Lace for the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s: the Dressy Version
Quote of the day: “These then are my last words to you. Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact.” William James
Did you know that lace was so expensive to make before the 19th century, therefore it was thought of as a luxurious item? Now with mass production, we can obtain it for a steal. Considering its more delicate nature, I think we still tend to consider it as a more formal element. Thus making it part of your dressy outfit is relatively easy. And there is some for everybody….I have a full outfit, half outfit and just a peek in the last one. I paired lace to wear for casual outings in the first styling discussion (here).
50’s Outfit (Dress): A dress is the easiest way to get gussied up since all you have to add is shoes and accessories! This necklace was given to me by a friend, and there is even a matching belt!
60’s Outfit (Top): Putting this lace top over a dress is a great way to create a two piece look. This is a great idea for remixing outfits when travelling so you don’t have to take as many items in your suitcase.
70’s Outfit (Tank top): This tank is perfect under a jacket to add a peek of lace. The advantage of a tank top is it’s not too bulky or warm since it’s sleeveless.
