White for the Lower Half for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Dressy Look
Quote of the day: “What I thought was an end turned out to be a middle.” Tony Hoagland
Going out for a night on the town or even just a relaxing dinner, is a great excuse to spruce up one’s summer look. Many of our white pieces are lightweight and thus perfect for the hotter weather. I showed examples of wearing white for the lower trunk area that would be office appropriate here.
50’s White for the Lower Half: Thanks to Stacey for giving me this dress awhile ago!! I had mom shorten it and then it was perfect.
I knitted this wrap many years ago and even added beads on the ends (can you see the beads in the up-close picture?). Even though beads are a pain to knit with, the nice thing about them is they add weight to the wrap and keep the ends in place better!
60’s White for the Lower Half: Ok, Ok…so Nancy’s skirt is not exactly white, but I call close enough. It’s actually the skirt of a suit, but here’s a great way to get more usage our of it.
She bought this pendant after my dad passed since it looks like a “J” (his name was Joe). Don’t you just love the sentimental pieces?
70’s White for the Lower Half: I love a print shoe with two solids pieces of clothing! To me, it adds some color interest to the ensemble.
Of course, mom has pretty much every color of footwear, so we could have mixed it up with a pink shoe or a green shoe. What would have been your preference?
It’s such a joy to know you’re reading my blog….thanks!
And here are some white (somewhat) dressy pieces for the lower half (not as inexpensive as usual since I rarely want a see through piece!)
