Think pink… look beautiful
Ladies’ Home Journal – March 1961
Pink is the most feminine color in the rainbow — and, in one shade or another, can be the most becoming color to every woman.
Pink checks, pink prints, pink sheers, pink stripes and plain pinks are in abundance in every fabric department.
Pink is a morning, noon and night color — it can be beguiling or sophisticated. We have chosen the prettiest pinks to prove our point. Look for gay pink accessories as a complement to or to contrast with your favorite summer dress.
Dress shown below: One of the prettiest border prints of the season blossoms with long-stemmed carnations. The background is a fine white pinpoint pique.
On the bodice, we have appliqued three separate flowers with a zigzag stitch. Wear it with pink and white bracelets and pink shoes.
Pink dresses and hats
Pink checks with an overprint of pink roses are the charm of this ladyfied shirtwaist dress. Matching headband and enameled butterfly for the hat make it a costume. Dress, Vogue Design no. 5240.
What could be more romantic than this sheer Dacron and cotton print in a Persian pattern? The full skirt falls from a simple bodice with shoestring straps. Wear with bright pink shoes and belt.
A rough straw breton is always becoming, but add pink carnations or a little girl pink headband if you want to fascinate. The circle of flowers can also be worn separately.
A pink evening dress and accessories
The epitome of pink is an evening dress with blush-pink organdy skirt bordered in cotton-satin flowers in the same shocking pink as the bodice. The romantic young two-and-a-half yard stole takes advantage of the double border.
A pretty pink belt, a matching chiffon square and a carnation all in the same shade of pink can be worn together as shown or separately.
Another idea for a pink belt would be to combine three shades of 1″ ribbon, stitching them together lengthwise.
Pink slacks and linen
Slim pink whipcord slacks topped by a tunic in the newest length — very effective at home or by the sea.
The stylized print is bound with white cotton braid. Her hobo bag in matching fabrics by Morris Moskowitz. Thong sandals by Ben Sommers.
Crisp, pink linen — cool, uunperturbed and ours is machine-pleated, with an easy-fitting double-breasted top. Sally Victor’s pink straw hat. Chalk white gloves echo the buttons.
