This spring or summer weight, 1960s skirt suit in hot pink has a very Jackie O look, with its boxy, Chanel-style, cropped jacket and pencil skirt. The lightweight orchid pink fabric is rayon, with a slubbed texture, similar to silk shantung. The cardigan style jacket has a round neckline and no fastenings, although it is trimmed with decorative buttons and tabs along each side of the front opening. It is unlined, with three-quarter length sleeves. The straight skirt has a narrow waistband with darts for shaping just below it. It fastens with a metal zipper in the side seam and has a kick pleat at the hem, in back. The skirt is half-lined in pink taffeta. This striking 60s ladies’ suit is in excellent to mint condition.
