The commonest type of dress worn by males in rural areas consists of cotton drawers called `chorno` and a short `kediyu` or `angarakhu` covering the upper part of the body. Most of the people especially agriculturists still continue to put on the typical head dress, thickly folded `phento` or turban.

Women in villages put on `chaniyo` the coloured petticoat often embroidered with `abhala` or glass pieces, a similarly embroidered blouse or bodice called as `choli` or `polku` along with `odhani`, a coloured piece of coarse cloth covering the body and the head. Elderly males of higher classes put on `dhoti` (waistcloth) and `kafani` or `peharan` (shirt).

The traditional dress worn by Gujarati women are Ghagra Choli or Lehenga Choli. Ghagra is a colorful ankle length skirt that covers the lower part of woman body. Ghagra is decked with dense embroidery works. Ghagra comes with bare-backed blouses or top that is worn on the upper part of the body. The blouse is extended to the waist. The whole dress is complemented with a Duppatta, a long cloth which is used as veil.
