Filipino Dress

filipino dressThere are many dresses that the Filipinos consider their national dress. However, only one Filipino dress really stands out. This Filipino dress is the terno. The word terno is from the Spanish word meaning “to match.” The terno matches a blouse and skirt made of the same fabric to form a one piece dress.

The main focal point of the terno are the sleeves. The terno’s sleeveless are upright and flatten and lifted above the shoulders like butterfly wings.
