Hi MP readers! My name is Nefferth, the creative mind behind Mode Plus, a personal style blog where I do fashion the Emotionista way. Fashion is about personal interpretation and creativity. I truly believe that a woman can wear whatever she wants as long as she believes in herself. I always say: “wear your clothes, don’t let your clothes wear you”. And this motto goes beyond any size, shape or form you may be. Embrace what you have in this moment and let’s get some outfits done these coming months!
I love the 1940′s and my inner fashion child is urging me to try out the shorter version of the retro playsuit. The last time I actually wore a playsuit, I think I was in my pre-teens. Spring has arrived and summer is around the corner. A perfect opportunity to try out this fashion adventure avec the playsuit.
According to this article, the playsuit emerged in the 1940′s. Back in the day, it was worn for sporting activities. A fashionable way for a lady to dress up her top and shorts after playing tennis or badminton. Since the 1940′s, we have seen the playsuit reappear in various prints and material. Recall the 1970′s polyester bold colors and prints? And what about the 1980′s version: pleated front? Whatever version came by, I can’t deny it’s appeal. Not shorts, not a dress just inbetween.
In this post I will show you one playsuit and three looks. Because each person is different, I will let you choose which look you’ll rock for work, weekend or party.
Next post I’ll introduce you another playsuit in a fresh minty color. Stay tuned ….. Nefferth
