History of Art: Architecture

Since I got in my program at college, I fell in love with one particular class: History of Art. This 3 hours class is a delight, I can't even describe it. My favorite topic is architecture and sculpture, even thought I like paintings too. Anyway, I decided to get fashioned inspired by my class, starting with architecture.

Antic Greece

Antiquity, while it is not the first period including art, is surely the beginning of the grandiose architecture and sculpture. One of the most beautiful temple of Greece is the temple of Erechtheion, with its gorgeous Caryatid statues. Antiquity is all about researching harmony in the lines and greating the gods and godesses. Erechtheion temple is the exception of the harmony, due to the many parts built together. So here is my inspirationnal outfit for this temple.

During summer, the most pleasant thing to do is wearing light dresses like this one. The dress looks like a prayer dress of Antiquity, like we can see in the movie "Troy". Gladiator sandals go well with that bohemian grecian style, and the earrings reminded me of the column volutes. With this style, a nice bun, braids or just loose hair would be perfect. And keep the makeup really light!

Antiquity is synonyme of drapes and softness. That yellow dress looks like the Caryatid statue itself, with the pretty flowers on top and the marble effect. The laurier bracelet refers to the nature engravings of the temples. The shoes are another wink with their ruffles. The color gives more punch to the outfit. Make sure to have your hair up with that kind of dress, that we can see the pretty details around the neck. I know that those outfits seem to apply only to summer time, but it's because Greece is a hot country so that's why I was more inspired by summer items.

Did you like the outfits? How would you get inspired by Antic Greece? Let me know in the comments please!
