A classic silhouette rendered in stunning buttercream palette, this original and rare 1950's Lilli Ann skirt suit, is the perfect statement piece for your vintage wardrobe.
The notched V shaped neckline of the jacket boasts a stand up collar, and is framed by a pleated shawl design that runs along the edge of the shoulders, and joins in the centre under a beaded sash. Her button down front, accents the fitted cut and incredible seam work, drawing the eye to the cinched in waistline. Her full length sleeves frame this iconic piece.
The elegant fitted skirt, sits under the jacket, creating a timeless silhouette.
