Mistakes were Made
The Medieval era was a time of strong fashion choices. Noble people had wild outfits! Men often wore shoes that were up to two feet long. The toes were so long that they had to be stuffed with wool and whalebone to be kept in place. Men even wore them to battle and had to cut off the tips of the toes in order to run away from the enemy. Of course, women didn't escape inconvenient fashion trends. Rich gals wore tall cone-shaped hats, making going through doorways quite tricky. Ladies who were worried about ruining their nice shoes in the mucky streets would protect them by wearing wooden stilts that slipped over their shoes. This was so difficult that they had to hire attendants to help them get from place to place.
Medieval fashion trends didn't get it all right. What era did? At least now we can pick and choose what Medieval fashion trends we'd like to keep. We think this gorgeous green gown is a great place to start!
