Highland Dress is the traditional attire of Scotland. The most distinctive feature of Highland Dress is the tartan. A tartan is a pattern of criss-crossed lines of color. Over the centuries, Scottish Clans adopted standard patterns for clan members. These tartans are important symbols of the clan.
Scottish men wear kilts, a knee length garment that wraps around the wearer. In addition to the kilt, men wear a sporran (a small purse worn around the waist), a sgian dubh (a dagger worn on the calf), and ghillies (thick soled shoes with long laces).
Scottish women wear tartans, but in a skirts or arisaid (a full length tartan dress or covering over a white dress). Women also where gillies, but theirs have thinner soles better for dancing.
