When performing before an audience or at a special event, Nijemo Kolo dancers, in addition to their opanci shoes or boots, will wear traditional costumes of the Dalmatian hinterland. For women and men, this means a combination of several layers of clothing in black, white, red and gold. Both sexes wear a bareta or crvenkapa — a red pillbox hat, with women attaching a white habit to the back of theirs. Other additions may include silver coins attached to costumes, as well as colorful sashes, belts and fringe.
