This style is sometimes seen again in copycat fashions now, but was popular for very casual wear in the late ’60’s or the early ’70s. Not much to say about it excepting that it’s cute and very easy to wear for summer.
Super-casual with a huge metal zipper in front, you probably wouldn’t wear this to work in an office. It could be great almost anywhere more relaxed and perfect over a swimsuit.
One distinguishing characteristic is the combo of blue and brown in the print, which isn’t often seen but is a mix that I really like. It’s also a nice, sturdy, high-quality cotton weave.
As day-wear styles got really casual in the mid 1960’s, clothing became easier to wear but generally less well-made and elegant, as I see it. However, you can’t beat well-styled simplicity . . . . . . . .
