The history of renaissance clothing dates back to early 1940’s, where it started with a single nation and
then spread throughout the world creating a big impact. However the renaissance costumes were in a
stage of evolution during this period when the Germans made an improvement in the natural silhouette.
They liked to put bulk of large puffs all over from their head, thighs, arms, back and chest. Also they
used feathers to accessorize their whole costume. This stage was followed with more and more
discoveries making the renaissance costume more and more creative. These costumes were generally
available in dark colors, with the black velvet mostly used for the head dresses. White linen was used
with gold and burgundy colored pirate shirt and with collar and wrist ruffles.




When there was an important event, the rich people used to wear an expensive sort of a garb and the
ones who cannot afford such garbs wore a usual one. Renaissance clothing for male included a variation
between a low crowned brimmed cap which sometimes was one side turned up or turned up all around.
The most usual hairstyle was bobbed. The length and style of the hair depended on their own tastes.
During the 16th century men preferred hair similar to the men today in the 21st century.

The women medieval clothing for female had variations among cote or handkerchief as collars around
their neck. The sleeves were of funnel type which began wide and tighten when reaching the cuff. Just
like men they also had a fashion of wearing a low crowned hat. They either had a very complex sort of
hairstyle or simply wore a kerchief to cover the head. Their look and dress used to resemble that of
Puritans to a great extent.
As a whole the significant features of pirate clothing are that these medieval clothing mostly used rich
and heavy quality materials which are in great volumes, shoes had wide toes with no heels, men and
women liked to cover their head with head dresses or hats, body garments had large sleeves and large
hip dresses. These renaissance dresses have played a vital role in the history of mankind, and as a result
the renaissance or the period of rebirth has permanently marked a significant position in the history.
