Gypsies can wear many things. Traditionally, many people imagine a gypsy dressed in pirate type attire. With the women wearing layered, colorful skirts, lots of scarves wrapped around their waists and hair, and big earrings. And then some visualize the men wearing cotton shirts with flowing arms and fitted pants. Almost all people think gypsies wear scarves around their head as well. But in modern times, gypsies can wear almost anything. As a gypsy is considered a person who travels in a group from place to place, making money along the way.
