Still twenty-thirty years ago in practical books with clever names «Councils for young mistresses» or "Housekeeping" it was possible to meet sayings of masters of the Soviet fashion how by повязывания шарфика to make a daily dress evening. Such experts from a "low" fashion meet and now. Our women more and more in jeans - conveniently Also go, or in nonspottable skirts - is practical. And, often looking from a back on a youth flock, plainly also you will not disassemble, who there the boy, and who - the girl. Here and we live. A full unisex. I not the grumbler, but sometimes so would be desirable to please an eye многоцветьем ancient national suits. We take, for example, the Bulgarian dress. In cities preferred secular style, a national Bulgarian dress - destiny of inhabitants of a countryside. But also here what variety! Photos.
Women at week-days usually carried сукман - a long woollen sundress of dark colour, in other areas of the country such sundress was replaced with a certain similarity of a baby's undershirt. The skirt, edges of sleeves and gate was decorated in these clothes basically. On an ornament nobody regretted time and forces is was some kind of the card of the woman. An embroidery all went gold threads, a twisted lace, tapestry material slices - in a course.
Over a skirt the apron was put on. At week-days it protected the dress from a dirt, and in celebratory it changed for happier, ornated colleague. But, without dependence from an occasion, the apron was bright and favourably shaded a dark skirt.
Under a sundress of the woman put on long white туникоподобную a shirt.
Finished the dress a woven belt with a heavy silver buckle. By the form belts mercantile grooms quite could define well-being of a family of the girl.
But what woman can do without ornaments? In a daily life it there was beads - the balls strung on a thread from exaggerated glass of different colours, and here on holidays rings, bracelets, «прочелницы» - an ornament for hair or a headdress with suspension brackets hanging down on a forehead were put on. On a ring and a kind of the Bulgarian ornaments it is possible to tell definitely, that considerable influence on a local fashion the east - recognised necklaces from coins with Arabian вязью and patterns has rendered, suspension brackets, long earrings cast memoirs on fairy tales «One thousand and one night».
Footwear and men and women carried from сыромятной skin, feet put on bright woollen stockings.
As well as in many other things the countries, the custom demanded from the woman a headdress - hair should be covered. Usually it was a scarf which fastened on a cinciput, and on the left side inserted a natural flower - after all the woman should be beautiful not only on holidays!
Men, of course, put on more modestly, not so is bright. Cloth trousers, a waistcoat were usual clothes - here the length differed depending on residing area - a belt and a shirt with embroidered with a collar and edges of sleeves. The buckle on a belt was a unique ornament. But if women preferred a vegetative ornament on buckles of man's belts it was possible to see even dragons.
Certainly, now it was possible to describe far not all variety of the Bulgarian national suit, after all in each area of the country, in each village there were features - colour, length, a style.
Now, of course, almost all is forgotten, and only in days of national holidays, moreover from old museum photos girls in bright and elegant national suits smile to us.
