1960's Black knit dress

For really loving colorful prints and loud patterns, I'm also all about the simplicity of a basic and neutral color palette.  I'd say that my favorite fashion statements are simple black, camel, and/or gray outfits with a classic and modern feel to them.  It's always fun to bring in a little pop of pattern and color with jewelry or a purse.  I found this dress and thought it would be the perfect fall staple.  Worn with camel boots and perhaps a cropped coat when it starts to get cool outside...ahh, perfection!  Its from Campus Casuals of California and was made in the 1960's.  The design details are on the back with an adorable section of fabric that folds over and has 4 large buttons.  The sleeves are 3/4 length and the fabric is a wool knit that has some stretch to it.  Check it out in the Etsy shop today!
