What did Kings, queens, and average egyptians wear?

A average Egyptian usually wore linen. The men would wear a kilt. The length of the kilt would change throughout the time periods. Just like how our fashion goes in and out as well. The woman would wear a dress that had two straps. Although the the children didn't even wear clothes on a regular basis in till they were a teenager! Boy am I glad that I didn't live in that society!Away from the common Egyptian the kings wore the softest linen. They wore tons of gold, copper, precious gems, and other metal. This was a sign of wealth. The queen would wear a common dress with soft linen and wear the finest jewelry. She would also wear heavy make-up. She saw this as making herself beautiful.
