In El Salvador, there are different costumes used mostly in religious or other festivals, although in some of the older towns, they are still worn regularly.

In female clothing, it is common to see elements like a scapular, a shawl, a cotton headscarf with different coloured adornments.  These can be worn with a skirt and a blouse, or with a dress.

The normal footwear is sandals. With male clothing, it is common to see a cotton suit or a cotton shirt, worn with modernn jeans, sandals or boots, and a campesino (peasant) hat.

However, these are rural fashions, and there can be many variations depending on the area.

El Salvador is the smallest and the most densely populated country in Central America. The country's capital city and largest city is San Salvador; Santa Ana and San Miguel are also important cultural and commercial centers in the country as well as Central America.Between 1524 and 1525, after participating in the conquest of Mexico, Spanish Conquistadors led by Pedro de Alvarado and his brother Gonzalo crossed the Rio Paz (Peace River) from the area comprising the present Republic of Guatemala into what is now the Republic of El Salvador. The Spaniards were disappointed to discover that the indigenous Pipil people had no gold or jewels like those they had found in Guatemala or Mexico, but recognized the richness of the verdant land's volcanic soil.

On September 15, 1821, in light of unrest in Guatemala, Spanish authorities capitulated and signed the Acta de Independencia (Deed of Independence) which released all of the Captaincy of Guatemala (comprising current territories of Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica and the Mexican state of Chiapas) from Spanish rule and declared its independence. In 1821, El Salvador joined Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua in a union named the Federal Republic of Central America.
