Plaid for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Casual Version

Quote of the day: “Hope, deceiving as it is, serves at least to lead us to the end of our lives by an agreeable route.” FranAois de la Rochefoucauld
The plaid pattern is one that is quite common especially in the winter months!  There are many variations of the plaid including windowpane check, tartan and glen plaid.  My guess is many of you have at least one plaid winter scarf that is hiding in your coat closet!  I’ll be highlighting a skirt, pants and a scarf in these next 3 posts!  In my opinion, plaid is innately informal so I’ll start with the easiest looks–the casual version.

50’s Outfit (Pants): I have to admit, I never thought I’d purchase plaid pants until I found these at Velvet Wolf in Downtown Littleton, Colorado.  They are fur lined and considering I’m always cold, I figured it was a match made in heaven! And so it is, I love them–although I still feel very conspicuous in them.

60’s Outfit (Scarf): The plaid scarf is a perfect way to add some interest to a shirt!  It’s also a great layering piece for warmth….the really nice thing about it, is you can easily remove it if you get too heated (as opposed to an extra shirt underneath–much harder to remove in public..haha).

70’s Ourfit (Skirt): An easy way to casualize a plaid skirt is with a sweatshirt and riding boots!  And, of course, my mom picked her owl earrings to wear!!

    These are my favorites of the 3 plaid looks. So nicely put together. Your sweater is a beauty. Charlotte’s creations are both so elegant. The trim on Nancy’s sweater is a nice touch. Please keep and wear those darling plaid slacks – the cut, the fit, the colors are perfect. You look great in them in all 3 looks.

      Thanks Kathleen!!
      Unless we move to a warmer state, I’ll probably keep these plaid pants since they have a fur lining!! I think I wore them for days in a row this winter (just not on the blog)!

  • Plaid has been my favorite print all season! Those pants are adorable and they are fur lined too! Perfect for the sub zero temps we have been having!

      I have to admit, the fur is probably the ONLY reason I bought them!! I do love a good plaid, but these pants seemed a little young for me….but you only live once, right?

  • Darlene Fadem

    I’m obsessed with plaid…I would totally wear those plaid pants! Love the scarf too.

    • Thanks for saying that about the pants…I still cringe a little when I see the pictures…at least they keep my tush warm!!!
