The men mostly wear white shirt or juba and white mundu (dhoti) or a cotton "lungi" (a sarong like dress) with a white or coloured towel on top. The women dress up in the traditional unique attire called Set Mundu, which requires draping skillfully two pieces of long cloth on oneself, the dress being somewhat similar to a sari, worn over a blouse. The younger generation follows fashion and wear anything from jeans to salwar kameez.

It is during the festivals, especially Onam and Vishu, that one can see the typical Kerala dressing when the women in 'Set Saris' (white saris with borders of gold thread (Kasavu)) and blouse matching the sari border colour could be seen with men, who prefer white dhoti with 'kasavu' borders for such occasions. Young girls wear long skirts and blouses of various colours.
