A Dress 3 Ways for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: (As a Shirt)
Quote of the day: “Mistakes are better learned from than punished.” Raymond Vath, M.D.
Now I’ll take the same dress that we wore alone (here) and then wore to look like a skirt (here), and style it so it’s observed as a shirt. All three of us in this example could have donned a black skirt which I’m sure everyone owns. However, to make it more interesting, I decided to add some color assortment to the skirt selection. Would you have liked it better with all black skirts? Again, you may think me the craziest of souls (which I’m not denying) by putting a skirt over my dress, but why not? Just think how this increases the options of outfits in your closet. This is also a good trick if your dress is too short for comfort or for a shift dress that needs some waist enhancement—just sayin’!
50’s Dress 3 Ways: This suede skirt has been with me for 30 years. It was a present from mom in college and has aged nicely.
60’s Dress 3 Ways: Since Nancy is more short waisted, we pulled the skirt down slightly to make her look more in proportion. If you try this trick, you might need to pin the skirt in place depending on it’s slipperiness.
70’s Dress 3 Ways: We added 3 items of green to this outfit to give it some pizzazz. The green in the dress is not quite the same, but I really like the combination.
