The mantilla, peineta, and gilet are examples of traditional Spanish apparel. These outfits are worn by people at celebratory occasions including weddings, parades, and local festivals.
Women use a particular style of veil at weddings called a mantilla. Typically, a soft silk or lace scarf is draped over the shoulders or the head. A peineta, a sizable comb, is paired with the mantilla and serves to secure it. A peineta is an ornament that frequently has a tortoiseshell colour.
A gilet is similar to a vest-like, sleeveless jacket that is often worn as part of a complete ensemble. Gilets were utilised as dress bodices in the 19th century. A gilet is now referred to as a chaleco in Spain.
Other traditional Spanish clothing comes in a wide variety. Bullfighter attire is flashy and ornamental, and it originated with Andalusian clothes in the 18th century. Traje de luces, or “suits of lights,” is how Spaniards refer to these elaborately embroidered and lavishly decorated coats. Additionally, performers still wear flamenco tuxedos and gowns today.
