Pieces used in the 15th century such as the outer skirt (basquine) and the hairstyle known as churros, similar to the plaits used by women of the period, persisted and even retained the term used to describe the ribbon tying them, trenzadera. In addition, in the 17th century the blouse collar, similar to the Spanish lettuce-like ruffs of the era was introduced.
