Country Clothes, 1967 - Part 1

There's something about the crispness in the air of fall and wearing woolens, leathers, plaids, and boots that brings to mind tramping about in the fields and woods of the great outdoors.   The photos were taken in Ireland.  The clothes are all American classics that would serve you just as well today as they did 45 years ago in 1967.

Above:  Camel wool coat by Dani Jrs., sueded calf mini skirt by Highlander, camel hair sweater by Hadley, leather boots by Celine.  Note the textured tights and chunky leather belt that complete the look.  Cow not included.

Wool monk's cloth midi coat by Daniel Hechter for Devonbrook, worn with a matching fedora hat and shiny patent boots by Desco.

Hard to tell in this black and white photo, but the coat and culottes are both of brown leather, both by Viola Sylbert for Albert Alfus.  Worn with a black wool turtleneck sweater by James Kenrob for Dalton.  Chunky leather belt by La Bagagerie.

Animal print rabbit fur overblouse and camel wool mini skirt, both by Chuck Howard for Townley.  Worn with black leather gloves that have little zippers by Sant'Angelo for Crescendoe.

Sportwhirl beige cashmere dress buttons at the shoulders.  Worn with matching tights and cardigan sweater.

More country clothes tomorrow!
