I can't imagine anyone wearing this cute outfit anytime soon. It is supposed to be 112° again today, just like it was yesterday, and probably will be tomorrow. However, since Clara can wear any outfit any time of year, she gets this jumper today. :-)
Clara’s jumper has a classic 1960s A-Line silhouette, with an empire waistline, tied with a soft bow. Geometrical patterns were very popular in the 1960s, with lines, squares, and circles dominating the fashion industry. The innovative empire waistline adds an interesting angle to this outfit. A cute box pleat adds another geometrical accent to the skirt.
The bulky turtleneck worn under the jumper is a classic 1960s style with a wide ribbed neck and 3/4 length sleeves.
Clara’s shoes are patent-leather Mary Janes with low heels. The cute asymmetrical straps echo the angles of the jumper's waistline and box pleat.. The shoes are worn with thick knee-high ribbed stockings, similar to the turtleneck.
The original jumper was kelly green with a white turtleneck. The original shoes are black patent-leather, worn over white stockings. Bright, clear, primary colors were quite popular in the 1960s. Here are some popular colors for fashion from the decade.
