Scottish Costumes For Women
I haven’t got a clue why Starz and/or Diana Gabaldon haven’t come out with a wonderful line of Outlander costumes to support the series, but I live in hope.
Whether it’s for cosplay or for Halloween party wear, the hunt is on for 18th century Scottish costumes for women, right? What else would be as much fun as dressing like our favorite romantic heroine?
I’ve been cruising around the internet for awhile now trying to find appropriate period Scottish costumes women will love.
Here’s what I’ve found so far that would make great Claire Fraser costumes from Outlander. If you need Outlander Jamie Fraser Scottish Kilt Costumes For men, be sure to check the post I made just for him. You’re going to love all the Scottish costume ideas!

I searched for two particular periods in costumes for women at several costume merchants. Talk about having fun shopping! I found several beautiful Scottish costumes for women that I think you’ll like.
There are also colonial costumes for women and even a few Renaissance costumes for women here and there that have great potential as Claire Fraser costumes.
In choosing a costume for 18th Century Scottish Highland costumes for women, I looked at the bodice and especially the neckline. The Renaissance costumes tend to have those long flowing sleeves, too. I would consider replacing the sleeves if you really like the dress for your costume.
Some of the dresses are called “peasant lady” dresses, and they seem closest to what people around Claire would wear for daily wear.
With the peasant lady dresses, I would keep the off-the-shoulder sleeve ON the shoulder, but that’s me. I think it would be more authentic with the peasant blouse on the shoulder. What do you think? See something you like?

I searched Amazon and found a few more great possibilities for a Claire Fraser costume. These are excellent costumes to reflect Scottish Highlands daily wear. You can even spiff them up a little for period festival, or more dressy wear.
Remember that the 18th century bodice was tight-waisted and was either a laced jacket over a peasant blouse or it was actually a part of the dress. The bodice was low-cut, but the shoulders were actually worn on the shoulders. I mainly used that as a guide in looking for 18th Century Scottish Highlands costumes for women at Amazon.
Tweak these costumes just a little to transform them into what we want them to be – something Claire Fraser would have worn.
The results are here and I think you’ll like them. Be sure to read the descriptions closely as some of them might require that you also buy a chemise or blouse to wear under the costume.
