Stuart Clothing

The new King James was nicknamed the 'Foppish King' and set the standard for a more ornate and elaborate style. Lace tended to replace the ruffs and breeches became more popular. Of course, these Stuart fashions would ultimately come into conflict with the puritans who despised the ornate style as they felt it was veering dangerously towards the Catholic traditions.
