50’s 60’s 70’s
Cold Weather outerwear for the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s: fur collars
Quote of the day: “Nothing is particularly hard if you divide it into small jobs.” Henry Ford
Of course, by this age you have many a plain colored jacket that is thought of as a basic since it goes with everything (or so they say)! And even though I’m a sucker for a exquisite pattern, most of the heavy duty coats are without embellishment. Considering this, a fur collar is an easy way to gussy up the simple overcoat. This is a built in pizzazz if your coat comes with a fur collar, but if not you can add your own with a fur neck scarf wrap. Another great tip to spruce up a stark coat is with a leather belt (see Cold Weather Outerwear 2) or a decorative scarf. If you worry about the scarf getting lost, you can safety pin one area of it to the coat for reassurance. More examples of winter coats on Cold Weather Outerwear 1.
50’s Cold Weather Outerwear: This beautiful frock actually was my mothers, thus I consider it vintage (ha ha)! I love wearing this when we travel downtown on the light rail since it buttons all the way up to my chin and the A-Line design accommodates any underpinnings!
60’s Cold Weather Outerwear: This parka is really a ski jacket but the fur collar gives it special glam!
70’s Cold Weather Outerwear: My mom is wearing a fabulous overcoat that used to be my husband’s mother’s coat—don’t you just love hand me downs! It’s nice because the fur collar is removable! I think it’s charming to add a shot of color with the red gloves.
