Arnemuiden is a town in the province of Zeeland, in the very South-West of the Netherlands. Most traditional costumes from this part of the country are known best for their elaborate lace headdresses, and the same holds for Arnemuiden. It is also one of the few places where the costume is still worn daily by a group of women.
The costume consists of a black shirt, a colorful ‘beuk’, which is basically a shirt without sides or sleeves, a shawl-like garment of the same fabric, a white under-skirt, a black over-skirt and an apron (either black for Sunday or white/black patterned for work days). The headdress consists of a metal spiral piece of jewelry, a lace under-cap, a small blue cap and a large lace over-cap. The woman almost always wore necklaces made out of red coral and gold. Here are some pictures of the different parts of the costume:
