These are traditional Costa Rican dresses. The most popular colors for dresses are red, blue, and yellow. Typically, they have large ruffles coming off of the shoulder.
Ankle-length skirts are also traditional in Costa Rica. Usually, a woman will wear a white shirt with the skirt, as seen in the picture. Traditional clothing for men includes a plain shirt and pants. Typically, both are white so that the man can stay cool in the heat. Both men and women wear a red cummerbund. A cummerbund is a bright red cloth that is tied around the waist.
