In Ancient Egypt, because of the
scorching temperatures, the citizens, men and women, wore white linen or
transparent robes. The men wore skirts. The younger men's skirts were shorter
than older men's. The women of Egypt wore low cut linen dresses with shoulder
straps. The children didn't wear any clothes. All Egyptians, rich and poor
alike, owned and wore jewelry, such as, necklaces, collars, beaded strings,
bracelets, anklets, rings, and earrings. Egyptians owned sandals but went
barefoot most often, saving the sandals for special occasions.
