If you have paid attention to the way of people dress in each country, you have realized that each place and each culture has a particular identity. It is true that some countries have similar way of dressing, others have a concept totally different.
For example, in Scotland, a country full of history, there is a traditional dress for women and men, but what catches the attention the most is the male traditional dress. It consists of a kilt, argyle jacket, a sporran, belt and buckle, kilt hose, ghillie brogues (traditional shoes), kilt pin and flashes. However, this garment is not strict at all, you may add any details or accessories.
The typical women’s garment consists of kilted skirt or tartan sash or shawl, a variation of this is a ladies great kilt and a blouse. Here you can see a highland tartan dress.
