1920s Style Women’s Pants, Trousers, Knickers

Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries. A pair of wide leg pants, modest top and long jacket or wrap is almost dress like and a very vintage alternative to dresses.

A pair of wide leg pants are a 1920s  alternative to dresses.

1920s pants for women were still a taboo clothing item. Some rebellious women wore men’s knickers or rolled pants in gender bending rolls. Others wore them only for sportswear such as hiking, skiing, biking, golfing and horseback riding.  The only acceptable form of nice pants or trousers were Asian inspired lounge pants or beach pajamas that were especially popular in 1930s.

Today many women who don’t like to wear dresses wear 1920s style pants for their costumes. They can be rustic pants for sport or flowing palazzo pants for a vintage inspired evening ensemble. Paired with a blouse, kimono jacket, cloche hat and pair of low heel oxfords the look is still elegant.
