Who would have worn chaps?
Since Romeo and Juliet are not real people and the setting is not specified in the text, they can wear whatever you think will work. T-shirts and jeans work for me. Others thi…nk mostly robes and cloaks in brown and red.
The fabrics of the day were all natural. They were mostly cotton, wool, and linen, although some Yankees still wore animal skins and leaves.

They could have worn anything. It depends on the climate and the time period as well as culture, wealth and availability of raw materials (wool, cotton, silk etc.).

To hold the rider closer and tighter to the saddle. This also prevents the rider's leg from rubbing against the stirrup leather creating blisters on the rider's leg.

Typically pantyhose are worn in the professional setting but can also be worn on dates and other social occasions for a nice, finished look. I wear them in the office setting… and out on the town although I prefer thigh highs on a date.
There is no special clothing worn. It depends on the family and what type of party (if any) is being held.

In Middle Ages
Since the term lady implies wealth and status, I guess you are asking about the nobility. Fashions changed considerably throughout the very long medieval period, so a lady …in 1150 did not look anything like a lady in 1450; furthermore, there were different fashions in different European countries - a Welsh lady looked very different to a Flemish lady or a Spanish lady, or an Italian lady or a German lady. Explaining all of these different fashions would take an entire book, so there is only space here to describe a particular time period in one country - let's take Anglo-Norman England in about 1180: The wife of an Anglo-Norman knight wore an expensive undergarment called a chemise, made of fine linen or silk. It might be dyed a solid colour such as blue, green or red, or it might be bleached very white; it had long, tight sleeves and was ankle-length, with a round neckline. It was effectively the same as a man's undershirt, but much longer and was the only underwear worn by women. Over this the lady might wear various styles of dress, made of fine wool cloth or silk; these different types of dress had different names, such as bliaut, robete, purprine, guliun, gune, habit or cheinse . One fashion that had just appeared in 1180 was a dress with a V-neck and sleeves that were tight to the wrist but had very long, boat-shaped pendants (tippets) hanging down from the wrist, often lined in a contrasting colour of material. Over this the lady would wear a cloak outdoors (a mantle, flaure, espauler or muscelet ), which was lined with fur (ermine, vair or grey squirrel fur) for wear in the winter. The dress might be tied at the waist with a leather belt with a D-shaped bronze buckle and an enamelled bronze bucklplate and strap-end; there were sometimes silvered bronze plates along the length of the belt, and white silk stitches along both edges. The belt was deliberately made too long so that the end would hang down the front of the dress. The cloak would be fastened with an enamelled bronze brooch and the lady might wear gilded bronze rings set with natural-shaped gemstones (uncut) called cabochons . On her head the lady might have a hairnet or snood of fine gold threads, or her head might be covered with a long linen veil. Her hair would normally be grown extremely long, parted in the middle and braided in two plaits. These plaits might include coloured ribbons. On her feet a lady wore typical flat leather turnshoes, made of black or tan coloured calfskin. Along the top of the foot might be lines of silk stitches, or the shoes might be embroidered with groups of white dots. See links below for images:
In the period 1550 -1850, casual beaver caps were the common wear for hunters and trappers in north America. - The beavers they trapped were processed back east, and in Europe… and the felted fur was used for many ceremonial military hats of all kinds.
Stores such as Amazon stock a variety of safety clothing, in particular chainsaw chaps but retailers who specialise solely in protective clothing are a batter option because y…ou are more likely to be able to guarantee the quality. Gemplers and Home Depot are two examples of larger retailers who stock a wide range of chaps.
