Stay Snug: Petticoat 1971
As winter fast approaches, my thoughts turn to snug layers and vintage woollens. Recent catwalk shows have been awash with tartan, so I’m taking a fun peek at some of the styles that were around back in 1971. Favourites included checks, suedes and mixed print wools. Accessories came in the form of casual army-style caps and baseball peaks with badges and brooches galore!
