If you’re mourning the passing of Summer (or anticipating it – hello to those in the Southern hemisphere!), you may be thinking about getting out your winter staples and stowing the pretty dresses away for the year. Down from the attic come the chunky sweaters, the comforting jeans and thick socks. You do not, however, need to wave goodbye to the notion of looking feminine and glamorous in floaty chiffon dresses.
Grecian style pieces are perfect for layering up and providing an alternative to the ‘boring’ jeans and jumper combo that is the easy go to outfit in the colder months. It’s easy to get into the rut of wearing the same knits day in day out, but these pieces can be put to better use by pairing them with dressier items.
Adoring the look of the Military trend this Fall, but too sad to say goodbye to your chiffon sundresses? Layer up a cream coloured Grecian dress with a camouflage jacket, and finish off the set of clothing with combat shoes and gold accessories. The juxtaposition of Military and Grecian is compelling exactly because of its incongruity; playing with different textures and mixing a color palette shows you know how to take pleasure in your style, and keeps your summer items relevant.

Of course in Fall and Winter, you’ll need to accessorize with more than tan and strappy sandals. A cosy shrug – or perhaps a leather coat for an edgier look – in a complementary color help keep the ensemble weather relevant but also ensure the focus is on your wonderful dress.
When it comes to shoes, you can still wear your open toed heels if that’s what you prefer, but we’d recommend a quality pair of nude footless tights so that you’re not either freezing or left with the toe of your tights being clearly visible. It is possible, however, to pair more contemporary shoe styles with the classic Grecian dress, and carry off the look. A clompy pair of Jeffrey Campbell boots brings a fierceness to your feminine ensemble, and wedges will lend some comfort to your step. With the Leather/Bondage trend of Fall 2012, seen at Alexander Wang and Givenchy, you can accessorize with belts and harnesses for a look that’s sexy and chic, or bring some darkness with your make up; a plum lipstick says gothic glamor like nothing else.
