Taupe silk shirtwaist dress with matching belt and brown wool coat with fur trim, by Vera Maxwell, American, ca. 1954. The shirtwaist dress is an iconic look of the fifties, which Maxwell has executed well with this ensemble. Her choice of Harris Tweed for the jacket is no surprise, as she promoted the use of tweeds in all of her collections. A Maxwell touch, she often lined her jackets with the dress fabric, bringing a sense of harmony to the ensemble.
