Greek clothing is known for being loose-fitting, extremely flattering and highly wearable. The most-replicated Greek garment is without doubt the toga; with its asymmetric design and comfortable fit it is endlessly being reworked by designers to bring an air of laid-back elegance to their collections. Accessories were also prominent in Greek fashion; braided headbands, delicate gold-leaf jewellery and skinny belts all originate from ancient Greek clothing and are still featured in several collections each season. In terms of fabric, Greek clothing tends to be made from lighter fabrics such as wool or linen, making them easy to drape and cinch.
