It’s that time of year when spring is still trying to decide if it wants to come out and play, and people look at their closets and scratch their heads. If you are like me, you are desperately wanting to lighten up the wardrobe, but I’m afraid that if I get too optimistic then winter will return and I’ll be caught out in the cold unprepared.
It’s an old problem, and I imagine that in 1952 it was even harder to cope with a changing season as most people did not have the extensive wardrobes that we do today. The model above has put away the heavy woolens, and has opted for a “three season” suit – one made of lightweight wool or heavy cotton in a neutral color. Just add season appropriate accessories and the look is complete. (20 inch waist, optional)
