What is the Medieval period?
In the history of Europe, the Medieval period is also known as the Middle Ages. It lasted from the 5th Century to the 15th, beginning with the fall of the Western Roman Empire and merging into the Renaissance.

Medieval women's clothing
Medieval clothing was dictated by the status of the person wearing the clothes. Women's fashion was influenced by classical Greek and Roman clothes. Early in the Middle Ages, clothes were worn tight against the body and women wore two tunics, one over the other, with a long cloak and closed, pointed toe shoes. During 1200 to 1300, women of high status lavished themselves with pearls, gold, and silver to display their wealth. During 1300 to 1400, women's coats trailed on the ground. Hats were embroidered or trimmed with lace. Long trains come into fashion in the 1400s to 1500s, and sleeves became long, hanging, embroidered or fringed.

Medieval men's clothing depended highly on the man's status, his employment, and the exact time period. Other options for your Medieval costume include chain mail, peasant dresses, Medieval Knight clothing, Medieval nobles or peasants, Medieval King or Queen, nun, priests, or suits of armour.
