Wearing your A-Line Skirt for a Dressy Occasion

A-Line Skirts for the 50's, 60's, & 70's

A-Line Skirt for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Dress Up Version

Quote of the day: ” Social change is better achieved by being for something than against something.” Helene Gayle

The last post in this series of wearing an A-Line skirt revolves around a dressy date!  Who doesn’t like a fancy night on the town once in a while?  And what better way to get ready for it then by showing off your legs and adding some bling!

This silhouette is usually quite flattering for most women. One of the tricks is where the hemline falls on your legs. The three of us are wearing a-line skirts that fall in different places. Nancy, the 60’s model, is showing her entire knee. My skirt, (the 50’s model) is right at my knee. And mom’s skirt (the 70’s model) falls below her knee. Your hemline can be a personal preference, but it’s nice to have a variety in your closet.

I tried to show that this item  can be versatile for many situations.  The three of us wore these exact same skirts for a business day (here) and casual day(here).

60’s Outfit: Nancy’s shirt is actually the kind that is slightly open in the back.  Therefore she likes to wear a cami under it. The color of this shirt does not match the colors of the stripes in her a-line skirt yet it’s in the same basic colorway.
