Here’s another view of the green evening coat I like to show for St. Patrick’s Day – this time with a more versatile and elegant style from the same decade. These coats are from the 1950’s/1960’s. Lighter-weight fabrics and fresh colors make them suitable for mild evenings.
So fun, with a little sparkle, the one on left is more subtle with just a bit of pattern in the glossy pale yellow material. Both have easy, elegant styling but the coat on the right is in-your-face BRIGHT with a silky emerald floral jacquard and huge collar. VERY much a sign of it’s time.
It’s so important for me to have alternative disguises available . . . . . . . . . . . .
