Horizontal Stripes for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Business Version

Quote of the day: “I truly believe that style comes from having a great eye, not a massive wallet.” Dorrie Jacobson of a Senior Style Bible

Horizontal stripes are one of those prints over which there is much controversy. How many times have you read that they make us look fat? I’m a firm believer that it’s not so much the stripes that make us look bigger, but the fit of the clothing item. And, then again, if I like something, I’m going to wear it (because usually if I like it, it looks halfway decent)! It looks like I should have titled this post “Stripes & Grey”…at least I’m consistent when I put together our outfits…ha ha! Needless to say, I found all different horizontal stripes for us to wear: a jacket, a sweater and a top! Wearing them for a work day is this post’s theme.

50’s Horizontal Strip (Jacket): I love a silk blouse for almost any occasion! And these shoes add a little bit of fun color!

60’s Horizontal Stripe (Sweater): A crew neck sweater doesn’t seem very professional, but I think the collared shirt under it and necklace on top makes it so.

70’s Horizontal Stripe (Top): Covering up a casual top with a jacket is an easy way to dress it up. Mom is not a lover of tan & grey together, yet I love it—-you?
