Fashion trends may be constantly changing, but there are some traditional garments that stand the test of time. These pieces of clothing connect each generation to the next, bringing customs and cultures together.
Fashion doesn't just help you look good. It allows you to express yourself, connect to your roots, and reveal parts of your history.
During a trip to Vienna, blogger Ala Osmond noticed a few traditional garments that caught her eye in a store window. "It made me think that it was incredible that people still wear traditional dress today," she told A Plus.
This inspired her to put together a blog post featuring various traditional clothing pieces for travel site, Exeter International.
"Like food, fashion binds us together," it says on the blog. "And for those who love to travel, they'll likely see a lot of both. For wherever you are in the world, there will be defining and distinctive tastes (from what people eat to what people wear) and that's the true flavor of travel. Additionally, the way that people dress can reveal a lot about their history and often comes from practical influences or occupational necessity, so 'fashion' as a whole should never be overlooked in our cultural education."
