Going deep into the history, one can notice the distinguishing feature of a skirt as an article of clothing – the fact that it existed even before the fabric was invented. The simple design of this universal apparel allowed to manufacture it of straw or palm leaves. In ancient times in many cultures it was worn both by men and women and there are still examples of unisex skirts, such as scottish kilt. However getting on for our favorite period of time medieval skirts were significantly dominated by dresses as the main type of garment.
The role of the middle ages skirt was pushed into the background. Early in the period it was used as an outer layer – worn over the dress it prevented the latter from damages unavoidable during housekeeping. And conversely switched to the undergarment subcategory at the 16th century adding volume or providing the desired shape to the bottom part of luxurious dresses of Renaissance epoch.
