    Clothing There are four main costume silhouettes, which existed in ancient Greece. These are Cretan Minoan, Mycenaean, Archaic, and Classical, each named after the era during which it appeared. Their clothing represented the simple life that they lived. Their clothing required minimum sewing which could be easily folded and put away. An attire that was considered unisex was the tunic. It was worn with a belt draped over the body in a way that it covered the left arm leaving the right arm bare. The chiton’s length varied according to the wearer’s status. It could extend to the knee or the ankle. It could also be fastened with pins or brooches (fibulae) on the left shoulder or on both shoulders, or be dyed, embroidered, or edged with decorative elements. The Cretan Minoan attire included a variety of complex garments that were made in a way that modern garments are made. Skirts and blouses were shaped to the body of the wearer. Women laced themselves in corsets that exposed the breasts and wore flounced skirts stretched over hoops, probably the first type of crinoline. Mycenaean costume was influenced by Minoan fashion, yet it was also quite primitive. The primary garments of Archaic Greek were the tunic and shawl. In the Classical era, fabric was softer and draping became more sophisticated so that clothes fell naturally over the body. Clothing was meant to be so subtle that it was difficult to differentiate between the body and the cloth. The two most common fabrics in ancient Greece were the wool and linen, which were woven into different textures, some thin and loose, other thick and heavy. The import of silk from China began in Hellenistic times, but silk was more rarely used for it was expensive. By the 5th century Greeks began to dye all types of garments. Cloaks were dyed in dark and earthy colors, women’s clothes were made in floral shades. Numerous types of decoration were used. Gold and silver, as well as yellow, indigo, violet, red, and purple threads were sewn into garments. Garment borders were dye-painted. Motifs from architecture and vase painting were also used in clothes.
