The Best Revolutionary Costumes Ideas

After a time of exploration, English settlers began arriving and set up the first settlement in Jamestown, Virginia in 1607. The pilgrims followed in 1620 and set up another colony at Plymouth, in what is now Massachusetts. After this, other European settlers settled in the remaining colonies that popped up down the East coast. When their new found religious freedom and financial opportunity continued to be oppressed by King George of England, the “shot heard round the world” signaled the beginning of the Revolutionary war.  Dressing up in a colonial costume is a fine way to re-enact this important time of American history.

Revolutionary Costumes Ideas

Look like early settler in a Revolutionary costume, based in part on the continuing fashion in England and the necessity of making due with what was available. Everyday wear for the men, a pair of Colonial breeches and knee-length stockings and buckled leather shoes was worn on the bottom while the top featured a long doublet jacket, white collar and cuffs. A tricorne was also popular with revolutionary costumes during this time period. Patriots wore blue woolen uniforms while the Redcoats, or “The King’s Men”, wore British uniforms with red jackets over a vest with knickers.
