I really love the old fashion of Crete…Cretan women’s clothing included the first sewn garments known to history. Dresses were long and low-necked, with the bodice being open almost all the way to the waist, leaving the breasts exposed. Women wore high boots, slippers, sandals, and sometimes shoes with heels. Minoan women have been depicted wearing thin necklaces with long strands that could be wrapped up to three times around the neck. Women wore their hair in a variety of ways: in a ponytail hanging at the back of the neck, in long waves and plaits, or with a single or double lock curling above the ear and hanging down by the neck.
