This is a copy of a paper that I gave at a Collegium recently. It gives an overview of styles and various elements of French dress in the first three quarters of 16th century. An overview of the last quarter will be published eventually. More images of dress during these periods can be found in the galleries, which I hope will be updated shortly.
