Peasant fashion, sometimes called renaissance clothing, is a more eccentric, original style of clothing that is known for comfort. Skirts and blouses in many cases feature loose, off the shoulder necklines, split necklines styled to resemble tunics or drawstrings that can be tied. Peasant style clothing is often loosely woven, using such natural fabrics as linen or soft, combed cotton. Colors used include earth tones such as brown, tan, white and ivory. Blouses are often adorned with embroidery, and outfits are designed using floral patterns. The sleeves are soft and ruffled or bell-shaped. Male peasant clothing often incorporates a collarless shirt, pants and belt. Shirts are usually not tucked in.

In 1976 designer Yves Saint Laurent created what came to be known as the "Rich Peasant" or "Peasant Chic" look. Designs were characterized by drawstring blouses and long, full skirts with a gathered waistband called dirndl skirts. A Rich Peasant outfit featured fur trim and knee length boots made of calfskin. Add-ons included scarves, shawls and vests. Saint Laurent's designs remained popular through the mid-1980s.

The original, more basic peasant look has enjoyed a revival in recent years. In addition to the conventional fabrics, rayon and crushed velvet polyester have become popular. Medieval and peasant style clothes include men's and women's shirts and pants and women's blouses, skirts, peasant dresses, embroidered tops, bloomers, maternity wear and accessories.
