Transcript of Medieval Fashion

By: Aileen Levan Medieval Fashion Women A lot of the clothing that women wore in the Middle Ages, were mostly influenced by Greek and Roman fashion. Men Monks & Nuns Monks in Medieval Times wore a tunic that was tied to the waist by a piece of cloth or a leather belt. They also wore a piece of woollen cloth over their head and shoulders, called the scapula. There is also a cowl that is worn, a hood that is attached to the scapula. Monks might also wear a cross around their necks or hair shirts.
Nuns in Medieval Times would wear almost the same clothes as monks, except they would wear a veil with it. Knights Knights have many different parts to their outfits. They had underclothes and woollen stockings on underneath their armor to help protect them. They could have worn a surcoat, a robe with a belt, over their armor. The knight's shoes were often pointed and they had a velvet cap that showed that they had more authority than peasants and serfs. They would also sometimes wear a purse attached to their belt. Serfs & Peasants The peasant women were usually the ones who spun the wool for the clothing of men and women.
The peasant and serf men would wear a simple tunic, usually with a belt around the waist, where a knife was held, and short trousers made of wool. Occasionally, they would wear a wool cap.
The women would wear a plain long dress and a simple cloth headdress. Since the headdress would usually determine the social position of the owner, the serfs and peasant would have the least extravagant one. Both men and women, in this social class, would wear leather boots on their feet. The clothing and fashion in Medieval Times helped to distinguish what social class everyone was in. The type of clothing you wore in the Middle Ages showed how wealthy and powerful you were. The clothing of peasants noticeably differed from the clothing of nobles. The wealthy, nobles, religious, and peasants wore all different types of clothing and had different forms of fashion. Introduction Conclusion There were lots of clothing made from wool. Most women in Medieval Times also wore many different types of headdresses. Only wealthier women could wear fancier outfits. The wealthy would also wear brighter and longer outfits to showcase their wealth. Their dresses were often extravagantly emboidered and very large too.

The head piece or hat worn by a person showed what class everyone was in. Important, wealthy, and royal men usually wore velvet caps. They would also usually have a cloak or robe on. Wealthy men made sure to show their riches and treasures in their outfits. They wore huge belts, many pearls, and gold and silver on their clothing. Colors of cloth, like scarlet, blue, or reddish-brown, were worn to show how rich you were. The tunics that were worn varied in length depending on how wealthy you were. It seems like in Medieval Times, everything was about your social status. Your status determined what you had to wear. All the different types of clothing and fashion were shown in the Middle Ages. The wealthier you were, the more choices you had to pick what to wear. The lower class didn't really have a choice of what to wear. Poor people wore dull and boring clothes, while rich people had very elaborate and fancy clothes. Sources
