The greek used to wear mainly wide draped tunics fastened with belts or braids. Similar to the one the Statue of Liberty wears. Usually Short for the men and long for women. Only the rich ones could afford crimson colored capes usually with decorated hems that were really popular at the time.

Traditionally ancient Greeks were known to wear chitons and peplos. These were tubular garment made to fit at the shoulders. The difference between these is the weight of the fabric. A chiton was much lighter than a peplos.

The classic Greek wear I would think would be like a Toga. A white fabric, that covers very little. Sequenced with gold rope/jewelry. Shoe's that lace up mid shin.
