Skirt Showcase for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: With a Dress Version

And to finish off this series of a skirt showcase, I’ll show the same monochromatic looks (grey, black & brown) with the skirt of a dress being the centerpiece.  

Quote of the Day: “I would like to recapture that freshness of vision which is characteristic of extreme youth when all the world is new to it.” Henri Matisse

This is easy enough by partially or totally covering up the top half of the dress with the same color that matches your tights and footwear.  This is so practical to get more usage out of your sleeveless or short sleeved dresses!   The printed skirt version (here) and the solid skirt version (here) are other ways to achieve this look!

Jodie’s Outfit: This dress was on the shorter side when I bought it so I had my mother add a strip of material at the bottom to lengthen it!  It might have looked better with  black tights & boots?

Nancy’s Skirt Showcase (Black ): This is Nancy’s go-to dress for weddings.  Here’s one way to make it seem less formal, yet we still show off the interesting pattern and hemline!

Charlotte’s Outfit (Brown):  I had mom pop a sweater tank over the top of this dress to act as a vest. Since the dress is a floral print, the outfit acts as a great transition to spring.
