NWOT, Vintage 80's Beth Brett size S brown knitted jumper & skirt

£24.99

Product description

This is a stylish knitted jumper and skirt set from the 1980's by celebrated designer Beth Brett.

The yarn is a marled brown and beige and feels soft. It is probably wool, although there are no labels. The top has a round neck and long sleeves, with ribbed cuffs and waistband. It has a striking cape style feature around the neckline which is attached at the neckband and drapes attractively around the shoulders and is zig zag shaped at the edge. It is populated with teardrop shaped transparent beads which catch the light and give the piece an attractive drape.

The skirt is a below the knee length. It is a slim straight shape in a ribbed knit, and has an elasticated waistband.

This is an attractive ensemble that could be worn with pixie boots for a stylish 80's look, but each piece could also be worn separately, the top would look elegant with a simple pair of jeans. Remember Molly Ringwald's style in the Brat Pack films of the 80's and you will be on the right track.
