Seasonal trends come and go, and we love picking up the latest pieces so we can fill our fashionista hearts; but that really does take a toll on our bursting wardrobes. This season, we’ve resolved to picking 5 favourites that will take us through this season and beyond.
To choose five key pieces, look for products you think could become a wardrobe hero; essentials you can wear year in, year out without looking dated. This year, we looked to Roman Originals to choose our timeless favourites to suit every sensational lady over 50.
A true wardrobe staple, the LBD is an essential for work, casual events or chic cocktail evenings. This year, we just love the Black Bow Detail Dress. As you’ve read in our dresses with sleeves blog, sleeves are a key trend for this year. Like us, many women of 50-plus don’t like to show their arms, so these sheer ¾ sleeves perfectly blend coverage with a touch of party style. The knee length look is fabulous for showing just the perfect amount of leg, and would look chic with your favourite court heels or comfortable ballerinas, and the neckline would perfectly suit a dainty necklace for an extra touch of subtle glam. However, our favourite part of this dress is the fabulous bow to the bust. Bows stay on-trend year after year, and this stunning oversized design will perfectly disguise any tummy!
If there’s one thing we’re happy to show off, it’s our shoulders. Cold shoulder tops are fabulous dressed up or down, making them ideal for dinner dates and shopping trips alike, so Roman’s floral piece became an instant hit for our wardrobes. The sweet botanical print will never go out of style, and frill shoulders add a sophisticated touch to a classically styled top.
Tapered hem trousers are extremely adaptable, so a statement pair is a perfect addition to your wardrobe. With simple styling adorned with the key frill detailing to the pockets and a sophisticated fit, these royal blue trousers are fabulous for work and stylish evenings out. We’d team this colourway with black loafers for work, and vamp them up at night with our favourite pair of heels.
Looking for the perfect trouser outfit but struggling to find something that looks great together? Jumpsuits are a simple yet elegant solution to your problem. This jumpsuit combines simple straight leg trousers with a chiffon overlay top for a chic party look. The chiffon is embellished with an elegant sequin pattern, and the loose fabric covers up your arms and stomach; perfect for us!
Lace dresses are truly iconic; they’re feminine and sophisticated, and can easily be dressed up or down. However, a real wardrobe hero for us is the lace jacket! Pop it on over jeans, trousers, skirts or dresses, use it as an extra layer in chilly weather or add a touch of chic femininity to a plain dress or comfortable leggings. We just love Roman’s lace jacket in the pink colourway for a pop of colour. The smart silhouette makes this pretty blazer ideal for work or for smartening up your favourite jeans, and even looks great with your favourite cruise or occasionwear; making it a true wardrobe staple.
We hope you just adore our Roman wardrobe hero picks, but we’d love to know what your essentials are too!
