Im No Pansy


Im completely obsessed with these floral high-waisted silk trousers. In the 40s during the war the women did not have silk for their nylons because the silk was needed for these special type of parachutes that were needed for the war effort. So instead the women started going to work and opted for a high waisted, low-crotch style as shown here. These gorgeous pants mirror the time of the pioneering women who went to work while their husbands fought overseas. Think Kate Hepburn (ooo she had style!) All hail the pioneering women!

Im kind of wondering if I should taper these and make them skinny. I can only imagine how amazing they would look peg-legged. Hmm...

Wearing vintage silk trousers, Heritage button up shirt, and Steve Madden wedges.

I thought those pants were a skirt at first. I kind of like them more as pants...

No keep them wide! Thats what gives them such a great hippie nu-folk vibe :) love how you paired this with a button up.

LOVE THEM!!

Emmy said...

hmmm I'm thinking you should keep them wide legged. I love the look and for some reason I think it'll have more longevity as a style over skinnier styles. Plus, at least then you'll always know they'll fit you!

corrie said...

So pretty! Keep them wide. They would look awesome pegged but I love the vibe they have here, so flowy and free.

Lucy said...

Annie said...

You're like Katherine Hepburn on Flower Steroids! I personally love them widelegged - tappering them might look too 80's but HEY if that's what you are into! Wedge are freakin dope :)

lovelovelove. i think they look good either way - although i can imagine them tapered with the buttonup, too, and it might be pretty freaking amazing. kind of like a cooler, less spandex-y version of a floral legging.

I love the print! They're perfect paired with the knotted shirt. I guess the consensus so far is to leave them wide, but I'd like to see them tapered.

So pretty!! xox

Frosti said...

Stunning!

ChicGeek said...

i think you could rock it as a pencil skirt.

Lily said...

nah leave them the way they are. Unless you're brilliant at sewing, I know from experience that buggerising around with something that's already fabulous is disastrous.

Lauren said...

I love them wide legged! They look amazing on you.

I don't get it-women didn't have silk for stockings so they wore silk pants instead? oh well. it's a cute print.
