Liz Claiborne vintage

Many months after I received this striped 
vintage set, I am finally wearing it.
When I received it as a hand me down from 
my great aunt, I automatically thought about 
passing it on to someone else as the skirt was too
long and the shirt was too big.

White and red striped shirt and skirt Liz Claiborne vintage
Grey flats Zara
Then I decided I would give it a shot.
Took it to the seamstress, had the skirt shortened
and the blouse altered. 
I am not too sold on the results but I think I 
just have to style it differently...

How would you wear it ?

I think it looks really cute! I love the color and the fact that the stripes are different form any that I've seen.

It's a bold piece! I'd probably style them as separates, and knot the blouse over a navy skirt, or a white one...

I might have the sleeves on the blouse shortened a little too.

That is a lovely set, what a nice hand me down. I think the pieces look lovely together, they would be fantastic as separates too! :)

Such a lovely, vibrant set! I think I'd split the pieces up and wear them separately. For the skirt, I'm thinking a navy blue, chocolate brown, or turquoise top might be really nice. The shirt be inclined to try try with denim on the bottom, or perhaps fitted black pants and a denim blazer. I just really see it working well with denim. :)

I think you styled it really well. It looks like a dress and a lot like a vintage, retro piece from the 60s or the 70s. I would wear the Blouse with a Navy Pencil Skirt, or the Skirt with a Simple but Classic White Blouse. I would wear them together with White Pumps with Wide Heels and maybe a long Pearl Necklace. =) Hope these help.
