Art and History of Fashions

In general fashions from the ancient Greek and Roman periods and before were simple, as clothing expressed practical function over stylistic form. Overall, women's clothing loose and flowing, never tight-fitting. Tunics, often covered with layers of draped fabric, were worn by both men and women.

The excess material was allowed to fall freely, giving the impression of a short cape. Pins used for fastening the shoulders of the peplos were originally open pins with decorated heads, but they were later replaced by fibulae or brooches.  Substances were ordinary and for the most part unadorned.

The most basic garment for women of ancient Greece, for example, was the "Doric peplos," jointly by the beginning of the sixth century BC Made from a rectangle of woven wool, the Doric peplos measured about six meters wide and about eighteen centimeters longer than the height of the medium only to shoulder length. The substance was on the carrier, with the excess material folded over the top and fastened on both shoulders.
This was the general rule in the Western world. Especially during the
Archaic period, clothing was usually white or off-white, and theordinary
was forbidden to wear red theaters or public places.

By the fifth century, however, clothing began to have a broader spectrum
of colors. In places like China, India and Africa, women are adorned with
colorful fabrics and ornamentation in comparison with the western

China, for example, began the development of silk weaving and
embroidery techniques during the Ancient era, and used this information
in their clothing design and manufacturing. While clothing may be simpler
and women of all cultures is adorned with jewelry such as earrings,
bracelets, necklaces and rings fashioned from earth materials such as
stones and gems. Cosmetics were also used by women of antiquity. As
for her, women are often their hair braided or kept their heads covered by
fabric draped over the face as a hood.
