulf States. The motivation of attiring this costume is to publicize that their husbands are Gulf-earners and they are better off.
