Dress the Part


It's a common misconception that because Denmark doesn't have an official national costume, Denmark doesn't have festive folk-dresses at all. Nothing could be further from the truth. Different areas have wildly different clothes though, so in one area men wore huge baggy pants, in another women wore men's top-hats, in another people wore masks that covered their whole face when outside, and the list goes on.

One of the reasons why Denmark doesn't have one official national dress is because the Faroe Islands and Greenland were part of Denmark for so long, and having one standard dress would be like erasing theirs.

Second appearance of Sister Faroes, and first appearance of Sister Greenland! History was made today.

I'm amazed by how much culture you have for so few people. Greenland and Faroe Islands barely have more population than a couple of housing estates we have here, never mind a single district in our city.

Here's one of the Finnish national dresses (we have many local too!) http://www.kansallispuvut.fi/puvut/munsala_np.htm (think this is the most used when people talk about Finnish national dress)

Where I'm from we have these for men: http://www.kansallispuvut.fi/puvut/etelapohjanmaa_mp.htm
(yep, the knife belongs with the outfit)

I found the Ostrobothnian national costumes particularly sexy when the Dudesons wore the modernized versions to the president's independence day gala.

Norway` s budnad isn't just one national dress. Its supposed to show where you are from, which village, town or city. They are so different. Its your pride.

I have the trønder budnad btw :3

In Wales the women have the traditional red shawl, tall laced black hat, black and white apron, white shirt and long red skirt. The men have a rugby top.

Finland does not have one national costume either. There are dozens of different costumes depending on where you are from or whether you speak Finnish or Swedish or belong to the Sami people.
