                        COSTA RICAN CLOTHES
•   Costa Ricans wear modern, Western-style clothes. Clean, smooth unwrinkled clothing is very important to urban
    working-class people. Many will get low on food to buy stylish clothing. Jeans and tee-shirts are everyday wear for
    young people of all classes. Girls wear school dresses and uniforms.
•   Traditional women's clothes include a sheer, low-cut, frilly white blouse and a flowered, 100% cotton skirt. A fringed
    silk or cotton rebozo (shawl) is draped around the shoulders or over the head. Sometimes men wear clothes
    generally consist of dark trousers and a long-sleeved white shirt with a red knotted handkerchief near the neck and
    a sash that has lots of colers, around the waist
