Fashion; Something Practical And Beautiful; Bringing Back Cloaks

Updated on September 16, 2012

First, I am sorry, I could not find any pictures to go with this...yet. Those I really liked were linked to sales and resulted in a warning about seeming promotional. If I can find what I am looking for, I will ad them later.

After I watched Lord Of The Rings, I began to think seriously on the clothing. I really do wish such a style of clothing were in fashion today. Such clothing was not just practical, it was sturdy and beautiful...and comfortable. I am not one to wear dresses, but I think, if wearing such dresses as they did back in the medieval days were once again in fashion, I would jump on the dress wearing band wagon! And it looks like running around wearing tunics was comfortable to.

Back then only the richest could afford fancy material. Most just made their clothing from wool or linen. Today, everyone has access to a huge variety of materials. The imagination is our only limit to the designs we could create if we still made our own clothing. I have actually been toying with the idea of buying some material of my choice and trying my hand at making my own clothes. Only I will make them in the medieval style. I will then wear them in public and see if I can't bring them back into fashion.

Here, where I live on the reservation, I think good sturdy clothes would go over big regardless of what era they belong to. And cloaks...A good sturdy, woolen cloak would go far to keep many homeless warm. I have a throw that is made from 100% polyester. It is made into a yarn that has a fuzzy look, almost like hanks of fur. This is crochet or elsewise made into the throw. I like to turn this throw on end (it is longer than it is wide) and tie the corners of one end around my neck and wear it like a cloak. I do this when I am sitting at my computer and I feel chilly. It is superbly comfortable and warm.

Many people buy such clothing to wear as costumes, but I wonder how many of them would enjoy wearing such clothing on a day by day basis, if they were to come back into fashion. I know I would, and quite a few others I know would as well.

Would you enjoy wearing medieval clothing?
