Horizontal Stripes for Women in their 50's, 60's, & 70's.

Horizontal Stripes for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Dressy Version

Quote of the day: “No one knows you better than you. Except maybe your mother.” Lea Michele

If you’re a regular reader of the blog, then you know that for this post I’m going to style the same horizontal striped garments for this blog, our third category. First we wore them for a day at the office (here) and then for a day hanging out (here). It may not be an easy task to dress up some of our striped items, but silk, glitter and mesh along with some leg showing apparel can usually do the trick. It may seem silly to try to make the same items work for such different categories, but I’ve always loved a challenge!

50’s Horizontal Strip (Jacket): I don’t think of my jacket as dressy, so I threw it on over a silk dress & went with a gauzy scarf.

60’s Horizontal Stripe (Sweater): Talk about layering! We put Nancy’s sweater over a dress and then topped it with her glittery jacket!

  • Loving all the stripe love! Everyone looks fab!

  • I love how you take one item and show how it can be worn for different looks and thereby making your wardrobe work super efficiently. Because the reality is, how many ordinary women have endless new outfits? We don’t. We have to get creative, restyle, recreate, rediscover. Much more interesting to do. And playing with textures and metallics gives you even more choices to wear your stripes!

    • You are quite perceptive, Jacqueline!! When I started reading blogs, I wanted to see many ways to style a certain item (my red jeans, for example), so that’s why I do it this way! Thanks for always checking in!!

  • I love all theme but my favorite is 60’s horizontal stripes !
    It’s a great look “ever green”
