Spring Weddings for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: Wearing Pants
Quote of the day: “Nothing endures but change.” Heraclitus
For the third post in our spring wedding series, I broached the possibility of wearing pants to this type of affair. I admit, this wouldn’t be my first choice, but I realize there are many women who don’t wear skirts and dresses. And many women have those silkier trousers which actually can work for such ceremonies. (My mother thought I was crazy for styling this option–help me out— has anyone ever worn pants to a wedding?). You can check out my interpretations of a daytime spring wedding (here) and evening spring wedding (here). Again I stayed away from the black colored choices—I’m trying to keep it springy!
50’s Outfit: Maybe I cheated, but I went with my culottes. The red bag was added for my pop of color.
Culottes: WHBM (here now a deal!)~~Cardigan: Line (similar here)~~Top: Ann Taylor (similar here)~~Boots: Payless (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Bracelet: (similar here)~~Purse: (similar here)
60’s Outfit: I think the lace and pearls add the touch of elegance to this ensemble.
Pants: Chicos (similar here)~~Blazer: I.N. (similar here)~~Top: H & M (similar here)~~Shoes: Caparros (similar here)~~Necklace: (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Bracelet: Mauzies (similar here)~~Clutch: (similar here)
70’s Outfit: Even though mom was adamant that she would never wear pants to a wedding, I think this is such a pretty look!
