Clothing means so many things to so many people all the way around the world. Whether it shows a persons’ culture and spirituality or it’s just a popular trend, you can learn so much from the clothes on someone’s back. In America, we don’t relate meaning really to what we wear; we base it more off of what we see everyone else wearing. Now that being said, we have times where do choose to wear specific clothing, like on holiday’s or when we go to certain events such as the theater, we usually tend to dress up. Travel to places like China and you will see similar clothing as ours here, seeing our trends and styles have been welcomed there. Go to Africa and you will see a whole new window of bright colors and intricate patterns, being worn in skirts, dresses, and head pieces. Many different types of clothing are worn for different traditional reasons, for example weddings. We choose a typical white dress, suit and tie; where as a traditional African wedding dress will be adorned in colors and patterns that represent where the bride is from. In India wedding attire consists of bold colors, often red, adorned with jewels and a bride covered in henna. In many locations it isn’t uncommon to see men wearing dress styled outfits, such as the dhoti in India or the kilt in Scotland. Wherever you may be, you will see clothing similar to what you wear as well as things that are very different. Look into those pieces of clothing and you’ll see that there’s more to a piece of cloth than what you can see.
