Horizontal Stripes for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Casual Version
Quote of the day: “Dressing well is a form of good manners.” Tom Ford
I think that stripes were made for casual days! Back in the medieval times, the pattern was seen as evil so only prisoners, clowns, prostitutes, hangmen and all the condemned wore them! Luckily things have drastically changed! The horizontal stripes come in many widths and colors as shown in our examples. We also wore these same garments styled for a work day here.
50’s Horizontal Strip (Jacket): If you know me personally, you’ll have seen these shoes…they are truly my go-to’s lately (and they were under $35)! And I wore my jacket as a top under the vest!
60’s Horizontal Stripe (Sweater): These were Nancy’s first pair of “skinny” jeans and she absolutely loves them. I think they look great with this bulkier sweater!
70’s Horizontal Stripe (Top): My mom made this necklace (of course, she did—haven’t I proven that she’s Martha Stewart’s sister?)
Top: Mom made it (similar here)~~Jeans: LOFT (similar here)~~Cardigan: Alfani (similar here or here)~~Shoes: (similar here)~~Necklace: Mom made (you can make this—take a rock from outside & tie string around it—glue a couple areas & tada!)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Bracelet: (similar here and here)
