Whether you are preparing for a theme party or a Greek class presentation, a toga will add authenticity to the event. For men the method of tying a toga may seem confusing but takes very little time and when done properly holds up well for many hours. To further complement this Greek clothing, try adding gladiator sandals and a laurel wreath for your head. To better preserve modesty you may wear shorts and a shirt underneath your toga, lest it come undone.


Step 1

Wrap the sheet horizontally around your waist once or twice. Depending on how sheer the fabric is you may wish to wrap it twice.

Pin the sheet at the waist, so that it will not come undone.

Pin any remaining loose bits of sheet to the body so that the toga looks neat on the body.
