In the 60s and 70s women were becoming more independent, and with that came the popularity of wearing pants and pantsuits made of easy care fabrics.
This pantsuit, by Georgia Griffin of MIami, is made of a red white and blue geometric textured polyester knit, with enormous wide lapels, flattering princess seaming in the front, princess darting in the back, and faux tab pockets.
