Now updated for the 2014 Spring/Summer season. Originally published on 1/13/11.


This spring-summer trend gets its inspiration from the ancient Greece and Roman civilizations. The result will be seen in the form of folds and draped blouses, dresses, and skirts.

With this trend, you should not care for the clothing design itself; the goal here is to add draped details, folds and colors like sand, earth, black and white in your outfit to be in style.

These are examples to guide you through this trend of greek inspired dresses.
