Is your project for ancient history? 

I loved ancient hisory in college, in fact, I took so much, I almost could have majored in it!  For the Roman, Greek and Egyptian ancient history, much of what they wore were tunic style (or toga depending on the region) garments.  The more importance you had in society, the finer the 'accessories' you wore.  Their clothing was made of cotton (like our linen today, but much finer) - and could come in a variety of natural colors (white is common here because when textile manufacturers became popular it was easier to pull through the machines and was much stronger than the color varieties) off white, a 'red' color (that looks more like orange to me), green, etc.

Hope that helps.

Gotta love the Costumer's Manifesto - I use them a lot for renfest and cosplay stuff, but their historical sections are great, too.
