Women's jumpsuit featuring a sleeveless bodice with thin straps and wide gaucho style pants. The ensemble is paired with heeled sandals, hoop earrings, and a multi-layered beaded necklace. This illustration was featured in the July 1960 issue of Mademoiselle magazine in an article titled "Scoops: Playable Now", where it indicates that this ensemble is by designer Tori Owen in Rosewood Dacron fabric. Although the illustration featured in the magazine appears to be identical, both the jumpsuit and necklace are depicted in light brown instead of red, suggesting the colors were altered in production.
