Elizabethan Clothing & Fashion - Women
Elizabethan Clothing & Fashion for women varied according to whether they were a member of the Nobility, Upper Class or one of the poor, working class. But whether a woman was wealthy or poor she was not allowed to wear whatever she liked... She could be richer than a Countess but if she did not have an equivalent title she was not allowed to wear clothes made of the same fabric or even of the same color.

Elizabethan clothing was governed by Sumptuary Laws which were designed to maintain the strict class structure which had started in the early Medieval era with the Feudal System.
