Black & White for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: With Metallics
Quote of the day: “The things that will destroy America are prosperity at any price, peace at any price, safety first instead of duty first and love of soft living and the get-rich-quick theory of life.” Theodore Roosevelt
Black & white could certainly be touted as a classic combination by itself, which is how I started this series many months ago (here). But since both black & white are neutral, it seems like the possibilities for color mixtures added with it are countless! Metallics are a fun addition, so I used a gold turtleneck for my picture. For Nancy we added bright silver accessories. And mom wore her silver tank top. I used these exact black & white items with pastels (here) and bright colors (here).
50’s Black & White (Dress): Layering a turtleneck under the dress is a great way to get more use out of it in the colder months! The turtleneck has a gold shimmer throughout it.
60’s Black & White (Sweater): Nancy’s metallics come from her shoes & necklace. I think accessories can be the best part of the outfit at times!
70’s Black & White (Shirt): Mom’s metallic tank top is actually reversible, so can be worn showing this silver or on the other side it’s bronze—what a brilliant idea!
