Cozy and Chic 50s Separates

Here is a 50s look that features a slim grey pencil skirt and soft wool sweater with a large mink fur collar. I found this look to be so comfortable to wear and so chic too I think. I was able to wear this look out and about when I added gloves and  green velvet bonnet and I could not have been happier with it. Since it was the holiday season I added a festive holly berry brooch from Luxulite. That proved to be my most favorite piece of jewelry this season and for good reason too. It was so gosh darn cute!

The skirt to this look was part of an early 50s suit and the sweater is a 50s piece as well that I picked up years ago. I think I need to wear it more because its so soft and snuggly to wear. . .And easy too! I have a whole drawer of sweaters that I need to feature up here more often I think. What do you think? Would you like to see more sweater looks? Under the sweater is a silk ivory blouse with loop trimmings.

This is an attempt at a more casual look, well 50s casual, at least. I think lots of my vintage is very formal and although there is nothing wrong with that I think more casual looks will not hurt once in awhile. I don't know about you but the weather here has been incredibly mild as of late! I had a green Christmas by me and a white New Years and I am waiting for a doozy of winter weather to hit. Until then it will be some light winter weather looks . . . Which are kind of nice although I am sort of kind of itching to break out my heavy winter coats! I only wear them a couple months of the year and I actually look forward to that. Oh well . . .


  1. I love sweaters! I have a reproduction of that sweater you're wearing, but the collar is fake fur and black. I had no idea it was a 50s style; I just liked it! Thank you for that info.

    Casual looks are great, although I don't like the bowling or golfing outfits; I guess it's casual but not sporty that I like. I'd love to see more 50s casual.

    1. Thank you! I'm so glad you liked it. I'm the same way in that I'm not too into those sporty casual looks. Hopefully this year I will get more casual up here.
