At the time of marriage, a Roman woman gained the right to wear the stola, an undyed wool tunic worn over her other tunic(s). The stola was a symbol of marriage, but wasn't terribly flattering, so many women opted not to wear them. However, the long cloak draped around the body called a palla was very popular. The palla could also be pulled up to cover the head.
