Grecian Style: The One Shoulder Look

We love the one shoulder look inspired by toga wearing Greek goddesses. The breezy wear is perfect for this August heat no matter where your travels take you. We especially love to wear this style near the water, where the we can soak up some sun and feel the ocean air.

Grecian Influences: Layers

Travels to Greece gave us great insight into the Grecian influences on fashion. Layers are something we love and can attribute to the ancient Greeks.

The best part about layers is they can be dressed up or down. We decided to dress ours down and wear them to cafes in Greece. Layers are perfect for Greece’s outdoor culture centered around the sunny weather.

Right Off the Runway: Grecian Drapes

This week we are focusing on the season-less aspect of fall fashion. Grecian art and culture has been  a huge fashion influence for modern day styles due to the flattering drapery inspired by ancient grecian clothing. Simplicity and function were important for Greek men and women, partially because of the summer heat in Greece. Fabric, typically a light linen, was folded, pleated, and draped around the body to create a tunic like dress that was made to keep cool but look finished. Today, we associate drapery, tunics, and even peplums, which are derived from the Greek peplos or women’s tunics, with Greece and will forever be indebted to Greece for its immense influence on modern fashion.

Just because the Greeks wore drapes for comfort and simplicity doesn’t mean the style is limited to just that. These cocktail dresses are great for a gala or night out on town.

Early Back to School looks take their que from late summer destinations…like Camp!   We love the classic with a twist style created when you meld functional “great outdoors” looks with fashion twists perfect for high school and college campuses.

Back to School: Intern Edition featuring Annie Gray Dixon

We decided to take a bit of a different approach to a “back to school post” this week. With four interns who all attend different schools, we thought we would share a little insight into their lives and of course their personal style.
Annie Gray, a native of Edenton, NC will be a rising junior at the University of North Carolina of Chapel Hill. She is SCOUT’s editorial intern this summer and is loving working for SCOUT! Her look channels Jackie O; it’s classic with a feminine twist. Boyfriend crisp white shirts with skinny jeans and flats is her “go to” uniform. Dashes of color add punctuation to her wardrobe for day into special occasion.

For a special occasion, Annie Gray loves to keep it simple but still show a pop of color and not go for your average little black dress. We love her choice of this hot pink Shoshanna dress.
