Malagasy men in their traditional attire.
Dressing styles vary in different regions of Madagascar. A large section of the country’s urban population follows the western style of dressing. In the highland areas, rural areas, and remote places of the country, traditional dresses are still worn. Both men and women wear a lamba, a traditional wrap that is worn around the waist. Women often wear a matching shawl over the head and shoulders. In the highland regions, both men and women adorn a white wrap on their shoulders above their garment. Various styles of straw hats are worn in the country that helps protect the wearers from the strong rays of the sun.
