Vyshyvanka (Ukrainian: ″Вишиванка″) is the colloquial name for the embroidered shirt in Ukrainian national costume.
I have bought this traditional shirt a few years ago and would be traveling to Kiev soon. The following questions arise:
- When is it appropriate to wear the traditional shirt? Only during special celebrations, or also while going out and about the city?
- Can you wear the shirt with regular pants such as jeans?
- Is it okay for a foreigner to wear one?
