Fashion as Couples Therapy (Part 7) Baby It's Cold Outside!

Brrrrr!! Old Man Winter blew in with a vengeance and is it cold!!  Even down here in South Tejas, it's cold (okay relatively speaking).  In 2014 we have "polar vortexes" which I really don't understand.  Back in the 70s, we just called it cold weather.  But not to worry, polar vortex or not, with His n' Hers coordinates form the Big Book catalogs, you could stay extra cozy warm with that special someone!!

"Oh, baby, it's cold outside....."  Yes it is.  But what better way to snuggle up to your main squeeze than in matching double breasted pea coats with matching scarves or matching faux-wool shirt jackets!  I like the guy's hat too - very suave!!

"Oh the weather outside is frightful, but inside it's most delightful.."  And what better way to snuggle up in warmth by the fire than in matching sweaters!! One thing about the 70s is that they had a thing for collars.  If you wore those collars out today, you'd get some strange looks!

Brrrrr!!  For that really cold wintery blast, you need to bring out the heavy coats.  Still that's no reason to not have matching His n' Hers styles!!  Here they even come in plaid for that Northern lumberjack look!!

This is just like the first pic, except that the guy that WAS with Kathy is now with Karen and the guy that WAS with Kay in the second pic is now with Kathy.  What's going on here?!?!?  Well it was the 70s after all!!

Ahh yes, in the 70s, you weren't a REAL couple unless everything matched - wool hats included. Heck they even have matching pants on!

Yes, even the scarves had to match.  Except, wait a minute here, what is that guy doing in a non-matching hat?!?!?  That is a clear signal that he is wanting his "space".  Not a good sign for this couple at all!

Yep, the matching leather trenchcoats with matching plaid "mufflers".  I hope it is was chilly in the studio because those coats look absolutely suffocating!

Still, no matter how bundled up a couple was in their coats, scarves, and hats, there is one piece of winter apparel that is timeless...

Sweaters says it all!!!  (especially in Wintuk Orlon Acrylic!)

Programming note: I posted early this week since I'm going to be out for a few days.  Next week I'll resume posting on Mondays.  That will give you extra time to dig these groovy winter coordinates. Keep those comments coming, but I probably won't be able to reply for a while.


  1. Your timing is right! Boy is it cold outside! Always enjoy your posts...
