Glorious Grecian Draping

October 15, 2008

As far as I’m concerned, the Greeks really knew what they were doing when it came to draping.

There’s a lot to be said for revealing just a little bit of skin here and there and covering up the areas you’d rather the world didn’t see,  with layers of fabric.

Highlight your shoulders, neck or collar bones (or whatever you feel is your best feature) with an asymmetrical neckline and let classic draping do the rest.

Make like Katie and team with gorgeous flat embellished sandals for a perfectly chic summer look.

(1) Something to team with jeans, this little one-shoulder stunner will see you through summer in high style.

(2) Another number to jazz up your jeans. This unusual design is simple yet striking. Probably best for girls without swimmer’s shoulders though.

(3) What’s not to love about this gorgeous dove grey dress? It’s cool and comfy on those long, hot summer days and reveals a sexy hint of shoulder?  A real winner as it’ll take you from the beach to the bar for sundowners.

The showstopper Grecian dress that received much attention in last week’s column!  It really is a stunning little number, and in black is the perfect LBD.

    I love the white “toga party” looks with gold accessories, loosely styled hair and of course, the signature Mediterranean tan!
