Please see the picture above. Thanks to flickr.
"The traditional folk dress is a well loved costume of Jamaica. It is a beautiful outfit of red and white plaid cotton material which is worn for Independence Galas and other holidays in Jamaica by ladies.
There have been various designs of this costume worn by all Miss Jamaica World Contestants but the the most constant is the bandana skirt and the bandana head tie in red and white plaid.
Jamaican men also wear this costume in a shirt with white pants and a bandana head tie."
