In Europe, it tends to be used as part of the male outfit and is even considered elegant and even male. Although this clothing is designed exclusively for women in Latin America, it tends to be worn as part of men’s outfit in Europe and is even considered elegant and even masculine. Oddly enough, this tradition began in the 16th century in Scotland, where due to the country’s climatic conditions, men who felt comfortable and had more freedom in their movements wore a long tunic called “kilt”.
The accessory was then modernized in the form of a skirt. These skirts are made of 7 or 8 meters of wool, consist of several folds and are used rolled around the waist to the thighs. The fabric is usually embossed with multi-colored paintings, and although the color was originally determined by the region in which they were made, the types of “kilt” are currently assigned to different families for commercial reasons.
Scotland Traditional kilt
Despite its historical heritage, skirts were banned in England and Scotland in 1788 because they were seen as a sign of rebellion. However, their use prevailed and is still in force as a typical piece of clothing in Scotland. Although you don’t believe it, the right way to use the traditional “kilt” is without underwear, as this garment is made of thick woolen cloth and provides the necessary warmth, protection, and comfort.
There was no need to put anything underneath and was adopted as usual over the years. Although a real Scot shouldn’t wear it, nowadays it is allowed to wear it with underwear, because with the development of time, the variations of the climate, the humidity and even for hygienic reasons its use has been adapted to the new generations. However, this decision is at the discretion of the user.
