Roman Originals Cotton White Summer Maxi Dress Outfit
For my second look in collaboration with Roman Originals (see my first red lace dress outfit here), I decided to style this beautiful Roman Originals 100% Cotton White Summer Maxi Dress. Of course you know we were in St. Ives when Adam and I shot these photos, so we decided to go for an evening shoot when the sun was setting around 9pm and there was clear sky so the sea was still sparkling blue. The beach was completely empty apart from a guy with a metal detector at the other end, so it was truly lovely to have it to ourselves. I’m not really a huge fan of the day time on the beach since it’s always so busy with people in their areas, so the evening is when I truly feel at home there and so inspired by the surroundings.
Getting to the dress, what drew me to this one the most was the long length with the crochet inspired fabric. It’s very Grecian in its style, especially with the crisp white colour, and that is something I always love the look of when there’s blue sea involved! It’s just so breezy and comfortable to wear. This one features an elasticated top half, so it clings to you in all the right places while still being comfortable, and flowing fabric from the waist down as you can see, which also contains layers underneath it so it’s not completely see through. There’s a tie that goes around the back into a bow extra detail and contouring at the waist too.
I did take this dress in a size UK 10 and I would say that it runs smaller than the red lace version I showed you last week, but that’s because of the elastic top half. I love the detailing though, it’s absolutely gorgeous and makes the perfect base for your accessories, which is why I went with browns and white to complement the white of the dress and then a pop of rainbow in a bracelet, to stand out against it. I love how the whole look turned out. It’s so different to the red dress in so many ways, so it’s always good to create completely different looks from each other. What do you think?
