Vintage Advert: Wippette Sportswear - Seventeen 1967




                                                                 
                                                                             WIPPETTE
                                                   EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED

Valrie likes her brim pulled down. Karen flips for the tortoise chains on her jumper. Leslie pats the velvet collar on her mini-chesterfield. Philips can't get over her velvet vest and short-cut pants. Darby feels like a Kennedy in her hacking jacket. They all dig Wippetry - hats, bags and opaque tights. And everyone must have "The Sweater" in soft lambswool. Everything in 100% wool plaid or tortoise velveteen. From $14 for skirts to $40 for the mini-coat - at the important stores. Or write to Dept. T, Wippette Sportswear, 1407 Broadway, New York.

  1. i love that this is sportswear - so stylish and fun. Now everyone calls sweatpants and pullovers sportswear - i prefer the former.

  2. Me too, you could be casual, comfortable and still actually 'dressed' really well,I blame the decline on the late 80s, that was the start of it...
