Grecian Gown Trend 2009

History and fashion repeat themselves; don't be surprised to find out that Roman-esque and Grecian inspired clothing are a key fashion trend in 2009. This trend is all about the five "F's": flowy, floaty, feminine, figure, and form. The Grecian trend is making a statement to which Hollywood is responding especially in the Screen Actors Guild awards last January 25, 2009 like Angelina Jolie who wore Max Azria gown, to more obvious style like January Jones Andrew Gn dress, Anne Hathaway and America Ferrera joined the trend with draped dresses with lovely detailing, and therefore we should respond as well! I wonder maybe they are inspired by the summer moview Mamma mia which is set in Greece. The Grecian trend can be seen this season in everything from footwear and accessories to dresses, shirts, and even swimwear. The Grecian trend is exceptionally womanly, pure, airy, and gracious - all the things we Diva's love!

How to Look like a Greek Goddess

Part of the appeal of the Grecian and gladiator dress is their beautiful fluid fabrics in chiffon, satin and silk. They have put “feminine” back into fashion this season. Soft, front draping is ideal for concealing a fatter tummy and big hips and will gently skim the stomach area, hiding those bits which you don't want on show. If you are short, avoid looking like a sack of potatoes in a Grecian style by adding high-heels, to lengthen your silhouette. Beware of one-shoulder asymmetrical styles if you don’t have the poise to carry them off. If you tend to walk more like a duck rather than a runway model then go for a strapless or two-shoulder style.The idea in tact is soft, draped and romantic. You're going to want to go on board with ropes and sash ties to add depth and texture to sheer or satin-like fabrics whether on a dress, shirt from Ralph Lauren or camisole. The rope gives your silhouette some definition while wearing flowy fabrication; it also balances the masculinity of jeans and trousers if you choose to wear them with a Grecian style top or blouse.

Grecian clothes are supposed to glide calmly around and off the bodice to express what is known be as celestial, delicate and absolute. It also makes for a practicable style to appropriate all body sizes. And don't forget the footwear! Sandals are hot for this summer and the Grecian trend is taking over. They're comfortable and stylish and completely acceptable to wear wherever you please. You can wear them with skirts, jeans, and even with an evening get-up. You can also find Grecian inspired wedges and heels, just look for dark leather colors with buckles, weaving and plaits to get the feel. You'll be as beautiful as a goddess from the era inspiring this season's fashion!
