Italian renaissance costumes

Italian adult renaissance costumes have a natural appearance. Renaissance clothing could included a robe, which was actually a dress with attached bodice and skirt. The renaissance clothes were patterned fabrics (usually velvets and brocades). Men's renaissance clothing garments had lower necklines. Men wore hose and short padded breeches for added fullness. Broad toed shoes are part of a man's renaissance costume as well.
