Suits for Spring - 1962

Suits were an important part of every woman's wardrobe back in the day. Women would often buy a new suit for Easter and then wear it for years and years. These incredible feats of tailoring are from 1962. Do you wear suits?

Love suits--- can hide a thick waist and other body "imperfections". attractive pictures!

I pretty much wear only suits, at least during the day. I find them easy to wear, and just love the way you can accessorise them.
I totally WANT that first Christian Dior- it is perfection!

Louise, you can't beat vintage suits for quality! They are so much better than anything that is made today. I hope you wear vintage!

I love a good vintage suit! I just got my first (which you can see here http://rosiealia.blogspot.com/2011/01/my-new-old-1940s-suit.html), and I love it! Vintage 40's and so useful! Love the above pictures, especially the Pierre Cardin one! xx

Gosh, I love that top one. I recall my mom wearing something like that in the early 70s. I would wear it.

I used to wear suits much more than I do now, but I still have several in my closet.

One great way to get more wear out of a vintage suit is to pair the jacket with jeans. So stylish!
