Greco-Roman: "Classic" Chic

The persistent popularity of the Greco-Roman influence in fashion and in movies comes from the elegance that this look exudes: the toga, the gladiator sandal, the tunic, and the asymmetrical goddess gown all encapsulate easy royal chic. While Balenciaga's gladiator sandal-boot mixes in the dominatrix look for an over-the-top interpretation of the trend, Alberta Ferretti's entire spring line and Philip Lim's easy jersey dresses are winning choices for day or night. Just be sure to avoid a head-to-toe Greco-Roman look that will make you look more costume than goddess.
