Party dress


Gaucho pants
The Spanish influence of bolero jackets and gaucho pants was prevalent in the late Sixties. Further, this is the first time when a woman might wear pants out in the evening. This style of pants didn't last very long.


Left
McCall's 1968
A ravishing way to dress for evening is in this melting rich velvet. Bolero, heavily encrusted with golden embroidery, slips over lavish creamy crepe skirt with flamboyant billowing sleeves and the widest of collars. Pants, flared and flowing are caught by a chain cumberbund. By Kasper for Joan Leslie. Belt by Bagatelle.
