Transcript of FASHION

Introduction For Men
Describe The Type Of Make-Up Worn
Queen Elizabeth was very wild in fashion and had created her personal fashion trend during the period of her Reign. Both male and female were very Hair-conscious. They spent alot of time and money getting their hair dyed red or blonde(the most fashionable colours). Males would trim and style their beards, and Females wore their hair in Combs, Nets and Jewelled Pins.
Upper-Class Fashion, which included Hairstyles was highly sophisticated and was necessary to achieve attention and success. It was referred to as the 'Peacock Age', as the Upper-Class Elizabethan Men were often more Posh dressed than the Woman, and their hair and beards received a similar amount of attention. Men's Hairstyles had many different choices. Sometimes the hair was closely cut by the sides, and could be brushed up and held by gum, or perhaps curled over the head. The length of Hair was depended by the period of time in the Elizabethan Era. It started as short closely cropped hairstyles and increased in length during the period. It was fashionable for men to grow and groom(treat/take care of/maintain) beards in the Elizabethan Era. The styles and cut of beards changed each day. The beards could be cut in a wide variety of styles, including pointed, squared, round or oblong and starch was applied to keep them in place. Beards were mainly kept long. Interesting Fact: When the time of the Men came when they went bald or couldn't grow/didn't have moustaches and beards, they used to wear wigs just to keep up to date with the latest fashions!
The Cosmetics worn by the woman during the Elizabethan Era is completely different to what woman wear today. Not only were the materials and ingredients different but also the look woman wanted to achieve. Standards of Beauty has changed over centuries. Pale Skin was a sign of wealth, Upper-Class and elegance. Most Upper-Class and Wealthy people wore make-up. They were used to hide wrinkles and scars on the face with highly elaborate heavy white make-up. It was important for an Upper-Class woman to have light hair, snow white complexion with red cheeks and red lips. A pale complexion could only be achieved by someone of the Upper-Class, because Lower-Class people would be expected to work outside and then would get a suntan. Therefore pale complexion was a sign of Upper-Class and Wealth. This type of make-up was also worn by men to make them look Wealthier. This was called 'Alabaster Complexion'. The make-up used to make skin pale was called 'Ceruse', a mixture of white lead and vinegar which was poisonous. A pale complexion was so desirable that women were bled to achieve the desired look. Face paint made from plant roots and leaves were also applied. Expensive dyes such as Cochineal, Madder and Vermilion was used to make the cheeks and lips red. Kohl was used to darken the eyelashes.

EDITION: Elizabethan Age
What Did They Wear?
Describe What The High-Class People Wore & What It Was Made Out Of?
And Information about Accessories

Accessories Worn
Whatever they wore was decided on their wealth. The Elizabethan Sumptuary Laws chose whether or not people would wear certain types of colours and materials. This also helped to identify the rank, privilage and wealth of an individual. The Upper-Class people would wear Purple would be instantly known as being Royalty. The Upper-Class whom wore most colours(such as purple, black, white, violet, indigo blue, gold, silver, Crimson and Scarlet would instantly identify a persons status being at the highest nobility) and most materials(e.g. velvet, silk, lace etc). Whereas the Lower-Class people would wear colours such as mostly brown and faded colours and would wear basic materials that made them look like they were wearing potato sacks/bags. A High-Class female would normally wear a Gown, Hat, Corset/Bodice, Collars, Ruffs, Shoes, Underclothing, Smock/Shift also called Chemise, Stockings/Hose, Roll/Rowle, Stomacher, Petticoat, Kirtle, Forepart, Partlet, Over-Clothes, Separate Sleeves, Cloak, and many different types of Bustle, Pannier Dress and Farthingale every single day! The High-Class Males would only wear Underclothing, Shirt, Stockings/Hose, Codpiece, Corset, Over-Clothes, Doublet, Separate Sleeves, Breeches, Belt, Ruff, Cloak, Shoes and a Hat everyday.
The accessories in The Elizabethan Era is completely different to the accessories we wear today. The accessories of the Elizabethan Era are belts, hats, pouches, baskets, shoes, stockings and garters, Partlets, ruffs, gloves, flea furs, knifes/swords/daggers(and other weapons), tankards and favors.

