Matching Set for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: Worn Together

Quote of the day: “The only preparation for tomorrow is the right use of today.” God’s Little Instruction Book

Ahhh…the matching set.  A skirt (or pants) made out of the same material/design as it’s top partner.  It’s not a suit but a collection that was designed to go together.  Are there any in your closet?  It was quite the trend in the 1970’s and I can see the appeal—it’s like a dress where you don’t have to think about what to wear with it! In fact, I just saw the matching set being touted as a “two-piece dress.” But it can also come across as too “put together” or “matchy-matchy” as the young kids say! I tried to modernize these matching set looks with accessories.  I used a thin scarf for my set, a thick necklace for Nancy’s & a black polka dot belt for mom’s outfit.

50’s Matching Set: Thanks to Whorl Boutique in Denver, I was able to participate in this post  because I did not have a matching set in my closet. I would normally not buy a crop top, but the skirt is high waisted, so I decided to gamble and get it!

60’s Matching Set: We planned to wear a red cardigan with this ensemble…but you know how plans go, right? We shortened the skirt and took in 2 inches from the waist to make it less overwhelming.

70’s Matching Set: I had mom wear a black polka dot belt with her top & skirt. We then added a cardigan since the shirt is short sleeved. Mom’s necklace is a shoe clip on a black cord (you, too, can make your own jewelry in seconds).
