Classicism refers to the period of history in 1600-1800. In terms of fashion, the term refers to an aesthetic of fashion derived from Ancient Greek and Roman art, using clean, simple lines to create a timeless look. Classicism can also refer to the use of Greek and Roman motifs in fashion. Designers tend to interpret classicism in two different ways; in a literal way, by directly replicating items of clothing used in art such as togas or Greek tunics, or in a more creative way, taking the underlying attributes of the artwork (clean proportions and smooth lines) and working them into their own personal aesthetic.
