If you’ve ever wondered what Filipina women wore in the past, the answer is pretty simple. The barong tagalog is the Filipino equivalent of a mini dress, but with longer sleeves. It combines the beauty and craftsmanship of Filipino textiles with western fabrics like polyester. A pair of dress shoes and black trousers completes the look. The Camisa is another Filipino traditional clothing staple, but it was heavily influenced by Spanish colonization.
Before Spanish colonization, Filipino women wore unstitched cloth wrap-around skirts called tapis. These garments served as a practical weather protection and are still worn as a cultural outfit in northern Luzon. Similar skirt-like garments are known as patadyong and malong. Maria Clara, the heroine of the Jose Rizal novel Noli Me Tangere, wore a version of this style.
The baro’t saya, or “shirt and skirt,” was a traditional Filipiniana outfit that was worn by women during the 1800s. The baro’t saya was made of pineapple fibre, and featured a trailing skirt and shawl collar. During the Spanish colonization, the baro’t saya became a cherished symbol of Filipino traditional clothing and was worn for special occasions.
In the early 1900s, a Filipiniana version of the terno made the rounds as Philippine fashion. The Serpentina dress was narrow in the top and generously wide at the bottom, and lined with a stiff cloth made from abaca fibre. Because the bottom part was separate from the top, many historians were able to recognize this unique Filipiniana-style dress.
