Dress the Greek Goddess in You

If you’re one of those people who like to according to their personality, then this is the post for you. And if you’re a fashionista who’s also a budding psychologist, you’re in luck- this post is right up your alley! Greek goddesses are legendary, and their personality types are also quite famous (or infamous, in the case of some). That’s what we’ll be using in this post to determine our personality and accessorize accordingly. Don’t fear if you don’t match just one personality type but find yourself to be a combination of a few. Most of our personalities are a mix so you don’t have to put yourself in a straitjacket.

APHRODITE

APHRODITE

 

She is the Goddess of Love, Beauty, Pleasure and Eternal Youth. She is romantic and extremely beautiful. She is artistic, and supremely confident. The colours white, red, pink or violet is often associated with her. The Goddess’s sacred gems and metals are mainly pearl, gold and silver.

To dress according to Aphrodite, one could go all out Greek style with a sleek robe or full length gown in any of the colours associated with her. Red would naturally be more suitable for night time occasions whereas softer colours such as pink and light blue are better suited for the days. It’s not necessary to sport the colours from top to bottom of course- just a few dashes of the colour here and there would be perfect. As for accessories, gold tone and sterling silver jewellery are your safest bet. Again, you can go Greek style by adding a forehead band or circlet that is gold or silver toned.

ATHENA

ATHENA

 

If you’ve ever had a spur-of-the-moment yet brilliant decision, you can thank Athena for it. She’s widely known as the Goddess of Wisdom, Courage and Inspiration. She is cunning and relies on strategy to find her way through anything. She is courageous and wise. She also represented feminism. Her colours are mainly orange, yellow, emerald green and royal blue. Her sacred gems and metals are, among others, ruby, turquoise and ivory.

To dress according to Athena, one can sport accessories containing the aforementioned gems like drop earrings, chokers, or even a simple pendant or ring. One could wear a royal blue shirt and a suit to formal events, or an emerald green dress to a high society event, to invoke Athena’s personality.

PERSEPHONE

PERSEPHONE

 

She is the Goddess of Innocence and the Underworld. She is often represented by symbols associated with the coming of spring. She is best described as intuitive and spiritual. She is also insightful. Persephone women are also quite passive, and indecisive. Her colours are green, black, light blue and midnight blue.  Her sacred gems and metals are crystal, quartz, black onyx, and coral.

To dress accordingly, one could easily wear a black dress for a regal, toned down look, or clothing in midnight blue to match the mystical and intuitive part of the personality. A simple quartz watch, or coral necklace, would be the ideal accessories.

ARTEMIS

ARTEMIS

 

She is the Goddess of Nature and Hunting. She is best described as fierce and athletic. There is a bit of the wild in her and she is very straight-forward. She is independent and also values the same. She can also be quite revengeful once provoked. She is adventurous, yet distinctly feminine. Her colours are silver, white, red, green and turquoise. Her gems and metals are moonstone, silver, diamonds and iron.

To channel your inner Artemis one can dress in the hues of nature such as green or an earthy brown. An all-white suit does well to suit their independent nature, along with simple diamond earrings and a ring, leading to a completely Artemis-worthy outfit.

HERA

HERA

 

She is the Goddess of Marriage and Queen of the Gods. She has an extrovert temperament. She is regal and disciplined. Hera women and good leaders and are very organised in whatever they do. They are quite powerful, as was Hera herself which also made her the Goddess of Power. She was also inclined towards jealousy and had a quick temper. Her colours are white, royal blue, purple and grey. Her sacred gems and metals are silver, pearls, platinum and amber.

To bring out the Hera in you, you can dress formally in a grey suit. Alternatively, a combination of white and royal blue in your outfit can also bring a quirky touch to your otherwise disciplined personality. Simple silver or platinum jewellery perfectly accessorize your inner Hera.

DEMETER

DEMETER

 

She is the Goddess of the Earth, Agriculture and Fertility. Demeter women are introverts, and very kind. She is instinctively obliging and caring, and this is her most distinguishing trait. Her nature is sweet and unassuming, but when faced with problems can also turn quite nasty. Demeter types excel at perseverance and patience. Her colours are green, dark brown, and gold. Her sacred gems and metals are pearls, emerald, ivory and copper.

To dress according to Demeter, all one needs to do is dress in earthy colours. It’s that easy! A green gown with pearl details works well, as does an earthy green top paired with an earthy brown maxi skirt with gold tone jewellery.
