At the christian college I go to in Bangalore, the dress code for girls says ankles and chests must be covered. Most of the other girls in the group have picked up many of these Indian shirts which cost anywhere from 100-300 rupees on the street (like $2-$7), and I have perused a bit, but none of the clothing has truly made me want to own it, so I have held off. For the most part, I follow the dress code by draping a shawl over a modest shirt from the U.S. and wearing jeans or other pants. However, yesterday I came to school directly from wall climbing, and I was wearing a shirt, extremely loose exercise capris, and gym sneakers; trust me, I did not look cute, but still, one of the security guards dressed in his army green suit and beret stopped me and said I was not adhering to the university dress code (I guess because of the capris). Aw, man! I knew I was becoming a bit too lax in terms of my dressage. I really would like to find an Indian shirt that I like enough to wear back at home, but such are hard to come by. They are often boxy, hard to move around in, and of poor quality.
Here are some different saris; they come in silk, cotton, and all colors of the rainbow:
