I admit, dressing up in the style of your country of origin does sound like a lame theme-party idea. Let’s face it, it’s 2014: people across the world come out of the womb wearing a pair of blue jeans. However, if you are looking to score the sweet style of your ancestors, let’s look at a few different ways to do it…
This beautiful textile is a hand-embroidered, ceremonial huipil blouse from Guatemala.
Classically ornamental matador jackets are still worn by Spanish bullfighters.

Even without the shamrocks, the ‘Aran’ woolen weave is so traditionally Irish.
This elegant Japanese silk wedding kimono is so vibrant and artistic.

A beautiful and embellished traditional Indian sari will drape just so.
