Campus co-eds headed back to college in the season's best sweaters in 1958. Sweaters were worn with tight skirts for class or matched with pants for casual wear. Headbands were a popular accessory.
Darlene offered these sweaters in their exclusive "Minklam", a super soft blend of lambswool and fur fibers. If you've ever felt a Darlene sweater, you know what I mean. Interesting to note that Darlene also offered Darlene Tites, dyed to match the sweaters. I think they complete the look nicely. Sweaters sold for $11-$13 in 1958 (about $81-$96 in today's dollar).
Jantzen answered the sacque trend with this balloon backed cardigan in washable wool. Sweater sold for $16 in 1958 (about $118 in today's dollar).
Jane Irwill was another well known brand for separates. These bulky knit sweaters are all of wool and are matched with Jane Irwill skirts. Sweaters sold for $10-$16 in 1958 (about $74-$118 in today's dollar).
Jantzen offered these shaggy sweaters in a blend of wool and mohair. Sweaters sold for $13-$15 in 1958 (about $96-$111 in today's dollar).
Ship'n Shore offered these sweater tops in acrylic and cotton knits that were hand washable. Sold for $5-$6 in 1958 (about $37-$44 in today's dollar).
