Women in the 1930’s didn’t wear pants too often, but for summer days at the beach or when playing a sport, pants were not only acceptable but highly fashionable! For daywear, a pair of white or navy blue high waisted wide leg pants with a nautical or sailor look were trendy. On the beach, women wore soft, flowing, very wide leg Beach Pajamas or palazzo pants. They were often in soft pastel colors or big geometric prints such as stripes and checks. Many had attached overall straps or were a full jumpsuit.
