50’s 60’s 70’s
Skirt Showcase for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Solid Skirt Version
Quote of the Day: “What shapes our lives are the questions we ask, refuse to ask, or never think to ask.” Sam Keen
Again let’s bring that skirt out of the closet in anticipation of spring, yet being realistic that it’s still chilly some of the days (here in Colorado, we realize it can still snow into May). By wearing the same color top to bottom except for your skirt, you are promoting the beauty of this piece of clothing. Here’s a hint to making this concept work for women of all temperatures: You can layer unlimitedly! I’ve been known to wear 3 pairs of tights (one even being fur lined) at one time! The first in this series was showing the printed skirt (here)! Today we’ll have the solid skirt be the standout! If you’re wearing dark, opaque tights, you can even get away with wearing a skirt that otherwise seems too short.
50’s Skirt Showcase (Grey): Since I wanted to show off the front of the skirt, I did the half-tuck trick with my sweater!
60’s Skirt Showcase (Black): This pencil skirt has been a perfect find for Nancy. I know an a-line skirt is the one “they” say fits every woman the best, but I think the pencil skirt is a close second!

70’s Skirt Showcase (Brown): Again, my mom made this skirt. The material was given to her because the giver said she’d never use it. And I had her wear her cardigan backwards so the front was more solid!
