Camisoles for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: Under a Dress

Quote of the day: “The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively.” Bob Marley

This series was a thought in my head from awhile ago, but a recent email from a reader brought it to fruition! Thanks Ann!

So why even have a camisole in your wardrobe? And it’s true that you certainly could live long and prosper without one. In fact, you could easily substitute a tank shirt or short sleeve t-shirt for most of these outfit suggestions. But the whole idea behind these items are modesty, I think.

There is an occasional piece of clothing that we love, but it can show a little too much skin either outright or when we bend over. That’s where wearing a camisole comes into play. I started off by showing camisoles styled under a shirt in the last post, here. Now I’m pairing them with a dress. And don’t forget to see how we wore them under a blazer.

Jodie’s (50’s) Outfit: To me a wrap dress definitely means wearing some kind of camisole or another shirt with it!

I usually wear a red cami under this dress, but decided to change things up with a teal one this time.

The dress is short sleeved, so I pulled out my burgundy cardigan for warmth.

You’ve seen these silver sneakers a ton of times, but that’s because I wear them often! These are the ones that Jude painted for me and I have instructions here to DIY your own pair.

Nancy’s (60’s) Outfit: Since we all have a black dress in our possession, and Nancy’s is a tad low in the front, I thought I’d add in a teal cami for her outfit too!!

I knitted the wrap for Nancy’s birthday this year. I tried to show the cabling on it, but my photography skills could use a little improvement!! The buttons on the wrap enable her to wear it a couple of different ways. If you’re a knitter, you can find the pattern on Ravelry, here!

For Nancy’s dress & camisole, we added in her pearls and even a brooch on the attached belt.

Charlotte’s (70’s) Outfit: Mom made her blue dress many years ago. It’s a faux wrap style. She always wears a cami under it since it dips down pretty low in the front.

I twisted her arm to wear this metallic silver cami for this look. It’s not super obvious, but more for comfort and modesty.

We added a brooch at mom’s waistline also for a little bling. Last winter the three of us showed this placement of brooches in a post you can revisit here.

And the blue bracelet is basically an antique. It was my mother’s grandmother’s bracelet, yet it still looks so stylish!

I’ve found that tank tops can work just as perfectly as a camisole—what do you think?
