      Avoid miniskirts and midriff-baring tops in Spain -- particularly in rural villages - as they are considered inappropriate. Longer skirts, dresses, trousers and blouses will serve you better if you wish to blend in. Tailored suits and blouses are appropriate for business. Save bathing suits and skimpier clothing for beach trips where even partial nudity may be acceptable.

    Teen Styles

      Teens and young adult Spaniards dress more casually than older generations, but designer fashion and quality is still important to them. Teenage girls wear trousers more often today than in the past and denim is growing in popularity for both male and female teens. Like adults in Spain, youths reserves sportswear for the playing field and beachwear for the beach.

    Traditional Costumes

      In sharp contrast to more conservative modern tastes, traditional Spanish costumes are bold in both color and style. Trajes de faraleas cover a woman completely but hug her figure before flaring out in colorful ruffles. Flower and comb hair ornaments and delicate shawls known as mantons complete the look for women. The "vaquero" style is traditional for men. High-waisted pants with decorated seams and short jackets create a romantic ensemble topped by the sombrero de alanche.
