Vintage Color-Block Maxi Plunge Neck Sweater Dress, 1960s
As the 1960s moved into the 70s, the fashion became filled with vivid vibrant colors and daring new silhouettes. Color-blocking was the trend and rising social changes challenged what was seen as appropriate for women in those days. Featuring a dramatic, plunging V-neckline, this vintage knit maxi dress is emblematic of late 60s style. Made from a poly-cotton blend, the bodice of the dress is made from a fine black rib-knit fabric that contrasts the colorful skirt. With square panels of terry cloth fabric in scarlet, blue, yellow, violet, tan, and seafoam green, the skirt mimics glints of light in darkness.
The textural shift intensifies the black rib-knit making it seem finer and darker. The high back, full sleeve length and the ankle-length hem add a demure element to the dress that compliments the sexier side. The dress closes down centre front with black plastic buttons. At the wrist, each sleeve has a keyhole detail. Unlined and in excellent condition, this vintage 60s dress has been professionally eco dry cleaned and pressed. High-quality vintage pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself.
