50’s 60’s 70’s
Leggings for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: With a Long Cardigan
Quote of the day: “A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.” Joan O’Brien
The long cardigan is also a nice companion to the leggings. By long cardigan, I’m implying one that covers the tush (and possibly even half the thighs). I’m not entirely sure why I’m not comfortable having my rear exposed in my leggings, yet it’s okay with my skinny jeans….possibly the pockets make all the difference? Another way to feel more covered up is to wear tall boots with your leggings! Either way, it usually ends up being a nice proportion since the leggings are on the tighter side and the cardigan has more volume. Don’t forget to check out Leggings with a Tunic (here)
Jodie’s (50’s) Outfit: I bought this cardigan to wear more as a jacket or coat, but it’s perfect for this post and adding the belt gives it some structure! I added the scarf because I usually crave some color in my outfits!
Nancy’s (60’s) Outfit: This cardigan is perfect for pairing with a bright colored t-shirt. Do you recognize it from the black & white series? We even used the process of layering 2 necklaces!

Charlotte’s (70’s) Outfit: These mountain boots are another great footwear that works perfectly with leggings! Pairing them with the plaid shirt makes you almost believe she could go out hiking…ha ha!
Thanks for visiting my styling blog! Do you feel the need to have your tush covered when wearing leggings?
