The Gingham Jacket for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Casual Version
Quote of the Day: “Work hard and be kind and amazing things will happen.” Conan O’Brien
So it’s a jacket. Then the easy way to make your gingham casual is with jeans and flats, right? Mom always wonders why I pair almost everything with jeans and I tell her, it’s the go-to item of the era. Just like saddle shoes were back in the golden days, right? This gingham jacket has been quite the trooper…I’ve folded in the lapels, pushed up the sleeves, trekked it from house to house and it still has kept it’s shape & didn’t become overly wrinkly! That’s considered amazing, in my book. If you didn’t see the other varieties already, you can look them over here (the dressy look) and here (the business look).
50’s Gingham Jacket: I paired the jacket with my new favorite white coated jeans. Then I added splashes of color to brighten up the look. I actually tried wearing the scarf without the knots in the ends, but since I am short in stature, it seemed too overpowering.

60’s Gingham Jacket: Nancy just happened to get these darling flats at Target the other day. And the necklace adds vibrancy to the outfit since you don’t actually see the apricot shirt much.
70’s Gingham Jacket: Mom loves her accessories so she got to wear bracelets on each arm—otherwise known as wrist candy! It was a good way to add some brighter color to the mix.
