Glitter for the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s: the dressier version

Quote of the day:  “One detour doesn’t cancel your destination.” Sarah Jakes

Now we’ll take those same glitter pieces from Styling Discussion 1 and make them part of a dressier outfit.  The innate characteristic of glitter is ritziness so making glitter pieces dressier is not very difficult!

50’s Glitter (dark grey shirt)..This could be a great outfit to wear to the office.  Since the jacket button stance is high, you can barely see the shirt underneath which makes the glitter office appropriate. After work you could go from office to an evening event without an entire change of clothes, just by removing the jacket.

60’s Glitter (skirt)..”What a great outfit to wear to a play” I said to Nancy.  Because she is short-waisted, Nancy doesn’t love to tuck in shirts.  However, it is a cleaner look than leaving the blouse untucked as shown in this instance.  Besides this look is a classic style from the Mad Men era!   With that said, the booties give the outfit a more modern look but one could always wear pumps.

70’s Glitter Style (sweater): Notice how the black skirt and boots put all the emphasis on this gorgeous sweater!  With the sweater being the star, I left the accessories minimal. This glitter sweater is a good size for my mom…not too tight or too loose.  As we all know, the vertical stripes are a great optical illusion!

    Nancy’s outfit is a stunner head to toe. Love your shoes and Charlotte’s earrings.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Nancy will love to read this Kathleen—and this is an outfit that she wouldn’t normally wear because she hates tucking in her shirts! But I think it looks nice for a change!!
