Help | My MC's Fashion


I’m having trouble figuring out what my MC would wear in my high fantasy novel. I think the time period is the 1500s for the entire series, but I might have to change that because of what I’ve researched so far. I know my MC is opposed to wearing tunics as her adoptive sister wears, but she also doesn’t want to wear a gown (until she becomes a princess). So, I need alternatives for her to wear.

Is anyone able to help?

Help is on the way!

My only problem with this link is that my MC was born in 1500, and the stories take place in 1517/1518 beyond

You didn’t specify, but the website also has it for that time period, too.

I think I need to move to a later era. More likely when women could wear pants. So 1800s.

Divided skirts, then.

I often don’t get so detailed with what the clothing is like. I just switch to slightly older words like trews.

Trews are plaid tight pants, specifically.


A Tabard is a man’s short coat.

Women wore tabards, too. It’s basically an apron, which would allow armor to go under it, for men…
