Solution

In the context of the mentioned headlines in the question evidence that are found are described below:

The various sculptured figures show that people used to wear a simple dress. Men used two pieces of cloth; the upper garment, that was a shawl which was drawn over the left shoulder and under the right arm; the lower garment resembled a modem dhoti. The female dress did not differ much from that of the male. Women used a loin cloth bound by a girdle. Common fabrics were commonly used, perhaps wool was also used. Male and female both were fond of wearing ornaments. Gold, silver, copper, other metals, and precious stones were used for making various ornaments of different designs. Men and women used to wear necklaces, finger-rings, and armlets. Women decorated themselves with a head-dress, earrings, bangles, bracelets, girdles, and anklets.
