Long Vest for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Casual Version
Quote of the day: “You can accomplish by kindness what you cannot do by force.” Publius Cornelius Tacitus
Many of us in these age groups have a vest or two in our closets. I certainly think vests are a great topper over your shirts to be used in your dressing routine. It can pull together an outfit by adding quite a bit of interest. This series will focus on the long vests. My definition to make it “long” would be hanging down by your rump! I tried to style the three of us using a variety of these vests. My vest is a collared navy one, Nancy’s is her fur vest, and mom’s is a collar free brown vest that was part of a suit. For this section of casualness, I had us all don casual bottoms—I am wearing a denim skirt, Nancy is wearing her leggings, and mom is wearing her mint jeans!
50’s Long Vest: I love the idea of adding this vest over my sweatshirt…it makes me feel casual yet somewhat refined!

60’s Long Vest: Nancy wore this same vest in our fur series (starting here). Thus it’s a perfect example of how versatile the fur vest can be, having it in your wardrobe.
70’s Long Vest: Mom’s brown vest really pops against the mint jeans. Since they are lightweight jeans, she could easily wear a pair of hosiery under them for warmth.
