Late 1970s Oscar De La Renta Ribbon Silk Chiffon Four Piece Coral Skirt Set
This late 1970s set from Oscar de la Renta has a bit of a bohemian vibe to it and that combined with the bright color is heavenly. It is made up of four separate pieces. The top, skirt, a camisole meant to be worn under the too and that fantastic huge gold tassel belt. Having so many pieces makes it very versatile set since you can mix and match them with other pieces in your existing wardrobe. The color is a bright red-coral that has a tiny floral pattern printed throughout for the prettiest touch of contrast. The silk on the top also has a ribbon effect so that parts of the silk have a different finish and different transparencies as a result. The silk is light in weight and floats beautifully over the body once on. The skirt has a wide panel of elastic that is finished in a gold thread. This makes it very easy and comfortable to wear. The skirt below that is cut loose and easy through the hips and then widens out slightly as it near the hem. It has a intricate print covering the entire silk surface. The hem is finished with a small edging of more gold. The inner camisole is a simple cut that slips on to wear and is made from a solid colored silk crepe. The top that goes over this has that ribbon finish mentioned above and it has tiny lines of gold metallic thread running through it following the lines of the ribbons. The neckline is ruffled and the body of the top is loose and full. Each sleeve is also full and billows out above a ruffled cuff. It comes with a matching cord and metallic gold thread belt that slips into place and has an absolutely huge triple tassel finish at the front. You could probably also wear this belt as a neck piece and leave everything else loose and easy. It a fabulous set and having four pieces makes it so versatile. Excellent condition with a note about the skirt below
All the pieces are unlined. The skirt has elastic from the waist the hips and the camisole and tunic top slip on. The cuffs also have elastic . The elastic on the waist and the cuffs seems to have stretched. It looks fine but feels slightly loose. It is priced accordingly. Perfect condition otherwise. The set will fit a MED-LRG if you don't use the camisole which seems small for this set given the loose top and the skirt that has stretched a bit. The camisole is more a SML-MED so if you are that size the outer top will be really loose and easy and you might want to get the skirt tightened.
