the worst look in the world
without doubt the most foul era of this world's existence aesthetic wise, would be the middle ages. it is them who we have to thank for the hideous medieval revival in the 70s and crushed velvet.
laceup tops, hideous bent jewellery, cheap magical stones and crystals, wispy long hair and hand bags held together with ribbons.
don't get me wrong, one person has pulled it off. stevie nicks. what a genius. she can pull a wizard sleeve off and a silk scarf as she weaves a trail of magic where ever she goes. no one else can. and rightly so, she can have her antique furniture and tiffany lamps flown around the world with her, just to make her that bit more comfortable, as it is only going to make her performance for us even better
the dark ages did however bring about fine weaponry. who can go past a mace or a bommy knocker? torture chambers and moats are other things that we could use more of today. but fuck the clothes, they are seriously ugly, and look even worse today
