During the last couple of years, vyshyvanka in Ukraine has become apparently fashionable. You can meet people wearing clothes with ethnic elements not only on the Independence Day or other national holidays; some put on embroidered shirts for their birthdays, weddings, and the bravest ones even wear them as daily outfits.

Here are five handy ideas of how to wear Ukrainian traditional embroidered shirt.

  1. Wear it with jeans. Comfortable choice for an evening walk
