Women in Ancient Greece wore garments usually made of wool. These pieces were folded at one end and then wrapped around the wearer and also pinned with fibulas. Women wore chitons, a garment that was unisex. A peplos was also worn by women which was very similar to the chiton. A himation was also added for coverage and a veil was worn by the woman if she was going out in public. The veil was worn as a symbol of modesty and respect.
