Belorussian national costume dates back to the Medieval times. In XIV-XVI centuries it had its specific features and in XIX centuriy it was entirely formed.
  There are some areas where there are different features of traditional costume in the technique, in the way of wearing some details of clothes, in the type of ornament. Such local varieties of a costume determine the term «stroy». To distinguish a separate stroy it’s considered to have casual and festive clothes, outwear, footwear, head dresses and ornamentation jewellery. There are both men’s and women’s costumes within the «stroy».
