Clothing and fashion are a direct result of our cultures and traditions. This implies that the way we dress is one of the areas that are influenced by our culture and tradition. However, there is also the chance to copy the way of dressing of other people. Many countries in the world have abandoned their traditional dressing for dressing in other cultures or at the least switch up between the two. Due to early civilization in the west and their successful colonization of several countries across the world, the Western culture has rubbed off on most countries of the world with coats seen as the highest level of official wear even in countries where coats were not a part of their history.
