Grecian Dresses: How to Wear this Perfect Style Dress

Updated on June 25, 2015

Grecian Dresses, Look Like A Greek Goddess

Grecian dresses have been buzzing in the world of fashion this year more than ever. They are elegant, flattering and can be worn by any body type. Grecian style dresses come in a variety of colors, fits, styles, and lengths. This style of dress is elegant enough for formal events but can be worn for various occasions. Date night? A grecian dress will show off your fashion sense while offering just enough sexiness without going overboard. Wear one in the cooler months with leggings and boots and a snuggly fitting cardigan.

Check out below to find out which grecian dresses will flatter your body shape and style!


Wear A Grecian Dress With A Ruched Front To Hide Problem Areas

A grecian dress with ruched detailing is the most forgiving style dress you can wear and is perfect for any body type.

This style has a sexy cut with significant layers that cover flaws and enhance any body type. Chose a fabric that is substantial in weight as it will drape very nicely on your body; thinner fabrics tend to cling and allow no disguising of lines or problem areas.


Waist-Minimizing Grecian Dresses

Since grecian dresses come in so many cuts and styles it is not surprising that there is the perfect grecian dress that combines impressive grandeur with a waist-minimizing design.

The best technique to disguise a thick waist while wearing a dress is to chose a style that either raises, lowers or eliminates the waistline. A drop-waist grecian dress, which hits somewhere around the hipbones, or empire waist grecian dresses which have a raised waist are great choices.

This grecian dress combines a flattering empire waistline with forgiving flowing fabric, a perfect choice for someone who wants to minimize their waistline.


Grecian Dresses to Enhance a Small Bust

Enhance a smaller bust with a ruffled grecian dress. A ruffled neckline adds volume to the chest and gives the appearance of a more full bust. Other embellishments along the neckline offer the same illusion of a full bust.

Another option to consider when picking out the perfect grecian dress that will enhance the size of your bust is a drapey fitted neckline. This delicate look works best for women with a petite bust and offers an additional beautiful feminine touch.

Don't forget to accessorize your grecian dress with an elegant Tory Burch clutch.


Grecian Dresses For A Pear-Shaped Body

If you want to try to balance out a pear-shaped body it's best to distract from your hips and legs by drawing attention to your neck and face. You can do this by locating a grecian dress with the right neckline, waistline, and strategically placed detailing.

A grecian dress with wide-set straps will help to visually widen the chest and shoulders and balance out your bottom-half. Opt for scooped, draped, v'd, rounded or squared necklines; a grecian dress that has a lower and wider neckline will emphasize your bust and draw attention to your face, balancing out a heavier bottom. A halter top that ties at the neck is another great option and will give the shoulders the appearance of width they need to balance out your hips and thighs.

When choosing the perfect grecian dress, choose an empire waste or a wrap dress which will flow over your hips. Emphasize your small waistline with a grecian dress with fitted waist that flares out at the hips and falls smoothly.

Another technique to draw attention away from your bottom-half if you are pear shaped is to find a grecian dress with some detail at the top. Avoid detail around the hips and skirt area such as ruffles or pleats as they will only add bulk and draw unnecessary attention to that area.

Where to Find the Best Grecian Dresses

Being that grecian dresses are so prominent in world of fashion, it is no surprise that they are more than easy to find. Check out stores such as Nieman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Bluefly, Macys, Express, TJ MAXX, etc. It is easy to find grecian dresses on sale if you are more of a bargain shopper, especially with the change of the seasons. Another brand worth checking out is Warehouse dresses as they offer several grecian style dresses.
