Late 1970’s plum corduroy women’s pants

Corduroy is one of the “comfort” fabrics — sturdy, warm, durable — and it was all the rage in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, available in a wide variety of colors and styles.  These fitted women’s pants are in the perennial fall favorite color range:  plums, burgundies, even eggplant.  These pants are in a shade bordering on plum, burgundy, even dark mulberry, with a lighter and dustier panel of muted purplish pink in a yoke-like effect.    Very striking!

1950’s Sears chocolate brown pedal pushers

Harkening back to a time when women and girls were not allowed to wear any kind of pants to school, church, or other social functions, the pedal pushers were a definite garment for weekends and summertime.  While some pedal pushers are fitted to the leg, these are more nipped in at the waist with a wider leg; they could even look like a skirt.  Finished with contrasting white stitching, buttoned at the side in true 1950’s fashion, and made for that all-American institution, Sears!  More views and sizing here.

Vintage Trouser Style : Rolled Up Cuffs

Perusing my cache of favorite street style blogs today, I came across this image and was smitten. I adore how she decided (fabulously so) to rock a pair of men’s vintage wool trousers but instead of letting them hang limply at normal length, she simply rolled up the hems. And the leather Oxford loafers without socks is perfect. It has given me a new reason to think twice about wearing men’s pants.
