Rosie the Riveter

Few images are as enduring or distinctive as that of Rosie the Riveter. This no-nonsense woman in overalls became a symbol of resourcefulness and the wartime spirit; and continues to evoke these things today. And since Rosie the Riveter is such a classic, I decided to share an outfit inspired by her today! Rosie the Riveter
The foundation of this outfit is the Yves Saint Laurent jumpsuit; in a tailored ’40s style, it mimics the overalls worn by countless women in factories and shipyards during the wartime years. But this outfit takes on a shade of glamour through its burgundy crocodile heels, embossed handbag, and ladylike jewellery. Tortoiseshell-effect sunglasses and a classic scarf in bright, hopeful colours give a final dose of ’40s flair to this wearable and timeless look!
