Women’s Scottish attire is based on the clan tartans, either that of her birth clan or if married, that of her spouse’s clan if she so chooses. Traditionally, women and girls may not wear kilts but they wear ankle-length tartan skirts, along with a colour-coordinated bodysuit and vest.
A tartan earasaid, sash or tonnag (smaller shawl) may also be worn, usually pinned with a brooch, sometimes with a clan badge or other family or cultural design.
When did women start wearing kilts?
Historically, kilts were worn almost exclusively by men. Oftentimes, they were reserved for men in the military and worn as battle attire for their many benefits of agility and warmth. But, over time, as with any article of clothing or fashion style, the kilt has evolved in its wear and is now a daily article of clothing for many men, wearing them for everything from a quick trip into town to formal events.
More than that, kilts have stopped being an article of clothing reserved only for men. In recent times, women also have been able to enjoy the culturally rich experience and style of wearing kilts. Today, Kilt Femme are breaking into the mainstream, making ladies’ kilts every bit as popular and commonplace as men’s kilts. This is especially true when it comes to Highland kilts for women.
