Your 60s Fashion Tips
LITTLE SUMMER SUIT
The little summer suit always has a smartly tailored open front
Chanel-type jacket over a sleeveless dress with open neckline.
STOCKINGS TOO TIGHT If your feel are uncomfortable, check the size of your stockings. They may be too small. If they are, you will have as much discomfort as you would if your shoes were too short - more, in fact, for stockings tend to shrink from perspiration.

Fashion News In Knits
By GAILE DUGAS NEW YORK (NEA) - All of the fashion news for late spring and summer is good. It tells a story of lightweight knitted silks that shed wrinkles, of printed cashmeres, of ribbed, knitted silks gay with print and of a-man-made miracle fiber that is light, chic and washable.
In the past, women who doted on the luxury and soft texture of silk have sometimes sighed and given it up in favor of what they felt was 'a' more practical fabric. But the new knitted silks combine the luxury of silk with the ability to shed wrinkles immediately. They are, in fact, the perfect summer travelers.
Printed cashmeres in truly beautiful colorings burst upon the fashion world this spring. Against 3 downy white background, brilliant florets of rose, aqua or yellow bloom forth. The printed cashmere cardigan worn with a simple, sleeveless, sheath makes a costume of 'elegance.
Courtelle is the newest of the man-made fibers. It is light, cool and washable but, of course, most man-made fibers are. The difference lies in the fact that this newest fabric has genuine chic. It has been used for knitted suits that are truly handsome. No matter what your summer vacation plans — this country or Europe—these are fashions worth your investigation. 1962
60's Fashion Sense
1969 San Francisco, California:
1968 Double Knits in in Navy, Yellow, Green and Turquoise from Sears. Made from Perma Prest® textured Polyester, you never have to iron them! Hand wash and drip dry. Note that the hemline is now clearly above the knee.
Daahhrling...have you seen Du Pont's new line of girdles? You simply must try one! OK, so maybe a girdle isn't high fashion, but wearing one could make or break your look! "Lumpy" wasn't IN in the 1960s either!
