1. Focal Point

The lace bodice of this dress highlights the True Romantic Focal Point. A choker necklace of curved rings would also have been effective.

3. Fabric

This beautiful lace offers texture, detail, and a balanced or non-draping weave. It is also glamorous and medium in weight, perfect for the True Romantic.

2. Ornament

The hat, gloves and necklace match the lace in both colour and in weight, creating a wonderfully rhythmical repetition.

4. Line

The dropped shoulder extends the Line, creating a beautifully strong Omega silhouette. The large scale of the lace and hat are also appropriately Omega.

1. Focal Point

The dropped neckline extending across the shoulders clearly shows the Focal Point of the True Romantic. The gathered fabric arrests the eye.

3. Fabric

The textured panels and gathered netting provide beautiful texture. The monochromatic outfit gives the necessary high glamour of the True Romantic.

2. Ornament

The gathered tulle is great, and all the accessories are rhythmically matching. A less rigid collar necklace would have worked even better.

4. Line

The Omega Line or width at the shoulders is reiterated beautifully in the wide and wide-set shoulder straps, and in the wide curved panels in the dress.

1. Focal Point

The wide, somewhat open, fur collar of this coat has the strength to mark the True Romantic Focal Point of the chest.

3. Fabric

The soft balanced weave of the Fabric of this coat also has a lovely texture. The wide belt offsets the slight heaviness of the Fabric.

2. Ornament

The matching gloves, belt and purse provide the rhythmical Ornament necessary to this Style. Note the repetition of the horizontal in the purse and belt.

4. Line

The necessary Omega Line is shown in the open collar, wide belt and slightly dropped underarm. Here, the Omega silhouette is stronger in the bodice than the skirt.

1. Focal Point

The sweetheart neckline is an ideal vehicle to highlight the True Romantic Focal Point. A necklace without dangles would distract less from the Focal Point.

3. Fabric

Solids, rather than prints, are wonderful for the True Romantic. This soft mid-weight fabric would be even better with a light texture and a balanced weave.

2. Ornament

True Romantic Ornaments must be packed with glamour, such as the matching jewelry and fur stole shown here. The necklace is worn appropriately high.

4. Line

The True Romantic carries a high Omega or open silhouette, although either the bodice or the skirt must predominate. Here, the full skirt is stronger.
