This late 1950s jacket nearly didn’t make it up here. I nearly just tucked it away into my own completely overflowing closet.
It is 100% Rayon and, as the tag says, is was “styled by Albro REGD. Suits, Coat, Skirts MELBOURNE”.
This elegant spring/autumn weight coat has padded shoulders and a lovely flared skirt creating an hourglass silhouette on any body shape.
Wear it over fancy going-out clothes in its true vintage elegant manner, or with jeans and boots for a more modern bo-ho look.
The 3/4 sleeves would look amazing with gloves or a long-sleeved fitted top in a bright colour.
It is currently a size 14, generous around the shoulders, but could be tailored down easily to a 10.
