A Peek at Fourteenth Century Fashion
by Debbie Lynne Costello
Clothing styles have always changed, even back in medieval times. While changes were slower than today, styles did come and go. And fashion within the same style varied from country to country. My story is set in the late 1300’s (fourteenth century) but an interesting fact is that as early as the 15th century sumptuary laws* began to regulate the cost of clothing. This included the length of items such as shoes, hoods, and trains.
*Note: According to the Encyclopedia Brittanica, sumptuary law is "any law designed to restrict excessive personal expenditures in the interest of preventing extravagance and luxury."
