1950s Latte Brown Striped Bow Collar Smock Blouse, by Horrockses, 39in Bust
Quaint 1950s light brown striped blouse with a lovely ribbon style bow collar by the coveted British label Horrockses. This is quite an usual shirt, not just for the colour but because I believe this to be a maternity blouse due to the cut. There is no dart to the bust, and is very loose unlike its style classic from the decade, which leads me to my conclusion, making this very rare! But do not worry, it can be worn by anyone, and looks equally stylish loose or tucked into your favourite skirt.
