Superstitious Saturday Inside-Out

Superstitious Saturday Inside-Out

In Russia, it is believed that putting your clothes on inside-out is bad luck. Supposedly, doing so invites a beating. However, in China it is said that if you put your clothes on this way but immediately put them back on correctly it will bring good luck.

states that in China it is bad luck to wear your clothes inside-out because it foretells a death. But it will bring even worse luck if you put them back on the right way. The same source says this is an old gambler’s superstition and is where the word “turncoat” (meaning traitor) came from.

There are many other superstitions related to wearing one’s clothes inside-out – some good, some bad. Whether this applies to costumes or just regular clothes, I don’t know.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #173:
“Putting your clothes on inside-out is bad luck.”
