A new king, who wasn't English (James the First was Scottish), and the style was decidedly different. The 16th century had been dominated by Spanish influence; in the 17th century, the influence was French. The style for men was longer hair, lace and frills around the knees, bucket boots sometimes to the waist, sometimes pushed down; the Van Dyck beard says it all. Women dropped their necklines, narrowed their sleeves and bared their arms to the elbow, showed their hair. The Puritans, with their short hair and plain clothes, looked chic without intending to.
