Grey 1950s pullover sweater checkerboard trim | XS-M

1950s Clothing



This checkerboard-trimmed 1950s “sweater girl” pullover top is knit of the softest charcoal grey orlon acrylic. The lightweight sweater has bands of ribbed trim at the hem, round neckline, and also finishing the short sleeves. The ivory and grey checked panel at the front neckline has a fluffier texture, similar to angora knit. The sweater hem is relatively short, typical of tops from the 1950s, and will pair well with a circle or pencil skirt, high-waisted pant, or vintage-style denim. This darling 1950s pullover sweater is unlined, with no fastenings. It is in excellent condition.
