There is no official national costume in Sri Lanka. But the most popular items are sari for women and sarong for men. The traditions in men’s clothing are simpler and clearer – men of any age wear sarongs or trousers. It is a little bit more complicated with women. Their national costumes depend on the age, marital status and the event. Mostly women use sari or half sari. But there are different regional peculiarities.
People use various types of clothes for various functions. For instance, wear white clothes for religious function. The Tamil, Muslims and Christian have peculiar costumes for different occasion.
