1960 – Bright and Bulky Sweaters

Wear a vibrant color and don't forget a scarf

If you want inspiration for a vintage 1960’s winter outfit, you’ve come to the right place. Each day this week I have highlighted a different sweater look that came from the pages of mid-century women’s magazines.

Today we see vibrant colors and mixed prints from the July 1960 edition of Glamour magazine. Their message to readers was to wear bulky sweaters in bright colors and add a silk scarf for extra interest. The women above on the left is wearing a shock red cross over brushy mohair sweater and wool plaid pants by CoCo sportswear. The sweater sold for $23 in 1960. The pants? $13. The violet outfit on the right came from Jantzen. Here’s how they described the sweater.
