    Happy Tuesday! This week we’re going to take a tour of the world... through fashion!

    From the Japanese kimono to the Russian sarfan, every culture has its own unique and meaningful form of traditional dress. Believe it or not, we can learn a lot about culture, history, and religion just by taking a closer look at clothing. We invite you to share your knowledge on ethnic and traditional forms of dress for our new Topic page.

    Ideas for exceptional Hubs include how-to instructions for wearing apparel items, histories of particular garments, and descriptions of the religious or cultural significance of traditional clothing styles.

    To join in on this week's challenge by writing a Hub, follow these steps:

    1)    Stop by this week's Weekly Topic Inspiration Question.
    2)    Click the green "answer this question" button.
    3)     Instead of answering the question in short form, click the gray "make a Hub about it" button. 
    4)    Give your Hub a title that follows our guidelines on crafting successful, competitive, search-friendly titles, which namely involves...

    A. Creating a title that is short and descriptive, matching what someone would type into a search engine when looking for information on the subject.
    B. Researching the keywords (the things people might type into search engines) by Googling them to make sure that the topic is not already extensively covered online and that you can beat the top results.
    C. Covering a subject about which you are particularly passionate- or in which you have unique, useful expertise.


    5)    Create good quality original content that hasn't been covered before.
    6)    Make sure the images you use are legally used and properly attributed so that your Hub has a chance of being selected as a Hub of the Day.
    7)    After you publish your Weekly Topic Inspiration Hub, come back to this Forum Discussion and post a link to your Hub with a brief description of what you wrote about and why.

    I decided to look into the traditional dress of my Choctaw ancestors. Fascinating stuff and great material for a hub!

      That's amazing.  I learned about the Choctaw from my instructor in my undergrad history class.  As a matter of fact, I was planning to do my hub on the Native American regalia I have photos of.  smile

      That is so fascinating, Austinstar! Thanks for sharing! I think the part about using the softest leather for shoes was particularly interesting, and it makes sense. Comfortable shoes make for such a huge boost in overall comfort.
