Traditional clothes are defined as the clothing worn by all members of a society, typically those that are part of or established by the country’s dominant cultural tradition. This means it is not limited to one particular culture, but can be found in many different cultures throughout the world.
In a multitude of cultures, different types of traditional clothing are worn by men and women. In the United States for example, the typical outfit in which a man is dressed consists of semi-formal or “business casual” clothes consisting of slacks with socks (usually no tie), dress shoes and an appropriate shirt that can be either long-sleeved or short-sleeved.
In the United States, a woman is typically dressed in semi-formal attire for work, which can consist of slacks (or skirts) with dress shoes and an appropriate shirt that can be either long-sleeved or short-sleeved. However, when it comes to dressing in a more formal way, then typically an outfit consisting of dress shoes and a skirt or slacks with either a blouse (long-sleeved) or top (short-sleeved).
In some cultures around the world, traditional clothing is even much different. For example, in parts of Asia such as China for example, traditional dress for men can consist of a shirt with loose trousers that are often held up by suspenders and sometimes even slippers. Women in China typically wear either a blouse or tunic (or just the top) over pants which may be made out of silk.
