Most Russians pay attention to clothing. In Russia, married women must wear headscarves with the color of white. Unmarried girls are not wearing a headscarf, but often wear a hat. In the city, Russians currently wear a suit or skirt, and Russian women often have to wear a dress.
When people go to visit Russia, taking off their coat, gloves, and hats immediately is a courtesy.
The typical Russian national costume is a long-sleeved shirt with embroidered things on the outside for men. The shirt is generally made of linen cloth and white cotton, and it will also be made of colorful cloth.
In the cold season, people generally wear a thick woolen coat or fur coat, wear a hat, and shelved boots. Women's clothing is usually a long shirt with linen shoulder pads.
In the northern and central regions of Russia, married woman have to wear a sleeveless shirt called a "Sarah Fang" while in the southern region, women wear a hand-made wool skirt with a checkered pattern.