HATS: All types of people wore some type of hat or head covering in the era. The hats and coverings varied according to class, gender, age and wealth.
BELTS: Peasant and Lower-Class Men often wore strong leather and Cloth belts. They were not worn to hold anything up but worn as a tool belt, to hang things from.
POUCHES: As Elizabethan Clothing didn't have pockets, people carried money and other small essentials in pouches also known as purses and handbags today. Pouches could be hung from the belt and for the woman, worn underneath the Skirt.
Describe How Hair Was Styled
Describe How Hair Was Styled
For Woman
The style of Queen Elizabeth was obviously more influential for Woman.Since the Queen had Red hair, it became really popular. It was thought to be the colour of Beauty and thought to make the with red hair to be attractive. Also the idea of a high forehead was considered to be very attractive, so therefore woman shaved the hair from the front hairlines. The 2 Main styles were the 'padded' style and the 'frizzed' style which both was worn by the Queen. The 'padded' style had to be done with 2 pieces called 'rats'- by its resemblance with animals and framed the face with a heart-shape form. The 'frizzed' style was a curly and rather casual hairdo. Most of the Hairdos wore accessories like hairnets(called "Cauls") or hats(called "Coifs"). Many of the hats were decorated with feathers, pearls, glass jewels, gold thread, embroidery,lace and spangles(such as glitter).Also the woman wore wigs to make sure their hairdo was perfect.
BASKETS: Servants, Middle and Lower-Class People would carry Baskets for Shopping, carrying Bulk things and to do their Marketing.
SHOES: The Shoes worn were Low and strong. High Heels were being invented and only highly fashionable people would wear it.
PARTLETS: One of the reasons Partlets were worn was because it covered up the neck and made you look more sophisticated.
RUFFS: In the Elizabethan Era, Ruffs were the Most important Fashion item.
GLOVES: Gloves were worn by the Upper-Classes for formal occasions. They were made of soft leather, wrist length, and were often decorated with embroidery or jewels. Black, Brown, Tan and White were the most common colours for Gloves.
FLEA FURS: Flea Furs were an accessory of the wealthy. They were small pelts of Sable, Fox, Ermine and other animals cured and stuffed. The Paws and the Head, or just the Snout, were replaced with ones made of gold and set with Jewels. They were worn over a persons shoulder or wrapped around the hip and attached to the belt. It was believed to be that the fleas would be attracted to the Flea Fur and away from the people.
KNIFES/SWORDS/DAGGERS (WEAPONS): Almost all Peasants and Middle and Lower-Class people carried knifes. Not for defense but for eating.
Daggers are defense weapons with double edged blades. They were only meant to be be worn by Men and kept in their belt. Daggers were only worn by the Middle and Lower-Class men.
All Gentlemen carried Swords, all the time. The best Sword style for the period was known as the 'Swept Hilt Rapier'. It was worn on the left hip if the Gentleman was right-handed. The Sword would be suspended from a belt by a leather hanger and this would be sometimes known as a 'Frog'.
If a man is going to wear a Sword, then they would've been taking a few fencing lessons, so that he can be able to stand and move around while carrying a Sword. Elizabethan Noblemen started studying Swordsmanship at the age of 5 years and often continued throughout their whole life. fmaihi
In conclusion, the fashion, styles, make-up, accessories and hairstyles have changed throughout centuries. Fashion in the Elizabethan Era was used to identify peoples rank and wealth. The Fashion in this time were very strict and laws were made by the Elizabethan Sumptuary Laws. A Upper-Class person would have to wear over 10 accessories so that they would be recognized as Upper-Class. They would have to wear heavy white make-up to look pale just to look Upper-Class even if they didn't want to. They didn't have the freedom as we have today. We can wear whatever we want and no one can do anything about it. Their Fashion laws were very strict. Even Lower-Class people could only wear certain colours and fabrics. I'm glad that we have the freedom to wear whatever we want. I think that the Elizabethan Era had the strongest fashion styles ever.
