Plaid for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Dressy Version

Quote of the day: “Our ideals are our better selves.” Amos Bronson Alcott

Dressing up your plaid for more formal occasions can be tricky, depending on the item.  One easy way to do this is with shine & sparkle, ruffles or silk—heck, maybe even show off some skin (I’m talking wearing a dress here, people)!  Of course it all depends on your definition of dressy and where you’re going.  Since Denver tends to be more casual, even in it’s formal areas, this is my interpretation!  Plaid 1 and Plaid 2 show you other formulas of tartan outfits with these same pieces!

50’s Outfit (Pants):  I added a silk blouse, some lovely bling, and cute heels to upgrade my plaid pants.  Thus I accomplished both sparkle & shine. Thanks to Aunt Nancy for the necklace & earrings!!!

60’s Outfit (Scarf):  Adding a long sleeve shirt under this dress, makes it winter worthy!  To dress it up we placed the scarf over one shoulder and tied the ends to finish off the look!  The ruffles at the hemline incorporate some panache!

70’s Outfit (Skirt): Since mom’s plaid skirt is neutral, the pop of color in the scarf & earrings makes the outfit quite eye catching!  The scarf is silky which adds a touch of flair!
