9780486445274: Women's Costume of the Ancient World: 700 Full-Color Illustrations (Dover Fashion and Costumes)

One of the most extensive pictorial collections of its kind, this volume of 700 full-color illustrations provides an authentic and fascinating glimpse of what fashionable women were wearing more than 2,000 years ago.
Like many of today's young ladies, fashionably dressed women of ancient Egypt favored pointed sandals and dresses of transparent materials. Off-the-shoulder gowns were popular, as was costume jewelry. Assyrian females liked fringed accents on their tunics and gowns, while Greek and Roman ladies of fashion were partial to loose robes that frequently revealed upper and lower limbs. Head coverings from helmets and shawls to wide-brimmed hats were de rigueur. Organized according to region--Egyptian, Assyrian, Greek, Roman, and Greco-Roman--the finely detailed drawings are accompanied by brief identifying captions.
A valuable reference for costume historians and designers, this extensive pictorial collection will delight fashion enthusiasts as well.
