Fashion in Ancient Egypt was diverse and at times extremely revealing as you can see from the above dress that was made around 2323-2150 BC.

Men and women alike wore wonderful pieces of clothing to amplify their beauty and also to establish their social status. Talk about high society.

The more intricate and beautiful the item of clothing was the more important and wealthy the wearer must have been. Flaunting your wealth was a must.

Obviously, not everyone could afford such a luxury. Egyptian men wore a simple cloth across their waist and sometimes a cloth shirt. Women wore simple straight dresses with one or more shoulder straps.

Footwear was simple. Because most of the time they went barefoot. Unless they needed protection, then they would wear simple sandals made from either woven palm or leather - if one could afford it.
