Rezumat / Summary: Clothing is a component of the ‟social skin”, highlighting more or less subtly the socio-cultural boundaries between individuals. On the other hand, its individual transformations, at some point, define the inclusion in certain categories of individuals (young and old; married and unmarried). Collective historical transformations can be corroborated with certain influences, cultural appropriations and models with a wider spread area and evolutionary process (eg: Oriental, Balkan or urban influences; identity strategies). Not least, the ‟social skin” is in accordance with dichotomous structures, such as everyday-festive, functional-aesthetic, tradition-innovation, norm-elusion of the norm. In this approach we will consider some aspects regarding the costume of the Romanians, Aromanians, Megleno-Romanians, Bulgarians, Greeks, Turks, Tatars, Ukrainians, Russian Lipovans, Molokans, Skoptsy, Italians, Germans, Jews, Gypsies/ Roma and Circassians who composed or still compose the ethnic mosaic from Northern Dobruja.
