The Egyptians generally wore linen clothes. (they used linen for like everything!!) Women either wore robes or tight dresses. Men wore robes too, and kilts, A.K.A. a man skirt! Men and women both wore colored headdresses for protection from the sun. The wealthy also had headdresses, but with jewels and gold on them. Most of the rich wore wigs. Common people most of the time went barefoot, but the rich could afford shoes which were made from papyrus or palm leaves. Wow their shoes must have been uncomfortable, I mean come on how comfortable are shoes made from leaves? Oh yeah and the young children of Egypt, just didn't wear any clothes at all! Well at least they didn't have to worry about laundry!
