3. Clothing

Clothing was an important need in the middle ages. Most people in the Middle Ages wore woolen clothing. Brighter colors, better materials, and a longer jacket length were usually signs of greater wealth. Women wore flowing gowns and elaborate headwear, ranging from headdresses shaped like hearts or butterflies to tall steeple caps and Italian turbans.

4. Info on Clothing

Statement 1: Towards the end of the Middle Ages, men of the wealthy classes sported hose and a jacket, often with pleating or skirting, or a tunic with a surcoat. (http://www.learner.org/interactives/middleages/clothing.html)
Statement 2: Most of the holy orders wore long woolen habits in emulation of Roman clothing. One could tell the order by the color of the habit: the Benedictines wore black; the Cistercians, undyed wool or white. St. Benedict stated that a monk's clothes should be plain but comfortable and they were allowed to wear linen coifs to keep their heads warm. The Poor Clare Sisters, an order of Franciscan nuns, had to petition the Pope in order to be permitted to wear woolen socks. (http://www.learner.org/interactives/middleages/clothing.html)
