Print Top for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Casual Version
We were gifted these shirts from NewChic, but I was not paid for writing my posts. All of our feelings are honest and true!
Quote of the day: “Aging is not lost youth, but a new stage of opportunity and strength.” Betty Friedan
My guess is your closet has a couple of print blouses in it. The last time we wore print tops was for our travel series (here) in the summer! So I thought I’d showcase some different print blouses for our usual three categories of casual, smart & dressy for the early springtime months. Even though the calendar may say spring, we are very aware that mother nature may not agree. Therefore, I believe long sleeves are very appropriate (along with other layers).
I should have titled this post “print blouses with white jeans” or at least given you some other options—I guess you can tell that I’m a sucker for white jeans! I think they’re such a nice backdrop for our darker prints. Even though most of us think of t-shirts as your casual top, I think a print blouse can play nice in the same category! At the end of each post, NewChic offers a discount for my readers. I have also included my feedback of the items! I could not always link to the exact same top, because mine & Nancy’s have been sold out.
50’s Outfit: I tried to pull out the teal blue in the blouse by wearing the same color shoes & accessories. I feel like the pictures don’t show the teal the same way I see it in real life!
Jeans: Ann Taylor (similar here)~~Vest: mom made (similar here)~~Top: Fassimo Eutti (similar here)~~Shoes: Schutz (similar here)~~Pin: (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Bracelet: (similar here)
60’s Outfit: Nancy’s shirt is a lightweight sheer material, so for cooler days, the black layering piece (under it) is ideal! In the summer, this shirt would be nice because it would cover your arms (from the sun) yet not be crazy hot!
70’s Outfit: I love the look of having a blouse stick out from under a sweater (kind of like the lace extenders I showed here).
Review of the 50’s model’s shirt: I ordered a small and while the body fits, if I wanted to roll up the sleeves they’d be a tad tight. It washed nicely and I didn’t even need to iron it! If I were to order again, I’d definitely go up at least one size in this particular shirt (even though the websites measurements say the shirt would fit). It could be extremely helpful to use the live chat line on the upper right corner of their website if you’re thinking of ordering anything! I opted for flat shipping (the most inexpensive version) and it did take almost a month. If you’re not in a hurry, this is fine, but if you want your product for a special event, you might want to consider the express options. (More feedback in the next two posts)
