Medieval Clothing


Throughout the entire Middle Ages clothes mostly remained unchanged, and novelties were introduced gradually. By the arrival of the Germanic tribes to European territory, trousers became more common, and an omnipresent element in both female and male clothing throughout the entire period were tunics. Social classes, professions and nations differentiated by clothes, and by the end of this period it assumed somewhat more extravagant shapes, which outraged the ecclesiastical community.
