As the Roma are only mentioned in European literature from the 14th century, much of the focus on pre-17th century 'Gypsy' dress (the ethnic group known today as the Roma, Romani or Romany) is from the 15th century onwards.

The typical dress of women, according to artwork, consisted of a white smock, a draped blanket, and a turban or veil. There are paintings that show women wearing more standard dresses with their drape worn over the top as well.

Men appear to have assimilated into wider European culture more easily, although early 15th century images show men wearing distinctive, tall hats.
