Dressing in Spain
In spring and summer, men typically wear light cotton pants or bermuda shorts with cotton or polo shirts and sandals, dress shoes or sneakers. Teenage boys are keen on designer wear and appearance is very important to them. More mature Spanish men dress conservatively and generally with style.
Most traditional Spanish clothing is reserved for special events and celebrations. The most common pieces, still used today, include: the mantilla, the peineta, and the gilet. - The mantilla is a traditional Spanish veil piece that is often worn during religious celebrations such as Spanish weddings.
