Roman Originals Show-stopping Striped Maxi Dress

I’m showing this beautiful show-stopping Roman originals Navy and White striped maxi dress today that’s a dream to wear.

Luckily last week we had the perfect weather for taking photos too. Our weather here in the UK has been yuck! I have been dying to share this dress with you, but I wanted to wait for the right weather!

As soon as I spotted this dress online I knew it would be perfect. Roman Originals have a knack of designing outfits that are so easy to wear, look amazing on and my old favorite bonus point, of course, it’s not going to date. This will stand the test of time and come out to play for years to come.

Navy and White always work well together and the difference in the width of the stripes is what I think makes this dress stand out.

All pulled together with a piece of material at the front is what makes this dress so special

I think the material is playing a very clever part. Look at the direction of the stripes. All heading straight for the waist, clever trickery! All pulled together with a piece of material is what makes this dress so special. There is an allowance for movement even though it’s fitted and doesn’t feel restrictive at all.

I’m at Syon Park Gardens today. If you’re ever in London, do look it up. A perfect place for a picnic and the scenery is beautiful.

The beautiful Lilypond. It’s a joy to sit around and hear the trickling water. It’s a very peaceful place

The water feature Statue is grand as are the buildings behind. Well worth a visit

This Roman Originals striped maxi dress could be wedding-ready in an instant!

Thinking about how the dress can be worn. I think it would be great for a wedding. Just add the perfect accessories. That’s all that would be needed. Imagine the dress with a hat, some white heels, and a more formal handbag and you’re good to go. The dress is crease resistant, another favorite plus point to me. So it would definitely last the day into evening and it will still look like you’ve just slipped into it. A white or Navy jacket or wrap could be added in case it’s chilly.

Today, I’m pairing the dress with my White tote bag and some very comfortable Silver sandals to walk in. A long Gunmetal necklace and White bangle to finish the look. Easy peasy dressing and it feels absolutely fabulous on. I wouldn’t expect anything less from Roman Originals. My other two dresses from the brand have been just as good.

Actually, the Denim dress is still available and at  bargain price of £25.00  here

Are you a lover of a striped maxi dress? I have so many stripes in my wardrobe! I didn’t realize that I was such a fan until I counted them all. I love how this striped maxi dress is different in the way that this is enhancing your figure and slimming, whereas you have to be more careful with stripes directing in other ways. Just floaty easy elegant style. I have three other striped dresses, but they don’t come anywhere near as close to how gorgeous this one is. I totally recommend it.

    You are so elegant and stunning and I adore that maxi dress. What beautiful surroundings too x

    Another Roman success Laurie. That maxi looks so good on you. The location shots are fabulous. Very romantically Roman right down to statues and fountains. Excellent choice.

    Showstopper is right, my dear. This maxi is super flattering on you and I adore the bag you’ve paired it with ~ fabulous! Xo Jonet

    You have a talent for selecting dresses that very stylish and flattering to your figure. You’ve perfectly shown how directional striping as well as the cut of a dress can make so much of a difference. Thank you for sharing your styling insights on my Fine-Whatever link up.

    You look lovely, and that color suits you well. I do love stripes but am finding with a few pounds to lose, they aren’t loving me these days. I think the way you’ve pointed out how these stripes draw attention to the waist is something I need to look for. Thanks for sharing.

    Love the dress and the setting. I think the dress could be easily dressed up or made to look more casual, and both looks would still be elegant. thanks for sharing the name of the designer.

    This pattern is stunning and so slimming. I love this.

    The design of this dress is amazing, Laurie. The stripes are perfectly done for a flattering fit. You look awesome in it.

    Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. This dress’ stripes are arranged in such a genius way that they make you look so tall. Great elongating effect!

  14. August 27, 2017 / 4:01 am

    I love the fact that the stripes are going diagonally, visually slimming the waistline and elongating the body. You look gorgeous in it Laurie, you are right it could easily be worn to a wedding. The park does look very pretty

    I adore the design and fit of this dress! It looks like it was made for you and you look stunning!

    I love that dress so much! Unfortunately, I always look very short and extra chubby in a long maxi dress. #BloggerClubUK

    Seriously that dress is incredible, Laurie!! It could work for so many outings and it fits so perfectly!!

  22. August 22, 2017 / 7:12 pm

    Super dress Laurie, looks amazing on you. You wear maxi dresses so well! Scenery very pretty too.

  23. August 22, 2017 / 6:57 pm

    Love it! And the bag! But it also looks good on you, when I wear a maxi dress I don’t feel comfortable. It doesn’t look good on me!

  24. August 22, 2017 / 5:25 pm

    Beautiful!! – I love the way the stripes diagonally point towards your waist – it’s so flattering!! Also as you pointed out it’s such a versatile dress that can be dressed up or down. Perfect!!

  25. August 22, 2017 / 2:18 pm

    Love the lines of the dress. So flattery. What a pretty spot for taking photos!
