Men and women in Ancient Egypt wore light linen clothing. Men's dress-like clothing was shorter, and women's dresses were longer. Dresses of aristocratic ladies were often beaded and tied at the waist to make the figure appear hour glass. Women wore heavy make-up for beauty and also for protection from the sun. Elaborate wigs were popular and clipped in a typically Egyptian fashion. Jewelry was popular for all classes, but jewelry of the aristocracy was made of precious metals and stones. Egyptian necklaces and bracelets tended to be heavy and clunky. The styles of ancient Egypt have been copied over the years for their beauty and sensuality, and some of them are still popular today.
