50’s 60’s 70’s
Skirt Showcase for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Printed Skirt Version
Quote of the Day: “There are many things in life that will catch your eye, but only a few will catch your heart…pursue those.” Anonymous
As women, we are lucky enough to have abounding options for getting dressed in the mornings (or evenings for that matter!). Yet, I find that the skirt gets relegated to the warm weather months. There are a variety of ways to wear your skirts even when the weather is chilly. One great way to do this is with the addition of a monochromatic background. Using the monochromatic background technique showcases the skirt nicely and can be done easily with tights! In this series of posts, I’ll provide a grey, black & brown background for a variety of skirts.
50’s Skirt Showcase (Grey): This skirt has a matching jacket….crazy, I know! I’ve never worn them together but I loved the colors, so I had to buy them.
Skirt: Kay Unger (thrifted) (similar here or here)~~Blouse: Banana Republic (similar here)~~Cardigan(turned backwards): DeLoux (mom’s from college)(similar here)~~Boots: Payless (similar here)~~Necklace: White Plum (here)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Bracelets: Mauzies (similar here)
60’s Skirt Showcase (Black ): The black background is probably the easiest one for us all…who doesn’t have black tights, shoes & shirts? I just love how it features the skirt so nicely.
70’s Skirt Showcase (Brown): My mother bought this fabric in Uganda and then made the skirt! What a great way to have a souvenir!!
