Let's step back into the time machine for a fashion adventure. Where would you like to go The colonial era, you say Well, we'll have a good distance to travel. The Colonies were founded in 1607 and lasted through 1776, so as you can imagine, the fashions changed along the way. No worries, though. We'll gladly cover the different eras for everyone, from the Revolutionary soldiers to upper-class ladies like the Schuyler sisters.

We've decided to start you off with a rich selection of clothing from the colonial era. We've included a Puritan costume that would look right at home on the streets of Boston in the 1620s. The adult colonial costume belongs in the 18th century with the merchant class. The ensemble featuring the elegant blue coat and white wig would be an excellent choice for anyone dressing up as the founding fathers because it has a formal, military bearing.

Women were less concerned with keeping their hemlines clean and more concerned with keeping their ankles covered. Women's fashion became more complicated the higher one rose in the social ladder. Higher-class women wore different clothing depending on the time of day. A dress suitable for daytime events had a higher neckline, as seen in the costume featured here. To prepare for nighttime events, upper-class ladies would don full skirts with cages underneath called panniers. Unlike their modest daytime gowns, these looks sported bared arms and low-cut bodices. The women's colonial costume would be appropriate for a woman in the middle class who's dressed for a special daytime occasion.

In the 1600s, colonial America was a rough place to live. Many people lived in simple wooden huts, even in larger towns. Water was often unsafe to drink, so colonists drank locally-made alcoholic beverages like cider and beer. By mid-century, the colonists were escaping the dark ages of the witch hunt, Plymouth Rock era. Every day people had enough energy to contemplate seeking independence from England's reign. At this point, men in the merchant class would have worn a costume such as the Benjamin Franklin costume pictured here.

Do you want to appear as if you'd be right at home in the Boston pubs that hosted revolutionaries like John Adams and Alexander Hamilton Then you're in the right place. These revolutionary looks are great for school projects, Fourth of July events, and even walks through colonial towns. Whether you want to wear a gown and talk politics by candlelight or look ready for a skirmish with the English, we have costumes for everyone!

Colonial women typically had a lot of work on their hands. Cooking and cleaning was a much more daunting task than it is today. It required building a fire, lugging iron pots around, and maybe even catching a chicken or two. With this in mind, it makes sense that colonial women's clothing was not centered around the corset. Clothing in the 17th century and 8th century was simpler than in the Victorian era. We'll go into more detail about the different pieces of the typical women's colonial costume in the next two sections.

Puritans were all about following the rules. This especially came into play when it came to their clothing. Extra trimmings and ornaments were banned in Puritan culture. Women wore long sleeves in all weather, simple boots, and kept their hair covered by a loose-fitting cap called a coif, as seen in the Pilgrim costume featured above. If you're looking to play a part in classic plays like The Crucible or revisit colonial towns in style, our Pilgrim costume is a great way to go!

Now, modern folks might feel a little uncomfortable in all that clothing. Luckily, we have a few options that fit the 17th-century wardrobing bill. Our prairie dress costume would work well for a well-to-do farm wife, especially when paired with a white apron and a scarf tied over the hair. The colonial dress fits the 17th-century era best, a wonderful choice for those who want to look right at home at a function with the Schuyler sisters. Those who want a more buttoned-up and proper costume might like dressing up as Martha Washington herself!

In the following sections, we'll give you some ideas on how to bring your character of choice to life. We'll also tell you more about men's colonial clothes just for a little historical fun!

Men in the colonial era often wore similar suits no matter their class. The main difference between the suits was the cut of the jacket and the material of the clothing. You've probably seen the suits in paintings of John Adams and Benjamin Franklin. Men's suits started with a simple shirt that fell to the knees. Stockings made of linen, wool, cotton, or even silk were layered underneath. A pair of knee-length, high-waisted breeches would be layered over the top. Then a waistcoat (also known as a vest) would button up over the white shirt. A long coat was layered over the whole ensemble. And finally, the look was topped off with a tricorn hat. The men's colonial outfit was a dapper look that lasted into the 19th century.

Are your kids ready to have a little historical fun Luckily, it's super easy to put together authentic colonial costumes for kids. This is because children in the colonial era dressed a lot like their parents. Little girls wore stays and petticoats while little boys wore breeches and jackets. Little boys were actually strapped into stays because colonial parents believed that helped with good posture. While we wouldn't suggest putting any kiddos in stays, if you're looking for a colonial costume for your kid, you can choose an outfit that's just like the adult costumes that you like best. Check out some great options below!

As the talk of independence from England rose to a fever pitch, women of all social strata in colonial America began to feel compelled to patronize local trade shops. With patriotic fervor came a call to action, and in the 1760s non-importation agreements blocked English trade in the colonies. As a result, American shoe production skyrocketed. After the war, these shoemakers began to develop a luxury market that directly competed with England.[10]

Roads in the Colonies were muddy. Even in dry places, dust would get dresses very dirty. Women worked hard and had no air conditioners or electric fans. Even women of wealth and royalty did work, and they would get sweaty. The natural fabrics and the design of their clothes kept them comfortable between washings. Only the bottom most layers would get sweaty and have to be cleaned often.

n 1931 stonemasons were hard at work building Duke Chapel on the new Main Quad, designed to invoke the "dreamy spires" of historic Oxford University. While James B. Duke was constructing a Tudor Gothic campus to honor his father, the son of another millionaire was creating a very different national educational institution. Late that same fall, John D. Rockefeller Jr. hired brick masons to reconstruct the Capitol Building and the colonial Governor's Palace in Williamsburg, Virginia. He had secretly bought up most of the sleepy college hamlet, displacing many local residents in order to reconstruct the town to resemble Virginia's colonial capital on the eve of the American Revolution. 59ce067264
