1940s Style Shorts

The 1940s were not the first decade to reveal women’s legs with a pair of shorts but they did propel it into popularity, especially with teens and pinup girls.  Vintage shorts fit high on the waist with a flared open leg ending at mid thigh for short shorts all the way down to the knee for pedal pushers. Retro shorts came in cotton prints, solid colors and denim in the later years. Popular sailor shorts had two rows of buttons in a contrasting color.  Matched with a knit shirt (early T-shirts) or blouse they were the ultimate casual ensemble.
