Hats with straight brims were decorated with ribbons or sashes tied across the top of the hats.n shirts cut in a tunic style.
The Clothing of Klaipėda region Women in Klaipėda wore shirts that were cut differently from those in other ethnographic regions. They had raglan style shoulder tabs and were distinguished by decoration unique to this cutting style. Woven in or sewn on red ornaments decorated the shoulder tabs and the top part of the sleeves.
Clothing of Aukštaitija Men in Aukštaitija wore grey, brown or brownish undyed matted woolen caftans. In eastern Aukštaitija they were sewn gathered at the waist, and in western Aukštaitija - with a pleated back or sides. Similar cloth was also used to make long trousers. A felt hat was an important part of their costume. A ribbon with flowers and feathers was tied to the top of the hat. A home made or purchased neckerchief was worn on the neck.
Clothing Of Aukštaitija Gold and silver tone, green and red bodices were most favored in Aukštaitija. A galloon was a young maiden’s favorite headdress. Married women in Aukštaitija wore a wimple, a very old style of headdress. A more modest everyday headdress was the bonnet made from linen netted lace, or white or colored material.
The Clothing of Žemaitija Men in Žemaitija wore green coat Men's shirts were almost never decorated with woven or embroidered ornaments. If they were decorated, the decoration was usuall. Later, when men began wearing coats, shirts became somewhat showier.y only on just the very end of the cuffs and on the collar. Decorated with fine pleats and threads, such a shirt front resembled that of a gentleman.
The Clothing of Žemaitija Specially woven underskirts had horizontal stripes. Brightly colored wool was usually just woven onto the bottom where it would be seen only when the skirts were tucked in.White and colored embroidery methods became widespread among women. With the advent of this technique, embroidered underskirts began to appear. In northern Žemaitija, they took the form of red wool with colored garlands of flowers embroidered on the bottom.
The Clothing of Dzūkija Men in Dzūkija wore caftans of undyed grey matted woolen cloth. These widened toward the bottom and were decorated with dark trim as well as decorative threads. Long pants were made of the same cloth, from finely checkered grey, brown or dark wool, or of a half-woolen cloth. Men in Dzūkija wore decorative pick-up patterned sashes. Their footwear consisted typically of high or short boots, while the less wealthy wore naginės and vyžos. They also wore "magierka" shape hats as well as other hats, decorated with feathers or flowers.
The Clothing of Dzūkija The woven cloth of garments from Dzūkija is distinguished from that of other regions by its bright colors and smaller checkers and stripes. The parts of the shirts that could be seen from under the bodice were embroidered. These included the collar, shoulder tabs, chest and cuffs. Women also wore very unique shoes, the čempės, which were crocheted from thick tow threads decorated with knitting of colored thread.
