Grecian gowns are a fashion pick

Now the Christmas party season is over you’re probably fed up with sequins and tired of putting on that failsafe little black dress, which is the perfect excuse to treat yourself to something completely different.

One of the best ways to look glamorous on a night-out this season is by sporting an elegant Grecian-style robe.

The flattering long length and ruched detailing mean this type of gown will suit all body types, with its wearers looking the epitome of chic.

At Italian label Salvatore Ferragamo’s Spring/Summer 2011 show models looked like Greek Goddesses as they took to the podium in floor-length Grecian gowns in stunning regal colours such as navy blue.

If you feel like trawling through vintage stores too, French fashion house Chanel has been heavily inspired by Grecian fashion in the past, with some of their most iconic robes being 1930s-style takes on the robe. If you manage to hunt down one of their slinky gold and white dresses you will be guaranteed to be the belle of the ball.

The beauty of the Grecian robe is that it often features a fitted waist, with material flaring out and falling smoothly over the hips.

Ladies who are larger on top should opt for dresses with a more simplistic neckline, whereas those with a small décolletage can boost cleavage with a more ruffled style.
