The sari is a long length of fabric (anywhere from four to nine feet) wrapped around the woman's body in one of several different ways. It originated in India, and is most commonly worn wrapped around the waist then draped over the shoulder, revealing the midriff. Underneath lies a petticoat and a short-torso top to cover the other breast and the other shoulder. Although that is the more popular way to wear a sari, there are dozens of other ways to wrap it around a woman's body. This is definitely the most versatile of lovely traditional dress.

The kimono is worn by both men and women in Japan. Literally, it means "wear-thing," showing it to be the main type of clothing in Japan. But that doesn't mean it isn't quite lovely on women. Kimono are worn like robes, left side over the right, and tied with an obi that ties in the back. They fall to the ankle, and have very wide sleeves. Sometimes, these sleeves even fall to the floor. Kimono are made in breathtaking designs. From flowers to landscapes to even images of animals, a kimono maker takes his work very seriously. Kimono are definitely one of the most beautiful traditional dress.

The hanbok is the traditional dress of Korea. Both men and women wear an outfit called "hanbok," but the two are slightly different. The woman's hanbok consists of a long-sleeved blouse-or-jacket-like-piece and a full skirt wrapped around the chest. There is a strip of fabric that trims the collar, and the cuffs of the sleeves are often of a different color. The hanbok is certainly one lovely traditional dress.

The fallera is a traditional dress originating in Spain. It is a very extravagant European dress, with much lace and embroidery. The skirts are made as wide as possible. They are made of a single color in the bodice, the skirt beneath all that lace and embroidery following that color. It is matched with a traditional Spanish hair style and sometimes a veil. If you like extravagance, the fallera is the choice for you.

The Native American jingle dress is probably the loudest of all the traditional outfits on this list. Covered in seven rows of cones made of bones or hooves set very close together, it jingles as the woman dances or even walks.The dress is then decorated more with paint, ribbons, and bead-work. It has matching leggings, moccasins, hair accessories, and a matching purse. If you love jingly-ness, this is the dress to choose!

The kanga is a very colorful piece of fabric worn by Swahili-speaking women (and sometimes men). Why Swahili-speaking, specifically? Because in one corner of the kanga is often a message written in Swahili. A kanga has an image in the center and a border surrounding that image. It is long enough to cover you from neck to knee, and as wide as a person's hands stretched all the way out. Simple and colorful, it is certainly one of the most beautiful traditional outfits.
