The Romans thought only savages wore trousers! Girls wore longer tunics with woollen belts, tied around the waist. To keep warm out doors, girls and boys wore woollen cloaks that were fastened at the neck. Many people wore shoes made from leather. If you came from a wealthy family, you could start wearing an adult toga when you were 14. A toga was a long piece of woollen cloth that you wore over your tunic. You kept it for special occasion. When girls got married, they were allowed to wear a stola. This was a long tunic fastened on the shoulders with clasps.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Aimee Hutton                                                                                                                                                                                              4M
