Ang cute naman! That means, in Tagalog, "How cute"! Sounds foreign, doesn't it? Well the clothing traditionally worn in the Philippines is foreign and different than what we are used to.
In the Philippines, the clothing that women wear is Baro’t Saya. A Baro’t Saya is a type of dress that the Filipino people would wear. In Tagalog, the words baro at saya meaning “blouse and skirt”. A baro is a short-sleeved collarless blouse. The blouse would be embroidered with different types of designs on them.
An unofficial symbol of the Philippines is the Barong Tagalog. It is embroidered formal garment which the men would wear. They would be worn not tucked, and is very light weighted. It is similar to a dress shirt. It would be worn for weddings and formal attire. The words, Barong Tagalog, means “Tagalog shirt”.
Women have been known to wear the greatly starched, butterfly-sleeved terno with a matching long skirt during occasions which formal wear was required.
