In Vogue-November 1963-At Home Fashions


Here’s my second post featuring fashion highlights from Vogue Magazine in November  1963 and it’s focus is on  loungewear.   Clothing for entertaining at home was very much in style.  The fashion conscious woman’s wardrobe included chic  hostess gowns, dinner  pajamas and peignoir sets.  Lingerie blurred the line between sleepwear and cocktail wear.  Take a look at the casually elegant designer  lounging outfits below. What I like about them is they’re informal and comfortable, while still managing to look glamorous.   A much classier look for hanging around the house than the sweat pants and T-shirts commonly worn today!
