Ireland. Irish traditional costume.

Irish folk costume - orange kilt, knee-length, long jacket, a shirt without a gate and a beret. The costume is almost lost. It is worn only musicians.

Irish traditional costumes make you think of Irish folk dancing. Female dancers wear a long sleeved dress, knee-hight white socks and black shoes. The colourful patterns on the dresses are based on Celtic designs.

Scotland. Scottish traditional costume.

Scottish Traditional costume. Probably the best known traditional costume in the UK is the Scottish kilt with its distinctive tartan pattern. Kilts were pleated woolen skirts, worn only by men, and fastened in front with a special pin. A goatskin bag called sporran was worn around the waist and a cloak was draped over one shoulder. Each clan or family had its own tartan design. The kilt is still worn on special occasions today.

One of the most famous national costumes of the world is a Scottish kilt.
