Woylaa.com – This is summertime, and many women feel more comfortable when wearing flowing dress with bright colors. New fashion trends this year use Mediterranean flair by incorporating Greece style dresses into modern summer attire. The typical style of Greek dresses is flowing, short sleeved, wide necked, with draped, light fabric and light colors to cool the wearers under the hot sun of Mediterranean land. Greek dresses are typically obvious in party or formal dresses, but there are also more practical versions for summer attire in more casual atmosphere.
Even if you do not actually have Greek dresses, or dresses by designers that make Greece inspired collections, you can emulate the Greek women inspired look by choosing the right outfit. Add the right accessories, and you are ready to be Greek woman in seaside village or even a Greek goddess statue lookalike.
New Fashion Trends: Draped, Covering Fabric
Draped, covering fabric was once considered old fashioned and too maternal. Now, such fabric has become new favorites among celebrities and fashion enthusiasts. Greek style dresses with long, flowing fabric and draped style are often combined with very short sleeves, a single sleeve or wide necked dress, and the fabric is super light so the wearer can feel more comfortable. In addition, the minimal embellishments also balance the flowing, rather heavy look for more covering fabric, so your overall appearance does not look clunky.
Besides flowing draped fabric, new fashion trends also put more attention to Greece style tunic, made of light cotton with white and blue dominated colors that represent traditional tunic that Greek men and women often wear as traditional attire. There are also Greek tunics that are modified into short dress, so it will be more suitable for modern summer dress (kind of like Boho chic style). Combination between light fabric and extra cuts is perfect to create comfort in your summer ensemble.
Light Color, Light Accessories
To accompany these new fashion trends, use light accessories that match the light, flowing nature of a summer dress. Popular accessories for Greek dresses are flats, sandals, gladiator style shoes, stone jewelry, elaborate brooch and long earrings. However, light accessories should have some distinctive parts, such as simple one string necklace with colorful stone pendants, or thin bracelets with small precious stones. Light accessories emphasize the dresses, instead of overpowering.
For the color of the dresses, light colors are the best options for summer attire. Since blue is popular again as the part of new fashion trends this summer, blue embellishments or details on the dress are very nice options to invite perfect summer look as well as the signature color that reminds people of the sea, summer sky, and Greek flag.
For shorter summer dress, you can add wide brimmed hat from straw, to add some casual, beachwear style attire style. For more formal style, you may want to use hairpins, or form a bun to give your neck more cooling air. The whole appearance does not have to be too elaborate; the point of the Greek dresses is the beauty of flowing fabric and natural style from the land of Mediterranean. This is a part of new fashion trends nowadays; light, simple, not overpowering, but gorgeous.
