A common garb that many poor men and women wore was the leine. A leine is a knee-length shirt typically knitted from wool. Men would wear just the leine while women wore it underneath a dress. Now, you can take a leine and wear it as a simple sweater or even as a sweater dress. You can easily accessorize it with jewelry, a handbag, or even a cute hat.
Most of us know about the kilt. It is that one piece of clothing that is engraved in our memories thanks to pop culture. But the kilt is a major piece in traditional Irish and Celtic clothing. And luckily, it is super easy to pair it with clothing of the contemporary world. You can combine it with a cute crop top or blouse along with your favorite loafers. You can even mix around with different prints.
The Celtics and Irish love their jewelry. Many traditional dresses were adorned with brooches like the tara brooch. This brooch is made from silver and has a design on the front and back. Women would attach them on dresses. The best thing about accessories is that they never go out of style! So you can take your antique tara brooch and attach it to anything you wear!
The Celtics were known for the dazzling colors. They loved reds, greens, blues, and yellows. In fact, England banned saffron dresses to go against the Celtics.

Pull out your boldest colors and parade them around.
