Clothing for Events
Men and women in the Elizabethan Era wore different clothing for different events. Formal events required formal attire and informal events allowed for informal attire. Formal attire often consisted of elaborate gowns and the finest jewelry. The men often wore fancy jackets and feathered hats. On a more informal occasion, the men and women dressed more casually. Women often wore simple, light gowns and men often wore lighter jackets and clothing. Less jewelry was worn as well. In times of mourning, people often wore the color black to show that they were in mourning (Leed).
