Best Answer

In the early years of the civil war, the common soldiers on both sides would have dressed very similarly. They would have breeches and doublets made of woollen cloth, linen shirts, leather boots, and musketeers would have had leather tunics to protect their clothes from powder burns, while pikemen would have worn metal breastplates to protect them from pike wounds.

The officers on both sides would have worn more elaborate clothing as they were members of the upper classes,and might have had long hair, plumed hats, lace collars, and clothing made of more expensive fabrics like velvet and silk. Some parliamentary officers might have been more austere in their dress than royalist officers, but not all parliamentarians were Puritans, and some would have been just as dressy as the royalists.

After Cromwell and Fairfax created the New Model Army, they parliamentary army became distinctively different, with red uniforms (red continued to be the colour of the British Army uniform up until the Boer War).

Hmmm, elegant dresses. I'm not sure, but type in your search engine 1600s, women, fashion and something will likely pop up. Try the images section.
