Llevamos el traje típico

Is usamos wrong here instead of llevamos?

Usar does not mean to wear whereas llevar does

Hola Peter,

I have seen 'usar' used to say 'to wear', however I believe it's used in Latin American Spanish, Mexican Spanish. In Spain one would only use 'llevar'= to wear.

Hola Peter

Yes, we'll add "usamos" as another option because it is used in parts of Latin America.

Un saludo

Ok, I’ve seen it used before but didn’t know it wasn’t used in Spain. Thanks.
