What are innkeepers wearing these days? (Nativity play related)

DD has come home with a note saying she is "an" innkeeper (I think that there may be a few of them) and a request to provide a simple costume. My last nativity play experience was 30 odd years ago when I was in one. I have a vague recollection of the innkeeper being in a brownish tunic/apron whilst all of the angels were in white sheets & tinsel and the shepherds were in dressing gowns & tea towels. Is that still the look most nativity plays go for or has it been modernised. I don't want DD looking like a 70s throw back!

Ours wear pretty much the same as Joseph and the shepherds (although I give the innkeeper the costume with the missing cloak, explaining the others need a cloak as they are travelling, but the innkeeper is at home so he doesn't need one!). This sort of thing ?? So basic tunic with apron is fine.

My daughter's the innkeeper's wife and I've just bought her this - planning to fashion the hat into some sort of apron if I can x

We had a tea towel disaster (stain that wouldn't bleach out) - so we went for dark leggings, white shirt - and then wrapped a fine shawl around DD2 and tied at back. Looked vaguely Middle Eastern - but was actually comfortable.
